Consumer clients

Consumer electronics

Hybrid working is feeding the demand for consumer electronics in the home. As people take greater responsibility for their health, consumers continue to invest in wearable devices and health-related gadgets. These trends present significant opportunities for consumer electronics businesses. Hiring experienced talent that will facilitate innovative thinking continues to help companies compete amidst economic uncertainty and fluctuating spending patterns, especially on higher-priced items.

Consumer health

Several key trends have emerged that continue to influence innovation in the consumer health sector. Notably, wearable technology is increasingly popular for monitoring physical activity and vital signs. While AI and machine learning are being utilised for data analytics and predictive algorithms. Companies are investing in these areas, while seeking talent that enables them to navigate supply chain challenges, manage rising costs, and maintain a strong focus on quality, compliance, and safety.

DIY

The demand for DIY and home improvement products has subsided since the end of the Covid-19 pandemic, as consumers are spending less time at home. Building robust supply chains and minimising cost increases remain priorities for DIY companies. That aside, new opportunities are always emerging in the sector, as technology and societal trends inspire people to engage in creative and practical DIY endeavours. That is why DIY businesses continue to invest in talent.

E-commerce & retail

The e-commerce and retail sector is evolving rapidly, shaped by technological advancements, changing consumer behaviours, and global events. Retail and e-commerce stores experience similar and conflicting challenges to succeed – and many companies in this sector are balancing the needs of both routes to market. It’s a competitive landscape under constant pressure. Businesses must be adaptable and adopt people with new skills and the ability to anticipate market developments.

Fashion & lifestyle 

The lifestyle and fashion industry relies heavily on global supply chains, and disruptions caused by geopolitical issues or health crises continue to severely impact the production and distribution of lifestyle and fashion items. Seasonal change is a constant driver of innovation and that, alongside an ongoing need for greater sustainability and waste reduction, are major priorities for businesses in this sector. We recruit lifestyle and fashion talent across Europe and into North America.

Charity/Not for profit clients

Economic uncertainty presents challenges for charities, most notably a potential reduction in sources of income. Charitable organisations must therefore find creative ways to continue having an impact on society. Collaborating with non-profits, governments, and private sector entities to address social issues and drive systemic change, is a key way to do this. A passion for making a difference alongside a collaborative, agile and innovative mindset are key attributes required in the sector today.

Public sector clients

The public sector has been increasingly focused on digital transformation. This includes the adoption of digital services, cloud computing, and big data analytics to enhance service delivery, improve efficiency, and reduce costs. Public sector bodies are under sustained pressure to do more with less. And with services becoming centralised and resources constrained, finding people who can drive cost efficiencies are in high demand. Contractor recruitment continues to be an effective solution.
