Executive search for the retail and creative industries

When you need to find or nurture top talent in your organization, you can’t afford to take chances. Hoping you’ll find the best, or hoping that they’ll deliver, isn’t good enough. You need to work with a specialist who will help you to make the best decisions. BFP has been recruiting and developing leaders for 24 years and is a go-to search firm for the retail and creative industries. Our consultants and staff have first hand experience of our key sectors which include:

Retail design and marketing (including POS, POP and shopfitting)

BFP has its roots in the point of sale, point of purchase and retail design industries working with many leading producers, designers, agencies and installers. In recent years this work has expanded to include working directly with brands and retailers to hire leaders and technical specialists in VM, design and trade marketing.

Retailers, brands and suppliers

We have extensive knowledge of retail head office roles and a deep personal understanding of the issues facing brands and suppliers. We’ve worked with a vast range of clients and sectors including health & beauty, toys & crafts, homewares & furniture, fashion & accessories and consumer electronics.

Hospitality and interior design

A growing area of business for BFP is the high-growth business of hospitality interior architecture & design and FF&E. From global hotel groups and leading design agencies to niche leisure brands, we support projects through ensuring the right people are leading them.

Advertising, branding and marketing communications

We’ve supported global and local agencies in the appointment of creative directors, account directors and new business directors as well as other key positions. The race for talent is fierce in this arena and agencies thrive or dive based on the skills, ability and attitude of their people.

With offices in London, Derby and Glasgow our work is both national and international with experience in Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific. But however good we say we are here, we believe it’s best demonstrated in person, over a coffee and doughnut.
