My client are a top tier executive search firm who are looking for a Senior Associate to join their Consumer practice. The Consumer practice has a remit that spans across Luxury, Sports Goods, Retail, Hospitality and Leisure and is the biggest revenue generator for the business, despite having less heads than some other practices.
As a Senior Associate you will manage and lead the delivery of searches. Senior Associates have responsibilities which include market mapping, identifying and validating relevant candidates. They will be able to communicate effectively with the consultants as well as represent clients and the brand excellently. They will be able to use their experience and interpersonal skills to be able to enhance the efficiency of a search’s’ execution.
The Consumer practices focus on the most senior mandates within the sector. The team has very strong ties to their client, contacts are usually CEO, Chairman and other Non-Executive Directors from the board. Compared to other leading search firms, this client promotes associates quickly, as an Associate in this firm the hire should expect to be a Senior Associate within 2 years but you will be encouraged to progress as soon as it has been displayed that you can handle it; last year, in the London office alone, this firm promoted 5 Senior Associates to Consultant. This firm offers a structured career path and the benefits of a very low staff turnover.
The ideal candidate will have at least a 3 years’ experience within a retained search environment, preferably within Consumer or Retail although this is not a prerequisite, strong academics and a strong track record will also be necessary. As well as an excellent career, working environment and training. My client can offer strong base salaries with a generous bonus. Get in touch for more information.
