We are very pleased to announce the appointment of the latest addition to the team! Richard Williams joins our Purchasing and Supply Chain team as a new Senior Consultant at our Manchester head office.

Richard will specialise in recruiting for purchasing and supply chain roles within the FMCG, pharmaceuticals and chemicals sectors across the South East.

Richard joins us from an industry background with experience from over 10 years of customer facing FMCG and supply chain experience. Some of his previous roles include Customer Logistics Manager at Kraft Heinz, Senior Analyst at The Co-operative and Forecasting & CPFR Manager at Dunbia. Richard also has a BSc (Hons) Degree in Manufacturing Management, all of which gives Richard an excellent understanding of the market place and the roles that he will be recruiting for.

Richard has a long standing relationship with Cast UK as he was placed in his role as CPFR Analyst at Dunbia by ourselves 6 years ago. After being impressed with the service he received from us, Richard then went on to use our services as a client, using Cast UK on numerous occasions to recruit for CPFR Analysts and even sourcing Richard’s own replacement when he left Dunbia.

Commenting on his new job, Richard said “I have worked with Cast UK as both a candidate and a client over a number of years. The service and expertise of the consultants is always way ahead of any of the competitors; the consultants always really understood the roles and never sent me irrelevant CV’s. I am excited to now be part of the team and look forward to providing the same first class service as I always received”.

On Richard joining the team, manager of the Purchasing and Supply Chain Peter Hobson, commented, “I have known Richard for a number of years having placed him in a previous position and recruited several people for his teams over the years. Richard has a wealth of experience in customer facing supply chain management positions working for leading FMCG businesses. He therefore joins our business with a deep understanding of the roles we recruit which will in turn help to match our candidate and client needs, I am delighted to have him board.”
