Located in the parish of Sawston just south of Cambridge on the border of Hertfordshire, Suffolk and Essex and a short ride away from Norfolk, Zero Surplus is well placed to operate as a hub of Sales & Supply Chain recruitment for the East Anglia region.
With our employees coming from the area or having graduated in Cambridge, and possessing a knowledge and appreciation of this region, we understand the local markets, commutable locations and sources of candidates for all levels of commercial role. Our founder has a rich history in both the Sales and recruitment sectors, and has set up this organisation with a view to recruiting the best talent, and is committed to using his knowledge of the industries to guide best practice in all we do.
Historically East Anglia is a region dominated by its farming history, and as a result is a hotbed for brands with ties to both the Fenland farming community, but also agriculture and food. As a result the region is home to brands such as Hain Daniels, Bernard Matthews and Smithfields Foods on the consumer food side of things, as well as produce growers such as Produce World and G’s. With these large organisations operating within the region there have historically been opportunities for Procurement, Merchandising, Supply Chain and Buying professionals with a number of agriculture and farming-related operations, not to mention packaging.
However over the last 30 to 40 years the emergence of Cambridge as one of the the technology and pharmaceutical hubs of the UK has led to an influx of organisations of this nature flocking to the region. This is so they can take advantage of talent studying or researching these fields at the Cambridge universities and colleges, not to mention benefit from the rich talent pool already established in the area. Accordingly IT buyers & Account Management, along with specialist Procurement, Supply Chain, Sales and Purchasing professionals for biotech and pharma industries have also been finding work in the region.
With the rapid growth of the region property developers and construction companies have made base here, and as a result material buyers and quantity surveyors are in need as well. In understanding that where there is growth, there is a need for products and services, we thought it the perfect time to launch East Anglia‘s first and only dedicated Supply Chain and Sales focussed recruitment agency to serve the need and take advantage of this growing market, on both sides of the table.
So whether you are looking for Buying & Merchandising staff, Account Managers, salesmen, purchasers, procurers or surveyors, if you need a candidate to help your business source products or services, or sell products or services, Zero Surplus would love to help.
