Agricultural Appointments

For over 35 years Agricultural Appointments has helped businesses of all types meet the hardest challenge: recruiting the right people in the agricultural, food and wine industries. Our years of experience helps us quickly understand you and your business, and extract what we need to build a deep profile of the target candidate. From farm managers to food technologists, winemakers to research agronomists and sales managers to CEOs, we recruit for roles from paddock to plate, right across the food supply chain.

From our network in the industry to our network on social media to our knowledge of how to assess, select and manage, we know people: how to find them and make sure they’re right for your role and culture.

  • Each member of our team holds qualifications in agricultural science or a related discipline and/or has deep knowledge and experience in the sector that they service.
  • Each member of the team has worked client-side across the supply chain.
  • We are active members of industry organisations and regularly attend agricultural events, conferences, exhibitions, meetings as well as agricultural science student career days to engage with talent and pass on knowledge and mentor students into their career choice.

We’re from the industry and we’re immersed in the industry. It’s why we can confidently say: We find people others can’t.
