Zachary Daniels is now employee-owned!

Senior Retail Recruitment

Director of… Head of… Regional… when the role has those words at the front of it, we’re ready to make your next senior appointment easier.  

Senior Recruitment for Clients

Every appointment matters. But some matter just that little bit more. That’s certainly true of your senior recruitment, where the right person in the right role at the right time can have a profound effect on your business that stretches far beyond their immediate roles and responsibilities. So for senior appointments that deliver real impact…

Senior Recruitment for Candidates

Ambition is one thing. But when you’re looking for your next senior appointment, it has to be the right move at the right time to the right retailer. At ZD, we do more to ensure the people and companies we match are perfectly suited to each other. So if you’re looking at opportunities right now and wondering if the grass really is greener, we’ll make sure it is. 


Why Zachary Daniels?

We know. Every retail recruitment company promises to look further and dig deeper to deliver results. The difference is we actually do it. Here’s how:

Access to the level of talent and experience you need

The higher up the organisational ladder they climb, the less chance there is your next senior appointment will be sat on a jobs board waiting for a recruiter to find them. They may be open to a conversation, but you’d only know who and where they were if the channels of communication were already open. That’s where our connections count. 

Supporting your in-house team

For years you’ve trusted your in house team to deliver the right people, and you’ve no reason to change that. But every now and again, when there’s a major recruitment drive underway or a senior appointment to be made, it helps to have a little extra recruitment oomph to take some of the load. That’s why major retailers trust us to augment their recruitment team.  

We know retail

You’re recruiting for an area manager position. Or a senior buyer. Or perhaps someone to help lead your international expansion. Who’s best placed to help? Someone who knows recruitment? Or someone who’s been an area manager, a buyer or has worked in international retail and knows recruitment? Choose ZD, and you get the full skillset, which makes an enormous difference. 

Responsible headhunting

You can’t be silly about headhunting. Go blundering in and you risk damaging relationships with…. well, everyone. So if we know the perfect senior retail candidate for you, we’ll approach any headhunting with discretion, honesty and transparency. No pushiness. Nothing aggressive. Just gentle nurturing of sensible, credible targets. 


Senior appointments done better with ZD:

Brief: Every recruiter talks about building a ‘deep understanding of your business. So what makes us different? Well, there’s deep and there’s deep. The first supports recruitment for the immediate, specific role. The second, which is where we sit, gives us such a rich understanding of your business that it helps underpin all your recruitment. This means you get better results for every appointment, faster.

Identify: Over the years, we’ve built a network of tens of thousands of likely candidates. With your brief agreement, we’ll scour it to find the people no one else can. 

Assess & Shortlist: Let’s make this easy. At the end of this part of the process, you’ll have a handful of people ready to interview – and we reckon you’ll be able to say yes to any of them. 

Interview & Offer: The interview matters, of course. But with senior appointments, what really matters is that, once you’ve selected your ideal candidate(s), their onboarding is trouble-free. We do the due diligence to ensure that nothing unexpected gets in the way of an easy appointment.
