  • Buying & Merchandising
  • Design & Production
  • Ecommerce
  • Marketing
  • Sales  

Our Results

The journey to date

So far we have recruited 35 professionals from middle through to executive level. Most of which have been actively headhunted from specifically picked target companies or came through our extensive network. These placements have already resulted in 9 promotions to date, the candidates have come from a wide range of nationalities including Italian, British, German, French, Spanish, Swedish, Dutch, Polish and Australian. 

We have built a strong partnership with the company, continuously visiting the Head Quarters in Europe to discuss ways we can improve the recruitment process further. Acting as brand ambassadors for the business we have created a targeted candidate pipeline and developed relationships with relevant candidates who are interested in the company and willing to relocate.

Giovanni has been introduced to me at the beginning of my career at VF Corp. His strong values and deep understanding of the business and its unique culture has made him a strong asset for Timberland EMEA. Providing a positive candidate experience, extremely important VF, Giovanni works seamlessly with us to ensure our candidates fully supported throughout the entire process. He plays a key role in supporting me and the business leaders recruiting the best candidates for our Europe offices. I would highly recommend working with him as he is knowledgeable and dedicated to delivering the best service.
