10 years on: The changing face of retail

Holding court blog:

In the ten years since court & spark consulting was founded there have been some game changing moments within the retail landscape that have not only changed the way we conduct our executive searches, but also the roles we are recruiting for.

Hot career opportunities in the Middle East


Whilst the UK’s retail sector continues to face an uncertain economy, on-going growth development of the retail market within the Middle East continues to generate fresh and exciting career opportunities for experienced retail executives.

Can searching for talent using linkedin mean retailers miss out on good candidates?

Holding court blog:

Linkedin can be a really useful channel for business communications and staying in touch with your network. However in recent weeks we have seen a number of retailers brief us to handle searches after failing to find the right talent having spent significant time trying to use Linkedin as a candidate search resource.

White Stuff
Sue Willis contacted me with a unique and highly relevant opportunity and from that moment on, the quality and frequency of communication was outstanding. Every aspect of the role had been thoroughly researched by Sue ensuring that my brief was both comprehensive and targeted. Throughout the entire interview process Sue was always on-hand to provide detailed feed-back and direction ensuring that I was totally focused and prepared for subsequent meetings. Sue provides an absolutely first-class, highly professional service and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her.
