Client Services

Switch Consulting understands the critical need to provide a level of service that meets two key criteria. Firstly we must be fully committed to delivering desired outcomes, and secondly that we need to be fully flexible in our approach to meet the clients needs at any given time.

To attract good candidates we first understand what good looks like in each organisation and role. We then use our depth of experience, market knowledge and contacts to identify and attract the most suitable talent. We utilise a range of sourcing and recruiting methods to ensure successful delivery of every assignment and on-going requirement.


The most common form of recruitment for junior to mid-level roles but also often effective at senior levels. This solution provides a cost effective (success only fee) means of recruitment where a quick turn around is required or where the remit of the role is not wholly defined and a broader range of potential candidates provides insight and options for the organisation.

Like all recruitment companies Switch Consulting has an established database of contacts which can provide a useful and quick starting point. In addition, we approach each role from a completely fresh perspective and use a wide range of sourcing techniques to seek out the best talent. Over time we gain a deep understanding of the retailers we partner with and develop an innate feel for the right ‘fit’ and cultural suitability and look to add value through this.

This is a suitable methodology for senior level appointments, business critical, highly specific role needs, and confidential assignments. High-end brands wishing to add value substance to the overall recruitment process, and additionally brands who can benefit from an independent recruiter selling their brand to potential candidates will also gain great value from this approach. We also utilise this method where we source multiple roles nationally for companies with high volume and on-going needs as a means of strengthening our relationship and allowing us to devote greater resources to sourcing and selection time and methods.

Retained Search typically requires considerable time and resources devoted by a dedicated consultant and support team. We have the ability to work with a number of highly experienced and capable independent research individuals / companies. This allows us to select the most appropriate and very best resourcing partner available for specific client needs on an as-need basis.

All companies experience times of significant change and challenges that often require external expertise, skills and experience. Fixed term contracts and interim placements can fulfil this need and deliver change / transformation programs, project based assignments as well as vital cover for maternity and other absence needs.

Because everyone at Switch Consulting has devoted a considerable amount of career time in recruitment (the average length of recruitment experience in our business is over 10 years) we know how to establish your needs quickly and match them with our contacts in the retail sector.
