Targeting Talent in Food Manufacturing. Call us on 0115 923 4651

Clients

We have worked with a wide range of clients from small companies to major blue chip organisations successfully placing both interim and permanent candidates.

We believe that a key driver of successful recruitment is a real appreciation of what our clients are truly looking for.   With a detailed knowledge of food manufacturing and specialism within particular disciplines our clients find we speak their language.

Whilst we are guided by our clients and how they wish to approach their recruitment we welcome the opportunity to come out and meet with you to see for ourselves what you do and how you’re doing it. Developing genuine understanding of your unique work environment and being able to look beyond a job description into the heart of a business, its culture, its expectations and its aspirations is far more likely to result in a good pairing of candidate and client.

 Core Strengths

Quality

We understand it’s not about having a multitude of names on the database; it’s about maintaining a select database of credible interims, not just “inbetweeners”, and being able to match the right interim to the right business in the right circumstances.

Partnership

AIM’s role doesn’t end when the placement is made, we continue to monitor and review progress to ensure that the partnership is delivering against both the client and interim expectation.

Speed

We understand that time is money and that’s why our response times are second to none thanks to our working knowledge of our interims.

Knowledge

Because we know the food industry inside out, we understand the issues and are able to deliver our clients short-term solutions that provide genuine long-term benefits.

Experience

We’ve been providing interim managers to your industry for over a decade. Most of the interims we recommend we’ve placed in successful assignments many times; we know what they do best, how they work, what clients think of their abilities and how they’ll fit into an organisation.

Value

We pride ourselves on offering a cost effective service that adds real value to our clients’ bottom line.

Boutique Service

Our clients can be confident when a vacancy is accepted it will be given the time and commitment it deserves. In order to deliver this service we cannot and do not take on every role we are approached to fill.

Professionalism

Through the robust process we undertake with candidates we effectively become an extension to your HR function adding real value to your recruitment process.

Quality

With KPIs focused on quality not quantity clients can be confident that careful consideration is given to the relevance of each candidate submitted. If we are unable to meet your brief we’ll let you know.

Partnership building

We build long-term and trusting relationships with clients and provide a support network for our candidates.

Industry Experience

Our winning combination of extensive hands-on food industry experience and traditional recruitment means we can identify the best individuals in an increasingly challenging market.

Sound Advice

All our consultants are dedicated to their particular disciplines meaning you deal with a specialist in the field rather than a “Jack of all Trades”.
