Hunter & Chase Retail Headhunters understand that aside from the foremost and obvious importance of branding in the retail sector, competition for consumer spending today is greater than ever. The extremely competitive retail environment is creating pricing and customer service pressures that make it necessary for good retailers to implement strict cost and inventory control, efficient logistics management processes, introduce multiple channels for customers to access products in a timely manner and strong focus on flawless customer service. To continue to succeed, retail organisations must therefore remain focused on adding value along their supply chain so they can continue to attract, retain and build a long lasting relationship with their ever demanding consumer groups.

The last few years has seen most retail and consumer goods companies react swiftly to address the changes brought about by the pervasiveness of the internet and new consumer spending habits within their industry.
