RH Freight plans to recruit 31 freight account managers for its UK branch network to be in place by June 2008. The move represents a £1 million investment in training and development costs. RH will increase the number of dedicated account management staff from around 80 to over 110.
Managing Director Ian Baxter of RH says: “There is no doubt that we are operating in a tough trading climate. as are our customers. However, this recruitment process is an essential part of our long term business strategy. We believe that to meet our ambitious growth targets over the next five years we need to invest in new sales and account management now.
