We believe there’s a better way to recruit. A faster, easier way to connect clients with exceptional talent. 


The Agora team has decades of experience building networks and identifying brilliant candidates. We’ve successfully placed hundreds of people with established brands, startups and investment firms, both in London and overseas.

We’re experts in our field, but that’s not the only reason why clients like Dr Martens, Marks & Spencer and WIT Fitness love working with us. Successful recruitment is all about the people and that goes for the recruitment process too. You won’t find pushy salespeople or patchy communication at Agora – we’re a friendly, flexible team who work hard to find the right fit for every role.

How do we do that?

To start with, we learn who you are as a business and what you like – and don’t – before hitting the market. And, if you aren’t 100% on the brief, our senior team is here to help you nail down what it is you’re looking for.

We’re big believers in transparency, so we’ll keep you in the loop from start to finish and provide you with any support you need along the way.
