Success Appointments are delighted to be sponsoring Drapers Next Generation for the second year. We gained a huge amount from last year’s programme. The motivation and enthusiasm of the young attendees was an inspiration, and gave us confidence for the future of our industry.
It is interesting to note the change in the economic climate compared to this time last year. We have seen a marked increase in confidence and investment during 2010. The fact that employers are now seeking both youth, and a mix of experience in their people, reflects the improvement in the business climate. The question remains as to how permanent this will be as we enter 2011. We will soon see, as the effects of the VAT increase, rising raw material costs and cuts take effect.
The modern elements of our industry such as ecommerce, product design and sourcing call for that youthful eye and vision.
However, the industry still lacks “on the job” training schemes for young talent. These can be set up at little cost and the benefits always outweigh the commitment needed to establish them. We call on employers to run in-house training and development programmes wherever practical. It will bring untold benefit your own businesses, the industry, and the economy.

Our brand name speaks for itself. It is always difficult trying to decide which Recruitment Agency to use. So many are offering a ‘fresh way of working…’, or ‘…a different way of looking at recruitment’. Success doesn’t need to make promises like that, because we started out doing things properly in the first place, and continue doing so to this day.
Our consultant team is the most experienced, well-connected and long-standing in the industry. They each specialise in a niche discipline so they offer an expert’s opinion of what will work for you, not what will work best for them. Their client and candidate relationships are deep-seated. They deliver exceptional service and excellent results. Quite simply they are the best at what they do, and this makes us the preferred Recruitment Agency of a huge number of UK and International Retailers.
We engender a culture of success in everything we do, so that’s what you will get.
