MSC Headhunting Can Help Innovative Retail Businesses
The UK retail industry is inherently dynamic because of economic and political affairs effecting consumer and business confidence. The total value of UK retail sales in 2015 was over £339 million, therefore the retail industry continues to be a vital part of this country’s economy, with over 2.8 million employed in this sector. We believe retail businesses will continue to grow given the UK is the largest net exporter.
The retail headhunters executive search team at MSC understand that all clients within this sector have extremely different and specific requirements. The executive projects that MSC attracts within retail range from eCommerce businesses to retail chains, so the organisations can vary hugely in size and focus. The Headhunting service we provide to our clients always begins with a detailed meeting to understand the dynamics of their business and to clarify exactly what is expected from a new hire.
Many of the major players in the retail sector are either consolidating their outlets or are developing their own specific online strategy. It is therefore critical that we have a detailed understanding of the macroeconomic environment as well as issues relating to the internal functions of the organisation.
