Originally coming from a marketing background myself I’ve always had a huge interest in brands, businesses and the people behind them - I find it fascinating to learn about their key motivations and approach to the market. What drives them to position their brand in the way that they do? What kind of impact does it have from a wider commercial perspective? Being a naturally inquisitive person and having a genuine interest in this area, pursuing a career in recruitment seemed like an exciting proposition!

I joined the recruitment industry over 5 years ago and I haven’t looked back since. I’ve had the pleasure of partnering with many fantastic brands and some truly inspirational individuals. Whilst the majority of my recruitment life has been focused within the FMCG Marketing/Commercial sector, I also spent a period of time recruiting HR professionals into companies, managing opportunities across a variety of sectors from financial services to not-for-profit. This gave me an entirely new perspective on how businesses operate.

Now my journey at Pitch has begun. Pitch are true marketing specialists. Founded over 10 years ago by Rob and Ollie they have always had a clear focus and customer proposition - to be industry leaders in the Marketing and Creative recruitment space. With established offices in Birmingham and Manchester, this situates them perfectly to recruit on a UK wide basis. By carving out a niche for themselves they have carefully created, moulded and developed a highly credible agency, made up of expert consultants who honestly care about what they do.

They take a collaborative and consultative approach and refreshingly, they don’t try to compete with the big boys… they instead focus on taking an approach that differentiates themselves from them. Pitch boasts an impressive, diverse portfolio of clients, an extensive and loyal network of candidates and longstanding partnerships with industry bodies such as the CIM and CIPR, running and hosting industry seminars, speaking at events or sitting on the judging panel for Young Communicator of the Year.

I was delighted to join the business as part of their established In-House team, responsible for building upon their network within the FMCG Marketing/Commercial sector. Whether you’re a Social Media Executive, Category Manager, Marketing Director or an NPD Technologist Pitch are a business that is able to, and most importantly, want to support you with your career goals & aspirations.

FMCG is a sector which is constantly evolving. Food and drink manufacturers are always working against the clock to create and innovate, competition is tough, the retailers are tougher and margins are tight. One of the reasons why I am so passionate about recruiting within this sector is because the products they create are relatable and accessible. I recently met with a talented marketer who is currently working for a global drinks brand. When I asked her where her passion came from she spoke about how she loves nothing more than to go to her local supermarket and see the product she helped create displayed there on the shelf. She also mentioned a time when she attended a friend’s dinner party and they brought out a bottle of wine that her team had recently branded and launched. It was clear that this filled her with a huge sense of pride and she said that these were the little things that drive her when times get tough.

In the fast-paced yet wonderful world of FMCG there is always an interesting story to be told. It’s an industry that gets people excited, engaged and ultimately brings them together

If you are interested in pursuing a marketing or commercial career within this sector, or already an experienced FMCG professional looking for your next move then please get in touch with me!
