We specialise in recruitment for the amenity/edible horticulture, landscape, garden retail, and all land management sectors
Working in the fields and gardens around the Republic of Ireland and the UK is always hard work, but your recruiting should not be. You need a focal point for all of the talent in horticulture to congregate and experts to help grow you and your business through organic talent and excellent work. Allow us to introduce HortiRecruit.
Who we are
Combined, we have the recruitment expertise and horticultural knowledge to grow your business into a strong and robust company. We are a specialised agency who work exclusively with horticultural businesses and their recruitment needs. Couple this with our reach within the industry, and you will have access to the best talent in the marketplace.
How It Works
Our recruiters have come from agency backgrounds but we wanted to step away from the traditional model. That model is inefficient and can lead to recruiters being overstressed to deliver a candidate at any cost
We only take on roles we know we can deliver on. We don’t work on dozens of jobs at the same time so we are always focused on quality over quantity. Our first contact will be to discuss your needs and to begin to profile your ideal candidate.
If we feel confident that we can deliver the talent you are looking for we will work with you on the fulfillment success process, terms, and pricing.
What Makes Us Different?
We could give you the usual spiel about how we’re unique but let’s face it, no one wants to read those sale pages anymore.
So let us tell you what you want to know;
- We only recruit in horticulture or land management
- We are a dynamic and experienced team across all forms of recruitment
- We care about the industry and want it to grow by connecting the right employer with the best fitting candidate
We could go into the stats about our reach into the horticulture industry across Ireland, UK, and Europe, about how we reach 1000’s of people with each post who are invested and engaged with our message. Or we could talk about how we are at all of the leading trade and education events in the industry and are helping to lead them into a more modern age of job presentation and application process.

Why You Should Care
The horticulture industry is what we term ‘a candidate poor market’ i.e there are more jobs than there are qualified and experienced candidates. This leads to a massive strain on your business whether it’s maintaining service levels or looking to expand.
You may have the best job offer or be the best company to work for but do the right people know about your opportunities? We often talk about employer branding and company ethos in our blog. As a HortiRecruit client, this is something that you really need to be conscious of as more and more candidates are reviewing and researching your reputation as an employer directly with their peers via social media channels before ever applying for a role. If you’re suffering from a lack of applications in the first place, you may have an employer branding issue. Let us help you.
We talk to candidates every day and we get our finger on the pulse of the market in real-time. As the saying goes, one bad experience is an anecdote, two is a concern, and three is a pattern. If we are working with you, we can provide feedback on what candidates are saying about your company.
Our recruiters are experienced interviewers and would typically conduct 3/5 interviews a week. We know what to look out for with regard to excellent candidates. After you do so many interviews, you develop a finely tuned process to identify the best candidate for each role. Utilise our expertise for your hiring processes.
- Discuss what form of interviews would best suit you and your business
- Consultation meeting on what you are looking for in your ideal candidate
