The logistics group GT Logistics has announced the recruitment of 150 to 200 employees in 2019 to support its growth. In 2018, GT Logistic achieved a turnover of €79 million. In a tight job market, GT Logistics' rapid growth faces recruitment challenges. 'Only about a hundred permanent positions could be filled in 2018 out of the 250 jobs offered,' according to the employer. As a result, the company now has 1,100 employees and 300 temporary workers. The temporary workers brought the flexible workforce to a level considered too important and a potential source of a higher number of workplace accidents. To reduce the use of temporary workers, GT is stepping up internal initiatives to attract and train new employees and has also established partnerships with public employment service (Pôle emploi), the Fondation des apprentis d'Auteuil and the Army via the voluntary military service. The company also declares its willingness to assist candidates in their search for accommodation. In 2019, 150 to 200 jobs will be available at the company.
