Consultants at Propella gain a very thorough understanding of the mandates prior to commencing their assignments. They also have a great sense of our company’s culture and are hence very capable in providing us with their advice which we take seriously in the decision making process. Most of our recent senior management hiring has been done through Propella Consulting Group. We would definitely recommend Propella to other FMCG companies for their hiring needs.

Director - Society Tea

I was approached with an opportunity by Propella at a time when I wasn’t actively looking for a change. I did not know much about the organisation too. However, looking back, it was a good decision made. Manish with his understanding of the organisation and why I should consider the position and what will make me successful in getting that job was clearly made me consider it and also get the job eventually. His team was great with coordinating between me and the company and always being on top of things was very helpful too.

Shweta Kadkare

Manager HR – Future Group

Manish Ballani from Propella had approached us a time when we were looking to hire some extremely important senior management roles at NBSS which is a JV between Nilkamal, a large Indian organisation and BITO its German counterpart. It can get slightly tricky to understand the cultural perspective whilst providing the right candidates. We were unable to identify the appropriate candidate for a while until Propella came into the picture and made it quite easy for us. Their processes are extremely thorough and not often are you put in a dilemma during the decision making process wherein you like more than 1 candidate and find it difficult to make a decision. It is a good position to be in as an employer. I wish Propella all the best.

Head AFR Operations - DHL Logistics

Propella’s USP is the quality of consultants that it recruits and the way they constantly skill them to understand businesses, manage stakeholders and approach headhunting as a process.

They go out of their way to partner with their clients and make every penny spent on recruiting through Propella, worth the same by mapping the business needs to the candidate profiles and advising clients on the best fit in terms of the skills available. I worked with them to source against some niche skills and it was a pleasure to see the consultants taking an effort to understand businesses and source sharp profiles matching the needs.
It is a pleasure working with this dynamic and vibrant team.
