Retail Recruitment Agency For Germany

Retail Recruitment in Germany

Specialist retail recruitment in Germany? Make Zachary Daniels part of your team.

German retail recruitment that works for retailers

We’re based in the UK. So how come we recruit for retailers in Germany and across the world? Usually, it happens in one of two ways. A retailer works with us in the UK then, because we’ve built an extremely effective working relationship, they ask for our help as they expand into Germany. Or they know we have a long track record of helping retailers launch in Germany. Often it’s a little of both.

German retail recruitment that works for candidates

We recruit German candidates for German retail positions. We also recruit experienced people who want to expand their retail horizons overseas. That’s about more than helping you nail the interview. To make the transition a success you’ll also need everything in place to live and work in Germany. Zachary Daniels’ recruitment specialists see the whole picture. We’ll help you get the job. Then we’ll work with your new employer to make your move simple and enjoyable.


Why choose Zachary Daniels for your retail recruitment in Germany?

There are plenty of other retail recruitment agencies in Germany you could talk to (although don’t feel as though you have to). So why us?

Retail recruiters for challenging times

With everything that’s happened in the past few years, recruitment into Germany and wider Europe has never been more difficult. For candidates, it’s harder to relocate. Rules have changed and so has the recruitment landscape. For clients, the challenge is attracting candidates who are less willing to travel than they once were. 

We’re the people retailers and candidates call when they’ve drawn a blank in-house or elsewhere. After all, anyone can recruit when the going is easy. It’s what happens when the climate is tough that distinguishes the very best.

An extension of your team

We partner with our German retail clients in a variety of ways that work for them. Sometimes we offer ongoing support for their in-house recruitment team. Sometimes we take on an individual bulk recruitment exercise. Sometimes we just take on the work they can’t. 

We tackle the tricky recruitment challenges, the mammoth recruitment exercises or the single, business-critical appointments that you have to get right. And, however you work best, that’s how we’ll work with you.

Sourcing hard to find talent

The problem with the challenges the world’s been facing recently is that they tend to make people opt for safety and stick with what they know. That makes excellent candidates less likely to be overtly hunting for a new position at just the time when you need them most. 

But ZD specialists don’t just rely on jobs boards and the CVs that are sent to us every day. We’ve been building our networks and contacts for years. So when the right candidate eludes you, we know where they are.

About Zachary Daniels

In 2012, we set up a boutique retail recruitment agency that would be run the way we felt an agency should be run. Personal. Passionate. Really committed to our clients, candidates and our team – so much so that we made the company employee-owned (a bit like John Lewis) so everyone here could have a stake in our success. 

It was an approach that struck a chord, so we grew. But we still have that boutique, personal feel, because we know that’s what our clients value most about us.

What our clients say:


I would like the opportunity to say how brilliant Connor Smythe has been in supporting my career change and job search in general. I have thanked Connor personally but believe you should be made aware of how great of a job he has done in supporting me through this journey. (Connor Smythe – Feb 2020)


I would like to thank Zachary Daniels, in particular Adem for being fantastic from start to finish. Absolutely is first class and service and keeping contact with me as their candidate. I was always responded to within 24 hours and the reply would always answer my question and give additional help. I have already started to recommend them to friends and family. Thanks so much.


Adem Ismail made me feel very comfortable and introduced me to (client). He constantly kept in contact with me to make sure that I feel comfortable before an interview with (client). I wasn’t aware to ask questions and he called me back every time i was asking for. All in all I can say that Zachary Daniels is a serious company and I would recommend it to everybody I know.
