Why Choose SDW for Supply Chain and Logistics Jobs?

Our entire operation is built on a desire to match people to jobs that they’re right for and that they’ll enjoy. None of our team are from a recruitment agency background; this means that we’re able to come into the work from a fresh perspective, without any of the toxicity that can mar otherwise decent agencies.
Utimately, SDW differs from other recruitment companies because of our genuine passion for the shipping and logistics industry. We are truly interested in making a difference in people’s lives and helping companies find the right people to suit their roles.
