Wakefield-based Solutions Recruitment has strengthened its existing professional office services and engineering team with the addition of Kyle Tomey, an expert in transport and logistic recruitment who joins the agency as driving and logistics manager.

With more than 25 years’ experience specialising in innovative recruitment solutions for some of the UK’s largest 3PLs, Kyle will strategically work with in-house logistics operations and third party logistics companies and will help Solutions develop its bespoke recruitment offering in this increasingly demanding sector.

Kyle said: “I’ve worked in the transport and logistics sectors for two decades but I’m really looking forward to starting my journey with Solutions – in a market that is currently very challenging I’m relishing the challenge of tackling some of the key issues head on and helping to grow a new division for the organisation.”

Kyle joins the Wakefield office in its 18th month of successful operations, with the team now comprising six members of staff and servicing clients throughout the region.

Craig Storton, operations manager (Yorkshire) at Solutions Recruitment, added: “Kyle’s talent lies in his credible, professional and industrious work ethic, which sees him on call throughout the day and evening in order to meet client demands at any time.

“His experience and personable approach has already seen him secure two supplier contracts with household names and we look forward to watching him grow the transport and logistics division.”

Solutions Recruitment also operates in Newcastle, Teesside and Birmingham, and recruits across a wide range of industries including consumer goods, automotive and aerospace, transport and logistics, built environment, energy and information technology.
