Spider secures national recruitment contract with the UK’s leading container transport company

Spider secures national recruitment contract with the UK’s leading container transport company

Spider, the East Anglian based Recruitment company, has secured a national online recruitment advertising contract for Maritime Transport, the UK’s leading container transport company.


This contract comes after a number of successful advertising campaigns over the last two years, which saw Spider attract candidates for Maritime Transport in Liverpool, Manchester, Felixstowe, Southampton and Tilbury, amongst others. Thanks to these successes, Maritime Transport have made Spider responsible for their external online recruitment drive throughout the whole of the year.


Maritime has likened Spider, to the recruitment equivalent of Purple Bricks because they keep costs low through a streamlined online service.  They also screen CVs and provide all of the candidate information to the Hiring Managers in an easy-to-use online portal.

Derek Keeble, HR and IT Director at Maritime Transport, explains: “We used to rely on traditional methods to spread the word about our vacancies. Since we teamed up with Spider, we have seen a great impact on our campaigns and reduced our cost per hire. They do a lot of the leg work screening CVs, response handling and drafting job ads that attract the right candidates, which helps us to react quickly and saves us valuable time. Plus, their online portal and swift reactions help our Hiring Managers stay on track.  As one of the UK’s fastest growing logistics company we need to have a recruitment company that supports our growth with great candidates at a fair price. It is refreshing to deal with such a professional and forward thinking organisation within the recruitment advertising sector.”


Michelle Pollard, Owner of Spider, is delighted with the partnership: “Spider has been able to support Maritime with more reach online and have partnered with all of the premiere job boards in the UK to offer Maritime a completely outsourced recruitment advertising service. Our service has also included writing and publishing effective online adverts, screening candidates and giving Maritime’s recruitment team constant support throughout the process. We’re thrilled to have secured a national contract with them for the next year and we’ll continue to ensure they have a high profile online, so we can find them the best candidates for their vacancies. Maritime Transport are a huge local success story and we’re very proud to support them on their journey”
