FMCG & Retail

The Retail employment market is the interface between fast moving consumer goods and the end consumer. Understanding the changing trends in this important commercial environment is vital.
​As a natural progression from our specialisation in executive level positions in the hospitality and FMCG markets, Hastings now offers upper level positions in the dynamic and evolving retail sector.

Consumer sentiment is shifting away from the basic issues of price and availability towards the product quality and provenance. These changes are affecting FMCG talent pool.
​We have seen a sharp rise in the number of boutique brands entering the market. This in turn is placing increased pressure on the available talent market in the areas of Sales, Marketing and other job categories within the sector.
