SCM Talent Group has filled well over a thousand professional-level supply shain positions within North America and this is the primary market we serve. We have also worked on search assignments in other parts of the world and have plans to continue expanding our reach to eventually serve all geographic locations across the globe. Our large, global network of supply shain talent and cutting edge recruitment technology enables us to handle just about any search challenge regardless of location.
SCM Talent Group is always focused on developing and recommending the most cost effective supply chain recruiting and hiring solutions for your specific needs. We know that in most cases, you need to fill open roles and get someone working on your most critical initiatives as soon as possible. Time is money and we know that leaving a critical position unfilled for an abnormal length of time can be detrimental to your supply chain. Since we already have a large global network of supply chain professionals, we are able to reach out to top candidates more quickly, saving time in qualifying and presenting them to you and your HR team. We can move them through the selection and hiring process by deploying a wide spectrum of resources and tools to fill the job more quickly.
Top passive supply chain candidates are already working at their current company and often are very careful to protect their confidentiality and identity, which is why they often do not apply to online job postings. We are able to provide them with the utmost level of confidentiality and privacy when approaching them to present and discuss your opportunity, which makes them much more willing to listen and consider.
By working with SCM Talent Group exclusively, you will also avoid the concern of top candidates being approached about your opportunity by more than one firm, which can cause potential confusion and embarrassment for all parties. Additionally, the higher the level of the position or the more complex skill set and experience required, the use of an exclusive firm highly experienced in recruiting supply chain talent becomes increasingly important.
We know how to pre-qualify candidates to determine their level of experience and skills, and know how to ask the tough, detailed questions that determine if they are the right fit for your specific roles, team and company culture. We also know how to appropriately present your opportunity to help entice high-demand supply chain candidates to interview. You benefit because we will advise and make recommendations to you throughout the critical selection and interview process in order to help you avoid a potentially bad and costly hiring mistake.
Additionally, we have the knowledge and experience in recommending competitive compensation packages and negotiating offers to top candidates. This helps to ensure a win-win scenario for both parties and selected candidates to accept your offer and join your team!
We have built our business on a strong reputation, solid relationships and trust. SCM Talent Group has many years of in-depth supply chain recruiting experience, best-in-class recruitment resources and a strong global network of top supply chain professionals. This helps us to quickly identify and make contact with top talent, many of whom are already engaged and not looking (passive), especially those who may be working for your direct competitors.
Your HR team likely already wears many hats. Since candidates can easily submit resumes electronically, an HR team typically receives hundreds of unqualified resumes for each requisition. Due to the sheer volume of applicants and number of requisitions they must handle in addition to their other duties, your HR team often does not have the time or resources to identify and source the top available passive candidates, especially for highly specialized and critical roles. Additionally, it’s rare for top supply chain candidates to post online for open positions, meaning they must be identified and sourced from their current employers. This is where SCM Talent Group comes in! Our expertise is in working in close partnership with you and your HR team in identifying, pre-qualifying and engaging top supply chain talent to present to you for your open roles.
