How Unrivalled Was Born

Hi, I’m Russell

I’d like to tell you a bit about how we got here.

Like many recruiters, I fell into recruitment. And what a ride it has been! Eighteen years of working with some of the most iconic retailers from, finding them the best talent, from budding Buying Assistants to top-tier COOs and CEOs – individuals who’ve gone on to shape the very fabric of fashion, retail, and digital landscapes.

My journey has meandered around the globe, from the classic British high streets to the sun-soaked shores of Australia. During these 18 years, I’ve seen some things, and let’s just say, not all have been pretty. It’s been increasingly clear that the recruitment industry hasn’t kept pace with the changing times. Too much focus on price tags and turnaround times has led to corner-cutting, a relentless pursuit of the wrong success metrics.

Frustrated and itching for change, I launched a fresh breed of recruitment agency – UNRiVALLED Agency.

Drawing from a rich well of experience, having worked in agencies worldwide and spearheaded in-house talent teams for heavyweights like ASOS, House of Fraser, Britvic, Immediate Media, and General Pants, I’ve garnered priceless insights. I know what working with a recruitment agency should feel like, and let me tell you, it’s time to raise the bar.

This led me to creating UNRiVALLED

At UNRiVALLED Agency, we do things differently. We’re not just offering you a recruitment service, we’re inviting you on an UNRiVALLED recruitment adventure. An adventure where our clients and candidates feel seen, heard, and valued. After all, isn’t that how it should be?

So, here’s to you. Welcome aboard!
