Success through people

Hi there! We’re The People Pod, a recruitment consultancy with a market-leading track record in recruiting retail management, sales and digital marketing leaders.

We’re recruiters of very simple tastes - there’s nothing we love more than making your career ambitions a reality, whether you’re a candidate looking for your perfect job, or an organisation looking for help finding the talent to take you to the next level.

How do we do that? It’s quite simple (for us, anyway) - combine the experience and expertise of our ex-industry consultants with the unique methods of candidate attraction and analysis that we use, and add a database of tens of thousands of Grade A candidates and you can imagine why we place one in every three candidates we put forward for job vacancies.

Looking for a new challenge?

We don’t do jobs, we do careers. So if you’re looking to take the next step on your professional journey, you’re in the right place. So, why wait? Let’s get started on finding you your next move!


We find great people for great brands. Our success in finding the right people comes from understanding your market, industry, brand and working culture inside out, and having access to tens of thousands of the very best candidates. Interested in saving time, effort and money and finding the perfect next hire at the same time? Of course you are!
