Hugo Shorten is a Principal Consultant at Redgrave Partners, a London-based global executive search firm. With over 12 years in recruitment, Hugo fills us in on what headhunters are looking for in this tough market.
What type of roles do you specialise in (level, sector, region)?I focus on recruiting Finance & Strategy professionals within the Consumer sector. The Consumer Practice at Redgrave Partners focuses predominantly on retail and FMCG sectors, with a particularly strong presence in luxury. We form partnerships with clients ranging from the highest echelons of the FTSE to private equity-backed SMEs, with the common thread being that all of our clients have placed the attraction of the best human capital high on their corporate agenda.
Whilst I am based in London we have recruited roles in over 20+ countries over the last 3 years and have just finished working on a strategy mandate for a large Australian retailer; at this time of year the proposition was really quite compelling to those shivering in London! Whilst it might sound a little trite, the majority of positions we headhunt for command six figure packages and range up to C-level.
