Retail and Fashion Recruitment Agencies

Fashion and retail recruitment agencies have been in the business for well over two decades now. Although the industry is fairly new, it has gained massive popularity particularly with young professionals.

Brands such as Burberry, Marks & Spencer, Next Plc, and ASOS are some of the biggest employers in fashion retail.  There are currently over 400,000 people employed in the sector. Over 59,000 of these are in retail of footwear and leather goods. Individual employees in fashion and retail contribute around £40,000 annually to the country’s economy.

Although it is not a traditional sector, it has been greatly boosted by tourism and fashion events such as the London Fashion Week. Aside from traditional women’s clothing, men’s fashion retail is also growing rapidly. World famous shopping destinations have also given the industry a boost. These include the Savile Row, Oxford street and malls carrying reputable brands located around the country.

Some of the world’s leading fashion brands employ the use of recruitment agencies to fill positions such as buying and merchandising, retail operations, design, digital, and creatives among others. Fashion and retail employment firms scour thousands of applications to find you candidates who will offer your clients personalised and customer-focused services.


Applicants for roles in this sector are required to drive sales and build customer loyalty. This can only be achieved through distinguishing your brand name. It is therefore important for individuals in this sector to be passionate, creative and have an overall drive to succeed.

Applicants who have a degree in fashion and design or other related disciplines are highly sought after. Schools such as the London College of Fashion are now offering specialised fashion and retail courses for students aspiring to start a career in this dynamic sector.


The average rate for a client advisor, according to fashion and retail recruitment agencies, is around £17,500 per annum. Merchandise managers can make up to £59,500. There are also hourly rates for contractual and temporary staff at £7.70 per hour for junior positions and up to £20.02 per hour for position of shape manager.

These rates may be dependent on the employer and your experience.
