C2 Retail Recruitment is a Retail recruitment agency with a difference

Our Difference


​C2 Recruitment is an independent retail specialist with a difference. Whilst others can no doubt claim this too, our consultants have actually worked in the industry and been successful. Every single person we recruit into our business has worked in either retail, fashion, hospitality and leisure and we believe this really does give us the edge. It’s a reason why the leading retailers in the UK are working with us and why our portfolio of clients is growing all the time. We have been in your shoes and worked the late nights, stressed about sales promotions and worked to targeted KPI’s and we use this experience when screening candidates. 

We are not just an agency that churns out CV after CV; we are a consultancy that carefully selects the very best candidates for your business. Being ex retailers gets respect from candidates too as they are talking to people who have actually been there and not corporate sales robots. 

C2 Retail Recruitment is confident we will exceed your recruitment expectations in every possible way. We will work closely with you to deliver quality candidates and take the hassle out of your existing recruitment procedures whilst speeding up the whole process. We are also confident of driving down your spend and in particular your cost per hire. In turn this will lead to higher staffing retention levels for your business.

We pride ourselves on a personal 121 service which is hassle free and cost effective. We take the time to listen to you and ensure we gain a thorough understanding of your company culture, values and vacancy specifications. This can be either by spending time at Head Office or in-store alongside teams and this gives us a real feel for your business.

Call us today and speak with to one of our specialist consultants who will get to know your business and discuss your recruitment needs.

"At C2 Recruitment the foundation of our success is the success of our clients and candidates. To grow our own business we have to add real value and this means actually being different not just saying we are.

We can structure our retail recruitment service to suit 99% of clients – we’re flexible enough to be able to do that more or less every time. We save clients time, money and effort. But we want to offer more and we do.

All of our consultants have specialist backgrounds and recruit in sectors they have previously worked in. This gives clients and candidates a great deal of confidence knowing their consultant actually understands their needs first hand."
