A new international executive search and recruitment business, PKG Partners, has launched to specifically support the international packaging industry. Headquartered in the UK and led by Chris Parnham (pictured left), a recruitment expert with over 15 years of experience of placing talent in the sector, the company has been established to aid companies struggling with the current employment market challenges.
“The packaging sector is under considerable pressure currently from a recruitment perspective,” explains Parnham. “Its aging workforce and lack of skilled employees coming into the industry are creating issues in terms of business performance and being able to succession plan for the future. At PKG, we have deep experience of working with organisations across the packaging value chain, both here in the UK and the EU, and have a large network of contacts that enable us to work quickly and efficiently with companies seeking talent.”
He concludes, “We specialise in building high performance leadership teams offering a true HR recruitment partnership model, as well as assignment-based work to help those companies just wanting one-off hires. It’s an exciting time to be entering the sector as a new business; the industry is beset with talent attraction and retention issues due to the sheer demand for skilled employees and PKG has the insight, relationships and service to really deliver for our clients.”
