With many companies moving into the eCommerce space and significant investments taking place in eCommerce companies which are scaling quickly, notably in the APAC region, competition for talent is becoming more and more fierce.
As the eCommerce industry continues to grow significantly, the level of complexity required of eCommerce leaders to navigate change, adapt to quickly evolving channels and changes in online consumer behaviour and increase in competition means the industry needs to be creative about identifying and hiring future leaders.
The nature of the industry and the speed of change means that experienced leaders are not only in short supply, but leaders who have demonstrable experience and achievements at the scale required often do not exist. The number of companies with online revenues over €1billion is limited, so the talent pool of leaders with experience of this scale in eCommerce is similarly limited. Talent acquisition and HR leaders will have to rely on other methods to appraise the capability of candidates and become less reliant on a track record of similar achievements and instead, assess talent on potential.
Talent Insight identifies trends, challenges, opportunities and the major players, both businesses and individuals, so you can make better informed business decisions.
We’ll scour relevant talent pools to identify qualified candidates for your talent acquisition team to approach.
From the initial approach to the interview stage, we’ll engage hard-to-find and/or passive talent, screening each candidate against your hiring criteria and deliver a list of ready-now or ready-later candidates for current and future requirements.
Our thorough approach to executive search allows us to identify and secure the high-level candidates who can guide your business through times of transformation.
We provide a fully outsourced process for ensuring leadership hires in your business, allowing you to focus on business priorities without worrying about succession or finding new leaders.
We verify a candidate’s background and credentials to ensure every hire you make is the right one and to mitigate hiring risks.
By identifying the strengths and weaknesses of executive candidates, we make sure only the best join your senior team.
From establishing new talent pools and supporting business growth to identifying leadership teams who can help the company meet new customer demands, our insights will give your talent acquisition strategy an unparalleled advantage.
