When Meachers Global Logistics, one of the UK’s leading independent providers of international freight and transport logistics services, needed a new Depot Manager for the Derby facility, their Commercial Director, Gary Whittle, turned to Vidu Recruitment.
Using the exclusive Vidu VIP recruitment service, Gary was able to liaise directly with a specialist Logistics recruiter and awaited a bespoke shortlist of relevant candidates along with access to their digital profiles. Within weeks of using the Vidu platform, Meachers had a selection of top candidates, and were able to successfully add a new member to their team.
Vidu’s platform enables employers, recruiters and candidates to post videos and social posts alongside their online profile, creating a 360° impression of their capabilities. This can streamline the selection process immensely alongside time saved in unnecessary interviews. The beauty of being able to see a company or candidate video is clear; you can pause, rewind and reflect on the suitability and ‘fit’ for your specific recruitment needs.
Alun Smith, the successful candidate, found the opportunity equally as rewarding. He summed up; “I could see more of the company, the staff and get a feel for the team I’d be working with and see a lot more about the business before I’d even walked through the door.”
Gary Whittle added that as far as Meachers Global Logistics’ future recruitment needs go, Vidu is; “Something we will use for the foreseeable future.”
