We have worked in partnership with Gary and the team for 7 years now, recruiting a number of our operational management team. They have always provided an outstanding calibre of candidates coupled with excellent customer service that goes above and beyond expectations. We recently required two HR professionals within the Bunzl Group, a Head of HR and a Regional HR Manager, ideally with a strong background of HR in the logistics industry. As Cast UK work specifically within the logistics specialism, we enlisted their services for this particular assignment as we knew they would be able to present HR candidates with expertise in this field. Cast UK successfully filled both of these positions for us in a fast and efficient turnaround due to their unrivalled access to professionals in this industry. Gary and the team’s prior knowledge and understanding of our company were also instrumental in the recruitment process. Paul Eavis Head of HR - Bunzl Healthcare
