Woodlodge is family business and the UK’s leading supplier of garden pots, distributing products to over 2,000 garden centres and retail outlets nationwide.
Having placed Andrew Mellowes as the General Manager there in 2018, the MorePeople team remained in touch with the business and recently supported them in finding a new National Account Manager.
We regularly visit client sites to gain a better understanding of the business and culture. Just before Covid hit, Tom from the Commercial team and Lawrence from the Operations team visited the Woodlodge site in Gloucestershire for a tour of the facilities, an insight into the full product range and to meet the wider team.
This knowledge helped with finding potential candidates for the National Account Manager role as cultural fit was very important. The successful candidate was looking for a hands-on role with an entrepreneurial business and he has settled in very quickly.
Our commitment to creating long-term relationships with clients, and understanding both their business and the wider industry, ensures that we are in the best place to find the right people for the right roles.
“I have used MorePeople several times over the years both as a candidate and an employer. They set themselves apart from other recruitment agencies by not only having an encyclopedic knowledge of the industry, but also taking the time to truly understand both their client’s business and their candidates. This ensures not only a skills match but also the all-important cultural fit. I can’t recommend MorePeople more highly.”
