Let’s be honest, the recruitment industry is not always held in high esteem. But that is not the whole picture. There are brave people out there pushing the boundaries and doing things better…

Pod Talent was set up in 2012 to disrupt and step change the recruitment industry marketplace, defining a new ethos of partnership with our customers (clients and candidates), based on 4 key values: Openness, Individuality, Creativity and Excellence.

In April 2018 Pod embarked on Chapter 2 of the business ambition. We want to be brave and build an even better recruitment business, with a target of growing to 5 times our current size in the next 10 years.

To achieve these goals, we are looking for a Principal Consultant – Manufacturing & Logistics. This newly created role exists to build on the growth of the Operations, Logistics and Manufacturing division.
