Retail Recruitment Consultant

You LOVE retail, don't you? Maybe you did once, maybe you've lost your love for the industry. I bet it was the people you met along the way that kept it interesting and inspiring? Maybe you just can't take the weekends anymore - seeing your mates enjoying a Saturday night while you need to be on form for a Sunday shift? Don't even start to think about Christmas???.

Well, maybe there is a way to spark your love again.

Recruitment is a lot like retail. There is a sales process, it's honestly competitive, and its all about your product and people.

So why do we need you?

We are so busy at the moment, and we want to keep our high delivery rates to our customers. We want to talk and meet more people and we are really struggling to find the time in the day.

So, this is where you come in.

You will be a retailer at heart. You may have worked in a fashion store environment like Beckie who has been with us three years or have been a Merchandiser like Lily who joined us 5 months ago and you would have loved retail, and it's people. You want to make use of all the experience and hard work you've put in but maybe it's time for a completely new role within the retail sector?

You will be curious about your approach to work, and be keen to manage your own time and develop your own business. With some very experienced people around you led by Alex and Martin, they will give you all the tools you need to be confident in the role and make it a success.

Some things we can't teach you though. You will need to show some real grit, determination and positivity. You will need to get comfortable delivering bad news also, not everyone you talk to you can help, unfortunately.

The hours can be long, but you won't be working those weekends anymore, oh and we shall be chilling over Christmas too.

However, when it is good, it's really good. When you do place people in a new role, it's a pretty great feeling!

So, why not be curious. Why not ask Beckie or Lily, or any of us why we made the Switch to recruitment from retail.
