We supply the talent of today; that shapes
the businesses of tomorrow

The dynamic combination of new technologies, coupled with changing consumer habits, is creating a revolution in the consumer markets. Today’s successful brands are applying innovation across the whole consumer journey. These developments drive fresh approaches to culture, collaboration and team structures and demand a new generation of talent and skills. Brands need people who are tech savvy, analytical, inquisitive and have a complete grasp of the only constant, which is change.

At Quest, we understand the skills and competencies that brands need to succeed today and tomorrow. We’ve been immersed in the consumer market for over 20 years and, from our bedrock in retail, we too have evolved to reflect the diverse consumer markets.  We pride ourselves in match-making brands to talent – the stars that can appeal to the hearts, minds, and wallets of today’s consumer.

Our global capability is achieved through our two offices, located in the heart of London (Oxford St.) and Dubai; these offices serve EMEA and APAC.

Our service and expertise are split across two core divisions:

All Things Retail

We are retail recruitment experts and can provide all of the talent you need across both Retail Operations and Head Office through our specialist teams.

Consumer Markets

Our Consumer Division covers a broad range of verticals – FMCG, Leisure & Travel, and Media – with a key focus on roles that impact the customer experience. The division is split between Sales & Marketing and
E-commerce/Digital.

Our Consultants

At the heart of every decision we make, and every action we take is our core value: Quality. We strive to embed Quality in everything that we do, and to do this our consultants must have three vital ingredients: Skill, Knowledge and Passion.

Our consultants are skilled recruiters, many of which have come from retail industry backgrounds, and have a deep understanding of the industry.  We make the recruitment process, which can be complex, simple and enjoyable.

A Leading Voice

Our insight, knowledge and beliefs have helped shaped the retail and consumer market over the last 20 years. We are in constant dialogue with key market-players and, as our sister brand is Retail Gazette, we have the access to the latest news and trends. 

The blend of recruitment experience and passion enables us to give candidates invaluable career advice and opportunities. For our clients, we can offer them the inside track on the market, and the stars that are shaping it. The publishing relationship we have allows us to promote our clients’ employer brands within Retail Gazette.
