"De Lacy were very efficient and supportive throughout the whole recruitment
process. Their knowledge of the industry is remarkable and they found me
the best candidate for my Farm Manager position. They were able to supply a
very strong shortlist and I would recommend De Lacy to anybody looking for
an agricultural employee."

"Amanda understands the industry and the type of role we recruit for. She's able to advise us on the market if needed and uses her network to help us further. We found Amanda to be knowledgeable, approachable and efficient. She selects the candidates to send us very carefully instead of bombarding us with CVs.

Amanda successfully helped us recruit for Area Sales Managers and Field Service Specialists where we'd been struggling for months.

Moreover we find her a pleasure to work with"
