Hectare: Recruiting a herd

14 Dec 2023

“The process for the roles were seamless, I couldn’t recommend Propel enough…”


Propel were instructed to work on a project with Series A agritech scale up, Hectare to bolster their Product and Engineering team.

Hectare are impressive in many ways; their products cater an underserved but really import audience of farmers and landowners, digitally transforming every aspect of their supply chain to support sustainable growth. They are also a really lovely group of people that are clearly passionate about what they do, and were such a pleasure to get to know over the process and a lunch at The Groucho!

Propel took on the brief for:

– Senior Frontend Engineer,
– Senior Backend Engineer,
– Senior Developer in Test,
– Senior Scrum Master,
– Senior Data Specialist,
– Senior Product Manager.


As a team we grouped together to complete the project within a 2 month time period.
Here’s what Sian, VP People said:

“We engaged Propel on a project to bolster our Product & Engineering teams and they absolutely delivered! From the offset, a lot of time was taken to really understand our business needs and overall goals as well as our culture and current talent landscape which was critical. We had a specialist recruiter for each of our roles (from Scrum Master to Product Manager to Engineers) which worked really well as they could guide us through the experience we may need and highlight gaps and other areas for consideration that were super-helpful!

The process for all roles was seamless. The team set up Slack groups to keep us updated on their progress alongside using our ATS, Workable and sharing in-depth notes and insights on every candidate. The Propel team helped us negotiate offers for the successful candidate, clearly having both ours and the candidate’s interests top of mind (as opposed to a lot of other agencies that just want to make a placement) They supported us in obtaining references and were there right up until the onboarding stage.

I couldn’t recommend Propel enough and want to thank the amazing team we worked with for their hard work, speedy delivery and brilliant candidates”
