British menswear heritage brand

My client is a well established British menswear heritage brand who are predominately wholesale with a stand alone store in Covent Garden.

Relationship
Lyle and Scott is a client I have been working with since the very beginning of my Four Seasons Career which began in Jan 2011. Lifestyle brands require merchandisers who will work closely within a small team, therefore personality fit alongside the technical skills is key. I ensure that only the best candidates are sent across for vacancies which emphasise the quality over quantity. With every brief I will meet either Lorna or Martin and we will discuss the ideal candidate and I provide consultative advice such as salary benchmarking and the current marketplace. After interviews they will also ask for my opinion on the candidate as I always meet them face to face and get to know them on a personal level as well as assessing their CV.

Outcome
I have successfully worked with the Operations Director to place candidates into the merchandising team and work closely with one of my senior placements - Head of Merchandising & Production. Consequently we have built a strong relationship based on knowledge, trust and expertise enabling us to work exclusively with Lyle & Scott on an ongoing basis.
