De Lacy Executive - the Professional's Recruitment Consultancy for Agriculture and Food

De Lacy Executive offers professional recruitment services in the business sectors of Agriculture and Horticulture, Food, Environment and Equestrian/Pet to employer clients and job seekers.

Whilst De Lacy Executive has its roots firmly in the UK, it is part of the international Farms.com Group based in Canada, enabling it to operate effectively in the global agriculture and food markets.

Founded in 2000 De Lacy is a team of nine professional consultants committed to exceeding the expectations of those with whom we work. Our agribusiness and food processing credentials are second to none. Largely agricultural and food graduates, eight of us are the offspring of farmers and six of us have worked in the agricultural supply trade as well as in farming and food.

Our experience and competencies extend from graduate trainee to managing director, and from sales, through technical, marketing, operations and production to R & D managers.

Our employer clients are nationwide throughout the UK and increasingly are spread across Europe and Africa and further afield. They range from SMEs, regional and national companies to Global Corporations. We have been awarded Preferred Supplier List status by a number of significant companies.

Working both nationally and internationally our specialism extends from the agricultural supply trade (arable, livestock, machinery and equipment etc) to farm management, primary food and fresh produce, horticulture, equestrian, environment, renewable energy and a diverse range of Rural and Land-based Business vacancies.

We act in a consultancy capacity, adding value by devising a recruitment plan relevant to each client and each vacancy and then proactively searching and selecting the best candidates for clients whilst offering career advice to candidates.

De Lacy Executive is approved as a member of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, which oversees the UK's recruitment industry (REC Membership Number: 00082047) and is registered with the UK Information Commissioner's Office under the Data Protection Act.

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."
