What kind of roles are you recruiting for in the Fashion industry?

- Director, VP or SVP of Marketing
- Director, VP or SVP of Ecommerce

What is retained executive search compared to professional recruitment?
Our retained executive search services is a specialized recruitment service that focuses on sourcing and placing high-level management and leadership positions, such as C-suite executives, SVPs and VPs within an organization. In this approach, the hiring company enters into an exclusive agreement with the recruitment firm and pays an upfront retainer fee.
The search process is more thorough and time-intensive, involving extensive research, in-depth candidate assessments, and personalized attention to the client’s needs. Professional recruitment, on the other hand, targets mid-level roles and individual contributor positions within an organization.
The process is typically faster and more streamlined, utilizing also a direct approach of passive candidates, the recruitment firm’s existing candidate network, job advertisements, and other sourcing techniques to find the right candidates. In this scenario, the fee structure is largely based on contingency, meaning most of the fee is due only when a successful placement is made.
