The challenge:

Proco Global was approached by a leading luxury brand for a confidential and urgent search for a Supply Planning Senior Manager/Director.

The client needed a French-speaking professional to be based in London, with a manufacturing background and cosmetics industry experience.

It was important that the successful candidate had experience dealing with complex Supply Planning and running Production Planning at a senior level. Man-management experience was essential as was the ability to build strong working relationships with suppliers.

The solution:

Our dedicated research team worked with our extensive networks in EMEA to map the market using referrals and recommendations, concentrating on candidates with the necessary technical understanding.

Our French language capabilities and our knowledge of the cosmetics industry helped us deliver a shortlist in just a few days.

Two strong candidates stood out from interviews and there were delays due to internal considerations, requiring Proco Global to manage the candidates’ expectations and keep both engaged in the process.

Our results:

Impressed by the level of candidates we delivered and their great cultural fit, Proco Global has since been appointed as a preferred recruitment supplier for the client. We have been engaged on a number of other challenging searches, all of which we have subsequently filled.
