Propel have been our preferred supplier of recruitment services since 2014, and continue to be so today. During a period of significant growth, Iponweb set a very high bar in regards to the people we hire and Propel have helped us attract best in class talent in a very competitive market. 

- Scott Neville  |  Chief Marketing Officer  IPONWEB

We have found a highly reliable recruitment partner in Propel. They have helped us establish and grow our Sales presence during our expansion to the UK – placing a number of high calibre hires, including the UK Sales Manager – and they are now working on further roles across multiple departments, following this success. The team have scheduled a number of very effective interview days, run from their offices, and have always been extremely accommodating to our needs, as well as showing an astute knowledge of our company, its principles and its vision.

- Benjamin Brousse | Sales Director Sparklane​

Propel have been a true recruitment partner to us over the years and have helped with hires across all levels of our business. We’ve worked with them on a retained, contingency and contract basis, and they have always understood what we are looking for. Their knowledge of the industry and their network are unrivalled, and this has helped us fill a variety of challenging roles.
