Profile written by Lucy
Rob joined Pod’s logistics team as a Principal Consultant, to strengthen our market coverage across the UK, specifically focusing on manager – senior manager level vacancies within the food and consumer goods market.
Since then he was worked his way up to a team leader for our UK logistics team, before expanding his remit to lead both logistics and manfuacturing. Rob specialises in delivering senior level searches within the UK manufacturing space.
Rob joins us with a fantastic background in logistics recruitment, having spent 4 years at specialist consultancy Robert Walters, leading their logistics practice in Sydney, Australia. When it was time for Rob to move back to the UK, he started talking to Pod and didn’t look back!
As well as managing the logistics team in Sydney, Rob was busy recruiting with global logistics and retail businesses such as DB Schenker, Schneider, Woolworths and Toll Global. At Pod, Rob is working with a number of impressive clients including RB, Perrigo and Gist.
Rob made a big impact on his first day in the office, having been clean shaven in all of his Skype interviews with us he turned up with a very “Shoreditch” beard! So he managed to fit right in both to the office and general surrounding area! In true style of Pod’s logistics team, he was quickly given the nickname “Mumford” to match his beard, to add to his ever growing list of nicknames including Twiggy, Twigster, Robbo and Twiglet.
We love having Rob on board, and look forward to his continuing success here at Pod!
