ROLES WE
RECRUIT

Our approach is determined by you, the client. We listen to your needs and then, together create the perfect approach.

“The quality of candidates McCarthy have been able to source for us has surpassed those that we have been able to find ourselves and additionally, they have even managed to fulfil what we would consider our hard to fill vacancies without fail.”

HR Director - Carpetright

“The service that we received from McCarthy Retail was exemplary. We would like to personally thank our Account Manager for her commitment to us, she worked hard and totally understood us from our very first conversation. We will definitely always use McCarthy Retail for our recruitment and highly recommend others to use you too.”

Joe Philips - BP Retail

“I approached McCarthy when we had an unusual requirement for assistance with a volume management recruitment campaign. We worked together to create a bespoke process and a way of working that delivered what we needed in terms of numbers and time scales whilst remaining within my budget. McCarthy has delivered over 200 hires with a ratio of fewer than 3 CVs to successful placement in short time scales. They have assisted us as a true partner and their professionalism and passion for doing a great job shines through with each interaction.”

Jon Warwick - Sainsbury's

“We wouldn’t go to anyone else for our senior recruitment. McCarthy goes above and beyond every time and we recognise that they deliver candidates to us that we just wouldn’t attract ourselves. We know from experience that their candidate management and rapport building has ensured senior hires have engaged with us because of their professionalism and ability to sell our opportunity with engagement and accuracy.”

Carolyn Daykin - Electrolux

“We have used McCarthy to assist with the rewriting of our assessment material and used them for a number of consultancy projects, including the training of our Store Management Team on competency interviewing which really demonstrated McCarthy’s commitment to our overall working partnership. As a business, we are very specific about our brand and the staff we take on to represent the Pure Collection ranges in-store, as such our providers need to adhere to very specific standards.

McCarthy took time to truly understand what we were looking from in both skills”
