We believe our positive culture, proactive and ethical approach to recruitment within our sector provides a unique ability to service the market. Clients and candidates will experience:

The Best Candidates

  • Access to candidates that will not apply directly to an employer, ‘passive’ candidates. Impex place over 40% of our roles with such candidates. This can be for confidentiality reasons and also for a variety of other reasons that we can assist with that result in obtaining their approval to represent them for your vacancy. This is particularly important when the candidate works for a competitor and therefore they don’t want to show their hand immediately.
  • We network with the industry at all levels and that results in candidates being referred to us. Our history of doing this successfully for 20 years means you can rest assured you are partnering with a professional organization with reach well beyond a single vacancy or individual candidate.
  • We become an advocate for our customers which can result in candidates that wouldn’t normally apply, providing their approval once we have told them about the environment, staff, management, systems, opportunities, specialties etc.
  • We proactively share vacancies within our 11 offices, plus our adiConsult partners in 16 Countries to find the very best fit candidate.

Opportunity Cost of your Time

Your time is valuable. In an increasingly competitive world your focus on core business activity is not only vital but critical to your survival.

By using Impex for your key recruitment needs, we will take away the ‘noise’ and pain points of recruitment dramatically reducing you and your staff’s personal time on recruitment. By using us, you will receive a shortlist of qualified, assessed and work ready candidates to choose from, rather than sifting through and managing the many unsuitable applications from generic advertising. We will also manage professionally those candidates who are unsuccessful and make sure your Company’s reputation is preserved.

Our consulting fees are normally outweighed by the productivity gained by focusing on your core business.

True Specialist

100% of our focus is on recruiting specialist staff for the core markets of transport, logistics and supply chain. This allows us to reach people well beyond those who might be actively looking for an employment opportunity. It also means we are likely to know staff that are suitable for your vacancy even if they aren’t actively looking.

The vast majority of our Consulting team have worked in the sector so they can ‘talk the talk’ and understand the role in which they are recruiting. As a result, you will not waste time meeting poor fitting candidates or for candidates going for interview for jobs that don’t fit.

Our primary focus is:

  • Freight forwarding
  • Logistics
  • 3PL
  • Transport
  • Warehousing and distribution
  • FMCG
  • Exporters and importers
  • Supply chain
  • Manufacturing
  • Executive / Management
  • Call centre staff
  • Office support


  • We drug test candidates, complete ministry of justice checks and reference checks which ensures that by the time they are onsite at your organization you know they are fit for work.
  • We conduct a face to face interview with every candidate conducting a thorough and detailed candidate screen. This is backed up by detailed reference checking to verify what the candidate has shared with us in indeed correct.
  • We provide a genuine guarantee for permanent placements.
  • We partner with our customers for the long term instead of for a single transaction. This allows us to be proactive and identify talent that meets your growth projections and business plan.
  • Health and Safety – our business process is focused on delivering safe work environments for staff and clients. This is a significant saving over time.
