The appointment forms part of Lidl UK’s ongoing commitment to investing in attracting and retaining talent as the company continues to grow.
Laura Norman, Lidl’s retail recruitment and employer brand manager, said: “As a Times Top 100 employer, we needed a partner that understood our brand and how we can communicate across the entire employee lifecycle. Synergy showed a brilliant understanding of this and demonstrated superb creativity and expertise in showing us what it takes to create a best in class employer brand.”
