Accounting for 10% of all employment in the UK and providing upwards of three million jobs, the retail industry is not only big business but a crucial part of the country's economy and is the UK's largest private employer. With roles ranging from shop assistant to head buyer, designer and chief executive, many employers find it useful to utilise the services of a headhunter when in search of candidates at the executive and managerial level.
Headhunters can be imperative in finding the perfect candidate for a role. With a saturated market and surfeit of experienced, personable and professional candidates, employers often find it necessary to take their search to the next level with a headhunter. What a headhunter provides is not only industry knowledge and expertise but absolute dedication to their client's search for the right candidate.
By gaining knowledge of not just the industry in general but of the client's organisation specifically, the headhunter can find the candidate who not only has the most appropriate skills and experience, but also shares the ethos of the company in question and understands the culture of the organisation and team that they are joining. In order to be sure that they are on-track to find the perfect candidate for an executive or managerial role, employers are, therefore, advised to use a headhunter.
