​I chose to work with Propel on our VP of Business Development for EMEA position as we needed an expert in the industry to fill what was a very tough role. The team at Propel has worked hard and has provided me with a shortlist of candidates who were varied in terms of background, experience, and location. After reviewing the shortlist, the process was very easy and facilitated by the team, who helped with the scheduling of the interviews and the arrangement of a location, being us based in the US and not having an office in EMEA yet at that time. With a very accurate analysis of the candidates’ current situations, we were able to hire the perfect candidate for the role. We would definitely recommend Propel to any company who wants to make a fast appointment and wants to be sure to make the right choice.

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.
