Birmingham Family Firm Launches Lockdown Recruitment Drive

BJS Two-Man Home Delivery launch lockdown recruitment drive as Birmingham becomes Britain’s logistics hub.

BJS Two-Man Home Delivery have launched a lockdown recruitment drive to support Birmingham locals and the business’ ongoing growth. Amid the Coronavirus pandemic, Birmingham has reportedly become Britain’s logistics hub; whilst online retail booms in popularity, the sector continues to expand – with Birmingham residing at the heart of this development. Creating invaluable work opportunities, BJS is now seeking a range of professionals to join their team and participate in this exciting transition for British retail.

Birmingham’s economy is said to have been one of the hardest hit by Coronavirus; one tenth of adults are claiming unemployment benefits as the pandemic continues to engulf Britain. Meanwhile, Birmingham officially has the third highest rate of unemployment in the UK. However, as Birmingham has positioned itself on the proverbial ‘map’ when it comes to logistics over recent months, it appears that the city is set to benefit from consumers’ shift towards online retail.

Throughout lockdown BJS Two-Man Home Delivery has experienced a substantial spike in its clients’ sales, subsequently expanding its delivery routes, developing new technology and, in an effort to better support surrounding communities and ensure the ongoing success of Birmingham’s logistics sector, hiring new team members.

From delivery service assistants to delivery drivers, telesales representatives, an area business development manager, crane operators and more, BJS Two-Man Home Delivery are filling job positions which allow for ongoing professional development in a rapidly growing industry. In doing so, BJS hope to bring a sense of security and stability to job seekers across Birmingham.

Discussing the recruitment initiative and how BJS Two-Man Home Delivery hope to drive the development of Birmingham’s logistics sector, Harinder Singh, BJS’ Managing Director, says:  ‘The Covid-19 pandemic has led to an incredibly challenging few months for the entire nation. In Birmingham, unemployment rates have rocketed. Although, logistics centres have experienced an unexpected wave of success; at BJS we are of course thrilled that our clients have successfully responded to the rising needs of consumers, allowing us to deliver items across the UK.”

“However, to ensure that Birmingham’s logistics hub continues to flourish, and to fulfil the employment needs of locals, we are looking to fill numerous roles within the BJS team. By connecting local job seekers with exciting positions, in a business which I am proud to say prioritises the wellbeing of its staff, we hope to inspire positive change, creating an industry which is not only successful, but compassionate and people-driven. After all, if Covid-19 has taught us anything, it’s that we must support one another, invest in the people who surround us and conduct business in a humane, considerate manner.”

“We are delighted to see Birmingham become the home of British logistics; at BJS we have always been proud to work in a dynamic, inclusive and forward-thinking corner of the UK. Seeing the talents of Birmingham’s workers, and the city’s wider influence, be recognised and embraced is a wonderful step forward. We are confident that BJS Two-Man Home Delivery will continue to grow and we hope to always work alongside the community, becoming a stronger and more resilient hub for progress and development.’

BJS Two-Man Home Delivery are grateful to be in a position whereby they can hire new team members; Coronavirus has permanently changed the retail landscape and, fortunately, this has aided logistics businesses. Now, BJS are excited to use their development for good, enriching Birmingham and the lives of those who call this city home. Logistics, and Birmingham, is on the cusp of great things and BJS Two-Man Home Delivery are proud to be leading this progress.
