A series-A startup disrupting the supermarket space hired a Head of Commercial Ops and Marketplace and a Head of Supply Chain to set the goals and strategic direction for the UK’s Supply Chain & Logistics division.

About the Company

Gorillas is on a mission to redefine convenience retail. With their ten-minute grocery deliveries, they are disrupting the supermarket space – one of the biggest markets still in the hands of traditional players. They are a rapidly growing startup and are currently building an outstanding team with skilled members across all domains and backgrounds. They focus on building a diverse and inclusive company culture and aim to become a global leader in on-demand retail.

The organisation turned to Movemeon to receive a shortlist of high-calibre applicants with experience in using data to make strategic decisions and, as well as extensive consulting experience from a top-tier strategy firm.

The Client’s requirements were:
  • 5+ years of experience in Logistics
  • Interest in the grocery/convenience market
  • Prior experience in building and leading teams

How Movemeon Worked

Movemeon Success Manager Sophia reached out to the successful candidate after a conversation with the company on their needs for the Head of Supply Chain role. As the successful candidate had previous experience in Supply Chains and Logistics, both as a Manager at EY and in freelance projects, they seemed like a great fit for the role. The candidate hadn’t really considered permanent roles at this time, but this job looked so interesting that they applied immediately after Sophia reached out.

During the interview process, Gorillas realised that this candidate would be an even better fit for the Head of Commercial Ops and Marketplace position and offered them the role. The whole process from start to offer lasted only 16 days.

Movemeon then introduced Gorillas to another candidate, who was then hired for the Head of Supply Chain role.
