The client is a Belgian family-owned manufacturer of high-end sport socks. For many years the company had a factory in Belgium, but it was closed down in the late nineties. Since 2000 a factory was built in Poland and starting from 2006 a joint venture was set up in Thailand.
Since 2012 the company has started a cooperation with a preferred supplier in China. The customer planned to recruit a local full-time sourcing and QC manager in order to improve the supply chain and communication between the Chinese supplier and the Belgian headquarter.
Involvement of Horsten International
Horsten assisted the customer by preparing a job profile and arranging the recruitment process, including the collection of resumes, screening and interviewing potential candidates and helping the customer in the labor contract negotiations and other HR matters.
