Why work with us?

Why work with us?

Let’s be honest recruiting that superstar candidate can be a bit of a minefield. With so many options in front of you; print advertising, networking, social media, headhunting, referrals, job board searching and online advertising, how can you ensure you are using the best tools and have enough time to fill that important vacancy?

At Fluid Fusion we take that challenge away by removing the typical sales pitch and proposing the process that is exactly right for your job. Some jobs may need all of the options above, some may not and we tailor each and every search to what will both fill the position and offer you the best value.

This smarter and more versatile approach is underpinned by extensive knowledge and direct experience of the very market you operate in. Whether your company is a niche wine business, global beer giant, iconic spirits producer or a cutting edge new soft drinks business we understand what makes an exceptional brand manager, what a true innovator looks like, who excels in grocery account management and what the actual differences are between on and off trade channels.

In addition we acknowledge that the best talent is not always looking and use established networking and headhunting techniques to source and attract those passive candidates. As the right candidate may not necessarily be in the drinks market we continually source candidates from associated markets such as Blue Chip, FMCG and Luxury Goods.
