Inspired-Search: headhunters in supply chain management

People make the difference in the supply chain.

With years of experience in supply chain management, Inspired-Search is a valuable and substantive sparring partner in recruiting and selecting the right professionals for senior leadership positions.

Since 2005, we have been working with multi-nationals, SMEs, family businesses, scale-ups and start-ups in a wide variety of industries to find the right people who make the difference. Logistics service providers also find their way to Inspired-Search

Together with the stakeholder in a recruitment and selection process, Inspired-Search ensures the right fit from a functional, personal, cultural and an inclusiveness perspective.

Inspired-Search has a large and active network that knows no boundaries. For many years, we have been speaking to top executives to hear how they look at developments in the supply chain. What is crucial to them for ultimate supply chain leadership and what their personal drivers are. We like to share this knowledge with our network and use it to go ‘beyond the match in supply chain’.

Our background and knowledge of the industry

Inspired-Search’s senior partners come with deep industry knowledge and experience. From planning, procurement, sourcing, manufacturing to logistics. They themselves have spent years at the helm of major international operations. Combined with an interest in the person behind the candidate, they are able to make an excellent match like no other.

Benefits of working with an executive search firm:

  • Access: The market is tight in terms of supply of good people and ample in terms of vacant positions. People are over demanded but through our lines we often have direct access to candidates.
  • Expertise: Inspired-Search has the knowledge and experience needed to find the right candidate for your specific job requirements. We have an extensive network (largest in Europe) and can conduct quick and targeted searches for the right candidate.
  • Access to “hidden” candidates: Many qualified candidates for executive positions are not actively looking for new challenges, but are interested in suitable opportunities. Inspired-Search has the ability to identify and target these “hidden” candidates.
  • Objectivity: Inspired-Search is independent and objective. We work with you to find the right candidate without being influenced by internal political or personal relationships.
  • Objectivity: Assessments help reduce subjectivity and bias in the recruitment process because they work on the basis of facts and objective data rather than subjective opinions.
  • Speed: Inspired-Search is focused on speed and efficiency and can often deliver qualified candidates within a short period of time.
  • Benchmarking: Due to the many assignments we have done in the past, we have a good idea of what the best organisational fit for a position might be. We help think about the role, filling and position within the organisation.
