Case Study: Hobbs
“JGA have never failed to deliver on our recruitment needs. They are honest, transparent, realistic and quick to deliver. They take time to understand the brief and nuances of every role and, in turn, ensure they do the same with each candidate. It is rare that we haven’t taken any candidates forward to interview from JGA. They are strong relationship builders and really invest in their clients plus they have a great humour around them which means the JGA team are a joy to deal with. You’d be crazy not to use JGA.” Hobbs Resourcing Manager
Hobbs is a leading international fashion retailer with a global brand synonymous with the best of British design. Fusing Britain’s reverence for tradition and its tradition for irreverence, Hobbs has several hundred employees working in over 100 stores across 20 countries. Discovering JGA after an exhaustive search for a specialist recruitment consultancy in Payroll & HR recruitment, Hobbs admired JGA’s focus, negotiated terms and briefed hiring requirements.
Hobbs planned to roll out an aggressive international and multi-channel expansion plan, growing their online proposition across the 20 international markets Hobbs serve.
Expanding rapidly, Hobbs expressed a desire to hire individuals with an interest in fashion and experts within their fields to help drive the organisation’s growth. Hobbs wanted to recruit an experienced Head of Finance to drive the organisation forward and achieve stretching targets whilst delivering improved finance and payroll operations.
JGA recruited for 6 vacancies for permanent and temporary roles, placing 5 professionals with a strong cultural and personality fit. The remaining vacancy was filled by an internal candidate.
