Move of the Week: Retailers shift into recovery mode and shake up top teams

Asda fascia

As always during the summer holiday season activity in the jobs market was relatively subdued during August, albeit with one notable exception that I shall come to shortly.

Just one week into September, however, and things are starting to heat up with lots of new enquiries coming in as people return to the office (literally in many cases) and strategies for recovering from the pandemic are fine-tuned.

As I wrote back in July, for many retailers this autumn will mark the shift from survival mode into recovery mode and as such we should expect a rearrangement of leadership teams as businesses look to recruit people with fresh perspectives and sought-after skills.
