Food and non-food

Michael Page Retail know that as a food or non-food candidate, your skill set and product experience can be interchangeable - meaning increased options and opportunities when you're looking to grow your career.

We recruit for a range of retail, import and wholesale organisations across the country. We have specialist food and non-food teams based at each of our Retail offices, their specific product areas of expertise include:

  • Food
  • Drink
  • Homeware and furnishing
  • Health, beauty and healthcare
  • DIY and electrical
  • Books and stationary
  • Gifts, impulse and seasonal


Your consultant may be a specialist in a specific product area or geography but as part of Page Group we are able to offer opportunities across the UK and beyond, and the support to allow you to change your product area of focus. Because our consultants work within a non-commission based environment, you can be guaranteed impartial advice and the know-how of a whole team of recruitment professionals to secure you the job that you're after.

We recruit both permanent and interim jobs for organisations including leading blue-chip retailers and independent wholesale organisations. Our well established network allows us to recruit effectively from entry level roles through to senior management positions within commercial and trading functions. We have a particular specialism in e-tail jobs.
