Welcome to Willis Global – a recruitment consultancy servicing the Shipping & Logistics industry which was recently founded by myself, Craig Willis. I’m a REC qualified recruitment professional with 15 years of experience, who recently made the bold decision to set myself a new challenge and attempt to build my own consultancy.
Straight from education, I started out within the industry supplying contract staff to the Industrial and Driving sectors. After 4 years in what was a demanding role, I set off on a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel the World. As well as visiting some spectacular places, and meeting some amazing people from all four corners of the globe, I learnt a great deal about myself and the career path I wanted to take upon my return to reality.
On my return to the UK, having enjoyed many aspects of my international experience, I was keen to secure employment within an organisation that would provide me with opportunities to deal with different parts of the World. In 2005, I was offered an import orientated role with the globally recognised express courier, Federal Express. My time with FedEx gave me a great insight in to the import / export industry, and with this experience behind me, I would later return to the recruitment industry and join a specialist recruitment consultancy servicing the Shipping & Logistics industry.
I would spend the next 7 years with this specialist recruiter servicing some of the biggest names within the World of Shipping & Logistics. With my flair for recruitment and as a result of my industry experience working for FedEx, I would consistently finish the year as one of the companies top recruiters.
In 2014 I searched for a new challenge which would later present me with an opportunity to set up a new division for a growing recruitment consultancy. I succeeded with the setup of a Shipping & Logistics division which today is consistently achieving great monthly results.
In late 2015, with 15 years of recruitment experience, and with the success of setting up a recruitment division from scratch to add to my list of career achievements, I decided the time was right to pursue a dream of mine and start my own specialist recruitment consultancy.
So here I am today, having spent my career to date honing my recruitment skills and growing my knowledge of the Shipping & Logistics industry, I believe I’m well placed to build an exceptional company and my ambition is to gain status as the go to consultancy for recruitment support within the Shipping & Logistics industry Worldwide.
Yours in Recruitment
