Keeping fashion moving

by Lucy Watts on November 14, 2013


Picture this…it’s your mum’s birthday tomorrow and you’ve been too busy to buy her a gift, but the shops are now shut. What do you do? Well you, like thousands of other consumers, turn to online shopping to click and buy for delivery the next day.

Recent figures show that 85% of the world’s population now shop online and only 15% are shopping on the high street to buy fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) such as clothes, gifts and even food. Consumers are expecting the same great gift wrapped shopping experience ordering online as they do when walking into a shop.

This means that competition between retailers is getting higher and brands are fighting to be the ones who are relied upon for fast, efficient service, allowing customers to place an order at 10pm for delivery first thing the next morning. Stafforce Recruitment is there to make sure this happens!

Stafforce started working in the retail distribution sector in 2006, providing hand-picked, high quality workers to a new premium online fashion retailer. Through our support, it is now the biggest of its kind in the world. As our reputation in the market grew, we began working with another big UK brand in 2010 to help them cope with their demanding summer sales. We now supply 250-300 workers a day to six of their sites.

So when you open the door to your early morning delivery of a present that will bring a smile to the face of someone special in your life…remember that it might well have been a Stafforce worker that packed and dispatched your order the night before!
