Setting the standard in recruitment for First 4 Farming


First 4 Farming provides expert and technical solutions, creating a transparent, open farmer and consumer centric integrated agri-food supply chain.

The company was founded in the UK in 2000, and has since expanded into four continents with 11 international offices. Given the niche nature of the business,First 4 Farming often struggled with the recruitment of technical roles and therefore engaged with Robert Walters from the on-set when looking for a Technical Project Manager to help on a number of large and key projects.


Our specialist Robert Walters consultant recommended an online advertising solution as part of the sourcing strategy for this role, ensuring that both active and passive candidate pools were covered in the search. This method attracted a high calibre of professionals that First 4 Farming previously have not seen through their internal recruitment attempts. First 4 Farming agreed to go to market using the recommended advertising solution strategy and partnered with Robert Walters on an exclusive basis for their recruitment needs.

They listened to our needs and managed to balance accommodating what we wanted with their obvious experience in the recruitment process. We'd definitely us Robert Walters again."
