Industrial Personnel are excited to announce our newest Divisional Manager- Paul Cooper!
Paul joins Industrial Personnel to head up the IP Logistics division of the business, and we are excited to be going back to where it all started for IP. 25 years ago, when we took our first steps as a new business, we were specialists in the logistics sector.
Paul has worked in recruitment for 15 years; he specialises in the logistics sector. He recruits all classes of drivers, warehouse staff, planners and administration staff. With his years of experience in recruitment, he has gained the ability and skills to recruit for many clients, “no matter what the roles, volumes or timescales”.
We are so delighted to welcome Paul to the IP family, and wanted to share some of our favourite facts about him with you..
What is your favourite thing about working in recruitment?
Everyday is different. The role is so varied that you should never get bored
What is your go-to karaoke song?
Daydream Believer- The Monkees
What did you want to be when you were younger?
An Airline Pilot
What is your proudest achievement?
Pitching and winning a major DHL account (MFI) in 2007. The contract started with three class 1 drivers and peaked 6 months later, on 85 (in 1 day). It was incredibly hard work and needed two onsite driving consultants to cover the volume but amazingly rewarding.
What is a ‘fun fact’ about you?
I am in the process of qualifying as a hypnotherapist. I qualified many years ago but didn’t do anything with it. So, I have some techniques I can do with you. Don’t worry, I will not have you dancing around like a chicken!
If you are interested in hearing about the driving positions we have available, or require further information, please telephone Paul at Industrial Personnel on 01709 827756. (N.B. Paul is unfortunately not currently taking bookings for hypnotherapy sessions!)
