Testimonials

 

My consultant was a pleasure to deal with. She was friendly and easy to talk to. Seeking a new job is never easy, however my consultant made the process simple and it was extremely quick and effortless.
Ray Whelan, Candidate,

My consultant had a very strong work ethic, engages well with people and always remains professional. The consultant delivered consistently and was open and honest. These attributes are invaluable.

John Murphy, Candidate,
My experiences over the past few months with employment agencies have been mixed to say the least. My experiences with Brightwater have been by far the most pleasing. You have been professional, courteous, open and honest and I always felt that you were looking after my best interests in finding me a role that matched both me and the employer. You have always fought my corner and kept me informed, whether there was good, bad or even no news. You are a credit to Brightwater and also to yourself and I could not recommend you or Brightwater highly enough.
Ken Fabian, Candidate,

Once again, thank you very much for all your help to date. Your support has been excellent.

David Lewis, Candidate,
Many thanks for letting me know about both job opportunities. I have found Brightwater to be the best consultancy (with the best manners) in Dublin.
Richard Luptovsky, Candidate,
Brightwater have provided a very good quality and timely recruitment service to us. We are a UK based Company with limited knowledge of the Irish Market. Brightwater have advised on the best routes to candidates and provided us with an excellent short list of candidates that closely matched our requirements.
Heather Baker, HR Director, SCA Hygiene
Thank you for all your hard work and should circumstances change over the next week I will most definitely get back in touch. It’s been a pleasure - you have been the most pro-active and professional recruitment consultant I have worked with. Again - thank you.
Pete Merrick , Candidate,
I would like to thank you for the excellent service that you have provided thus far and even the short remarks re: congratulations on the interview, it adds a personal caring touch and strengthens my believe in your capabilities to treat me as ‘part of the family’ and seeks positions for my best welfare. In the event that I will be seeking employment in the future, I would definitely wish for you to represent my interests again.
Deborah Gorman, Candidate,
Just to let you know that I was offered a contract today from Orix which I was delighted to accept. The details will be trashed out in the next few days. Thank you so much for all your help and advice during my job search. Recruitment agents tend to get a bad rep at times but your service was an absolute joy and I really felt looked after whilst pursuing work. If any of my friends are looking for work in the near future I know in which direction I’ll be sending them. Again immeasurable thanks.
Brian O’Shaughnessy , Candidate, Orix
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you for all your help throughout the Bulmers process. You have been very helpful and attentive...by far the most professional person I have dealt with in any of the agencies. The fact that you sent additional information to me throughout each step of the process has made you stand out head and shoulders above other agencies. You have returned all my calls promptly and kept me updated at every stage and this has really impressed me.
Maeve Falvey, Candidate,
Our experience with Brightwater was a very positive one. Not having worked with them before we wondered if they would attempt to push candidates on us just because they were available, as other agencies have tried. The reality was refreshingly different. They worked with us to understand our needs and to match the candidate to the role. The candidates also benefited as they were not steered towards a role that might not be right for them.
Joe Sheehan, Financial Controller, PCH International Limited
Thanks a lot for your time and for your professionalism in dealing with my application and negotiations with Eurizon. I have found you to be very approachable and helpful at every stage of the process. In particular I would like to add that as a foreigner experiencing my first months in Dublin I have especially appreciated your consistent feedback in keeping me informed of every development along the way, something which I can say has not been true of several other recruitment agencies in Dublin.
Emauala, Candidate, Eurizon
Thank you for all your help and assistance , was a pleasure dealing with you, you gave/displayed the utmost professionalism at all times and a credit to yourself and Brightwater.
Paddy Timmons, Business Director,
Just a brief e mail regarding my experiences with the named below recruiter in your firm and his performance in assisting me to find a new role. “I have been working with Cathal O Donnell on securing a new position in the construction sector. I have been very impressed with his knowledge and drive in sourcing potential posts and I would be happy to recommend him to any of my colleagues or peers. I’m looking forward to working with Cathal in the future as my recruiter of choice” Cathal has gone out of his way on my behalf to this end and has delivered far above the required standard of professional commitment .
Adrian M Tomlinson , Construction Director,
Just wanted to say that Brightwater but Natacha Pomorski in particular has always kept me in mind for roles and I really appreciate that. There is a big difference between a professional recruiter and one who is not. Thanks for that.
Luisa Pillitu, Executive Assistant (Candidate),
I recently had the great pleasure of using Brightwater to find a new job. My experience with Brightwater has compelled me to write to you personally to express my sincere thanks for your professional service and, more particularly, the attention and help I received from your consultant Claire McGonigle. Although it is I who initially responded to an advert and expressed an interest in the job I now have, I have no doubt that Claire's analysis of my skill set and general background and her ability to match my profile to the advertised role played a huge part in my success. Her attention to every detail of the recruitment process was outstanding. She helped me to improve my CV, coached me on interview technique, boosted my confidence every step of the way and gave me valuable information on my new company and feedback at every stage of the process.Her follow up interest after I started the job also made a deep impression on me because it's one thing to secure a new role, quite another to experience and discover that it is everything you'd hoped it would be. I know that if I should seek to move on in the future, Brightwater will be my first port of call. I don't know if Claire is exceptional or merely meets a standard expected of all Brightwater consultants. I do know that she was an enormous help to me. One way or another, I commend you for the service your company, and Claire, provided to me.
Michael Phillips, Business Analyst,
In seeking applicants for the position of Financial Accountant, Brightwater was chosen as recruitment consultants on the basis of their reputation as a professional team and having a large database of candidates. They certainly lived up to their reputation in identifying suitable candidates. In addition to their very professional approach, I was also extremely impressed by their highly personal attitude and keenness to understand and satisfy needs of both client and candidate. Would I use Brightwater for future recruitment - definitely YES!
Michael McDermott, Director of Finance, The Digital Hub
I just want to thank you for your support and professionalism during my recent recruitment process. It is the first time that I have found it not to be an arduous task. The calibre of candidate that you sent were far and above any that I have seen in other agencies which is actually quite a relief as I was beginning to wonder where all the good people had gone!! I am just grateful that you sourced me out and helped me with what was beginning to look like an impossible task. Your honesty and efficiency were very much valued.  It has been a pleasure to work with you and any position that I will be recruiting for in the future will be with your organisation without question.
Avril Baskin, Regional Area Manager, Luxottica UK Ltd.
I have had the pleasure of dealing with a number of professionals within the Brightwater Sales & Marketing team. I have found them to be extremely professional and competent in their approach to recruitment and fulfilling our needs. I was particularly impressed that they had a genuine interest in our business and had a true understanding of the roles to be filled. Brightwater made the effort to visit our site and gain a rounded understanding of our business. I hope to work with them again in the future."

Liz Doyle, HR Manager, Bewleys Group
We needed to build our entire team - a team that would position Bard as a supplier of premium medical devices within the healthcare sector. A team that would be the future of our organisation in Ireland and drive growth for the coming years.

I met with a number of recruitment consultancies to determine who should partner us in this project. Brightwater's professionalism was immediately apparent and their grasp of my needs made it an easy decision to choose Brightwater as our partner in building the new Bard organisation. To date we have recruited 8 team members through Brightwaters Pharmaceutical and Sales & Marketing divisions. We have a fantastic team of high performing, high achievers and major credit goes to Brightwater for sourcing quality candidates and managing those candidates as they joined Bard.

David O'Keeffe, Country Manager, Bard Ireland

Now that we have successfully recruited a Financial Controller for the Glenbeigh Group, I thought it appropriate that I would write and thank you for the professional way the assignment was handled by Brightwater and to express my appreciation.

In particular, I would like to thank and acknowledge the role played by my consultant in the Accountancy -Industry & Commerce Team. They were extremely professional, thorough, courteous and all in all delivered a great service. Their follow-up was top class and they were a pleasure to deal with. I would have no hesitation recommending the team and Brightwater. Once again thank you for your interest in the assignment and for the way it was handled.

Tony McCarthy, Corporate Development Manager, Glenbeigh Construction
In seeking applicants for the position of Accounts Assistant, I approached Brightwater on the basis of their reputation as a professional team and the large database of candidates they work with. I found Brightwater outstanding in terms of both professionalism and quality of service.It was important to me that they took the time to visit our company and find out about our business and working environment. This, I feel, enabled them to find the best candidates to suit our needs and accountancy requirements. I have enjoyed a quality working relationship with the relevant consultant and would definitely consider Brightwater a company on which I can rely to provide a first class service.
Michael Geraghty, General Manager, Howard Property

I was very happy with the service Brightwater and their consultant in the Financial Services Division gave Hannover Re during our search for a new member of our Finance Department. We were both challenged by the role and the requirements placed upon us, but putting those difficulties aside, I enjoyed working with you.

Clare O'Connor, Company Secretary, Hannover Re

Returning to Ireland after 10 years and ensuring no gap in my career was a difficult task. Prior to my move, I contacted Brightwater  to assist me in a smooth transition. I was impressed by the frequency of communication despite my international location and an 8 hour time difference. Despite the small job market in my chosen field, Brightwater took care to match my skill set with appropriate job descriptions. Due to the diligence of the consultant at Brightwater, a suitable opportunity was identified and communicated to me as soon as it became available. Thanks to their excellent faciliation of the entire interview process I was quickly appointed to my current position. It was a pleasure to work with Brightwater and I hold  the company in high regard.

Margaret Cooney, Clinical Operations Manager, Sanofi-Aventis Ireland
We have found that Brightwater have over the last two years helped us to fill key roles in our organisation in a thorough, professional and efficient way. We have 2 excellent employees now carrying out strategic functions in our company and a third only started recently.We have no hesitation recommending Brightwater to anyone seeking Insurance Professionals. The attention to detail is superb and the consultants gave a unique service and made every effort to understand our role and the best candidate to fill that role.
Peter Hanlon, Director, McMahon Galvin
PESL needed to make a key appointment to complement the Finance Team. From the outset Brightwater were professional, trustworthy and aligned with my goals as a customer. On this particular recruitment exercise, I was assisted by a consultant on Brightwater's Industry & Commerce team. Coming from a customer focussed organisation, I am particularly fussy about the level of service I receive from suppliers. My consultant was excellent for a number of reasons; Knowledge of the market for finance candidates. Tacit understanding of my organisation's culture resulting in a strong shortlist of candidates. First class professionalism and ease with which the consultant fit the recruitment process around my timetable. I am pleased to recommend Brightwater and their Industry & Commerce team as a superlative example of how recruitment should be handled.
Michael Donnelly, Head of Finance, Powerteam Electrical Services (PESL)

I found Brightwater recruitment provided both an efficient and friendly service. Brightwater's consultants listen and take on your individual job requirements and ensure that you are quickly and fully updated on appropriate positions as they become available.

My consultant in Brightwater's Industry & Commerce Division in Dublin provided constant reliable and informed support throughout what is a difficult decision making process.

Pat Hand, Director / Company Secretary, DA: Financial Outsourcing Ltd
Sanofi-Aventis have an excellent relationship with Brightwater. In our view, the key to success in recruitment is a close relationship with the client and the recruiter. We regard Brightwater as a Business Partner who works very closely with us and who really understands our needs.
Ciaran Coleman, HR Director, Sanofi Aventis
I recently engaged with your company in relation to a vacancy you advertised. It has been many years since I have entered the recruitment process and I have been liaising with a gentleman called Hugh McCarthy from your team. At every single interaction he has been impressive. In all my dealings with Hugh, he has consistently gone above beyond your 'candidate charter'. He has kept me fully briefed of all developments, openly; honestly discussed concerns, asked questions and pro-actively followed up on matters. He (and the support people around him) are a credit to your organisation. I am in the midst of an interview process at the moment and I think it is important (before I know the outcome) to acknowledge his work.
Daragh Treacy , Candidate,
 I really do appreciate your help and support in securing the role with Oxigen. It's an repeated cliche, but one in this case that is so so apt - I could not have done it without you ! You were a great motivator. and a source of significant encouragement.
Bernard Colgan, Candidate,
I'd just like to put in some positive feedback for one of your staff members Claire McGonigle. I've been working with her for a number of weeks around a particular position and I've found her to be extremely helpful and pleasant throughout. I believe in acknowledging good service so I felt it was worth the mention.
Jody Briggs, Candidate - IT,
It’s great to be back in work and due in no small part to the time and effort put in by Caroline and Natacha. Your mentoring, advice, and interview preparation and feedback was excellent. Your understanding of your clients requirements and matching those to potential interviewees was spot on. To achieve first and second place in two separate applications is testament to your strategies and abilities, coupled with your pleasant and professional demeanour puts you in a different league. It was a pleasure working with you as you are both excellent ambassadors for your company.
Dermot Duggan, Candidate,
I just wanted to send you an email to say a big thank you for all the help you gave me over the past few months in the whole recruitment process. Since returning to Ireland I have dealt with a number of recruiters and other agencies and none of them were as efficient or as helpful as you. And I just want to give you my sincerest thanks for this.
Chris Gleeson, IT Project Manager,
Brightwater have provided a very good quality and timely recruitment service to us. In particular, Denis MacSweeney advised on the best routes to candidates, and provided us with an excellent short list of candidates that matched our requirements. I can confidently recommend Brightwater as an excellent IT Recruiter, and experts in their field.
John Cox, Financial Controller, Marchmont
Adam displays excellence in each area of the recruitment process, as an extremely committed recruiter, he is able to efficiently bring together all parties whilst maintaining a high level of professionalism and dedication. He is personable, honest and displays a high level of knowledge of the industry. I would have no hesitation in recommending Adam to any candidate or working with him again as a client.
Michael Martin, Candidate,

Brightwater have provided a very good quality and timely recruitment service to us. In particular, Denis MacSweeney advised on the best route to candidates and provided us with an excellent short list of candidates that matched our requirements.

I have confidently recommend Brightwater as an excellent IT recruiter and experts in their field.

John Cox, Financial Controller, Marchmont

I would just like to say you are by far and away the best recruiter I have encountered. You are honest, open and frank. A real pleasure to deal with.

Richard Hendrick, Candidate,
I have worked with a number of recruitment agencies over the past couple of months and I have found Brightwater to be by far the best. Steven was very helpful and unlike other agencies, he did not keep sending me roles that he knew I would not have an interest in. Steven dealt with all my queries very quickly. Steven also contacted me after I started in my new position to ensure that I was happy there and that everything was going ok. I would definitely recommend Brightwater and Steven to other people.
Ruth Ryan, Candidate,

.....thank you so much for your assistance in helping me get the position of payroll specialist. I had been in touch with many recruitment agencies and the lack of communication on their part was really frustrating me. Within a few days of contacting Brightwater, I had a phone call from yourself, not only were you very professional but also very friendly and extremely helpful in helping me prepare for my interview.

I can't thank you enough as you have provided me with my ideal job in a fantastic company. I have already recommended you and Brightwater to friends and colleagues.

Gena Farrell, Candidate,

I have had the pleasure of working with a team of professionals within the Brightwater team. I have found them to be extremely professional and competent, sending very good candidates and understanding perfectly what we were looking for at that point in time.

I was also impressed by the follow up and felt in very good hands during the whole recruitment process. The position was filled in a short period of time with an excellent candidate which fitted perfectly our culture. I hope to work with them again in the future.

Pascale Lagreze, HR Coordinator, Pioneer Investment Management Limited

Thank you very much for all your help. From the outset Steven Heather was extremely professional in his dealings with me. He arranged an interview preparation session and gave me excellent tips for the interview itself and more importantly built up my confidence. I appreciate the time he put in and believe it is a reflection of your diligence and commitment to the highest professional standards in your industry.

I will be deeply recommending Brightwater and Steven Heather in particular, to anyone whom I meet in the future looking to change role and/or company within the financial arena.

I have had dealings with various recruiters in both Ireland and Spain over the years and none have offered the level of expertise, professionalism and genuine caring for candidates. I have the strong impression that Steven would only suggest a candidate where he feels that he or she would be a genuinely good match with the role and company.

Miguel Vegas Santiago, Candidate,
Denis McSweeny (Brightwater's IT division) is an extremely helpful and goal oriented professional. He is an excellent communicator and works hard to achieve great results.
Denis Clancy, Candidate - IT,
Many thanks (to your sales and marketing team) for all your help. As discussed, while salary was never the driver, the fit, the people and the challenge were always going to be the clincher. I believe that we have ticked all of those boxes. I would like to take the opportunity to compliment Brightwater on your professionalism.From the outset this was obvious and I hope as the business grows, to become a client as opposed to a candidate.
Peter Connolly, Candidate,

Thanks for your assistance with my placement. Working with you for this role was a wonderful experience right from the motivating meeting I had with you at the Brightwater office through to your perfect understanding of what I needed and prompt communication.

I really do appreciate this and thanks again.

Sandra Ivonye, Candidate,
I would just like to thank you again for all your help with finding this position. From your helpful suggestions about my CV to working through the interview process with me, without which I strongly believe I would never have got this position. Thank you so much!
Rachel Macken, Candidate,

I am very pleased with the assistance you provided me in my successful recruitment to ICON. You kept me informed and up to date on my progress through the interview process. The mock telephone interview you did with me was very beneficial and undoubtedly helped in my success. I think the job I have gained is a good fit for me and I thank you for all your help.

 

Fiona Allan, Candidate,

Thanks a million for all your help in relation to my new role with Focus Ireland. Your level of commitment and how you kept me informed throughout each step of the process was very much appreciated, even if me being in Poland made it that bit more difficult for you.

I was lucky to have you as my recruitment agent.

Simon McCartney, Candidate,

Nuala has assisted Hibernia Atlantic with the recruitment of our accounts roles this year. She always goes the extra mile to find the best people for our company. Nuala puts all her effort into the projects and ensures she knows the job inside out before searching for candidates while presenting a very friendly manner. She has recently made a successful placement in our Finance department, of which she carried out an impressive follow up to ensure the candidate was satisfied in the role. I highly recommend Nuala's work and I always find it a pleasure to work with her on our recruitment needs.

 

Laura Dowling, HR Administrator, Hibernia Atlantic
I have recently had the pleasure in working with Suzanne in securing a position with an accountancy firm in Dublin. I found Suzanne to be an extremely pleasant and knowledgeable person who took the time to discuss all elements of the recruitment process with me. She has a great knowledge of Irish financial markets and gave me great insight into current opportunities. I found her to be extremely approachable and would have no hesitation in recommending her as a recruitment agent.
Ann-Marie Costello, Restructuring & Recovery Manager, Grant Thornton
In all my dealings with Suzanne, I have found that she has expert in-depth knowledge of both her clients and the employment market. She has always provided me with invaluable advice and has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only is she extremely hard working, professional and efficient but in my experience, she goes out of her way to ensure her clients get the desired results. I would highly recommend Suzanne to people thinking of changing jobs and to firms looking to engage a recruitment agency.
Eoghan Bracken, Tax Manager, Moore Stephens Nathans
Thank you for all your hard work with the role. I really appreciated your personal, friendly yet professional manner. Hopefully I will not need to contact you for your expertise again :) but I will highly recommend you to anyone I know needing recruitment.
Niamh Adams, Candidate,
I was made redundant from my position in early March and within two weeks I had started in my new position due to fantastic work by Louise Canty. Louise from the word go knew what I wanted for my career going forward. After each interview I got a call from Louise updating me within an hour. When it came to final talks Louise did a great job getting contracts to me and start dates. In the current climate it is great to meet someone within the recruitment industry who is so positive. I have and will continue to recommend Louise and Brightwater Recruitment after my experience.
Edward Mulligan, Candidate ,
Louise found a number of excellent candidates which we interviewed for two roles. She took the time to understand what we were looking for and was able to find us a range of suitable candidates to interview. In particular, Louise found a very suitable candidate for a position for which we had very complicated experience and qualification requirements. In both cases, Louise found excellent candidates who matched and exceeded our expectations. I was impressed by Louise's dedication to the job and she always ensured to keep in touch to make sure the processes kept moving.
Fintan Breen, Head of National Services, Red Cross
I just wanted to say thank you for all your help in securing interviews for me and for your advice and professionalism. I have dealt with many agencies in the past and have to say I have never experienced the level of service and swift results from any of them anywhere close to Brightwater. I would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone looking for a good recruitment agency and hope the company goes from strength to strength in the future.
Laura Murphy, Candidate,
I was particularly careful in my selection of recruitment agencies that I decided to register with. Unfortunately, my experience with the majority that I went with, was to say the least very frustrating and that's being diplomatic. The one shining exception is Brightwater. My initial contact with Brightwater and all subsequent communication with every member of staff that I dealt with, whether by phone, email or voice messages was extremely professional and competent without exception. I cannot emphasise enough how strongly I appreciate the effort and time that you put into building a relationship with me. You worked tirelessly and effortlessly to gain a complete understanding of my experience, career objectives and importantly, me the person behind the CV! You have been highly efficient and professional at all times, no other recruiter in my experience has come close to your standard. Thank you again for all the effort and hard work in securing my new role. I would not hesitate to recommend you personally to anyone wishing to register with an agency.
Lisa O'Hara, Candidate - Supply Chain,

I just wanted to say thank you to Cathal for all his help and assistance over the last 2 months. From our initial contact, you have been professional throughout. You advised me where required and kept me fully abreast of all the information which was made available to you. The aforementioned combined with constantly keeping in contact throughout the whole recruitment process made me feel you were confident from the start that the position was mine.

Nigel Boocock, Candidate - International Engineering,
I just want to say a quick thank you to Brightwater for their assistance in helping me get a really great job. I've just been offered a fantastic IT support position. The position is practically my dream job, I couldn't have wished for a better one. In particular I'd like to thank my Brightwater recruitment consultant for her mentoring and help during the whole selection process. I found her to be very helpful and extremely professional, and as I would expect from a good recruitment agent, she continually kept me up-to-date with the various stages of the interview process. So thank you, I couldn't have done it without you.
Jordan Clarke, Candidate - IT,
We filled a number of positions through Brightwater where Adam is one of our key contacts. Adam helped us with finding excellent candidates as he understands the environment and the needs of our company. Adam provided us with a high standard of service in combination with a personal approach. I would have no hesitation in recommending Adam to other clients and I look forward to continuing cooperation.
Tomas Sztymon, HR, Partner Re

I wish to acknowledge Adam's professionalism and unrelenting commitment to securing high calibre candidates for our organisation. Adam ensures that he fully understands our organisation needs, our internal culture and the markets in which we exist in order to ensure a "best fit" approach. Candidates selected for interview have proven to be well prepared with a strong understanding of the role and its key objectives. Adam's approach gives the whole process a more balanced and richer experience for all involved, ensuring candidates are treated fairly and our organisation is well represented.

It is a pleasure to work with Adam.

Roisin Down, Senior HR Business Partner, QBE Management

Sarah-Louise in Brightwater was responsible for placing our role of International Finance Administrator in June 2011. She listened to our requirements for the role and explained the process to us in a clear and transparent manner. She presented to us a varied number of candidates wtih the relevant qualifications and experience which we shortlisted.

Sarah-Louise was very efficient in arranging appropriate interview times to suit the candidates and the company and gave revelant feedback after each interview to us. Sarah-Louise was very professional, competent and a real pleasure to deal with. I would not hesitate to contact Sarah-Louise again.

 

Anne Egan, Senior Financial Accountant, Europ Assistance
Natacha manages clients' expectations exceedingly well. Not only is she positive, realistic and optimistic, she manages the entire process in an extremely efficient and professional manner. She is personable, likeable and presents top quality candidates that really align with what you are seeking. I would recommend Natacha to any organisation that is looking for a recruiter who knows her sector inside out but offers a top quality service focused on quality candidates to meet the requirements expressed by the company. Natacha will also keep in touch and engages in 360 feedback which is highly valuable in the current market.
Michelle Doherty, HR Executive, Distribution Company
John Howe is probably the best consultant I have known in Ireland. He is very professional and friendly. Within just a few minutes of talking with him, you will feel like you are talking to a friend. It is always harder to find a good job when you are learning English but John was there to encourage me and make me feel confident to pass the interview despite knowing that my English wasn't as good as the other candidates. From the beginning to the end, he was always there helping me and addressing my concerns. Everything he did, he just did well. I am now really happy in my new job. Thanks
Ander Ustarroz, Candidate,

Recently I was a candidate of Brightwater Recruitment and was successfully placed with Synthes Ireland. I have been meaning over the last number of weeks to send you a quick note of appreciation for the way I was helped by your company and in particular Eileen Wall.

Over a 3 - 4 week period I received help from Eileen that really was above the call of duty and I don't mind admitting that if it wasn't for Eileen's help, I would not be in the position I am in today and I genuinely be eternally grateful as I have received a huge opportunity with this role.

As we see and hear every day, Ireland has become a very negative place particularly when it comes to the area of employment and it was so refreshing to deal with someone like Eileen who was so positive and upbeat and so willing to lend a hand no matter how silly the question or request might have seemed, this is something I had not experienced with other agencies.

Best of luck to you and the company in future and thanks again.

Dave Bennett, Candidate,
Cathal is a very personable, competent and detail oriented professional in his field. I witnessed Cathal fully engaged in his profession with a high level of integrity, professionalism, attention to detail and a distinct focus on results. He is acutely fit and qualified to work in the Recruitment Industry. I therefore recommend Cathal for any kind of related employment.
Terry Lukan, Associate Manager - Route Acquisition, TDS Telecommunications Group
Thanks a lot for your time and for your professionalism in dealing with my application and negotiations with Eurizon. I have found you to be very approachable and helpful at every stage of the process. In particular I would like to add that as a foreigner experiencing my first months in Dublin I have especially appreciated your consistent feedback in keeping me informed of every development along the way, something which I can say has not been true of several other recruitment agencies in Dublin.
Ira Emafarina, Candidate,
I have been working with Cal over the past couple of months in securing a new international role and I have to say that he is one of the best recruitment consultants that I have worked with. In my experience, Cal possesses a rare commodity which is not usually found in the recruitment industry, as he is honest, has integrity and does what he says he'll do when he says he will do it. His friendly and consultative approach to the role makes him a pleasure to deal with, especially during the frustrating period between final interview and receipt of offer. He kept me informed of everything that was going on throughout the recruitment process and his personable approach made me feel like I was his only candidate. The only thing that I think that I really need to say is for candidates he is fantastic, and for employers I think that your first port of call should be Cal. Thank you Cal for the support and encouragement that you have provided.
Stephen Fawcett, Candidate,
We were extremely happy with the service Brightwater provided our company. I have dealt with the financial services team on a few occasions and found them to be extremely helpful and professional.I hope to work with them again in the near future.
Aisling Heraty, Human Resources Manager, Allianz

Good communication is a key aspect in any organisation and Brightwater have it in abundance. Regular updates and striving to suit the candidate's needs are just part of the excellent service provided, this is on top of having a top quality employer client base.

Brightwater are ahead of their competitors in many ways and are the recruitment consultants I would recommend if asked. The last thing to say is thanks to my consultant who helped with my job search and to Brightwater themselves.

David Dunning, Accountant,
Brightwater more than meets my criteria and many of their submitted candidates are invariably shortlisted for a second interview with Leo-Pharma.
Denis Byrne , Sales Manager, Leo-Pharma Irl. Ltd
Claire was instrumental in connecting me with a company I really wanted to work for, which resulted in a role, as Senior UX Designer, which I'm very happy with. She very attentive throughout the whole process from the interview stage and right on throughout my first few weeks in the role, making sure it was a suitable role, which it was. I have once had the opposite experience with a recruiter who dumped me into an unsuitable company and was never to be heard from again, so I can really appreciate the attention Claire puts into the whole process, resulting in a suitable match for both employers and employees.
John Braine, Candidate,
I would recommend your services to any candidate seeking a new job. I found you to be professional and helped me be fully prepared for my interview. Also, in the days following the interview, you kept be fully up to date with the process.
Nessa Feighery , Candidate,
I have found working with Brightwater to be a great experience as they are truly professional, an honest working company and a pleasure to do business with.
Marina Bishop, Head of Regulatory Affairs , Oriflame
My sincere thanks to Brightwater and in particular my consultant in the IT division for their level of aftercare. I very much appreciate the lengths my consultant went to to resolve issues. The level of customer service I have experienced from Brightwater has been excellent and I would highly recommend Brightwater to any of my colleagues who are seeking contract employment.
Caroline Macken, IT Project Manager, Contractor - Various
I really appreciate the efforts the team at Brightwater have put into making sure I get a job. My experience with Brightwater has been amazing; right from the reception I got from the lady on the front desk who offered me a cup of tea on that rainy day along with a sheet of paper containing a promise to find me a place to work. Brightwater has fulfilled every single part of that promise to me, particularly with the frequent calls to reassure me that you are doing your best. Your service has been exceptional, second to none!
Mike Odor, Accounts Assistant, Clarion Hotel
In my opinion, Brightwater "stands out" in terms of professionalism and quality of service. It is important to me that they have taken the time to find out about our business and working environment. This, I feel, enables them to find the best candidates to suit our needs. I enjoy a quality working relationship with the Science & Pharmaceutical team and they have never put forward a candidate who was unsuitable. Brightwater is a company on which I can rely to provide a top rate service.
Daragh O'Shea, HR Manager, Niche Generics Ltd
Thanks so much for all your support over the past couple of weeks. I look forward to working with you again in the future. If I get the opportunity, either in this role or with associates, I will be sure to promote you and Brightwater as I found you to be so professional in your approach to me as a candidate that I could certainly rely on any information you would pass as a potential business associate.
Evelyn , Candidate,
I would like to thank you for all the hard work and effort that you gave, in successfully getting me a new job. I know it has been a couple of months since I started and it’s been a rollercoaster few months for me but I was determined to make sure I got to thanking you. I would just like to say a huge thank you for all of your professionalism, patience, communication and insights when it came to different interviewers and companies. I was using a couple of other agencies but without doubt the team in Brightwater were head and shoulders above everyone else. I always felt comfortable with the information you gave whether it was positive or negative. And even though I missed out on a couple of jobs that I thought at the time would have been great, I firmly believe that I’m in the right company that suits me and my career goals. It is not lightly that I write this email and believe me that I would gladly recommend you on to other potential clients or companies.
Stephen Behan, Candidate,
Recently I got a job with Brinks through you guys. I just want to say thank you to you and your team for everything you done to help me. I can safely say out of all the recruitment agencies I've dealt with (which was alot!!) you guys are by for the best. Can I just say a special thanks to Claire McGonigle who I have to say was outstanding in helping me get the position. I felt I could contact her at any stage for help or if I had any queries and she always kept me in the loop and updated to what was going on. So will you please pass on my thanks to her. I have passed her details on to all my friends all ready so I really hope you guys get more business
Darren Cavanagh, Candidate,
I just wanted to thank Emma and Natacha for the assignment at Information Mosaic. Your assistance with my job search and speedy placement as a temp was much appreciated and a vital step for me in settling down in Dublin. I would be happy to recommend your recruitment services and would not hesitate again in contacting you to assist with any future job search.
Tammy Davidson, Candidate,
I would like to write and thank you for helping me to obtain my position as Information Officer with the Irish Council for Civil Liberties. This is the type of role I've been trying to find for a very long time and I know that it was your help that made all the difference. Your professionalism and courtesy were above anything I have experienced before from an agency and I have taken the liberty of recommending you to several colleagues.
Lorraine Curran, Candidate,
Caroline is one of the most professional recruiters that I have come across either as a candidate or as a client. Because of her own engineering background, Caroline has an excellent knowledge and understanding of the exact requirements of technical industry roles and responsibilities, outside of the typically sparse ones contained in a job specification. She listens and considers carefully in conversation and is capable of making intuitive leaps regarding possible avenues to chase. In other words, she understands and promotes transferrable skill-sets which alone would make her stand out in her industry. She is effortlessly engaging, enthusiastic and no detail seems to escape her. She keeps her commitments regarding actions and timelines and communicates updates regularly. A true recruitment industry star and I could not recommend her services highly enough.
Denis Egan, Candidate,
Brightwater has provided a first-rate and highly efficient service to Meridian VAT Processing International over the last three years. They have provided Data Entry/Administration staff for various temporary assignments, which can require up to thirty staff at any given time. The service from Brightwater has always been extremely positive, prompt and professional. Emma Anglim (Assistant Manager) has a thorough understanding of the calibre of person required for a variety of roles that we have required in the recent past. Emma has consistently provided a quick and efficient service to Meridian and will make a point of understanding our requirement, allowing our needs to be fulfilled very efficiently. Brightwater have consistently enabled us to fulfill our recruitment requirements, which could not have been achieved without their help.  I would have no hesitation in recommending their services and Meridian will certainly continue to avail of their services in the future.
Sonia Cullen, Human Resources, Meridian
Through-out the past few years I have either been looking in earnest or casually looking for a role. I therefore, have had contact with a number of different recruitment agencies either through application for a particular role or registering with company. In many, if not most cases, once initial role or interview was completed the recruiter was never to be heard from again. In some cases I have gone for interview (travelling a distance in some instances) but never receiving feedback even when sought. Thankfully this is not the case with Brightwater and in particular Caroline and Shaun. These two individuals put a smile on my face even when they are telling me that I didn't get a role or that I wasn't suited. They have a manner that is professional yet friendly and guided me to deliver a better Curriculum Vitae that is suited to the role I am applying for. There are so many recruiters who could learn from these individuals and understand the whole picture and not JUST play the numbers game. A credit to the company and the industry as a whole and will work with them when recruiting for sure.
Declan Smith, Candidate,
Eileen was instrumental in helping me to secure a new position with a UK Pharmaceutical company during the month of December 2011. Eileen's phone is always on and her feedback and assistance was invaluable to me throughout the interview process. I found her to be most diligent and helpful with any queries I had, I feel Eileen is a serious asset to your organisation. I will be recommending Eileen to colleagues in the industry, and I look forward to working with her in the future.
Seán Gaffney , Sales Manager, Fannin Ltd
I have been registered with Brightwater recruitment agency for nearly two years. In those two years I have found them very professional and friendly to deal with. The interview prep they offered was invaluable. Most recently I dealt with Stephen Heather who has placed me in a permanent position. He could not have been more helpful with regards to the interview prep he offered and he also passed on his mobile number if I had any queries outside of working hours. He kept me updated throughout the Christmas period in relation to my current position. I would highly recommend Brightwater recruitment agency.
Dawn O Driscoll, Candidate,
I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work closely with Cathal O'Donnell as my advocate during a personal high level job search. Cal's heightened ability to communicate efficiently and effectively with both me and my new employer made a high-quality international management position a reality for me. Cathal's planning and time management skills allowed us to achieve in a number of days what would otherwise have required weeks. I strongly recommend Cal as both a highly ethical and very productive professional recruitment manager.
Steven L. Weinbrenner , International Safety Director, Black & Veatch
Just a word of thanks for all your help with the recruitment of the Program Manager for WIP.  Although you may have found Breidge and I to be sticklers for process, such attention to detail early on can prevent later litigation which, in this jurisdiction, is particularly prevalent, I am sorry to say, in the not-for -profit sector. Your professional advice and, equally importantly, approach to the task and to all applicants, was much appreciated and made the work of the selection panel a pleasure. Please convey my thanks also to Barbara whose contribution mirrored yours.
Denis Wilson, Candidate,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for all your hard work over the last months trying to find me a position, I really do appreciate this.  You are both excellent recruiters and I shall recommend you to anyone I know who are job hunting.
Damien Walsh, Candidate,
Thanks so much for your work the last two days in resolving this. I know that I have put you under quite a bit of pressure to understand the complexity of what we were grappling with, but your help was much appreciated.
Anthony Ball , Finance Director, Birds Eye UK
I really appreciate that you are still in contact with me. I have to admit that I didn't meet such a good and effective agency in Ireland so far. Who ever is asking me for a good agency you are the first I'm going to recommend! And of course whenever I'm searching for a job again I will come back to you as well. Once again thank you very much!
Marzena Henschel, Candidate,
Just wanted to say I had a first meeting with one of yourconsultants Natacha Pomorski. I found her to be professional, freindly and very supportive. She is obviously a great asset to your outfit, and I just wanted to pass on my compliments. I was treated like a real person, rather than just a number like with so many recruitment agencies. I was also highly impressed by the candidate charter and in light of my meeting, believe it was not just a marketing gimmick but the reality of how Brightwater feel and do business. Thank you and congratulations!
Sinead Laffan, Candidate,
I was contacted by Shaun Du Preez from Brightwater recruitment Dublin regarding a position that had become available and was of interest to me. From the first point of contact with Shaun he was very professional and his knowledge of the role and the business were excellent. Not only did Shaun secure me a first round interview very quickly but his interview preparation, his attention to detail and his knowledge of the role and the business the role was in was exceptional. After I was given a second and final round interview Shaun again was able to offer incredible guidance and knowledge of the type of questions I would be asked at this interview. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Brightwater recruitment and for me it was testament to your company that you have people of such professionalism and enthusiasm.
Philip Garry, Candidate,
I had the pleasure of dealing with Hugh recently on a position. Hugh's professional approach was extremely commendable and therefore I wish to acknowledge same.
