Supply Chain Recruitment Agencies Case Studies & Client Partnerships

SDW Recruitment are proud recruitment partners to many shipping & logistics companies across the South and one of our longstanding valued clients is Southampton Freight Services based in Southampton. SDW have been working with SFS now for over 13 years as their sole provider of recruitment solutions for shipping & freight professionals.

Since SDW started working with SFS, SDW has placed 15 candidates with the company in permanent roles, in which 12 are still in their employ today.

Steve Wyeth, the Founder & Director of SDW commented “Being the South’s leading recruiter to the industry, we pride ourselves on really getting to know our clients and each specific role they recruit for, so we can source candidates that are a perfect match – both in terms if experience & personality / team fit.”

“Working with Ross & the management team at SFS is always a pleasure – Ross’ clear passion & enthusiasm for the business is really contagious.”

Steve continued “We look forward to working with SFS for many more years to come – supporting their expansion plans further with fantastic freight professionals.”

Ross Negus MD of SFS commented “As Steve kindly pointed out, we have been working together in partnership for a very long time, though the relationship with Steve & his experienced team is the key component here. SDW really understands our company – the ethos and values we aspire to, and they know exactly what type of person fits into our family here at SFS. Adding that knowledge to their well respected position in the forwarding recruitment market ensures we are really focusing in the right areas when trying to attract new staff members.

“In 2012 we set out a plan for a measured and controlled growth period, expanding our client base and developing some core elements within our operation to further our local and global presence, which would enable us to take the huge leap into this new facility. I spoke with Steve many times over the period, each time explaining specifically the type of person we required for a new role, and each time Steve & his team came up trumps. We are now 30 strong, though what delights me is the diversity we have in terms of age, spanning from 20 yrs to 72 yrs old! The team that SDW has helped us put together compliments our fantastic new workspace beautifully – it’s a real pleasure to walk through our doors. It’s a testament to SDW that they have provided us with so many top class employees, hence our official partnership.”
