Logistics Leads the Way
 

“The line between disorder and order lies in Logistics…”

Given the past 12 months have seen some of the most challenging moments of our lifetimes for Supply Chains, economies, and mobility of goods and people, the value on robust Logistics has never been more prominent.

Prices are increasing, mobility is being challenged on unprecedented levels and we are seeing a global container crisis to boot. So, how is this affecting the job market in Switzerland?

Unsurprisingly, the job flow in the Logistics area, in particular, is seeing a significant uptick. This is not to downplay the increases across other Procurement, Supply Chain and Operations areas that we are seeing, but it is the movement of products where businesses (whether that’s Consumer Goods or even Pharmaceutical) are seeing the biggest challenges.

The response has been clear – the businesses with the strongest, resilient Supply Chains and Logistics operations are not only surviving, but look set to flourish as we enter the next phase of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Of course, in turn, this drives the need for top senior talent and niche skillsets in the Logistics function. Here at EMEA Recruitment, we are seeing first-hand how this is something that businesses across Switzerland are looking to address.

Positions driven towards global strategic Logistics responsibilities are significantly up year-on-year and, with the impacts of Brexit still filtering through, alongside the ongoing challenges around the pandemic, this is a trend that we are fully expecting to continue.

During these ever-challenging times, we work with our clients to understand their changing business requirements. To discuss your specific Logistics needs across Switzerland, please contact our Senior Consultant, Neil Cope on: neil.cope@emearecruitment.eu
