In an age where people want their products faster and in bigger quantities than ever before, very little is known about the process that takes raw product from production to shelf.This is where Supply Chain comes into play!If you were to look up the meaning of Supply Chain in a dictionary it would say the following “a system of organisations, people, technology, activities, information and resources involved in moving a product or service from supplier to customer” Anyone within the supply chain world will know that this is a very simple explanation for a very complicated process, and we at GRG understand why. Whether it be to meet demand for Demand Planners or to find the whereabouts of a Warehouse Manager we know how to provide the supply.
A chain is only as strong as its weakest...
As the saying goes a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and we are firm believers that the most important part of any supply chain are the people in it. We pride ourselves on being the place that the best in the market come to in order to search for a new role and also the people that the biggest companies come to because of that.A client once compared the supply chain in their company to the recruitment process we were working on together. “The recruitment process is a lot like a supply chain, you start off with a raw material, something that needs help in defining its purpose and position in the world, we then move that product through multiple logistical processes in the interviewing stages, each time helping improve the products quality, and then finally after tender negotiations, customer service management and distribution coordination we finally take that product to market!”
Why Supply Chain & why now?
The Middle East is fast establishing itself as the major focus for some of the world’s leading organisations, after coming out the other-side of the global financial downturn we have noticed that companies are looking to make savings by any means necessary, and a well run supply chain can mean a difference of millions of pounds, dollars or dirham’s every year. With this in mind we are seeing a trend in the growing need to optimise and streamline supply chain processes, concepts like Kaizen, LEAN Management and Six Sigma are becoming highly valued assets in potential candidates.We all strive to be the best at what we do, but not everyone succeeds hence the need for optimisation processes within a supply chain to make it more efficient. And that’s exactly what we do within the Supply Chain function at GRG.By being in contact with the best candidates in the market we are able to offer our clients the type of profiles that will not only sustain their supply chain, but will actively strive to make it better.
