LOFT: Talent Aquisition

With the on-going pressure for the food industry to keep up with the demands of the rising global population, food companies worldwide are continuing their searches for new talent to help maintain and develop their businesses. One company assisting these businesses with the staff they need is UK based recruitment consultancy LOFT Talent Acquisition. They are a chosen partner for some of the biggest food manufacturing companies in the EMEA.

Founded in August 2013 and operating globally, the flourishing consultancy offers a bespoke recruitment service tailored to a company’s specific needs. LOFT prides itself on standards; they have procedures in place for all candidates, which include full reference checks, thorough screening interviews and bespoke written cover sheets to add to CVs. One other key point that differentiates LOFT TA is that they understand exactly what a company is searching for. This knowledge gives an excellent candidate experience due to the understanding of the business; they accompany this by priding themselves on many forgotten values such as discretion, long-term relationship building and ethical placements. LOFT are constantly searching for untapped talent, often gaining interest from individuals that aren’t actively seeking new positions; giving their clients an insight into a ‘hidden’ candidate pool that they would have not had access to otherwise. Wanting to reach out to existing and potential clients, they regularly attend popular exhibitions which assist in establishing a greater understanding of a company’s culture and how it operates. Many of these exhibitions prove vital in developing long term relationships, of which often result in long term partnerships.
