Case Study: Synomics


Synomics were a global Agri- Tech company developing a multiomic analysis platform for use in selective breeding of crops and livestock.


With a small company spread across Oxford, Wisconsin and Copenhagen, Synomics needed a joined-up solution to building teams in all locations.

Coupled with that, the skills required were extremely niche, with agri-tech experience essential.


Singular assigned a dedicated team to the Synomics account who were able to get to know the company well, sell them effectively and conduct forensic, proactive search campaigns to deliver exceptional talent.

With fortnightly progress calls focused on detailed feedback, we were quickly able to zero in on the right people, co-ordinate interview panels across several locations and deliver on time with accuracy.

“Working with Singular has been a real pleasure. They successfully recruited high-quality senior candidates for us who have all turned out to be real stars. The process was straightforward, fast and they worked hard to reduce the burden on a busy team, making it the most efficient recruitment we’ve ever done. All of the candidates have shared with us their appreciation of the clear communication and feedback they received.”

Gareth Llewellyn, Chief Operating Officer

“During the first phase of recruitment, Singular took the time to understand the uniqueness of our business, which made working with them again for our second phase of growth a simple decision. The specific requirements of our roles created niche search parameters – despite this, the team at Singular were able to provide good lists of high-quality candidate and those who ultimately came on board have proven crucial to our business growth.”
