From time to time I do a spot of head-hunting. This time it’s for one of my favourite clients, a European, second generation family-run, profitable and innovative company. It is setting up something which will be quite ground breaking, disruptive even in a business sector which has longevity. I try and cast my recruiting net far and wide, as well as mining LinkedIn and XING. So I thought; “why not use my blog?”
Ideally, I’m looking for someone with around 5 years’ experience in Digital Sales/Marketing and/or e-Commerce who’s German mother tongue, speaks some French and English, and is either currently living in or wants to live in Paris. Here’s the advert below, if you know of anyone who might be suitable and interested, please pass it on.
Thanking you in advance for your kind consideration and assistance.
