"The Best in Ireland"


Brightwater Recruitment Consultancy was set up in 1998 under the tag line: "The Best in Ireland". Our standards have meant phenomenal growth, but more important than that, is respect. Brightwater has helped change the face of recruitment in Ireland.

The company opened with a clear business plan: To establish a Recruitment Consultancy that would be respected, liked and recognised as truly professional by their customers and peers. The Directors realised that to establish this brand they must first attract the right staff, then train,develop and invest in them so they could provide the best service to their clients.

" We consistently and conscientiously strive to make our customers the focus of our attention, to understand their needs, to meet their expectations and to provide them with full value through professional, personal service. "
David Bloch, CEO

Brightwater Recruitment Consultancy opened in Dublin in September 1998. The company was established because a genuine gap was identified in the still fledgling, agency-led Irish recruitment market for a true recruitment consultancy. Brightwater's professional, specialist approach was enthusiastically embraced and within 5 years the company became one of the 5 biggest employment consultancies in Ireland.

Brightwater's history is outlined below, but what hasn't changed is the company's absolute commitment to being the very best,professional recruitment consultancy in Ireland.
