We think differently about recruitment

We’re not interested in providing a generic, 360 recruitment process; as an international recruitment consultancy, every service we offer is something at which we excel. This means understanding exactly what hiring managers are looking for from candidates, and then turning to our search experts to research where to find talent that fits these needs. It means understanding what each candidate is looking for through detailed screening, so we can secure the right talent for each client. It means working with elite recruiters who are specialists in their fields, so every step of the process is taken care of by an expert.

Whether you are looking for an agency solution, an outsourced support team or a senior appointment, our flexible and specialist recruiters will be there to provide you with exactly what you need. All of our talent solutions are built on what we excel at, so you’ll never be getting anything other than the best services.

We do things differently to deliver better experiences for candidates, hiring managers, interviewers and recruiters. We reduce time to hire, improve the quality of candidates, provide a high candidate shortlist-to-interview ratio, and fill more roles.

Our services

Our story

Our story started in 1998 in Dublin, Ireland, but we really got going as international recruitment consultants just five years ago. We’ve always aimed to use technology to improve recruitment, which tended to be high-effort and low-quality. Five years ago we found the final piece of our puzzle in the form of an automatic call-scheduling tool, and since then we’ve become the future of recruitment agencies.

We’ve gone from 12 people in a room in Dublin to being an international recruitment agency with offices in seven countries and a team living in 12 different countries. As a leading recruitment consultancy in Dublin and Ireland, we make permanent, contract and temporary/contingent placements in IT, Finance, Pharma across the many countries we are in and more.
