Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of Beauty companies are you recruiting for?

We specialize in a wide variety of beauty brands, some parts of large corporations like L’Oreal or LVMH, and others independent, family owned or private equity-backed. Here are some of the most well-known:

  • in skincare: Lancome, Estee Lauder, Sisley, La Prairie, L’Oreal Paris, La Mer, Nivea, Neutrogena, Olay, Shiseido…
  • in fragrances: Guerlain, Revlon, Giorgio Armani, Chanel, Dior, YSL Beauty, Givenchy, Interparfums…
  • in cosmetics: MAC, Urban Decay, Nyx, Bobby Brown…
  • in personal care: Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Beiersdorf, Biore…

What type of roles are you recruiting for in the beauty industry?

Most of the consumer goods categories are driven by marketing, so we obviously cover a lot of these positions from Product Development and Operational Marketing to Digital Marketing and Social Media at a C-level down to around Manager or Sr Manager level depending on the company.

Sales and Ecommerce also play very important roles and represent a large portion of the positions we recruit for.

Finally but less frequently, we work with most of the support positions in finance, supply chain, research & development, IT, etc…

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.
