Retail brands already have to face enough challenges. Don’t let your senior hires be one of them.
In terms of retail FMCG recruitment we believe consumer and retail brands can’t afford to wait around. They’re facing big challenges – global branding, changing consumer media habits, supply chain management – taking months to find much needed talent just isn’t an option!
That’s why our Retail & FMCG practice is so successful. At NJR, we fill briefs for permanent and interim positions in weeks if not days. We can do this because our world-class recruiters are not like recruiters found in a typical agency. All have real-world, senior-level Retail and FMCG experience.
Combining our experience and rigour with the speed and reach of the web, we then deliver candidates who truly fit with your culture and long-term needs – fast. That means:
✓ 99% success on retained assignments ✓ Guaranteed time frames ✓ Perfectly matched short-list within 2 to 4 days for interim roles ✓ Perfectly matched short-list within 2 to 4 weeks for permanent roles
Robert Woolfson, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, EvoShave
“NJR provided EvoShave with a number of excellent candidates for two upper management positions (Global Sales Director and Head of Marketing) which we filled within a relatively short space of time. In any selection offered there were always at least two candidates who fulfilled all the requirements within the budgeted salary requirements. We found NJR easy and fair to work with and I would highly recommend them.”
