LUXURY RETAIL RECRUITMENT FIRM
No one excels in luxury retail recruitment like Cooper Fitch
The ‘Retail’ sector plays a significant role in our daily lives and is often seen as a key indicator of a country’s economic performance, especially when measuring economic indicators such as inflation. Retail itself includes a variety of businesses from corner shops to large departmental stores and from specialty fashion stores to hypermarkets. Every country around the world is reliant on the retail sector to provide employment and business opportunities to its citizens.
The Middle East and in particular the UAE is considered to be one of the powerhouses in the retail industry around the world thanks to its state-of-the-art retail infrastructure, ease of doing business and favourable policies related to tax and custom duties. In addition to this, the fact that the Middle East is home to some of the largest airlines in the world, each year millions of travellers either visit countries in the Middle East or transit through to their final destinations, thus getting an opportunity to experience the diversity of the region’s retail sector.
