CANDIDATE TESTIMONIALS

Vincent Tobin - R&D Analyst - Transitions Optical

            Working with Cliona and Hero was a really positive experience. She is earnest, intelligent and professional. Cliona               helped me to secure my desired position in Research and Development. Cliona kept in regular contact with me and             helped to prepare me for my interviews. She gave valuable insight and support throughout the whole process. I                   moved to Ireland for the position and Cliona went above and beyond to support me, even after I had secured the                 position. 


James McFetridge - Production Supervisor - Tipperary Foods

Having worked with Anna on a few roles I have found her very efficient , helpful and understanding of the needs of both the employer and jobseeker. Anna communicates very well throughout the entire recruitment process and this helps to alleviate any concerns that may arise. I would highly recommend Anna to both an employer seeking a new recruit and a jobseeker seeking a new role.

Mike Davies - Production Supervisor - Stryker

During my job hunting experience I found Anna fantastic. She really had great knowledge of my industry and applied her great recruiting experience to support me every step of the way. I secured the perfect position for me and I don't think I could have done it without her.

The support Deirdre provided me with during my job hunting process was well and above what I expected. Her professionalism and dedication to achieve the best possible role for me really shone through. She was able to set me up with interviews and helped secure me my current role. I have already recommended her to my colleagues currently searching for roles.

Adam Fieldhouse - Senior Validation Engineer - Vistakon Johnson & Johnson

Deirdre has been my first contact with the world of recruitment, and it has been nothing short of an absolute pleasure. From the time she contacted me, to the point of receiving my new contract, it was no more than a few days. The efficiency and professionalism shown by Deirdre has made this entire process utterly enjoyable and she will be my first port of call when the time for a new challenge comes along. I cannot thank you enough.

Paul O Donnell - R&D Project Manager - Hollister

I have recently worked with HERO Recruitment on a career move to a multi-national medical device company. In particular, I found Nicola O'Connell from HERO to be very professional, caring and supportive of myself throughout the recruitment process, which resulted in a successful outcome for me.

Susan Gilmore - Projects Financial Analyst - Alere

I recently had the pleasure of working with Nicola in HERO and would highly recommend her to colleagues as a recruitment agent. She possessed great industry specific knowledge, was able to match my skills and experience perfectly to an exciting job opportunity and provided the support and advice required in order to prepare for the job application and interview process. Overall, working with HERO and Nicola has been a very positive experience.

Anna Williams - Material Scientist - Johnson and Johnson (Depuy)

I came across Nicola when I started looking for jobs in Ireland. Nicola has a deep understanding of the job market and needs of the Science and Engineering industry in Ireland, and I found her a great source of knowledge when applying for jobs and during the recruitment process. After being offered a position in Ireland Nicola was a real help offering advice on relocation and putting me in contact with people who could help with my different queries and needs.

Orla Boyle - Formulations Analyst - Ballina Beverages

Job hunting can be quite a stressful, time consuming and tough experience, however when dealing with a recruiter it makes the whole process a lot smoother and stress free.
Whilst applying to jobs via IrishJobs.ie, I came into contact with Nicola from HERO recruitment, and she made my overall job hunting experience a lot easier!

I found it great having her to voice any concerns to that I may have had in regards to job role information, contract details, etc. She was a helpful ear when faced with the difficult decision of choosing between two job roles. She was always available to contact when I was faced with any questions, and overall I don’t think my job hunt would have been as successful without her help.

I would definitely recommend the help of a recruiter, as it makes the process of finding and securing the perfect role that bit easier, and Nicola was great.

Gerry Fahy - Formulations Analyst - Ballina Beverages

I have to give my sincerest gratitude to Nicola for finding me this job and negotiating the terms on my behalf. I am very excited about this new challenge and stage in my life, all thanks to Nicola. I have had some experience with recruitment agencies in the past but I feel HERO Recruitment are truly unique in professionalism and understanding of the industry. I will be certain to recommend Nicola to any contacts of mine who are looking for employment.

Christina Menzel - Alere - German Technical Support Associate

In December 2015 I had contacted HERO Recruitment in regards to a job advertised on the website.

For the few weeks during my application process Aisling has been truly amazing!

She always updated me either by phone or email during the process in a very friendly and highly professional manner. She helped me prepare for my interview and gave me a lot of great advice. Aisling always made sure I had all the necessary information and made follow up phone calls. I believe she had a great impact on my success in getting the job because she prepared me so well for everything. I would really recommend Aisling to all job seekers out there and wish everyone the best of luck. I certainly am very happy with the outcome and want to say thanks a million to Aisling and HERO for getting me to where I am now.
