Commodity Centre Group

 

Operations Manager

Background

The Commodity Centre Group is a dedicated commodity store and logistics specialist based in the UK and Northern Europe. The business has achieved significant levels of growth over recent years and has continued expansion plans across their divisions.

 

Rutherford Briant have worked closely with Commodity Centre over a number of years, having established a strong relationship with the Managing Director, Dean Warriner. Over the past 3 years we have successfully recruited for a number of key positions within the business across a range of disciplines including: HR Manager, Management Accountant (since promoted to Financial Controller), Operations Manager as well as number of junior positions.

 

Approach

Most recently the Operations Manager role was a key position within logistics operation for the growing Sugar division of the business. It required a dynamic individual who could adapt the existing operations, whilst ensuring that growth and business opportunities were being fully exploited. We took a dual approach to sourcing candidates for the role, targeting individuals both from relevant industry backgrounds, as well as targeting the attitude and personal skill set highlighted by the client. This led to a successful recruit with an individual from an HM Forces background, who on paper was not as strong a match as some of the other shortlisted candidates, but who through Rutherford Briant screening processes, we had identified as being the strongest fit for the needs of the role.
