ADR Network, the core business unit of PPF Ltd, is the largest temporary LGV driver recruitment business in the UK.
We are working with most of the major UK logistics companies including DHL, Wincanton and Culina as well as five of the country’s top six food retailers, including Morrison’s, Marks and Spencer and The Co-operative Group delivering a managed services solution which provides the benefits of single source supply with the advantages of multi-agency provision.
The business now has a turnover of approximately £90m pa., has appeared four times in the Top 100 of the UK’s fastest growing companies and is listed in Recruiter’s HOT 100 – the UK’s most profitable recruitment businesses.
Our business works in a totally different way to most other agencies; we do not have a sales team or task our Consultants with sales work. We have grown our business through reputation on the back of our innovation and dedication to client management and operations, not through direct sales.
Our Consultants are the face of our operational team, liaising with the client and dealing direct with the drivers. Managing hundreds of shifts a week, our Consultants operate on the basis of 100% fulfilment of contract and will regularly work with each other across our extensive UK network to move drivers around the country in order to meet our client requirements.
To help maintain our record of outstanding achievement we are now seeking to appoint a Graduate Operations Consultant in Bristol.
A Structured Development Plan
Successful candidates will spend their first 6 months receiving operational training and performing an operational resourcing role, providing branch support operationally; focusing initially on driver recruitment and registration, before developing into client liaison and management.
Our Graduate Consultants will also receive personal development support through the completion of a series of Management Development Modules, run in association with our training partner the Centre for Management and Business Development.
Within two years Graduate Consultants should expect to be managing client relationships of substantial value and working within a dynamic, fast moving operational environment with real opportunities to progress into senior roles.
