Testimonials

I had hit the ceiling in my previous role and the work life balance was just not there. I came into recruitment as it offered a challenging, yet rewarding opportunity for people who are willing to work hard. I loved the idea of ‘you get out as much as you put in.’  
The social side of the company is like nothing I know of anywhere else. I talk to my friends in numerous industries: trade, hospitality, accountancy. None have anything like we do! The office culture at WR is great! The atmosphere is always positive and relaxed, with the music playing and an open plan setup really helping this.
Here at WR I feel completely valued from my manager and both directors which makes me want to go to work each day. Enjoying what you do cannot be understated.
For anyone willing to work hard and put in the effort I would definitely recommend joining WR!

Jack Loydd

Testimonials

The company took on a few other people and I expressed an interest in training and managing those people, so in my second year in recruitment I took over managing the team and drove it forward. It went quite quickly from a team of 2 or 3 up to a team of 17 in a few years.

What will Brexit mean for talent in logistics? While the effects of Brexit are being felt across the majority of industries, somewhere the UK’s exit from the EU could have a particularly acute effect is transport and logistics. As a sector that plays a crucial role in the UK’s infrastructure and overall health of the economy – understanding the potential consequences of Brexit is important for businesses and employees alike. With companies already struggling to find workers, and January fast approaching – here’s some of the key areas where Brexit could affect talent in logistics. Brexit and talent in logistics Increased demand for customs experts One notable shift in the situation for talent in logistics as a result of Brexit uncertainty is an increase in demand for workers with customs experience. In fact, our company data has shown 183% rise in demand year on year for workers with an understanding of the customs clearance process, documentation knowledge, tariffs & rate negotiation skills. This could be set to increase further under a no-deal Brexit – with a UK exit from the single market still on the cards. In fact, the TUC recently stated there will be a need for ‘up to 5,000 extra people to cope’ with Brexit-related challenges. ​Exacerbated talent shortages In addition to this – there is a chance Brexit could further exacerbate existing shortages of talent in logistics – most notably the age gap. Currently, there is a dearth of young talent available to replace an ageing workforce. With only 9% of the workforce younger than 25, and 45% over 45 years old – the industry will collectively need innovative solutions to ensure that strong talent pipelines can be built. However, a reduction in available EU workers could make this a monumental task. Limit EU professionals Finally, a restriction to the availability of EU professionals is perhaps the most obvious Brexit factor threatening talent in logistics. In fact, the chief executive of the Freight Transport Association (FTA) stated that ‘non-UK EU workers make as vital contribution to the logistics sector as their counterparts do in the National Health Service and the construction industry.’ In addition to this, in the FTA’s Logistics Skills Report 2019, declining EU net migration is cited as the main factor causing a 43% rise in job vacancies in the transport and storage industry over the past 24 months. The report states that ‘the logistics sector is facing serious challenges in the recruitment and retention of labour: 59,000 HGV drivers alone are urgently needed to keep operations afloat. Businesses within the logistics sector are reliant on access to EU workers to help fill job vacancies; these workers currently constitute 13% of the entire logistics workforce.’ Access to quality talent While uncertainty is the prevailing feeling amongst the logistics industry towards Brexit (along with most of the country), what’s undeniable is that exiting EU will have a sizeable impact on the skills situation in the country. In an industry where shortages are already an issue – this means access to quality talent is absolutely crucial. At WR Logistics, regardless of the effect of Brexit, we’ll ensure your business has the necessary resources to cope. Our consultants possess an in-depth understanding of the sector and the needs of our clients and candidates. We’ve managed staffing requirements for some of the largest organisations in the UK, covering positions of all levels. We connect the best talent in the logistics industry with exciting career opportunities at fantastic organisations. To make your logistics job search as seamless as possible, we offer a range of services: contingent, exclusive, and our brand new model, WR Search. This retained service saves businesses time and money, providing state-of-the-art insight, behavioural analysis, and advanced tools for candidates to land their dream jobs.

How will F-gas regulations effect access to talent? ​In HVACR, the ongoing skills shortage is a well-known topic of discussion. Organisations have increasingly found it difficult to fill roles in recent years, with 91% of organisations in the UK struggling to find workers with the right skills over the past 12 months.On top of this, with the UK making it a priority to cut carbon emissions –many different pieces of legislation have been introduced which could boost the demand for skilled professionals and affect access to talent. As an industry that has a substantial influence in reducing the UK carbon footprint and creating sustainable environments – this is bound to affect HVACR.For instance, the government has put plans in place for an 80% reduction on carbon emissions on commercial buildings by 2050. However, one piece of legislation that could substantially affect HVACR is the upcoming F-gas regulations. Here’s what you need to know.Access to talent: What are the F-gas regulations? In recent years, as the UK looks towards a low-emission future, some of the most commonly used refrigerants have fallen out of favour due to their damaging impact on the environment, with many being phased out for less harmful alternatives. For this reason, strict regulations around F-gas were introduced to control the use of fluorinated greenhouse gases in Europe.F-gas is contained in most commercial refrigeration units, transporting heating around the system either away from an area to cool it, or towards an area to heat it. Changes in legislation will affect a wide range of cooling systems and industries, including remote retail refrigeration, walk in fridges, cellar coolers and chillers.As a result, any owners and manufacturers of refrigeration and air conditioning systems located in the EU and UK need to ensure their systems are compliant with these regulations. By January 2020, all refrigerants with a GWP above 2500 will be banned. Those with equipment affected by the upcoming ban will have to either:Retrofit the existing systemService the system using reclaimed refrigerantReplace the system with one that uses a lower GWP refrigerantCompanies will be liable for prosecution if they do not comply with regulations. Under the new rules, it is increasingly difficult to delegate responsibilities to service and maintenance contractors. A person found guilty of an offence under the regulations is liable, on summary conviction in a Magistrates’ Court, to a fine up to the statutory maximum (£5,000) and an unlimited fine on conviction in the Crown Court.How will this influence talent?So, how will the F-gas regulations influence access to talent? In order to implement legislation, a large amount of manpower will be needed. Non-compliant units across the country are going to be refitted and replaced, and all newly manufactured units will have to meet F-gas regulations. A vast array of professionals will be needed to carry out a number of tasks, including arranging appropriate refrigerant recovery, servicing, disposal and leakage checks.This likely mean that demand will skyrocket for highly qualified staff. Personnel will all have to possess a recognised national refrigerant handling qualification, such as a City or Guilds 2078, CITB equivalent, or a European qualification of the same level. However, while demand for these staff will rise, legislation changes are coinciding with the UK’s exit from the EU. Currently, a large amount of highly qualified HVACR talent is being hired from the EU. However, with EU immigration to the UK set to be slashed by 80% after we leave the bloc, according Sajid Javid, a drop in available talent pools could highly exacerbate the situation. A complicated pictureWhile the F-gas regulations could potentially have a huge effect on access to talent, this is far from the only factor influencing skills shortages and, indeed, the entire HVACR sector. With an ageing workforce rapidly approaching retirement, and a lack of interest from young professionals in pursuing a career in the sector – it’s important that businesses adopt smart talent strategies in order to cope with today’s challenges, and build pipelines for the future.At WR HVACR, we have unfettered access to highly qualified HVACR talent pools that can help your organisation keep up with any regulation changes, talent shortages, and any challenge that the industry may throw at you. Contact us today and we’ll connect you with one of our specialist HVACR consultants. We’ll take time to understand your challenges and goals, and help you target the best talent possible. Call us today on 0330 333 5074

​How to take control of your careerIf you’ve ever asked a child what they want to be when they grow up, you’ve probably heard all sorts of weird, wonderful, and sometimes entirely practical answers - doctor, firefighter, astronaut, cowboy, Ruler of the Universe.Chances are these dreams will change as they get older, and most of us go through life not being entirely sure about what we’re actually going to do post-school, college or university. Oftentimes the roles we choose aren’t actually what we spent years studying. This isn’t a bad thing! You’ve got a bunch of transferable skills, a hunger to learn, and a willingness to put in the work to be the best at what you do. But what happens when your current role isn’t fulfilling you like it used to?This is when it’s time to become the ‘Ruler of Your Own Universe’, take control of your career, and consider your options when it comes to your career path and progression. Some key things to think about are:•Are you at a company that will accommodate your desire for more responsibility? •Is there an opportunity within your company that you’d prefer over your current role?•Is your manager going to support your ambition, or stifle it? The answer to these questions will determine your next steps. If there is an opportunity internally that you want, or management is open to considering changes and adjustments to your current role that will bring it in line with your aspirations, then great! Without further ado, here’s some excellent ways to take control of your career.Taking control of your career – External projectsArrange a few chats internally with stakeholders that could arrange projects, activities or responsibilities outside of your current remit. This is an opportunity to demonstrate your skills and knowledge, and to shine outside of your usual day-to-day. Look into additional training opportunities Identify opportunities to expand your skills and knowledge through training – is there a scheme in place that you feel you would benefit from, or an external course that would be beneficial? Build and present your case to your management team – justify the time and spend, and communicate how and why this would be a good opportunity for both parties. If your employer is not prepared to invest in this sort of training, then you wouldn’t be alone in feeling dissatisfied. Access to training and development is hugely important to today’s workforce, with LinkedIn’s 2018 Workforce Learning Report showing that a whopping 93% of employees would stay at a company longer if it invested in their careers.Find a mentorIn order to fully take control of your career, it’s crucial that you find a mentor. Ask any successful person whether they had someone who inspired, motivated, and helped them to achieve what they’ve managed to, and it’s likely the answer will be yes. In fact, in one university survey of 3000 people, 76% of people stated that they believed mentors were important to success.Consider your colleagues - is there someone internally you admire, or that you would like to learn more from? If so, reach out - even if you just grab a coffee once a month, this person could help you get where you want to be, and offer useful advice when you’re feeling despondent or just an ear when you need it. Consider your transferable skills It can sometimes feel as if your ambition outweighs your ability, especially in circumstances where what you want to do seems like a far cry from your current role. This is when it’s time to consider your work history and experience, and draw out the transferable skills that you bring to the table. For example, you may want to move into a more senior post where you’d need to manage people, but have no experience. Think outside of work – sports teams, events you’ve been part of or planned, friendship groups – and plan examples of situations where you’ve shown leadership, listening, and motivational skills. Consider your optionUltimately, you may find that once you’ve exhausted your options, you still feel like opportunities for you to build upon your role are limited. In this case, to truly to take control of your career, it’s time to look elsewhere. At WR, we’ll help you find a role where you can pursue your ambitions, innovate, and grow.Looking for your next role? Contact us today and we’ll connect you with one of our specialist consultants from our four divisions (Health, Engineering, HVACR, and Logistics).

Brexit uncertainty sparks staggering rise in demand for customs experts​WR Logistics, one of the country’s foremost transport & logistics recruiters, has warned businesses and authorities to ensure skills shortages are addressed as uncertainty around a no deal Brexit continues. The warning comes as the business has recorded a staggering 183 per cent rise in demand for customs professionals.The upsurge, noted when comparing company data from August – October 2019 with the first quarter of the year, was especially visible amongst those with experience of the customs clearance process, documentation knowledge, and tariffs & rate negotiation skills.With a potential no deal Brexit meaning that workforces may face unprecedented challenges, the TUC has stated that there will be a need for ‘up to 5,000 extra people’ to cope with Brexit-related strain. However, this has not been reflected in government plans, with Treasury Secretary, Rishi Sunak, suggesting only 900 more staff would be put in place.“While many sectors are being affected by the possibility of a no deal Brexit, demand is already rising sharply for customs experts,” said Lewis Richards, managing director of WR Logistics. “If our company data is anything to go by, as we inch closer towards Brexit, this is only likely to increase.“Employers we work with are desperate for professionals with awareness of customs tariffs and systems, with many looking to alleviate potential Brexit risk, and others using the climate of uncertainty to grow their businesses,” he added. “Ultimately, these workers play a crucial role in supporting the country’s infrastructure, so it’s essential that skills shortages are quickly recognised and addressed. By acting now, businesses can continue to shape the future of the country’s network and infrastructure, regardless of what happens after we leave the EU.”​

How to network effectively​Effective networking is a must for those looking to boost awareness, meet new people and create new relationships and leads. In fact, according to a LinkedIn global survey, almost 80 percent of professionals consider networking to be crucial for career success. Luckily for us, there are loads of events to take advantage of. However, this level of choice may create the temptation to attend everything – and not actually get any work done.For this reason, identifying exactly why you’re networking is key to success. It’s all well and good attending different functions, but if you aren’t gaining anything from them, it can become a huge waste of resources. Once you’ve figured out your objectives, you can put together your events timetable and start to plan! Here’s how to network effectively.The Three Stages of Effective Networking1.Before the eventSet goalsGive yourself some measurable targets. This could be to swap business cards with at least ten people, or successfully deliver your pitch to three. Whatever they may be, keep them simple, but be sure to hold yourself to them.Business cardsTake plenty of business cards with you, and be prepared to take details from those who don’t use business cards. This could be done with an app on your phone, or simply carrying a notepad and pen. Whatever method works for you - just don’t get caught short and potentially miss out on a valuable opportunity to connect. Social media Check out what’s happening socially around the event and get involved. It’s a chance to chat with the organisers, which could be handy down the line, and also a good opportunity to identify who is attending.How to network effectively - during the event 2.During the eventIntroduce yourselfIt can be nerve-wracking entering a room of people and jumping in with introductions, but there are a number of ways to do this more effectively. Staying active on social media could give you a head start - as you may be able to continue conversations started online, or be approached by those who recognise you from LinkedIn. A good start is to make a beeline for the speakers - you will have engaged with them beforehand, so try and get some time with them. Your pitchWhen it comes to learning how to network effectively – it’s essential you have a rough idea of what you want to get across while you’re there, so when it comes to talking about your business, you’re ready to communicate value. This will also help calm any potential nerves about having to talk to people – as you won’t be struggling to think about what to say.Work the roomWhile you are at the event to meet people, it can be easy to get caught in conversation with one person. However, no matter how engaging that individual is - you’re in a room full of other people looking to connect. Therefore – to network effectively, make the most of the event and meet as many people as possible. Introduce peopleIf you’ve met people in the room that you think would benefit from getting to know each other, a really effective networking strategy is to introduce them. This will help with your reputation – and perhaps lead to more business down the line.3.Post eventFollow upMake sure to reach out to any contacts you engaged with at the event - connect on LinkedIn and send a quick personal ‘nice to meet you’ message. It’s a good way to re-establish and reinforce your meeting and move forward with anything discussed at the event. No matter how well you think a conversation may have went, without this – all your hard work will have been for nothing.Practice makes perfectKeep your eyes open for upcoming opportunities – networking takes practice, and as long as you keep at it, you’ll become a natural.​Talk to the expertsUltimately, learning how to network effectively can do wonders for your career – especially when looking for a new job role. However, if you truly want to broaden your horizons, its best to talk to the experts – in the same way that you may use your network to create new business, we utilise our close relationships with employers across the country in order to find candidates their dream job.Contact us today and we’ll connect you with a specialist consultant from one of our four divisions (Health, Engineering, HVACR, and Logistics). We’ll take time to understand your goals, ambitions, and help land you your dream job.Call us today on 0330 333 5074!​
