The retail, consumer and leisure sector will only survive and thrive by having the most talented people in their business – building a great brand in not enough. Whether in front facing sales and customer service roles or in “behind the scenes” functions such as buying, design, marketing and logistics, great leadership and a productive, engaged workforce are necessary factors for success.
Today’s leaders in this field need to be agile – able to adapt to rapid change and customer needs.
The team at bfpeople have extensive work experience in retail, brands, hospitality and leisure. We have created and grown consumer brands and worked in senior design and buying roles in national & multiple retailers. We have also sold products to independents, multiples and grocers, as well as to the hospitality industry.
bfpeople has designed in-house recruitment and assessment processes for leading FMCG and car brands, created situational judgement questionnaires for luxury retailers and logistics firms and trained multicultural staff in supervisory and presentation skills.
Whether you are an established retailer, an emerging brand or in hospitality and leisure, we have stood in your shoes. You can trust bfpeople to support you in finding and getting the most from your people.
