Retail & FMCG

Focus on Retail & FMCG

Moon Consulting’s Retail & FMCG sector focuses on attracting dynamic and analytical leaders to this multi-million pound industry. The UK’s retail and FMCG market has a world-class reputation for quality and is an industry leader for innovation. In this industry, brand engagement is vital for success and cross-cultural understanding of consumer shopping habits plays a significant role. Technology is integral factor for developing these global markets; the internet has irreversibly changed the consumer shopping experience. Mobile sales are currently the fastest growing sub-sector, with over 40% of online sales now being processed through mobile devices. The retail & FMCG sector is crucial to our national wealth, employing over 10% of the UK workforce and generating over £300billion to the economy each year (UK Retail Industry: International Action Plan).
