For over 5 years, Baxter Personnel have been working closely and recruiting for Inspired Pet Nutrition (also formerly known as Wagg Foods) at their production facility at Dalton Airfield, near Thirsk, North Yorkshire. As both companies continue to grow and expand, the need for dedicated and effective recruitment was essential for IPN to progress after the pet food manufacturer’s 7 million pound investment in production facilities.


Since working together, the businesses have developed a strong functioning relationship and understanding, and are now working together on a sole supplier agreement, meaning Baxter Personnel are recruiting for the IPN on a bespoke managed service project to deliver both effective and efficient recruitment of the highest quality.


The business model and strategy used by Baxter Personnel has helped the company to achieve a high retention rate of staff across many of its clients, not only IPN, demonstrating their 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.


Inspired Pet Nutrition has a long history dating back as far as 1923, and is the UK’s largest independent producer of dry pet food. The company is continually growing through its two main brands, Wagg and Harringtons, as well as making private label products for various retailers. The pet food manufacturer have recently been identified on The Sunday Times Profit Track as 'One to Watch'.


Baxter Personnel are currently recruiting a number of roles for IPN, both temporary and permanent, including several Packing and Production Operatives, as well as a HR Officer, Continuous Improvement Engineer, Multi-skilled Engineer, Category Manager, Animal Nutritionist and an Operations Apprentice.


Finance Director, Anthony Stones, said “We have a great relationship with Baxter Personnel, and the quality of candidates we receive as we continue to grow and progress is fantastic. Working with the agency on a sole supplier agreement not only gives us reassurance that the roles will be filled to a high standard, but also that we will have the maximum level of support from Baxter Personnel.”
