Walter James: A ZRG Company

At Walter James, we believe in a proactive and strategic approach to our work and are challenging the status quo of what has previously been a reactive industry. Customer experience is pivotal to our success and we create a bespoke service each time we undertake a new project that matches our client's and candidate's needs. We look to take the individual on a journey that further engages them at each stage of the process. 

At the heart of Walter James are our people and culture. A Walter James employee is passionate, knowledgeable and a trusted advisor in their specialist field.

Supply Chain Specialists

Supply chain sits at the heart of many global businesses and the need for true end to end visibility is essential. The continued growth and innovation around big data, analytics, automation and digital are setting ever higher standards of how best in class supply chain is defined.

Modern supply chain executives need to react to volatile and demanding challenges in the market and must be both excellent strategists and operators. The need for emotionally intelligent and strong communicators is essential to work within complex matrix-driven environments that require delicate stakeholder engagement.

The need for transparency and continuous optimisation of the customer experience, matched with eliminating silos and building a collaborative supply chain, truly tests any supply chain executive. However, the hardest task can be in creating a high-performing team. By creating chemistry between diverse professionals it helps push the boundaries of continued excellence.
