Strategy role in an atypical sector?

 
#1 Strategy role in an atypical sector?

I was recently emailed about a role for a group strategy analyst in a company which is the parent company for a number of recruitment consultancies.

The role sounds great but i'm concerned that given my background has been in FMCG (also strategy) that in future I may have difficulty securing a new role because i'd have different sector experience, in particular, sector experience which is outwith the 'normal' ones.

Is the function as important/less important/more important than the sector in which it is situated? As I say the role sounds good but I'm not sure whether holding off for an internal strat role in an FMCG would be a significantly better option or not.

Would appreciate any insight!

Take the job while you are waiting on something more aligned to your core expertise? And the role obviously appeals to you. Just because it is for a group of recruitment firms this won't mean your experience is less valuable - you'll be surprised just how similar the operations of a recruitment firm are to what you have been doing anyway.

By my reckoning you could give yourself up to a year off your core track and still get back without difficulty, time enough to ride out the recession.
