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 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
Proactively approached passive candidates and sought referrals from extensive network
Re-designed story telling for client to present a better image to candidates
Offers Accepted: Retail Director
