Overview

What is Warehousing recruitment ?

The warehousing industry is one of the biggest industries who are constantly hiring for workers.

A warehouse holds the inventory of a business, and the warehouse workers play an important role in keeping and managing the supply.

Warehousing recruitment is the process of finding and hiring talent. There are 3 main types of warehouse recruitment:

Permanent Direct Hire working directly for the business and is given set hours and annual salary

Casual Direct Hire working for one company on a casual basis.

Agency Work working through a partner that worked with multiple warehouses and places, both temp and perm workers.

This is what we do best... Continue reading to learn more

Employer benefits of using a Warehousing Recruitment Agency

Reduced management cost
Using a recruitment agency helps you save valuable time and effort and can reduce management costs by outsourcing time-intensive tasks such as sending out shift reminders, dealing with cancellations, and processing payroll for a large workforce.
Cost Effective
Directly hiring staff can be costly between advertising costs, time management, and hiring casual or full time employees. That cost is fixed regardless if the candidate is employed for 1 year or 1 day.
Flexible workforce
In the warehousing and logistics industry, containers can be delayed, orders can come in last minute and overall workload can fluctuate dramatically hour to hour. Using a recruitment agency can help you fill in urgent roles you need.
Retention & Sustainability
Retaining warehouse staff can be challenging especially if the workload is too heavy or shifts are inconsistent week to week. Using a recruitment agency can ensure that you always have access to staff when you need them even if it’s only for a few weeks at a time.
Cash flow
There are considerable cash flow benefits in using a recruitment agency. At Chandler Personnel, we also offer flexible terms to suit you business needs.
Liability & employment standards
Using a recruitment agency can reduce your OHS liability and ensure that all government mandated employment standards are being followed. We will be compliant in making sure that employees are being paid the correct amount on time.
Warehousing Industry Experts
It’s no use sending a forklift driver with an LF licence to do the work of an order picker. As a warehousing recruiter, you need to know the difference between types of forklifts and licence recruitments. You should also be able to identify staff with the relevant experience for your individual warehouse. RF scanning experience is a must in some warehouses, but for some, experience with manual order sheets is paramount. For this reason, using a specialist warehousing recruiter can save you a lot of time and frustration.
Effective and simple cost reporting
Whether you need staff cost reporting per shift hour, role type or warehouse section, we can provide this seamlessly and easily.

Hiring Options

Permanent Placment

A Permanent Placement is where the recruitment agency handles the recruitment process on your behalf and advertises for the position, interviews candidates, and shortlists suitable candidates.

Once suitable candidates have been identified, they will be passed on to the employer for approval or additional interviews and consideration. Once the employer is happy with a candidate, they are then employed directly on the employer’s books.

All Chandler Personnel perm placements follow a no placement, no fee arrangement and we offer a 3 month guarantee on all placements.

Labour Hire / On Demand

If you need an on-demand workforce, labour hire is the option for you.

Labour hire is when a business engages with a recruitment agency to provide a casual workforce.

The agency takes care of all employer responsibilities and liability.

The host employer “The Business” provides the work. This model is most often charged on a per hour basis.

Chandler Personnel charges a small fee per labour hour & you can order staff 24/7

Temp To Perm

Temp-to-perm is when the business decides to take on a worker under the labour hire model for a set number of hours or time before taking the candidate permanently and moving them to their books.

As an employer, this is an excellent way for you to scout talent to source positions with the skills you’re looking for.

There are several pricing options if you choose the temp-to-perm arrangement.
