Retail / FMCG
Bricks and mortar retail are suffering under Covid-19, therefore Demand, S&OP and Sales & Marketing roles are prevalent. On the other hand e-commerce is booming; global e-commerce sales will top US$3.5t in 2020, an increase of 18% from the year before and is expected to double by 2023 to US$6.5t.
Logistics, IT, software, etc are all in demand. Changes in lifestyle majorly drives the growth of the FMCG market. Moreover, increase in global population, growth in awareness of FMCG products, frequent launches of new products and effective advertisement of the FMCG brands are the other factors that boost the growth of the global FMCG market.
The global FMCG market size was valued at US$10b in 2017 and is projected to reach US$15b by 2025. In emerging markets, job growth is across the board in all areas.
CCI’s value – we heavily recruit in this sector across Asia and Oceania with our contacts reaching the major players including Europe & North America.
The US$5t global industry food and agribusiness sector, so vital for feeding the world, continues to grow, fuelled by innovation to meet increasing demand worldwide.

Oil & Gas / Mining
O&G (grew 9%) & Mining (grew 6%) continues to be at the forefront in modernising. SaaS, IT and operational roles are always needed in many parts of the world. In a number of areas candidates easily flow between the two sectors and across countries.
CCI’s value – having spent a number of years specialising in these sectors our relationships are relevant in the ‘right’ companies across a number of countries.
With Covid-19, supply chain has moved from being ‘behind the scenes’ to being a prime driver. As volumes become more variable, supply chains will become more adaptive, large suppliers and logistics operators must prepare for major catastrophic events not only weather events (fires, flood, tsunami) but lethal pandemic outbreaks, strikes, social unrest and associated disruptions.

With Covid-19 most countries have a desire to become more self-sufficient in supplying goods and services that are less susceptible to global shocks. To do this it requires boosting the country’s manufacturing capability and one way to do so would be by embracing new manufacturing methods using automation.
CCI’s value – We have a long history of assisting business in their path to automation. From Analysts through to Project Directors for the suppliers, the consultants and the end customer.
