Executive Recruiters for Retail

Your retail recruitment agency

Technology makes a difference

Consumer behaviour has moved rapidly to online shopping and purchasing in the past 12 months, and the impact has been immediate throughout the retail sector. Analysts estimate that retailers’ plans for digital transformation have accelerated by five to ten years. Bricks-and-mortar transactions are being replaced by websites, kiosks, direct mail and catalogs, call centers, social media, mobile devices, gaming consoles, televisions, networked appliances, and home services. Consequently, the recruiting needs of retailers have been focused on the digital transformation.

We have been recruiting for retail firms since the days of cash registers. Beginning with regional retailers looking to improve their Sales and Marketing we branched out into Operations and Finance, becoming trusted advisors to many of the largest retailers in Canada.

We have built a strong network of top performers throughout every level of the retail industry. Through dozens of successful assignments, we have learned the marketplace in depth: the challenges, the competitive landscape, and the requirements for a successful match of client and candidate.

As for technology, Lock has kept up to date with investments in our own AI-based CRM systems. We use ICT, algorithms, and data science on a daily basis to connect with our audiences, assess candidates, and secure top talent for our clients. Let us put our expertise to work for you.
