It is with great pleasure to say Martin provided an excellent service in assisting me throughout the recruitment process. He was easily contactable, contained a wealth of knowledge and was very easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend Martin if you’re seeking further career development.

Paul Mc Donagh,

Full Stack Web Developer at Lifewave, Inc

 

Would highly recommend Martin. He cold called me six months previous, I happily answered a bunch of questions which he obviously carefully noted. Six months later he called again with a great opportunity matching my skillset. We applied for the position; I was successful. His guidance throughout the process was excellent. Martin was detailed, informative, helpful and professional at every level. It was a pleasure to work with Martin.

Read Claire Brady Testimonials

Before I relocated from overseas, I was lucky enough to get in contact with Claire. After returning home, Claire assisted and guided me through the recruitment processes in Galway. Her in-depth knowledge of the local job market was invaluable, as were her interviewing skills & CV suggestions. I cannot recommend Claire highly enough

Paraic Connell

Software Support Engineer at Hewlett Packard Enterprise

 

When I reached out to CPL and started working with Claire I found her supportive and extremely professional at all times. She took the time to understand the kind of role I was looking for and the type of company that I wanted to work for. I felt that Claire provided me with the necessary guidance that is needed when looking for a new role. I would highly recommend Claire for anyone who is looking for a new role or just career advice.

John O’Neill

IT Support Services Manager EMEA & APAC at HID Global

 

Claire is an extremely professional and supportive recruitment specialist with excellent knowlegde in the IT sector. She went above and beyond in helping me not only find the position that was right for me but also in preparing me for interviews and the recruitment process. I recommend Claire wholeheartedly for anyone who is seeking help finding their own career path.

Joseph Harte

Engineer at B&B Electronics

Claire worked as my recruitment consultant for almost a year, and it would be safe to say I proved to be quite the tricky case for her. During a time that I was searching for a change in my career, we went through multiple interviews and jobs together until she guided me to the excellent role I now have. Claire proved to be efficient and organised, always on point for advice and reminders, unerring in her business responsibilities and not afraid to think outside the box when it was required (which was certainly true in my case!). It would be impossible for me to recommend her highly enough given how thankful I am to her for all the extraordinary support, guidance, patience and in the end friendship during a difficult time that she provided.

Donagh Twomey

RET Engineer/Developer at Hewlett Packard Enterprise

 

I signed up at a targeted recruitment event for a new company in Galway. The event was facilitated by CPL and Claire followed up with me afterwards. I had heard her spoken of positively in the past which set me at ease. Right from this initial contact I had the impression that Claire was genuinely on my side and really representing my interests in the recruitment process. This was a surprising breath of fresh air. Claire took the time to learn my requirements and expectations in a new role and really figure out the right fit. She was always professional and courteous and feedback and communication were timely and comprehensive. I would certainly be reaching out to Claire again should ever the need arise

Read Libby Kelly Testimonials

“I worked very closely with Libby when I was the acting PMO team lead in BT Ireland. Libby was providing BT with PMO project manager and demand admin resources through CPL PMO. My experience was an exceptionally good one to say the least. All requests from me were handled very smoothly and without any issues or delays. Libby was always in touch and very tenacious. She handled our requests for resourcing and also looked after all resource performance through feedback from myself. This made my job much easier as I could focus on my day job and know that my PMO resources were being very well managed as well. I have since moved to another company but if i am ever asked to recommend or even hire a partner for project management and PMO resources I would go straight to Libby.”
