Logistics firm fills 180 spaces in just four weeks 

A Nottinghamshire logistics business has filled 180 spaces in just four weeks to get ready for a busy Christmas period. DMW Logistics, in Sutton-in-Ashfield, specialises in contract packaging for clients across the UK and Europe as well as warehousing and distribution. It brought in Thorn Baker Industrial Recruitment, which is based in Leicestershire, to find the staff to meet its requirements for the remainder of 2022.

All the jobs are based at DMW's site, near junction 28 of the M1, and will help the company prepare for its busy Christmas period. The business provides contract packing and delivery for major high street retailers across the UK and Europe, and needed the temporary contract packing workers for the peak season. Additional roles such as logistics, warehouse and fork-lift truck drivers have been filled, and others remain available.

Thorn Baker managed the entire recruitment process, following the successful renewal of a contract which was first awarded in 2021. It has an established on-site recruitment team at DMW's premises so that it can best serve the candidates working on site. Thorn Baker director Matthew Dann said: "We were delighted to be selected as the preferred recruiter again and I look forward to building a long-term relationship with DMW.

"In a difficult recruitment market, I am pleased that the team has found suitable staff for DMW so quickly and that we will be on hand to support the company over its busy period in the run up to Christmas." DMW production manager Stefan Wilcockson said: "We chose Thorn Baker as our preferred supplier again as even though last year proved very difficult for temporary staffing, we received high service levels throughout the year, and this year has been the same." Thorn Baker on-site head Richard Borland said: "There are still some roles available at DMW so I would encourage anyone looking for employment to get in touch and speak with us about the variety of roles available.

"We have developed a good team here and our onsite department is here to make people's journey into their new role successful, so you will be supported throughout the process."

Thorn Baker Industrial is one of three dedicated brands of the Thorn Baker Group, which also includes Thorn Baker Construction and Thorn Baker Estates, Facilities and Maintenance.

The group manages the recruitment needs of companies across the UK, placing over 30,000 candidates in jobs annually.
