Olive Jar was engaged by the Chief Digital Officer at a luxury fashion retailer to build a brand-new, specialist, digital function that would support them in bringing the company a greater deal of the luxury fashion market share.  


Olive Jar was tasked with providing resources to support the client in creating an improved e-commerce platform and overall digital strategy to increase sales, while increasing specialisation within their digital team throughout. 

They also required additional client services staff and technical resources to work on their new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, which would underpin their operational ability to match the demand from their improved digital sales strategy.

Specifically, Olive Jar was contracted to provide:

  • Contract Recruitment 

  • Permanent Recruitment 

  • Recruitment Process Outsourcing 

  • Talent Consultancy 


We conducted several sessions with the client, consulting with them on their requirements, setting priorities and deadlines that would align with their business needs, and using the strength of our network to source the best people for the roles. 


Our specialist in-house talent acquisition teams resourced through our extensive pool of high-calibre DDaT professionals, all suitably vetted, enabling a timely, smooth and effective resourcing and onboarding process. 


Olive Jar became the retailer's main resourcing partner for all its head office requirements. We placed over 25 people within its digital team within 12 months, supporting in reshaping its digital strategy and building the new e-commerce platform. We supplied roles such as: 


  • Project Managers 

  • Business Analysts 

  • Data Analysts

  •  UX Designers 

  • ERP Consultants 

  • Content Writers
