Bristol, UK-based recruitment specialist DBC Group is branching out with the
launch of Logistics Job Shop, its new dedicated online job board for the
logistics and supply chain sectors.
www.LogisticsJobShop.co.uk covers all elements of staffing and employment
for permanent, temporary and contractual jobs and also addresses assessment,
training and consultancy specifically for the logistics industry in the UK
"Having spent most of my career in logistics before setting up a traditional
recruitment company, I believe the timing is right to launch an online job
board as I feel there is a real gap in the market to provide quality
employment opportunities for the logistics and supply chain sectors", says
David Coombes, Managing Director of Logistics Job Shop.
The logistics industry currently employs over 2.3 million people in the UK,
which accounts for approximately 8% of the UK working population.
Around 25% of all recruitment in the UK is now done online, and the company
is also aiming to capitalise on the growth in social networking to reach its
target candidate audience. Online recruitment is expected to overtake
offline by the end of 2012.
"It’s clear that the recruitment industry needs to be online as this will be
how the 18-34 age group in particular will source jobs – so we see it as a
natural extension of our services", says David Coombes.
The online job board model is easy to use and suits the demands of today’s
busy employers looking for a simple forum to place jobs, as well as
candidates researching opportunities online. Logistics Job Shop will also
offer CV and consultancy services.
"We see Logistics Job Shop becoming a focal point for the logistics and
supply chain industry and providing an online forum and centre of excellence
for impartial advice about the sector", David adds.
Logistics Job Shop is owned by DBC Group and is actively supported by
Keswick Enterprises, a UK-based private equity company focused on supply
