What we do

At Shepper, our vision is for local communities to be an integral part of the workforce of global businesses. To make this vision a reality, we are building a network of people who will always be less than five minutes away from wherever clients need us.

We work with businesses across multiple sectors and by combining our app and platform with our network of trusted local ‘Shepherds’, we help our clients check everything from their products and promotions in stores, to bus stops and empty properties. 

Our story

We were founded in 2016 by serial entrepreneurs Carl August Ameln, Ben Prouty and Jan Vanhoutte and, since then, our team has grown to 30 and our network of Shepherds to over 30,000!

To date we have completed around 100k checks for our customers and raised over £10 million in funding, most recently securing £6 million from a group of investors including the UK’s largest insurance company Aviva. We’re now in scaling mode, 2020 saw us welcome many new faces to the business including a new CEO Lindsay Forster, who will lead our business into its next phase of success. 

We’re excited for the future of Shepper, and see our company as a challenging, supportive and fun place to work. We’re looking for talented, driven, caring people who want to join us on our journey and support us in achieving some ambitious growth targets!
