Zachary Daniels is now employee-owned!

Buying, Merchandising & Ecommerce Recruitment

Boots. Dunelm. Wickes. When the UK’s biggest retailers need to find the right people for their businesses, they do it with us. Here’s why.


Buying, Merchandising & eCommerce Recruitment for Clients

When it comes to eCommerce recruitment in particular, a long-standing shortage of talent means a) it’s often a candidate’s market and b) every hire seems to be an urgent one.

Fortunately for you, we don’t just rely on the same old jobs boards to get results. Our searches dig deeper and look wider, targeting exceptional people others can’t because the candidates aren’t actually in the jobs market. They’re hidden from view, open to offers but not actively searching.

We know where they are. Which means we can get results fast without ever compromising on quality.


Buying, Merchandising & eCommerce Recruitment for Candidates

Don’t take this personally, but we don’t want to see you too often. Once we’ve found the perfect job for you, we rather hope it stays that way for a good while. To ensure it does, we work hard to get under the skin of our clients, holding honest conversations with them to understand their ideal candidate. That means we can then hold an honest conversation about whether that’s you. It’s an approach that means, when your find your next job with us, it’s more likely to be a job you love.


Why Zachary Daniels?

We know. Every Ecommerce recruitment specialist promises results to clients and candidates. But here’s a surprise – we keep our promises. And that’s not all that sets us apart:


Results-only recruitment

When you put us to work for the first time on hiring your next buyer, merchandiser or Ecommerce specialist you only pay for successes. It means there’s no risk to you. And it gives us a chance to show you what we’re made of. Give us a try.


Your recruitment shield

There are a lot of buyers and merchandisers looking for work right now. Run the recruitment yourself and there’s nothing between you and the 800 applications you’ll receive for that Buying Manager role. That’s a lot of applications to sift through.

But with Zachary Daniels in your corner, we’ll be the gatekeeper. That means we do the due diligence and send only the best candidates your way. It also shields you from having to respond to the 799 people who weren’t successful.


Beyond the job description

We have a big reputation for finding the quality candidates others can’t. We do that by matching great people to your company, not just the job description you send us. So when we say ‘we get under the skin of your business’ (as virtually every recruiter does) we really mean it because understanding your culture is a big part of how we get results.


These buying, merchandising & eCommerce clients recruited with us:


Nike Team

American Golf

Magnet Kitchens

Retail recruitment is easy with ZD. Here’s how it works:


Yes, we’ll collect your job description. But we’d like a chat with you to get beyond the basic skills and experience, because we all know the perfect candidate is about more than that. There’s a certain something that makes them the perfect fit for your business. Understanding your company values and culture is what helps us find it.



We search far and wide doing what it takes to find just the right people. We have a huge network of ‘passive’ candidates that no one else has. And if finding the perfect person means running a bespoke ad campaign or a little discreet headhunting – we’ll do that too.


Assess & Shortlist

We take screening really seriously, because at the end of the process we don’t want to present you with a dozen ‘maybes’ per post. We’d much rather give you the challenge of deciding between three definite ‘yes’s.


Interview & Offer

We’ll make the arrangements with the candidate, help with negotiations and ensure the whole process is a smooth one.


We found the right people for PEPCO

“I have worked with [Zachary Daniels] on numerous projects over the last 5 years.

“[They are] always on point in understanding client and candidate needs, ensuring a cultural fit early in the process for better faster results. This comes about through [their] honest and direct approach.

“[The ZD team] always take the time and make the effort to keep candidates and clients up to date throughout the process, showing a level of communication and commitment that is quite rare in today’s world.”

Merchandising Consultant, PEPCO, Poland


Going the extra mile for candidates

[Zachary Daniels] were really friendly and easy to talk to. Nothing was too much trouble and [they] went the extra mile when I requested extra details before accepting the role. As a product management professional it can sometimes be difficult getting recruiters to understand your skillset and how these can be transferred between industries, but [ZD] got that and helped me to land my new role in eCommerce for a European firm.”
