27 Retail Manager French Luxury Fashion Brand

Retail Manager - French luxury fashion brand

​A French luxury fashion brand had a newly created role of Retail Manager (an equivalent to Country Manager). 

Our client had been looking for a Retail Manager to join the team; however, after combing the market for five months, the client was unable to identify anyone who was suitable for the role. 

Argyll Scott was engaged to source for the right talent and fill this vacancy.

The challenge:

  • The compensation package was not attractive in terms of market standards

  • The brand was not particularly popular in the market, therefore not many candidates were interested in these opportunities

  • Only local candidates were being considered

Our approach:

  • Proactively approached passive candidates and sought referrals from extensive network

  • Re-designed story telling for client to present a better image to candidates

The outcome:

Offers Accepted: Retail Director

Timespan: Two months
