Cast UK have helped Rayburn Trading with the tricky task of sourcing a buyer for their Manchester office. The company is a major wholesaler with an enormous turnover of items ranging from cosmetics, toiletries and hair products to hardware, stationery and confectionary.

One of the reasons local traders find them indispensable is that they have excellent links with suppliers and they can get clearance lines and job lots that offer great savings to retailers. However, to keep the pressure on spending, they need buyers who are on the ball when it comes to finding the bargains and negotiating deals to keep them stay competitive. They used Cast UK to create a shortlist of candidates for this vital post, and ended up taking one of them on, with great success.

Cast UK is a Manchester-based recruitment consultancy that helps to match candidates with executive and managerial positions throughout the UK and beyond. They have a focus on logistics, supply chain and procurement, and all their own consultants come from these backgrounds too, ensuring the needs of the clients and the candidates are met.

Rayburn Trading’s Human Resources Manager said: “Cast UK demonstrated excellent customer focus by quickly establishing our needs and supplying a shortlist of quality candidates which allowed us to fill a key vacancy within a few weeks”.

This, said Wayne Brophy, Cast UK’s MD, is his consultancy in a nutshell. “Day in, day out, we’re dealing with logistics, supply chain and procurement professionals and the companies that require them. It’s not easy coming up with shortlists of high calibre personnel, often at short notice, but because we are specialists, we know what facets to look for when certain jobs arise. The Rayburn Trading appointment was as familiar as it was unique, which was why we were best place to help fill it.”
