Are you considering changing jobs within the luxury retail or fashion sectors? We recommend you start looking now as there will be more competition the longer you wait, and let a recruitment agency help you - we can recommend a brilliant one. Still unsure? These are the benefits of letting one of our consultants help you find your next job. 

1. IT’S FREE! Letting us help you find a job is completely free of charge, no hidden fees. We get paid by the clients we partner with - never the candidates. 

2. Weight off your shoulders Instead of spending countless hours searching for jobs and amending your CV/Cover Letter for each application, we’ll do the job for you. You’ll be put forward for suitable roles, but only after you've been briefed and confirmed your interest. 

3. We are market experts In addition to multiple years in recruitment, the majority of our consultants come from a luxury retail and fashion background. We know exactly what our client’s requirements are, what salary you can push for with your experience, and what the current market looks like within your field. 

4. We hear about new openings first As an agency we have built long-lasting relationships with the brands we partner with and are in constant communication with them. Because of this, we are often the first to hear about new openings and can help you get an interview before the job is even on the market! 

5. A more tailored and efficient job search You might feel productive if you apply to 20 jobs in a day, but if they are not relevant to your experience, or unrealistic, it's a complete waste of your time. Our consultants, on the other hand, will only put you forward for roles that are right for you. To ensure we have a clear sense of who you are we aim to meet all our candidates face-to-face. We want to establish what your ambitions are, what sort of working environment you thrive in and what is important to you in your new role. At the end of that meeting we are able to discuss and suggest specific roles with you. 

6. Support, guidance and feedback We will support you and monitor your application on your behalf from the initial interview to potential employment. We will prepare you for interviews and strengthen your skills and we always ask the client for constructive feedback afterwards. If your application is successful, we will help you negotiate your salary and benefits. We also follow up with you after your start date to ensure you are happy in your new role.

7. An ongoing relationship A recruitment agency doesn’t need to be a one-off support system. If we stay in touch, we can help you down the line when it's time for your next career move. A tip is to add your recruitment consultant on LinkedIn to make it easy to get back in touch.
