Based in Norfolk Bernard Matthews was setting up a new venture in Glasgow. This was a big challenge for the business that had been well established with its own local suppliers down in Norfolk. In setting up a completely new workforce in Glasgow the company were setting up a completely new infrastructure. They needed a supplier they could trust to get the right people in key positions in order to make a success of the operation.
Joe recruited at all levels for the business – Managers, Supervisors, Field Sales & Warehouse staff. This involved designing job descriptions, person specifications, advertising, interviewing applicants, reference checking and supplying only those that were of the highest calibre.
Bernard Matthews benefitted from the extensive Scottish Market knowledge that Joe and his team possessed in terms of finding and attracting the right skills, experience & knowledge in the hired staff.
This principle of locating the right people with the right behavioural fit as well as fitting skills and experience still applies today at Garraton Hoey.
