What Sets Us Apart?

Brightwater are the best in Ireland!

  • In 2008, Brightwater were voted in the Top 10 Best Companies to Work for in Ireland. This was our first year to be included in the category 100-250 employees.
  • In 2007, Brightwater were delighted to be The Best Company (50-100 employees) to Work for in Ireland. These awards are particularly special as the organisations who enter are evaluated using an employee survey and questionnaire. Brightwater, along with one other, were the only two companies to be voted in the Top Ten Companies to Work for in Ireland for three years in a row.
  • In 2006, Brightwater were once again the only recruitment company to be placed among the Top 10 Best Companies to Work for in Ireland. We also won the "Credibility Award", an award we as a recruitment company are particularly proud of. We have also been placed yet again into the European Top 100 Companies to Work For.
  • In 2005, Brightwater were voted by their own staff to be the Best Company (50-100 Employees) to Work for in Ireland. We were also voted into the Top 100 companies to Work for in Europe. Within the Industry, Brightwater were the only recruitment company in Ireland to have received such accolades (in 2004, 2005, and 2006).

Brightwater believe that it is a balanced circle that has provided happiness and success for so many people. If management treat the staff well, the staff will treat the customers well, who in turn will treat the company well. Everyone wins!

Many of the companies that have won these special awards have been very 'nice companies'. Brightwater are a nice company too, but that doesn't mean we are soft. We work in a tough, competitive, aggressive field, and the staff we employ are dynamic and competitive individuals. They want to be given direction, opportunity, targets and pressure. They also want to be given respect, fairness and consideration.

Set up in 1998, Brightwater has enjoyed double digit growth every year since inception. Our sales in 2008 were €17 million and estimated sales for 2009 are €8 million. Achieving these sales targets and special awards has given us even more pride and respect in our company.

To achieve the above, Brightwater had to first attract and retain the right staff, from top to bottom. Receptionist to Managing Director must all share positive and pro-active personalities, and have a basic liking of people. The Consultants (the engines of the company) must also possess a very broad range of attributes. See our skills needed section.
