Ground breaking year for Baxter Personnel… and it gets better yet!

Ground breaking year for Baxter Personnel… and it gets better yet!

Baxter Personnel have smashed it once again, in a ground breaking year for the company as they successfully secure yet another large-scale recruitment project with the ever expanding retail giant, Aldi. The recruitment agency will be responsible for supplying staff to the supermarket’s new Regional Distribution Centre based in Cardiff.  The development will be a huge boost for the South Wales economy, as hundreds of jobs are set to be created.

The recruitment process will begin early 2016, when Baxter Personnel will be looking to recruit the first group of candidates for Aldi, starting with the commercial recruitment, allowing Aldi to train staff for up to 12 months prior to the new distribution centre opening. As well as the commercial recruitment, they will also be recruiting for hundreds of warehouse and logistics positions in preparation for the Regional Distribution Centre officially opening its doors in 2017.

Andrew Harrow, Managing Director of Baxter Personnel said “We are ecstatic that we have been given another opportunity to work alongside Aldi on a second large-scale recruitment project. The work we did with Aldi at its distribution centre in Goldthorpe was an enormous success, for both ourselves and Aldi. It’s great to see a company thriving so much in the current climate, and opening many new stores and distribution centres as a result. We are really excited to be a part of it, and branch out into Cardiff.”

Being awarded this opportunity is the perfect end to a very positive year for Baxter Personnel, who have made the leap from being a successful and established regional recruiter, to recruiting across the UK on a national scale. This success is down to their new business model introduced at the start of 2015, and the sheer commitment and determination driven by their consultants and management. The company has opened several new branches throughout the UK as a result of their close working relationships with a number of high profile clients.  

Baxter Personnel have already successful placed hundreds of workers at the Aldi Distribution Centre in Goldthorpe, South Yorkshire, which opened its doors in early 2015.  The business model and strategy used during this recruitment project helped the company achieve a high retention rate of staff at the Aldi Distribution Centre, demonstrating Baxter Personnel’s eye for detail, ensuring that the client’s needs are met and that they are able to quickly and effectively select the right candidates for the roles.

Baxter Personnel will roll their business out in Wales as a result of this project, opening a brand new recruitment branch in Cardiff bay, and as a result this will create several new roles in the business.
