Retail Recruitment Agency in Glasgow

Retail Recuitment in Glasgow

Specialist retail recruitment in and around Glasgow? Make Zachary Daniels part of your team. You’re recruiting in Glasgow. Or you’re looking for your next career move there. Either way, we’d love to help.

Glasgow recruitment that works

It’s a results game. But here’s the thing: in recruitment, not all results are the same. For us, it’s not (and has never been) about ‘filling posts’. Anyone can do that. It’s about making a difference. About finding the people who’ll still be with you this time next year. About finding the people others don’t for the niche and hard-to-fill posts others can’t.

Put us to the test.

Local knowledge for better results

Why does it matter that we know Byres Road from Buchanan Street? Or Cumbernauld from Cambuslang? Glasgow’s a big place. So there’s little point advertising your vacancy way south of the river in the far north, where commuting will take forever. It’s little bits of local knowledge like that that ensures we don’t waste your or candidates’ time and get results faster.

A recruitment experience you’ll actually enjoy

It’s not just us saying that. Take a look at our testimonials and you’ll see we really do take the pain and faff out of recruiting in Glasgow. It’s why so many of the clients we work with start out by asking us to help them with one or two posts, and before you know it we’re helping them recruit an entire team for their next store opening. 

Why choose Zachary Daniels for your Glasgow retail recruitment?

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

We really know Glasgow

Having the busiest shopping street and the highest retail shopping spend in the UK outside London should tell you two things about retail in Glasgow: first, it’s continued to thrive when so many retail centres haven’t. And second, that creates an unusually competitive retail recruitment market, the sort of market where the best candidates are snapped up fast. That’s when you need a recruitment partner who knows how to get results even in the most challenging of environments. 

Not your average recruitment agency

Retail recruitment may be the first reason our Glasgow clients and candidates get in touch. But it’s far from the only one. Salary bandings that make your job ads more competitive. Local recruitment market insight. Talent pipelining. We’re the sort of recruiter that can help make your next store opening more successful, less hard work and more profitable. 

We find talent others can’t

Recruit in-house, and you’ll have access to the same job boards everyone else has, plus your social network and staff referral scheme. Recruit with us, and you also gain access to: 

  • Our proprietary in-house database of thousands
  • A LinkedIn network of more than 10,000 on which we promote our opportunities to the Glasgow market
  • A mailing system dedicated to our Glasgow database
  • The contacts of an expert team who, when there’s a spot of headhunting to be done, know exactly who to talk to

Make us part of your team

Tomorrow, you’re going to advertise a new post. You’re probably worrying about whether you’ll get enough applicants of the right calibre. We’d suggest that’s not your only challenge. What happens if you get hundreds of applicants?

One of the most common reasons retailers work with us is because they know their in-house teams simply aren’t resourced to cope with overwhelming response levels. But we are. And right now, we’re working as an extension of retailer recruitment teams across Glasgow. Make us part of yours.

Specialist retail recruitment in Glasgow

From compliance to management, senior appointments to supply chain, we’ve got the people to handle your Glasgow recruitment drive. Right now, we’re seeing real growth in the following specialist areas:

Finance:  Top retail finance talent has never been in greater demand, which means that even when you find a great candidate, others may be after the same candidate too. We put in the legwork with credible candidates from the outset, building relationships that help keep them onside, and less open to talent poaching.

eCommerce recruitment: Hybrid. Omnichannel. Digital. Wherever you’re at on your transformation journey, chances are you’ve had to up the pace of change recently. If that means you need more talent, fast, we know how to deliver to tight timescales without compromising on quality.

UK market entry: Entering the UK market right now presents real opportunities but also real recruitment challenges. We help make life easier at every stage of the journey, from mapping ambitions and setting market-appropriate salaries, to finding the talent you won’t find anywhere else, and doing it all to the tightest of store-opening timescales.

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

Thank you for my lovely card as well, so sweet! I’m really enjoying my new role so thank you again! Louisa was an amazing person to work with, she supported me through every step of the way, finding a new role and going through the interview process can be stressful but Louisa made it a really smooth and quick process. I am really happy in my new role and couldn’t have done it without her! I hope her amazing skill set and enthusiasm is recognised and rewarded by your company.


It is rare to find reliable and trustworthy recruiter but Tamsin has certainly been that. Tamsin helped to fill several roles since working with my current employer, she completely understood our needs and provided us with several exceptional candidates. I would highly recommend Tamsin if you are seeking for a new opportunity or are a business in need of recruitment advice.
