The AgriTech Recruitment Company – Unearthing the Talent to Feed the World

Whether you’re an innovator in the AgriFood space seeking specialists to join your organisation (or simply in need of some advice on where to start!), or an individual looking for your next career move in this arena, we’d love to hear from you.

As the AgriFood space becomes increasingly technology driven, organisations in this sector are suddenly faced with the challenge of recruiting specialists from other domains to drive their visions forward – Software Developers, Data Magicians, AI Specialists, Engineers, Scientists, Commercial staff with specific knowledge areas and more…

Combining a background in tech recruitment with in-depth knowledge of the Agri world, we specialise in supporting such companies when it comes to finding & attracting these hard-to-find technical and commercial professionals, permanent and contract.

JP Trett

JP Trett is a specialist recruitment and consultancy business in the agricultural and Agri tech sectors. Our focus is on developing professional careers for ambitious individuals with a passion for current and future technologies, with a level of adaptability which allows us to remain ahead of the curve in engaging with clients at the forefront of this niche and expanding sector. From graduate roles up to Boardroom appointments, we have successfully added value and know-how to many blue-chip clients within these specialist sectors, based on meaningful industry expertise gained from career experience in this field. Our aim is always to support the growth of agricultural technology as many businesses embrace new means to present and analyse data for their customers. We achieve this by extensive networking, close links with Government Departments, advisory, technical and commercial organisations, attendance at key industry events, conferences and exhibitions to ensure our strategic industry overview remains complete at all times. We have many long-term clients, new business is in many cases the result of a high-level recommendation, and we continually attract bright and switched-on candidates whose career progression is entrusted to us. Business consultancy is our latest offering to complement our considerable recruitment expertise.


By leaving the EU, the Government’s impacts on the UK’S high tech businesses in terms of policy, strategy and structural issues at both a national and, importantly, a regional level inevitably will increase. The AGRI TECH sector is no exception to this and it therefore has the platform and opportunity from which to exploit its position for genuine added value.

TWENTYFIFTEEN recognises the worth to its clients of building positive relationships with relevant parts of Government which in turn leads to enhancing brand and corporate reputational value. Critically TWENTYFIFTEEN understands Government and how, when and why to engage with it for long term competitive advantage. In particular, we appreciate the opportunities presented by the Government – Academia – Business triangle in terms of facilitating innovation and process improvements. These are important and relevant to sectors such as AGRI TECH.

New regional structures across England and the Devolved Administrations also present opportunities for informed corporates to engage and help shape and then exploit initiatives which can therefore add competitiveness and differentiation. TWENTYFIFTEEN’s experience in navigating these spaces can positively contribute to its clients strategy and decision making.

Finally, in assessing how to assist its clients, TWENTYFIFTEEN’s deep experience with both U.K. companies and inward investors and their differing approaches, backgrounds and cultures, ensures that it can successfully tailor its offering and service accordingly.
