Over 35 years, MVP has built a solid reputation for placing the UK’s best supply chain talent. Although we’ve seen the recruitment landscape change and evolve constantly, at MVP we believe in taking a simplistic approach to recruitment and the challenges faced by our clients and candidates. For us, it’s all about three main components.
Understand. Identify. Deliver.
Our consultants are market experts with a proven track record in delivering challenging recruitment solutions based around this approach. We partner with our clients and candidates, developing longstanding relationships built on trust and personal recommendations. With the supply chain sector facing major skills shortages in many specialist functions, we are well placed to deliver on even the most challenging of briefs.
Our consultants work across the supply chain sector and have an unrivalled depth of knowledge within the industry. This enables MVP to be one of the most well-respected recruiters in our field.
We provide permanent and interim recruitment solutions, with extensive experience in middle to senior management appointments. With our strong market presence, we’re well recognised for delivering on complex recruitment assignments, confidential recruitment projects and business critical positions.
Put simply, we love a challenge.
