Annabel Plowman heads up the Retail and FMCG team here at Cast UK and has worked in recruitment for over 3 years now but prior to this she worked in the Retail sector.
On Friday 25th November the UK’s consumer market will be ready to bag a bargain in what’s anticipated to be the biggest Black Friday to date.
A lot of work will have been done by retailers to ensure the Black Friday period goes to plan, evaluating logistics, supply chains and online and offline IT requirements well in advance.
This year the 25th November marks the 6th Black Friday in the UK, which began back in 2010 with Amazon.co.uk being the first company offering discounts in Britain.
The emergence of Black Friday and then Cyber Monday (falling 3 days after) in the UK have massively impacted on the dynamics of consumer shopping trends around the Christmas season.
