Dan Taylor and Wanda Elliott

Derby recruiters, Ford & Stanley are celebrating a three-year contract win with tech and supply chain solutions provider Unipart Rail, part of Unipart Group, after being selected as its recruitment partner.

Ford & Stanley will be responsible for the provision of permanent and contract recruitment services spanning white-collar and executive search across all business disciplines over the next 24 – 36 months.

Wanda Elliott, human resource director of Unipart Rail said: “Our biggest asset is our people, so finding the right partner to provide us with the right people was essential to underpin our growth and to ensure we have the right capability to support our customers in improving the performance of their operations; positioning us as the Performance Improvement Partner for the rail industry. Ford & Stanley came forward with the most innovative, low maintenance, yet highly effective solutions; alongside a proven track record of successfully delivering major recruitment partnerships with similar-sized ambitious businesses.

“With their independent yet synergetic three business verticals, specialising in blue collar, white collar and executive search, they were able to provide us with a one-stop, quality solution from shop floor to boardroom.

“Ford & Stanley understand our business, represent us well in the market and can provide us with value beyond that of just finding great people. They are personable, pleasant to do business with and confident enough to consultant and challenge our business to be better, in the right way. This is why we have chosen to award them a three-year exclusive recruitment partnership agreement.”
