Logistics

Potentially the biggest area of Astra’s expertise is in Logistics recruitment. We have four specialist consultants that cater for the industry and each individual is more than capable of filling both senior and entry level positions. The typical Logistics vacancies that we recruit for are transport planners, night shift managers and warehouse operatives.

Our client base is forever expanding but despite its size we remain well equipped to take on new business partners. Ongoing recruitment partnerships include the likes of Hermes, DPD, UK Mail and Palmer & Harvey. We believe our team is so strong and experienced that we can cover any aspect of a business’s Logistics needs.

Our commitment to client care is mirrored by how we treat and support candidates looking for Logistics jobs. We make it our mission to get to know our candidates, understanding their history and where they want to be. We show a genuine interest in their career journey and will always go the extra mile to help them find suitable logistics and transport jobs.

Candidates: If you are looking for jobs in Logistics, from operative levels up to executive, you can count on Astra to accommodate your needs and skill set. Please get in touch with one of our Logistics recruitment consultants because they are happy to help you on your next career adventure.

Clients: If you are a company that constantly advertises Logistics jobs and you'd like some help along the way then Astra are confident that we can become a valuable asset. The pedigree and status of our previous and existing clients should reflect our ability to handle both large and small scale projects. If you would like to know more about how we can assist you with Logistics recruitment, then please do not hesitate in contacting our team.
