Mid-to-senior Operations

Managing through disruption

Against a backdrop of geopolitical and economic uncertainty, disruption to global supply chains, and rising costs, the spotlight is on the agile, resilient, risk-astute quality, logistics, supply chain, and procurement professionals that can steer you through.

Digital and data foresight

The masters of digital and data will become increasingly sought after, enabling oversight of what are necessarily becoming more complex operating environments. Real-time connection, AI and predictive machine-learning analytics will help offer some resilience. The efficiencies offered by automation and the Internet of Things (IoT) means organisations will need proven people to ensure these expensive tools are fully leveraged.

Values versus Value

How much extra will your customers pay for something that is sustainably and ethically produced? Today’s manufacturing and engineering leaders must hold cost and social and environmental responsibilities in perpetual tension, factoring in all three to the total cost of supply. The organisations attracting the best talent, and thriving not just surviving, are purpose-driven and making a genuine difference.


A flexible approach to talent

Successful organisations are the ones who adapt the quickest. In times of transition, you need a range of appropriate talent options. Whether it is expertise to fill a knowledge gap, a technology team to usher in change or interim management to maintain business as usual while you recruit for a permanent role, we ensure you always have the people you need when you need them.
