Today on the blog, we are sharing a segment of a Q&A with one of our new sponsors at this years Northamptonshire Logistics Awards – Kingsley Consulting Ltd…
Name and job title: Marisa Baker – Senior Business Partner
Company: Kingsley Consulting Ltd
Category sponsored: Growth Company of the Year
Your business: How many people do you employ in Northamptonshire and, in a few words, can you tell us what your company does?
We have a team of eight internally. As a recruitment company, we employ and find suitable jobs for hundreds of local people and place them into local businesses.
Kingsley Consulting was set up in 2016 with the view of doing things different and putting people at the heart of everything we do. This is demonstrated through some of the projects we are involved in such as, supporting the homeless back into work and aiding ex-offenders to gain the skills and knowledge to get work-ready. Furthermore, Kingsley Consulting has signed the Armed Forces covenant, holding the Bronze award, which recognises that we support reservists, service leavers and ex- military personnel, by helping them to gain employment. We are also a disability confident employer too and carry out work in the Diversity and Inclusion space.
Why have you chosen this particular category to sponsor and what aligns your business to the Northamptonshire Logistics Awards?
Kingsley Consulting have growth plans for the future and we would like to show our support to those up and coming local businesses within a sector.
What major challenges do you think the logistics sector/ your sector faces?
There is a shortage in skills and this is due to lack of knowledge about the logistics sector. It is not every child’s dream to enter the logistics industry from school – this must change.
