Consumer Goods- Cosmetics

Proco Global was retained by this leading cosmetics and beauty company after an unsuccessful search for Nordic Procurement Manager (circa €100,000) to be based in Copenhagen.

The main challenge for this assignment was that the business required fluency in Danish or another Nordic language, combined with the exposure and experience of working within global FMCG organisations. They also required the successful candidate to have experience managing a purchasing team on a range of indirect categories, and technical expertise regarding the relevant product portfolio.

The client also needed this person to start within two months, as time had been lost with the local search firm who had been unsuccessful with the search assignment.

 They were also looking for someone to fit within the culture of the company and boost the overall performance of the department by implementing effective procedures, methods and resources.

Our EMEA research team concentrated their search on the local Danish market focusing on Danish and Nordic candidates with global working experience, the most challenging criteria to fulfil.

First and second stage interviews were carried out within four weeks of the initial brief and an offer was made within six weeks of being assigned the search. The entire search was completed with seven weeks.

The Operations Director was so impressed with the placement and the calibre of the candidates, which has resulted in Proco Global continuing to build the partnership with them and support their future requirements.
