Agricultural recruitment specialist, Cultura Connect, has today announced the acquisition of Agrecruiting, a specialist forestry recruitment company.

Cultura Connect is well-established in the agricultural sector and the acquisition will see the business grow and utilise its team and knowledge in the forestry sector.

Speaking about the acquisition, Hugh Pocock, director of Cultura Connect said:

"This is an exciting opportunity for Cultura Connect that will see us grow into a new, but very much complementary industry. The Cultura Connect team is built around knowledge and passion for agriculture and all things rural, and we see the forestry sector as an exciting extension of this, and one where we can apply the same principles of building partnerships with clients and candidates to place the best people in the right roles, to help the industry to thrive."

Agrecruiting founder, Katy Davies, started the business in 2019, creating the first specialist recruitment consultancy in the forestry sector. The business has grown from strength to strength, creating long-term partnerships with its clients.

"After making the tough decision to move away from recruitment for personal reasons, I am confident that the team at Cultura Connect will be able to further nurture and develop the business and work closely with the industry to help it grow," Katy said. "The forestry recruitment sector has provided me with incredible opportunities to learn, and I'm grateful for the professional relationships I have built," Katy concludes.

Cultura Connect Forestry will be headed up by director, Tom Marsh. "This is a fantastic opportunity to grow into an exciting area of land-based recruitment. Forestry and agroforestry are rapidly evolving areas and we're looking forward to working with businesses in the sector to help them flourish through the right recruitment," explained Tom.
