So who are we exactly?
Annette Cove Associates attributes its success in Search and Selection to the fact that all of its consultants come originally from the industry and can understand a client’s business from the ground up.
Since launching this venture back in 2008, we have sought to value both clients and candidates alike. Our core principles of confidentiality, trust, empathy and dedication are reflected in everything we feel, think and do.
Annette Cove herself has a distinguished background in footwear stretching back over 25+ years. Initially with Clarks, British Shoe Corporation and Pentland Group (Director of Product for Red or Dead and VP for Footwear at Ellesse), she has now been working for over 10 years as a recruitment specialist in the footwear and accessories sectors and has built up an enviable reputation.
By bringing the most appropriate characteristics to this industry (awareness, honesty, sensitivity, tenacity and resolve) Annette will make your recruitment programme easy and swift.
