Current Vacancies



We have worked with Neil Oviatt on several challenging director and senior executive level searches on a contingency and retained basis over many years. He has an excellent network of senior management in the global retail sector and has the ability to ensure that candidates introduced are fully aware of the nuances and the demanding nature of the positions in the SPAR International business. Our requirements are quite unusual due to the truly global nature of the business and the pool of candidates often very small that are able and willing to fulfil these types of role, Neil has always succeeded in sourcing these few.Neil is professional, resilient and reliable. Dr. Gordon R. Campbell Managing Director SPAR International

“We have had the pleasure to work with Neil on many assignments  for many Amwal portfolio companies within several industries. Neil was very resourceful in sourcing us many C level positions as well as some mid-senior managers whether it was Finance, HR, IT or other operational areas within our organizations.  Our needs can range from very strategic functional C roles to operational managers with hands on experience and Neil was able to deliver on both side of this relatively wide spectrum.  Considering our presence in the gulf, Neil was also able to source culturally savvy candidates with the right linguistic skills” Fadi Arbid – CEO  Amwal Al Khaleej

Neil has a knack for matching the right person with the right company and culture. Neil’s networking skills keep him connected globally and he can be counted on to make placements all over the world. His expertise and understanding of the retail space make him a valued asset when hired to source for retail roles in all the functional specialty areas (Operations, HR, Marketing, etc.). I look forward to a continued partnership with Neil VP Human Resources, Consumer Direct (Global Retail) at adidas group

It is an absolute pleasure doing business with Neil! He has a great network, is very responsive, flexible and ‘gets’ client needs. Working with him feels like working with an immediate extension of the recruiting department. EVP Global Human Resources at Belstaff
