Retail & Fast Moving Consumer Goods

The Retail & FMCG industry has changed dramatically, with:

  • More merchants and moving towards Omni channel retailing
  • More global consumers factoring CRS into their purchase decisions, meaning that FMCG majors and Retailers have been prompted focus on social and corporate responsibility
  • The growth of M - Commerce as a complimentary tool supporting (now "traditional") E - Commerce
  • Social networks becoming distinct retail platforms, giving FMCG suppliers direct access to consumers, occasionally at the expense of bricks - and - mortar Retailers
  • A huge technological shift in (i) Point of Sale platforms, (ii) Big Data influencing merchant and buyer decisions, (iii) in - store Analytics via "Beacons", (iv) location - generated marketing based on the growing use of Wearables, (v) the preparation for Augmented Reality impacting customer choices, with virtual changing rooms and (vi) 3D printing
  • Merchants and FMCG companies having to be more imaginative in the ways that that incentivise buyers to be more loyal
  • Merchants and FMCG companies taking control of supply chains
  • Localization of sore formats and product mix

The above trends mean a continuing demand for personnel with specific skills that are in short supply overall and, perhaps, not always readily available in the locations where they are needed.
