Prior to communicating with Gavin, I had very little experience with Recruitment Agencies before. Most agencies I dealt with were not very informative or efficient, however, Gavin really is an exception. Within days of submitting my application for a role, Gavin contacted me to discuss the role. He kept in regular contact with me throughout the whole process to constantly keep me updated. Whenever I had any queries, Gavin was very efficient in responding so I never felt unsure. He also contacted me before my interview for preparation and contacted me straight away afterwards to know how it went.
Now having secured the position, I couldn't recommend Gavin highly enough. He is extremely polite, professional, efficient and informative. I told Gavin exactly what I was looking for and he truly delivered. Thank you Gavin once again!!

"Thank you so much Susan for all your great help, fantastic support and encouragement through the process of getting my new job. You are a dream recruiter and I am most grateful to you. I felt like you really "saw me" and fought for what we both saw was a perfect match, when my CV is so unique."
"Hi Ken, Over the past couple of months I struggled to find a role that really suited me, in the industry I ultimately wanted to be in. I signed myself up to numerous different recruiters and was actively searching for the perfect role day in day out myself. As you are probably aware it can be a tough and often, quite daunting task. I was meeting with recruiters, applying for jobs all while trying to continue with the job I am currently in. This was until I met Lauren Hall from your recruitment agency.
I have attended a lot of recruitment meetings over the past couple of months with [names of recruitment agencies have been removed], the list is endless really. Lauren is not only the BEST recruiter I have ever come across but she genuinely cares about the people she is trying to help seek new roles for. She has an empathetic, passionate, joyful nature that really was such a pleasure and breath of fresh air to work with. Judging by her consistent positive attitude she is very happy in her workplace and comfortable within her role. She met me to discuss exactly what I wanted (and was available to do so again whenever I wished). She was at the end of any phone call day or night (and there have been plenty). She is in constant contact to ensure everything is ok and my search is going well. She even suggested we meet for a drink after I got my role. Her customer service skills are next to none and she is definitely someone you do not want leaving your company.
In the end, I was offered 3 roles and I chopped and changed a couple of times trying to decide which was the one for me. While I know recruiters get commission for getting people jobs, I rang Lauren asking her for her advice because I knew she would be honest with me. I am looking forward to starting my new role on the 28th of May and I most definitely have Lauren to be very grateful for.
There is no question in my mind that she is the greatest asset to your company and would be to any other company too. Ensure she doesn't leave, treat her well. Enjoy the rest of your week.

"Prior to working with Gavin I had no experience in recruitment agencies, nor had I ever considered working with one. Now, however, I can't recommend them enough.
I was living in the States with plans to move back to Ireland in the pipeline. Gavin found me via LinkedIn and approached me with my dream job. He was extremely helpful every step of the way. He not only enabled me to fully understand the role on offer, but also the needs and the wants of the company itself. He knew he wouldn't be wasting either of our times by putting me forward.
As the interview process was broken up into 3 stages, and actually got delayed longer than expected, Gavin communicated with me on a regular basis keeping me as in the loop as possible. When I got to the final round back in Dublin, I met with Gavin to go over my presentation and to prepare for my interview. He was vital to my success. He gave me so many great insights and tips to ensure success.
Even after I secured the role, Gavin still kept in contact to see how things were going, which says a lot about how invested in his work and the clients he is.
I can't recommend Gavin enough and have already been referring friends to him. If you're looking for a change, Gavin is definitely the man to see."
