Profile written by Lucy
Sam made Pod HQ her urban home in November 2013, just in time for all the Christmas celebrations to start. Joining with three years’ experience, a wealth of supply chain knowledge in the FMCG space and a natural fit to Pod values, we were delighted when she came on-board and joined the Pod Squad.
At her previous company, she placed top talent to the likes of Red Bull, Black & Decker, Dairy Crest, Ciate and more. Within Pod's supply chain team, Sam recruits from entry to team-leader level across FMCG non-food sectors including the pharmaceutical industry. She has an outstanding candidate pool of talent with a focus on supply and demand planners, customer supply managers and supply chain analysts.
Sam has made a big impact at Pod already, not just on the “placement board” but also on our social scene. She is a regular at our fortnightly “supper club” and brings excellent banter too. Sam recently announced that she had never had a real nickname at work so we got to work and have already given her the recruitment Jedi name "Sam Solo" and some other suggestions have included Sam-I-Am (now her database login) and Samweila… If you have any suggestions, feel free to share with us!
