About us

Since opening our first Ireland office in Dublin in 1996, we’ve put people at the heart of what we do. We’ve invested in lifelong partnerships among Irish businesses and individuals that empower you to succeed.

First establishing our expertise in accountancy and finance and construction, we’ve since become specialists in tech, engineering, life sciences, HR, procurement, business support, legal, social care and marketing. And with offices in prime locations across Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway, we combine our nationwide coverage with local market expertise.

Our data-driven sector knowledge and extensive networks are backed by a drive to innovate for your specific needs, and we’re constantly developing our talent solutions. Our evolving services not only include permanent and temporary recruitment, but a whole suite of end-to-end recruitment strategies. Whether you’re looking for an inspirational leader or an agile contingent workforce strategy, we bring the people, insights and technology needed to navigate a complex talent landscape and secure future success.

It’s not just our customers we serve though. As the world’s largest specialist recruiter, we’re in a unique position to enable real change: both on a local and national scale. We’re deeply embedded in the communities we live and work in, and our commitment to driving diversity, equity and inclusion can be seen through our thriving partnerships. Working closely alongside Paralympics Ireland, Job Care, the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association, and many more organisations, we’re sharing our skills and knowledge to build opportunities and enhance lives – for lifetimes to come.
