High growth retailer looking to double revenue and on-board a proven Chief Commercial Officer with a background in trading and supplier relationship management. The CEO wanted to see candidates that had worked with a volume of SKUs, managed complex supplier relationships and had been an integral part of business growth.

Business Challenges

With the Black Circles office being located in Edinburgh, we had to identify candidates that either lived locally, lived close to commuter trains across the North (we identified candidates below Birmingham would be unwilling to travel) or were willing to relocate for the role.

Our Approach & Solutions

  • Extensive search of the market highlighting relevant companies with the perfect candidate profile for us to consider

  • Acknowledged the needs for connections to Scotland and Edinburgh

  • Utilised our extensive network to seek recommendations, alongside leveraging the knowledge of our internal teams

  • Compiled a longlist of suitable candidates, met and interviewed everyone interested in proceeding and produced a shortlist of the best candidates in the market

  • Supported Black Circles throughout the interview , selection and offer process

Our Results

We secured a superb CCO with the industry experience and commercial acumen needed to succeed in this role. Delivered within 12 weeks over the Christmas period.
