Testimonials

"As a candidate I can't rate Amanda and De Lacy highly enough. I have dealt with many recruitment agencies (as client and candidate) over the years, and De Lacy is a totally different experience - you really feel that Amanda is interested in you; you're not just fodder for her clients.
Over the 4 years I have been in touch with De Lacy I have only been contacted by them about 3 jobs - the first led an interview but not an appointment, the second the role was withdrawn due to organisational changes and the third I got the job! In fact, I really wasn't looking for a new job when Amanda emailed and called me, but she managed to sell my current role to me and I am so glad she did!
That's the difference with De Lacy and other agencies - De Lacy maintain long term relationships with potential candidates as well as clients, so we listen when they call, which means that they can access professionals who aren't necessarily looking for a change.
Not only that, but De Lacy target their roles very closely, so as a candidate you know they will only get in touch if they think a job is perfect for you, culturally as well as professionally. That is obviously also a great plus for their clients.
I thoroughly recommend Amanda and De Lacy to recruiters and candidates alike - the service she provides is exceptional and really can't be compared to just about any other "normal" executive recruitment agency."

Survey explodes myths about careers in agriculture

Survey explodes myths about careers in agriculture

The 2015 pay and careers survey explodes many of the myths about working in the agricultural sector.

The gulf between the public's perception of working in agriculture and the reality is huge.

One recent piece of research suggested as few as 4% of young people were considering a job in food and farming, with the widely held view that jobs are boring, repetitive and low-paid - and possibly even just for those with few other options.

But an exclusive survey of 1,300 Farmers Weekly readers, carried out in association with recruitment consultancy De Lacy Executive, has revealed the opposite is true.
