UMENCO is Australia’s leading human resources, headhunting and career coaching agency, connecting fashion and lifestyle brands with the best talent from across the globe.

Based in Sydney, we recruit for roles across a broad range of disciplines within the fashion, beauty and lifestyle industries, including design, production, finance, buying, marketing, PR & communications, HR, technology and all channels of sales including E-commerce, retail and wholesale. Executive search and headhunting are our key areas of expertise and we are at the forefront of supporting brands to secure the best talent in the global market, with a focus on sustainable fashion specialists and individuals with proven career success in driving direct to consumer business models.

Our industry knowledge and experience with careers in fashion informs everything we advise on, from recruitment, leadership development and creating sustainable workplace cultures, to the foundations of career coaching, including writing a CV, creating a LinkedIn profile and preparing for job interviews.

Our holistic and creative approach to recruitment, HR and career coaching allows us to dive deeper into key objectives for the brands and individuals that we work with. For example, through in-depth behavioural-based interviews we identify the core values, skills, achievements and key drivers of each talent, and partner them with clients whose brand in aligned.  This innate understanding of brand alignment is a significant factor in our success locally and internationally in recruitment. We are committed to supporting brands in building their dream teams, and individuals in achieving their career aspirations.

Beyond the headhunting process, we operate Project You, a career coaching service that really caters to the individual, and helps talent to realise their potential with a wide range of practical tips and advice.  Our global presence spans key cities across the globe, with successful placements and partnerships in Australia, New Zealand, Paris, London, New York, and Los Angeles, and we are continuously expanding.
