Marc Bentley

I had a previous experience in working with Brightwater in 2016 and now I had the pleasure to work with them in 2017 again and I can say that the agency is without a doubt, one of the best recruitment agencies for business professionals in Ireland. Their recruiters are always very professional and helpful. They are very motivational at all times and work in partnership with the candidates to place them on the best job roles in Dublin.

Anette Moura, Spanish Buyer for Re:Sources (January 2018)


Kim Cody

Just a few words to let you know that I am very happy with the way in which you are managing my case. Your prompt responses to my queries and your efficiency in providing me information are greatly appreciated. I understand why your agency has been proclaimed winner recruitment agency of the year!

Angelica Clara Casá (December 2017)


John Howe

Just a quick note as we come to the end of the year. I wanted to thank you for all your help and support as I went through the process and finally got this role at Davy. I am really enjoying it and think the fit is good so thank you very very much!

Simon McKinney, Davy (December 2017)


Emma Hannigan

It has been a pleasure working with you. As mentioned on the phone, I have been working with 4 recruitment agencies on this assignment, and I have found Brightwater to be the most responsive. I look forward to working with you again.

Mark Groves, Group Financial Projects & Planning Manager - PM Group (November 2017)


Emma Hannigan

Emma was fantastic in my search for the right job! Always listened to my needs and extremely supportive throughout the entire process - loved working with her!

Aisling O'Mahony, Financial Accountant II - ICON (November 2017)


Emma Hannigan

Emma was hugely professional and helpful in all my dealings with her. I found her personable and knowledgeable and made the entire recruitment process as easy as possible. I would not hesitate in recommending Emma to colleagues in the future.

Muireann Byrne, Senior Financial Accountant - Arboretum (November 2017)


Emma Hannigan

The very 1st interview Emma set up for me was for the ideal job. She really took the time to understand what I wanted and guided me all the way. I was offered the job the next day and am very happy with it. Emma is brilliant at what she does and always available to help. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new job or any company looking to hire staff.

Sterrin Denby, Accounts Payable Controller - Kayfoam (November 2017)


Marc Bentley

I was recently placed into my current role by Marc Bentley. Marc fully understood my skills and capabilities and managed to find me a role that not only can I can add value to but also one which will allow me to grow my career. Similarly I was previously placed in another role by Orla Brennan and both were a fantastic reflection on your organization. A true recruitment professional will perfectly match the client with the candidate and I feel that this is one of the reasons that Brightwater continues to be a leader in the recruitment field. It has been my experience that on many occasions that recruitment consultants have been more sales driven rather than results driven. Sorry for the gushing email but quite often we get contacted with complaints and criticisms and rarely with positive experiences.
Wishing you and your team continued success.

Stephen Harding, CoE Buying Team - Re:Sources (November 2017)


Anna Maria Kerley

I am writing this letter to highly recommend one of your recruiters, Anna-Maria Kerley. With the help of Anna-Maria, I have succeeded in obtaining my dream job position as customer service specialist in the luxury brand Dita Eyewear. I really felt that Anna-Maria went above and beyond even after I was offered the position. Overall, I was very impressed with the service I received from Anna-Maria in my job search. 

Jessica Murray (October 2017)


Annita McGettigan

From the moment we reached out to Annita the service she provided was professional, efficient and friendly. The Society will definitely use Brightwater for our recruitment needs going forward and would highly recommend any organisations who require support on recruitment to do the same!  

Patricia Daly - Alzheimers’ Society (October 2017)


Stacy Keogh

I met Stacy first when she was working on a role with one of my ex colleagues and I was providing a reference call for him.  Stacy sent jobs that were completely relevant that proves Stacy's attention to the detail. I liked the fact that she didn't push or force. From this point until I signed the contract I was extremely happy with Stacy's work ethic. Stacy was always very energetic and that type of recruiter who can boost the candidate's confidence level to be able to proceed successfully.

Adam Thaler (October 2017)


Con Lam

Thank you for a very professional service. I have been very impressed with the overall high standards you adopt and we will certainly be using you again for future needs.

Grainne Convery – Vision Brand Consultancy (October 2017)


Derek Smyth

From the moment I spoke with Derek, he took an active interest in ensuring that the role is the right fit for me. He was professional, very efficient and above all, very knowledgeable about the client and the role. He helped with everything from advising on my cv to my preparation for the interviews. He ultimately secured an offer with an industry leader. Thank you Derek!

Fiy Adekleke (October 2017)


Stephanie McQuillan

I contacted Stephanie McQuillan in Brightwater Recruitment last Wednesday (27th Sep 2017) regarding a customer service role I was viewing online. The entire process was unbelievably professional and quick and I would definitely recommend Brightwater, especially Stephanie, to anyone seeking employment. Finally I would like to place on record my total gratitude to both Stephanie and Brightwater for an incredibly professional service as I now have received an offer of employment with SSE. 

Fergal McVeigh (October 2017)


Kate O'Dea

I would like to share some kind words with you about one of your recruiters Kate O'Dea. She has worked with me the past couple of weeks and has successfully helped me to find an ideal job. I had been meeting with a lot of recruitment agencies where I was consistently made to feel as though my expectations were too high. When Kate phoned me, I immediately noticed that there was no judgement and she was so encouraging to speak to. I truly felt as though I was speaking to an old friend which made me feel so at ease. I felt comfortable enough to be fully honest about what it was I was looking for. She confirmed that I absolutely had enough experience behind me and told me about 3 roles that really matched up with what I had described. I felt that, not only did she listen very carefully to what I had to say, but that she really seemed to care. This made me feel so loyal toward Brightwater that I cancelled my other interviews that were offered to me by other recruitment agencies because I had full trust in Kate that she knew what she was doing. It didn't feel at all as though she was selling a role or a company to me, it felt 100% genuine. The in-depth level of knowledge she had on every role she described and the extra information she had on the companies was so impressive to me compared with other recruitment agencies. There was no second-guessing because she painted a full picture and, not only did she forward on job descriptions, but she typed up all of the extra information we had discussed on the phone for my ease of reference which was very helpful. Her professionalism was so impressive. I felt I had someone truly rooting for me and that she went far above her job description in that she truly cared. That is so rare to find in my opinion and I have honestly never felt the urge to contact someone's manager before due to being so impressed by someone. She gave me as many tips as she could and really helped to build up my self esteem before my interviews. She phoned me before my first interview and I really felt so supported throughout the entire process which absolutely led to my success in getting the job I had really wanted. Finally, I would like to thank Kate and Brightwater for helping to make what would normally have been a difficult and nerve-racking experience for me, a positive and an enjoyable one.

Briana Horan (September 2017)


John Howe

I was contacted by John with a job opportunity which led to a successful placement. Throughout the process, he was very professional and diligent in all matters. He is an extremely effective communicator and he addressed all my individual requirements in his dealings with the new employer. He would be the first recruiter I would contact if I was looking to further my career or fill a role.

James Gallagher, Lead Energy Trader at PrePowerPower (August 2017)


John Howe

I had the privilege to be contacted by John, that is the perfect example of someone who really is passionate about his job. Very professional and competent, always with a positive attitude and honest along all process, I really appreciated being into a career process lead singed by him. I would strongly recommend John Howe to be your mentor for a step forward to your career, you can see that he have experience in what he is doing and he listening your concerns and what is your goals. Thanks for your contact and your trust in me.

Vera Dias, Treasury Analyst, Re:Sources (August 2017)


Angela O'Donnell

This is your first quarter supplying to BAML and it has been successful. You guys are a pleasure to work with and the quality of candidates submitted is excellent - keep it up!

Claire Conroy, Business Partner (July 2017)


Mark Byrne

I am in touch to say many thanks to your agency and in particular to Mark for an outstanding job he did for me in placing me in a super role in the FMCG space. From the very start Mark was so thoroughly professional in his approach and in particular in his communications to me which were both very relevant, helpful and often! Mark offered, and I availed of, dry run presentations to him before I had final interviews and his feedback was an excellent prep for the real interview. He at all times used his insights into the clients needs to help focus and direct my approach and interview presentation. I cant say enough about how vital his skills were in assisting me to land the job which I am so thrilled to have gotten. I will certainly be recommending your agency to be used in any future recruitment needs we have.

Ray Holland, Sales Cosmetics (July 2017)


John Howe

Working with John has been a great experience for me. He was well organised, professional, and ensured me that my time is precious. He showed great passion for his work; he ensured me that he had my best interest at heart at all time. I will honestly recommend John for any recruitment need you may have or even just looking for advice on what your next step should be, he'll be happy to help you.

Michael Fasole, Fidelity Investments (July 2017)


John Howe

My experience of working with John was exceptional. He provided me with an incredible service while successfully securing me a new role within financial services sector. John's professionalism, guidance and extreme dedication was more than impressive in my job hunt. Highly recommended, well rounded, personal service!

Dominika Czajka, BNY Mellon (July 2017)


John Howe

Perfect professionalism and an obvious dedication to having his job done properly. I was working in financial services and was looking for new opportunities, John was very helpful and truly transparent and honest from the start. He helped me through the recruiting process and found me the perfect fit for me. I feel grateful for his work and I strongly recommend John and Brightwater as a whole. If I ever need to change job, I will definitely go back to him! Double thumbs up!

Eddy Fusco, Deutsche Bank (July 2017)


GDPR Breakfast Seminar

The seminar was very informative - and more importantly the content was very accessible for such a confusing subject! Thanks for organising.

Olwyn Downey - HR Manager, LK Shields Solicitors (June 2017)


GDPR Breakfast Seminar

Thank you for very interesting and relevant presentation this morning. Hearing the information described and contextualised by a key member of the Data Protection Commission gives greater understanding of the approach and application of the regulation.

Susan Naughton - ACII Chartered Insurance Practitioner, LCOI Head of Compliance (June 2017)



I just wanted to send you a note to say how absolutely amazing your staff are. From my first initial call about the job, my recruiter showed such a keen interest in getting to know about me - which is critical to placing someone in a job! She has been such a great support through the whole process in prepping me for interview, giving me tips, calling to ensure I was ok etc, honestly she has gone above and beyond and is definitely the reason I did so well and got offered the position. I am so thrilled and very excited about my new position and can’t thank youenough!

Sarah O’Reilly (June 2017)


Karyn Glennon

I would like to say thank you for all your help in finding me a new role. I have dealt with a few agents over the last couple of months, and I have to say, by far, you are the best and most helpful. Looking forward to my new beginning. Wishing you all the best for the future.

Irina Ringaitiene (May 2017)


Stephen Waters

I had your letter yesterday and really what a pleasant surprise it was! I just want to say thank you for believing in me, and for all your help and commitment during the interviews, it was really a pleasure for me to know you. I'm also looking forward to celebrate with you when I get in Dublin. I put the letter on my desk so every time I look at it, it just remind me how awesome you guys are :) Thank you and have a wonderful weekend,

Yassine Azzouz (April 2017)


Con Lam

I thought the need to bring to your attention the fantastic service I have recently had from a Mr Con Lam at the Brightwater in Belfast office. In the past, I have not been the biggest fan of recruitment agencies as they tend to want to simply register your detail on their books and then never call you back. You also find that just because you don't have a qualification they rule you out completely for the position. However, in the case with Brightwater and Con Lam, I found this to be totally the opposite. Con Lam went out of his way to keep me updated with opportunities once he found my CV online irrelevant of my qualifications and background. Con Lam made the effort to listen to me and understand my strengths and in no time at all managed to secure me two strong interviews at senior level with two companies that I would happily work with. My interviews required that I needed to travel from England to NI and at each time Con Lam called to make sure that I got there ok and then met with me each time to make sure that I was still happy with the position I was applying for, at no time was he concerned about his commissions and even took my advice when responding back to the companies in question, quite easily he could have pushed and upset both myself and the companies interviewing. Even when I had two fantastic offers on the table Con Lam was more concerned about me and that I took the best opportunity available to me and my family as I was relocating. Even at the final stage, there was a chance that it could of all fallen through because of a simple start date, yet again Con Lam was not concerned and assured me if this didn't happen there would be other opportunities. I can happily tell you that Brightwater have now secured me a senior position in a company that I am looking forward to beginning working for, and I am now looking forward to relocating my family back to NI and starting my new role in August. None of this would have been possible if it was not for such wonderful service that I received from one of your members of staff. I don't always go out of my way to write emails like this but at this moment in time, I strongly felt the need to bring to your attention what fantastic service I have been given by Brightwater and redeemed my confidence in your industry and I will most defiantly be recommending Brightwater.

Matthew Moss (March 2017)


Andrew Rowley & Cork

Carbery Food Ingredients Limited have worked with Brightwater on a number of difficult to fill technical and commercial roles. From the very start of the process Brightwater takes great care to clearly understand the role requirements and our company culture. They establish a real partnership approach from the outset and are just as focused as we are on getting the best candidate for the job. Andrew Rowley is extremely proactive and professional at every stage and his regular communication keeps all parties fully informed. We have been very happy with our experience with Brightwater and would have no hesitation in recommending them to any business.

Mike Larkin - Human Resources Manager, Carbery Food Ingredients Ltd. (February 2017)


Andrew Rowley

Having worked with Andrew and the Brightwater team during a fast and furious recruitment campaign for our Greenfield site, I can highly recommend the level of service I received. Andrew very quickly understood the type of candidate we were looking for, both calibre and fit. The calibre of candidates put forward was always high and the candidates' knowledge and prep for interview was always impressive.  However the best thing about working with Brightwater at that time was that they anticipated what you'd be looking for next, had candidates lined up and we're able to provide excellent market insights. They were an invaluable resource to me during that time.

Isuelt McLaughlin - HR Manager, Ornua (February 2017)


Andrew Rowley

Andrew was instrumental in helping me secure my new role as R&D Innovation Project Manager with Carbery Group. Brightwater were very helpful and informative from the start of the recruitment process and facilitated a seamless link between Carbery Group and the candidates in the process. Andrew and the team were extremely engaging and were excellent at detailing the nuances of the role being filled. It was clear that Brightwater had gone to great lengths to fully ascertain what exactly Carbery Group were looking for in their ideal candidate. A clear and detailed path for the recruitment process was detailed for the candidate which also facilitated the necessary timelines required by Carbery Group. Andrew and the team were most helpful with respect to queries around the company, the role advertised and expected roles and responsibilities and acted as an invaluable conduit for myself as a candidate. I would wholeheartedly recommend Andrew and Brightwater Recruitment Specialists as a partner in any recruitment process and I look forward to the opportunity of working with them further as part of my new role with Carbery Group.” 

Kevin Turner, R&D Innovation Project Manager - Carbery Group (February 2017)


Mary Lynch

Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say I’m delighted we successfully recruited for the role of Product Controller. It has been great to deal with Mary over the past few weeks. After initial discussions, Mary showed a good understanding of the candidate profile that would suit the role and Mars Ireland. In addition, she was very quick to flag risk around candidates when they were offered other roles. Mary has suggested coming in to meet us to review any opportunities to review how we could work in the case of future recruitment opportunities which is always welcome.

Louisa Brooks - Demand Planning Manager, Mars Multisales Europe (January 2017)


Michael Minogue

Michael has probably filled you in that we have just filled out Legal role, we got incredibly lucky and had to move at the speed of light between yesterday and today but unfortunately the role is now filled. I wanted to take this opportunity though to say that even though I was familiar with the brand, this was my first time working with Brightwater and I’ve been really impressed with the approach, the service and Michael’s efforts on this vacancy. He got exactly what we were looking for and had a CV within hours, I really liked his soft sell approach and would most definitely like to work with him again. So based on this experience, and thanks to Michael, I’ve asked him to send me on information with the intention that we might be able to partner again on future vacancies.

Aiveen Campbell - Associate Manager Talent Acquisition, Regeneron (January 2017)


Karyn Glennon

I am aware that perhaps it is when someone wants to complain that someone makes an effort to provide feedback - but as we near the end of the year, I wanted to explicitly indicate the exemplary work done by a member of your team. I find her extremely efficient, personable and great to work with. A good sense of humour but ability to deal with tough issues. Karyn has placed a number of fantastic temps with us here and knows each of her temps inside out. Some of the excellent temp staff Karyn has placed with us will convert to permanent contracts - something we are particularly delighted with. It's a pleasure to work with Karyn as our account manager and I look forward to working closely with her in the new year. A quality service! 

Aidan McGrath - Trinity College Dublin (December 2016)


Angela O'Donnell

No, thank you. You made the process easy. Luck forward to working with you in the future. Thanks for all the assistance. Cheers! 

Peter Barron - Boxever (December 2016)


Brightwater Group

Just wanted to drop a quick note of thank you to your Business Support team who recently assisted me during an interview process. I just wanted to say how much of a pleasure it was to work with them. As someone who is at this stage no stranger to the whole interview situation I can say without fear of contradiction that they made a stressful & difficult situation so much easier by her professional & helpful manner & I am very grateful for that. I am very thankful. 

Ita Matthews - Candidate (December 2016)


Brightwater Group

Aegon Ireland has been working with Brightwater for 14 years, over this time we've built up a strong relationship and consider them an extension to our team. When a recruitment need arises, Brightwater is the first recruitment consultancy we refer to. Their knowledge of the industry and more importantly, our needs as a company, is second to none. Their tacit knowledge of our company ensures we waste no time in recruiting the right people at the right time. My team consistently feedback positively about the Brightwater team, on their professionalism and approach to making the process as easy and successful as possible.

Emma Costello - Head of HR, Aegon Ireland (November 2016)


Estelle Davis

We have worked with Estelle Davis and Brightwater Executive for over 10 years now. A key part of our business strategy is the recruitment and retention of top talent and Estelle and Brightwater Executive have helped us achieve that. They have developed an in-depth knowledge of our business and culture over the years which has enabled them to consistently screen the market and put forward a shortlist of strong candidates. We are demanding and very particular as a client with a number of our placements being specialist roles which they were still able to deliver upon. They were also able to provide clear guidance on remuneration packages. I would have no hesitation in recommending Brightwater Executive and Estelle”.

John Calvert - CEO, BCP Asset Management (November 2016)


Louise Dooley

I just received your card in the post over the weekend. This was a pleasant surprise, a really great touch! Just want to thank you again for all your help in securing this position. From start to finish it was a great experience with Brightwater - will definitely be recommending yourself and Brightwater to family and friends!

Danielle Quinn (November 2016)


Estelle Davis

In an ultra competitive market where we rely on client service to differentiate ourselves, we value our culture and personal accountability as high as anything else. It is for this reason that we use Estelle Davis and the team at Brightwater Executive,  to help find the right candidate who will succeed in our environment. The nuances of the skills that we value are often not easily discernable and it takes a dedicated partner like Estelle and her team, to understand your business and find the right fit for both sides. We feel that they truly appreciate this and we have been delighted with them to date and will continue to use them in the future.

Mark Hedderman, CEO - Custom House Fund Services, Ireland (November 2016)


Emma Anglim

Thanks for all your help, especially at the search ended up happening at a  tricky time for me in the end. I started yesterday and so far everyone is very welcoming and friendly.  I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you, especially with the efforts put in with other places. Eversheds has a great reputation and I’m sure I will settle in just fine in no time.

Brónagh Sheridan - Eversheds (October 2016)


NI Annual Client Quiz 2016

I wanted to say thank you very much for an excellent night that was had by all of us at the quiz a few weeks ago.  As usual, it was a great night.  It’s just a shame we didn’t win this year!

Mark Thompson - Mills Selig (October 2016)


Conor Bannon

I just wanted to say how much I appreciate all of your help in finding me a position with Kone Ireland. I was a long time looking and I think this company is the right one for me going forward. Without your help I would still be looking. I look forward to the new chapter with them and eagerly await starting on Monday. Thanks again.

Jody Hanlon (October 2016)


Orla Brennan & Estelle Davis

I write this recommendation in my capacity as Chief Executive of the City Colleges Group of companies, which incorporates Progressive Education Limited (trading as the College of Progressive Education). Brightwater Recruitment was engaged in November 2015 to assist in the recruitment of a managing director for Progressive Education Limited. We had a limited budget, both in terms of the recruitment process and the salary available to the successful candidate. We had an exceptionally positive experience with Brightwater Recruitment. Team members Orla Brennan and Estelle Davis were enthusiastic, engaged, friendly and completely committed to the project from the outset. Having carried out a detailed analysis of our requirements and aspirations for the role in line with Progressive Education Limited’s strategic objectives, the team presented a long list of strong candidates which was then expertly reduced to a short list of five, any one of whom could, in my opinion, have met and indeed exceeded the job specification. By actively involving themselves in the minutiae of our business, and by continually engaging (on a sometimes daily basis) with our team, Brightwater Recruitment succeeded in identifying an excellent candidate who has already had a significant positive impact. No request was too onerous and the Brightwater team always made us feel that they were as invested in a successful outcome as we were.

Philip Burke (September 2016)


Orla Brennan

I found Brightwater Executive very accommodating and understanding in assisting me with the type of challenge I was looking for. The roles they identified and discussed with me were interesting and ultimately I feel my career is in a good place currently. With respect to my current role as Managing Director I believe a combination of my significant industrial management experience together with my leadership experience within the education sector was a perfect combination.

Paschal O’Leary (September 2016)


Marguerite Brahim

Thanks so much, you have been amazing and so helpful. Really appreciate it!

Olivia La Grange, YoLo (September 2016)


Tara Higgins

Thank you again for all your help - it has been an absolute pleasure working with you and you found me some excellent candidates and really took on board what I was looking for to fill the 2 roles.

Deirdre Lane, Financial Controller - ESP (September 2016)


Tara Higgins

Thank you so much for taking the time to come on-site today, it was really good to catch up and to meet you face to face for first time Tara! The brownies were a huge hit, they lasted all of 10 seconds, and were delicious, so thank you so much, that was so thoughtful of you. I want to talk to you about another potential I may have in the pipeline as of this eve! Natalie and Christoff were delighted to catch up with you, and both are singing your praises in terms of follow ups, personal touches and feeling that you are really invested, so thank you.

Catherine, Itron (September 2016)


Louise Dooley

I would like to put on record how grateful I am to you for all your help and counselling! I have received an amazing service from you and you are exceptional at your job. Please show this to your manager!

Anne-Marie Walsh

I have known Anne Marie for a number of years and when I decided to look at a career in a different industry she was the first person I reached out to. I had my eye on number of opportunities and Anne Marie was there to advise at each step, and she spent considerable time assisting in finding the right fit. This was done through a number of face to face meetings, a careful understanding of my career history, and suggesting a number of roles that I may not have necessary looked at initially. When it came to interview stage Anne Marie provided plenty of background and updates throughout and even sat through a dry run of  full management presentation that I had to give to the interview panel. I was subsequently offered the role and Anne Marie was involved through the negotiation stages up to the first day of commencement. We still keep in regular contact as now I will be looking at filling roles and I have no doubt that Anne Marie will be able to place the right candidate, and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her both to candidates and employers.

Paul Cash, Head of IT - Generali Link


Anne-Marie Walsh

I was recently placed by Anne Marie with an established international company setting up an operation in Dublin’s IFSC. I’ve known Anne Marie for a number of months while I was hunting for a new role. Anne Marie was immediately one of those rare recruiters who takes the time to understand her candidates, to understand what they are looking for in their next role and definitely not bombarding them with roles which are only tentatively appropriate.  Anne Marie went out of her way to meet with me initially in a suitable location and to understand my requirements. When my new opportunity arose, she was immediately able to explain the role and its match to my expectations. She understood the degree of fit and was clearly able to distinguish between my role and other roles being recruited for. Her understanding of the organisation, the corporate culture and the industry, together with her knowledge of the technical details of the role was central to me applying for the role when I would probably have not considered it under another recruiter. Throughout the relatively brief recruitment process Anne Marie was regularly in touch, both with myself and the company, advising on progress and providing valuable feedback. I have dealt with a number or recruitment companies over the last six months and the experience with a number of them was less than impressive. The support and service received from Anne Marie was of the highest professional standard and I would have no hesitation in recommending both her and Brightwater to other employers and candidates.

Bobby Davison, Director of Data Intelligence Centre - UHG


Niamh McKernan & Cork Office

Good afternoon David. I’m dropping you a note to say how impressed I am with a recent experience through your Cork office. The recruitment and selection process is one of the critical areas where I work with clients – to me its critical nature is often overlooked or underestimated and my clients use me to ensure there is an optimum result. On a recent assignment I was contacted by Niamh McKernan - the contact was done very professionally and effectively and led me to return her call. Normally, based on past experiences, I steer clear of recruitment agencies so it pleasantly surprised me and I responded accordingly. Niamh and I had a very frank discussion of the required candidate profile and the agreement that she would only send me candidates who fitted the profile (unlike many agencies who simply send CV’s in the hope that one will fit). She kept to her word and sent me a select number of candidates one of whom was selected by my client but alas the candidate went elsewhere. Although, our interactions didn’t result in a placement on this occasion I have given Niamh’s details to both business contacts as well as candidates looking for career progression opportunities. In a world where it is so much easier for us to complain, I thought it important to drop you this note . And Niamh will be to the forefront of my mind when the next appropriate opportunity arises. Please feel free to use this recommendation publicly – I am very happy to do so.

Paul Mc Menamy - Nova Innovative Consulting (July 2016)


Marguerite Brahim 

That’s great thank you for your help on the role and for a great turnaround!

Caroline Byrne, Project Manager - Laya Healthcare (July 2016)


Marguerite Brahim 

Thanks for your faith in me!!! Thanks again for all your help and just want to take this opportunity to let you know that on my nearly 30 years of working, I never (besides this one) got a job through an agency. Your work, dedication and support during the process was second to none, and what made the difference in this instance. The way you handled this process was exemplary of “how it should be done”, and I would encourage your company to use your skills to train others, as generally speaking, it is hard to find recruiters nowadays that would put such dedication, time and effort  into the process. You have demonstrated that sheer perseverance, mixed with following the right steps of interviewing and presenting, are key to capturing the role. Let me know if there is anything else you need from me and I really hope that we will be able to use your support in the future.

Gonzalo Duboy (July 2016)


Marguerite Brahim

Marguerite, thank you again for your reactivity and your support. We are happy to welcome on board Catherine on Monday! Thanks a lot Marguerite. It was a pleasure to work with you.

Elisabeth Le Mezo & Anne Laure Nicolas - Itron (July 2016)


Marguerite Brahim

I would love to meet you again, regardless of the outcome, and thank you in person for all that you have done to help me. You are by far the best recruiter I have dealt with in Ireland, you are so dynamic and savvy, I am loving working with you! Let me know if you can find time, if not I will call you to chat anyway.

Joanne Harrison - ALPS (July 2016)


Cork Office

Many thanks to all the staff in Brightwater in Cork for their help in securing the candidate for this position. Both Niamh and Eimear are a great advertisement for your company and it was a pleasure working with them.

Frank Kenny, MD - Charles Tennant Ireland (July 2016)


Nigel O’Leary

Nigel has secured 3 senior level roles with DePuy, who we haven’t worked with before, as a result of a successful partnership with Vistakon, who we also hadn’t worked with before. This was due to a recommendation from Nigel’s contact in Vistakon to her counterpart in DePuy.

Aiveen Campbell



Credit goes to you. You have been by far the best recruitment professionals I have come across till date. I really appreciate your hard work and dedication. Thanks again!

Zahir Khan (July 2016)


Tara Higgins

I really appreciate the help with this the last few weeks and can’t get over how consistent you are, I’ve worked with various agencies the last few months but you have by far stood out and really appreciated you keeping in touch through out this interview process.

Siobhán Foley - VoiceSage (July 2016)


Niamh McKernan

Hopefully we'll have some luck with a favorable decision but regardless of the outcome I want to say I'm extremely grateful for all your support and guidance; you really are an outstanding professional and leave other recruiters for dust. Feel free to pass that sentiment on to your boss if you wish :)

Marguerite Brahim

I'm so delighted with this news!!! This was the role that just felt right from the very start, and every interview I was only more convinced, so I'm thrilled to be the final choice! I'm excited to work with Itron, Elisabeth, Chantelle and the team in Cork, I think it's going to be a very strong partnership and I can't wait to start! Thank you for all your support and for being so upfront and keeping in touch right through the process, you've been a huge part of this for me and I really do appreciate it. Many thanks!

Thank you for all your help with this hiring process which is much appreciated by all in Cork Chamber. Thanks to you also, you did an excellent job in sourcing very relevant candidates for this role.

Doreen Freeman - Insight Solutions (June 2016)


Tara Higgins

Ideally when you need a new career challenge, applying for multiple jobs online is not always going to be a prompt outcome, this how I met Tara my genius aligner. I had the pleasure to talk to her and build a strong relationship, she knows that you're also a human, not a robot. This is not rocket science for her to understand that talent have different skills no matter how much you thrive under pressure to look for this new job, you need to mix and match with colleagues / management that will suit you! Tara is recklessly efficient, I was particularly impressed by her ability to approach clients so professionally, she kept a clear and simple manner/communication towards me and also her time management was effortlessly consistent. I had the pleasure of knowing Tara and she would be a true asset for any future position required technologies, finance and people. She knows how to browse for the right candidate and she has an edge in the market and comes with my wholehearted recommendation.

Manuel C. Figueiredo, Senior Accounts Receivable Clerk - Itron (June 2016)


Michael Minogue

I have had the pleasure of working with Michael on a search for a new team member for the Employment Team here. With Michael's great work and assistance, we have just secured a new employee who will join us later in the summer. Michael was an absolute pleasure to deal with & he listened to the brief I gave to him (which not all recruiters do!), produced the right candidate, and was extremely professional, efficient and pleasant to deal with at all times. Richard had already told me that Michael would get the job done and he certainly did! Hope to see you soon.

Jennifer Cashman, Partner - Ronan Daly Jermyn (June 2016)


Karyn Glennon and Team

I just wanted to write a quick note to say that I have dealt with both Karyn Glennon and the temps team over the last 2 years and though I have dealt with many different recruitment agents have found both of them to be two of the best I've ever dealt with. They are both such pleasant people to deal with. They always had time to take my calls and chat to me on how I was doing with my job search and even if they couldn't take my calls they would always take the time to phone me back. Most recently Karyn was successful in getting me a new position with Lloyds Pharmacy which I was very grateful for and she was so professional, caring and considerate to deal with. As a result of this I have already been recommending my friends to both Karyn and Sarah and have been praising them highly.

Olga Maguire (May 2016)


Louise Dooley

I reached out to Louise earlier this year as I was looking to relocate to Belfast & from the get go she was fantastic! Louise really took the time to understand exactly what it was that I was looking for & ensured that opportunities put to me for consideration truly suited me & my aspirations. Ultimately, in the end Louise matched me with a role that I believe offers a great partnership in terms of employee & employer. Overall, Louise really helped make the decision to relocate & find a role such a pain free experience, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Louise to both client & candidate.

Tara Higgins

I would just like to give a review for one of your recruiters that I recently had contact with regarding a role in Cork. I dealt with Tara Higgins and I can honestly say she was fantastic in every step of the way for the role. Unfortunately I did not take the role but I was offered the role thanks to Tara's confidence in me and her ability to sell me to the prospective employer. She instructed me on how to secure the role and also made sure i was prepared with ease for the interview. I will remain in contact with Tara for other roles in the future and no doubt she will secure more clients with her very approachable personality.

Brian Fleming, Accounts Assistant (April 2016)


Tara Higgins

Meeting Tara was an absolute pleasure, she is a real people's person, her enthusiasm and professionalism are outstanding. Tara arranged a fantastic opportunity in finance for me in record time. I highly recommend her and wish her the very best in her career.

Nathalie Bellamy, AppleCare Advisor - Apple (April 2016)


Marguerite Brahim

Fantastic recruitment agency. Marguerite Brahim, from the office in Cork, should win your recruiter of the year award! And if you don't have such a thing, you should start it and award her the first. She is amazing, professional, helpful and very genuine. She will go above and beyond to prepare you for an interview and follow up afterwards. I don't know where my road will lead me, but I do know she's the best recruiter I've been in contact with, and I've been in contact with many!

Malina Finnerty, Customer Services Associate (April 2016)


Tara Higgins

I met Tara at Brightwater, she was helping me find a job in Cork. She was very kind to me and she worked really hard in order to reach my goals. Her enthusiasm gave me energy and self-confidence. She also gave advice how to refresh my CV. I got a job in 2 weeks, which is amazing.

Nora Emese, Accounts Assistant (March 2016)


Tara Higgins

To work with Tara was very pleasant. She worked very hard and ensured that I got a good result. She always got back to me straight away and approached me in a professional and very positive manner. I can recommend her highly and would work with her again.

Cathal O Donnell

I would just like to say that you have been an excellent help to me in this process. You have consistently kept in contact with me throughout. You have been very professional and also very natural. I felt you had the ability to connect with me on a personal and professional level and this made me feel very comfortable going forward for interview. The insight and guidance you provided to me was invaluable and I couldn't have done it without you. I had a slightly skewed opinion on recruitment agencies before this but I must say you have changed my opinion completely and I would recommend you to anyone. Thank you for all your work and I am very grateful to have had your help.

Ultan Carolan - Sign & Digital (December 2015)


Brightwater Group

I cannot speak highly enough of Brightwater and their expertise. After being employed with the same company for a lot of years, they provided me with an extremely friendly, professional and caring service to which I feel lucky to have been party to. After taking time to get to know me, the consultant provided me with great opportunities and invaluable guidance from start to the end process and throughout and now I am placed in a job that provides me with great prospects and opportunities. I would have no hesitation in recommending Brightwater's professional yet personal supportive approach. Thank you so much for helping me secure my new job.

Jacqui McKenna, Accountant - Sherwood Systems (December 2015)


Brightwater Group

I've dealt with 4 agencies in the last month and Brightwater was in a league of their own; fantastic. I have already recommended others to contact Brightwater due to the professionalism that the team displayed. They provided a professional service that enabled me to progress my career at the right time. They were only a phone call away for advice, help and guidance. Professional from start to finish, very refreshing.

Louise Gray, Payroll Manager (December 2015)


Brightwater Group

Brightwater provided an excellent professional and friendly service and I couldn't fault their work in any way. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and would definitely work with them again should I need to source staff or be looking for alternative employment. The service provided by the team at Brightwater was second to none. I was only advised about the most relevant roles in the type of companies I was interested in working for, and was always fully briefed ahead of attending interviews. I am now working for a great company thanks to them. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Nikki Dornan, Executive PA - TG Eakin (December 2015)


Hugh McCarthy

As my first day with Workday fast approaches, I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for all of your help and support throughout the process. I've talked to people who have applied directly and having done so, I think I'm glad to have had you there as a sounding board. Likewise, I've talked to people who have applied through other recruiters and when they inevitably felt they'd fumbled part of an on-site interview, the response they got tended to be "Oh, s**t..." rather than the more nuanced and thoughtful approach that you displayed when I was concerned. For all of this, I thank you.

Dale Dunlea, Senior Software Engineer - Workday (December 2015)


Karyn Glennon

For the most part I have had quite negative experiences with recruitment agents. Two, however, have been amazing, one of which being Karyn Glennon. She is kind, friendly, efficient, honest, professional, a real go getter, bubbly and really cares about her clients and goes above and beyond. After only one interview through BrightStar I seem to have landed the perfect job thanks to Karyn.

Anna Eugenia Cras - The Wellington Eye Clinic (November 2015)


Brightwater Group

I just wanted to let you know of the great work the Temps team is doing for the company. I applied for an Office Assistant role on a website and within half hour a consultant had called me back for a chat. She was so nice and friendly and asked the 'right' question in what you want from your recruiter. I met with her and she was a delight to meet and speak to. The team was very professional and made sure they knew exactly what type of role I wanted, then came up with a role that was outside Dublin (Navan) and if asked if that suited me, which it did. The consultant called me back the next day to say I was successful in an interview which was on Friday. She also sent me through relevant information that would be helpful for me in the interview and give me a few tips and hints that made me feel at ease. On the Friday morning she remembered to drop me an email to say best of luck. By Friday evening she was calling me to say I had the job and I started Monday. I was delighted. She was quick to respond to my emails and calls, but also showing it was important to get the best role for me. The role she has offered to me is exactly what I wanted and it's perfect for me. I started my first day with Gererali PanEurope on Monday 16th November and Brightwater even sent me a message on the morning wishing me good luck. No matter what time of the day she was on call for me. Not only on my first day, she dropped me a friendly text twice to see if all is going well and if I am happy in the role - she has showed service like never before. I cannot be more thankfully to the team and I just thought as you, as their manager, you might appreciate the feedback.

Caroline Simpson - Generali (November 2015)


Lyn White

I just wanted to say that Brightwater has been doing some great work on Treasury/Finance roles for Emma (which I picked up as Emma is on leave now and the team has been very patient/helpful to bring some offers to close) and from my side (FSC) Lyn White has been great to deal with on a recent QA role (she just closed this for us as well) - we do appreciate your teams support.

Anthony McGrane - MetLife (November 2015)


Emma Anglim and Team

I would like to thank you all in your efforts in securing me a wonderful position here. After dealing with other agencies in Ireland I was starting to think I was never going to find a company who listened to my needs, the type of role I was after and one who didn't try to push me into accepting any role just to get a position filled. You, Karyn and the team exceeded my expectations greatly and made the process seem painless and easy. I can see your point of difference is your caring staff and customer service.

Larrissa Holdsworth - Sherry FitzGerald (November 2015)


Brightwater Group

I would highly recommend Brightwater - they were a great support to me while I was looking for work and kept me up to date at all times. They always kept me in mind when a job became available in the marketplace and I found that they worked hard on my behalf.

Roisin Rooney, Accountant (November 2015)


Brightwater Group

My experience of working with Brightwater was second to none. From the first time I met with the recruiter, I was afforded top class support, excellent and informed advice, and placed with the perfect opportunity for me. Every step of the way, a helping hand was there for guidance and advice. I would thoroughly recommend Brightwater to anyone seeking new opportunities.

Samantha Rogers, Business Analyst (November 2015)


Brightwater Group

I would recommend Brightwater to anyone as the staff are very friendly and always willing to help and find the perfect job for you. They were always there to answer any questions I had and knew exactly what they were talking about. My experience with Brightwater was brilliant.

Amy Beckett, Payroller (November 2015)


Brightwater Group

I dealt with Brightwater and in my opinion they areone of the most professional teams in their field. They had excellent attention to detail, always timely in responding to queries and had the ability to match my skill set with the right opportunities.

Colette Eklund, Receptionist (November 2015)


Cathal O Donnell

My name is Paul McEntee and I have recently been put forward for interview by one of your colleagues Cathal O Donnell. Just to say it has been a very pleasant and refreshing experience to deal with both Cathal and your company. I feel I have been treated as a customer and the level of support and guidance from Cathal has been exceptional. I have used the word refreshing unfortunately a lot of your colleagues in other agencies treat you as a number and it is refreshing to be treated otherwise. Hopefully I will be successful in my job application but even if I am not it has been a good and learning experience working with your team. Best of luck to you and your team.

Paul McEntee, Production Supervisor (October 2015)


Cathal O Donnell

Thank you for all your support in securing the 6 month position at Met Life, your stewardship was outstanding and I really appreciate your huge support. Thank you.

Marie-Therese Swan - Met Life (October 2015)


Brightwater Group

Going out for something nice to eat tonight, I think! I honestly couldn't have done it without you. You inspire confidence because you show people how to realise their positive traits and their best qualities, which i guess is the best thing you can do as a recruitment consultant! Thanks for everything.

Emma Habington - Damovo (October 2015)


Brightwater Group

Brightwater are a fantastic agency who treat candidates extremely well and have utmost consideration for career ambitions and requirements and present suitable options accordingly. They're friendly and help to make sure a role is right before proceeding and keep in regular contact along the way. I am happy to work with Brightwater knowing they're looking out for me as well as their client to ensure a mutually acceptable outcome.

Nathan Boal, Technical Architect (October 2015)


Brightwater Group

Brightwater were very professional and took time to understand my skill set before putting me forward for relevant roles. Their professionalism and commitment helped me land a role that I am currently really enjoying.

Finbar McGrath, Credit Controller (October 2015)


Brightwater Group

Brightwater's consultant was friendly, efficient and helpful. I was successful in my job application, and I feel that Brightwater contributed to this success.

Peter Jameson, Document Checker (October 2015)


Brightwater Group

Very friendly, efficient and professional service. My recruitment consultant kept me informed throughout every stage of the process until I secured a job offer, providing relevant support and advice when necessary. Excellent service, highly recommended.

Christopher Higgins, Revenue Assistant (October 2015)


Brightwater Group

I found the process with my consultant to be extremely professional from start to finish. The initial meeting was comfortable and in no way rushed - offering me the chance to determine exactly the type of role I was interested in. They shared details with me of positions that were suitable - rather than a blanket message of anything the agency had on their books - it felt personal. Once they had organised the interview for a potential role, they kept in regular contact with me in advance of the interview and afterwards. They telephoned me the day after the interview with news of the job offer and liaised back and forth to finalise the details of acceptance. Clearly the consultant took the time to determine an appropriate role! I would highly recommend the service from the team.

Tammy McAlpine, Senior Administrator (October 2015)


Brightwater Group

Having dealt with other agencies in the past I had developed a pre-conceived idea of the recruitment industry and its processes. This was quickly turned on its head when I had the pleasure of dealing with Brightwater who was open, honest and a true professional throughout the process. The main difference in my opinion was the recruiters ability to listen to my needs and understand where I wanted to be in my career. I am delighted to have been placed in a role with a company that is perfect for me and I look forward to many happy and challenging years to come in this position.

Oliver Phelan, Sales & Marketing Manager (September 2015)


Brightwater Group

I think Brightwater is great! Energetic, enthusiastic and passionate about their job. The positive attitude is contagious! They train you on how to face interviews, increasing your self-confidence.

Francesca Bartolone, HR Manager - Bookassist (September 2015)


Brightwater Group

The consultants at Brightwater are excellent recruiters whose years of professional experience shone through during my regular interactions with them. They continue to place candidates in environments which are the most suitable to their skill set. I would recommend Brightwater without hesitation and I look forward to working with them in the future.

Niall Curry, HR Specialist - Zurich Insurance PLC (September 2015)


Brightwater Group

I picked Brightwater specifically following my own personal experience of working with them, and I found to be really thoroughly professional.

Dermot Brennan, HR Manager - Essentra Packaging (September 2015)


Brightwater Group

This is the first time I have used Brightwater and, I can honestly say if the need arose in the future I would most definitely use them again. The professionalism shown by the recruiters was second to none. I would most definitely recommend them.

Andrew Lowe - Matthew Algie (September 2015)


Brightwater Group

Brightwater was extremely professional, friendly and efficient. They made me feel very comfortable with the whole process. They always rang at the right time and was always reassuring and helpful. Without their help, tips and expertise I don't believe I would have performed as well in the interviews. Theywere extremely knowledgeable which put me at ease about the whole process

Sarah Kirk, Marketing Administrator (September 2015)


Cathal O Donnell

During the application process I can say without fear or favour that Cathal was the best recruitment professional I have ever dealt with. His work ethic was exemplary throughout the process, he always returned calls and followed up all necessary questions. He left nothing to chance. A professional supply chain person. He is a credit to your organisation and himself a model employee. I can only hope that in my future career that I work with someone half as good as Cathal.

Darragh Dunne (September 2015)


Brightwater Group

The Brightwater team was in contact every step of the way, constantly checking in seeing how my job search was progressing. Terrific customer service. Always responded to emails and make you feel like a person not a resume quota. Very happy with Brightwater and will use their services again.

Monique Croucher, Education Services Coordinator (August 2015)


Brightwater Group

My experience with Brightwater was very positive. Brightwater are a professional recruitment company who go the extra mile for anyone applying for their advertised posts. The Engineering team was very helpful and professional throughout the process of applying and obtaining a new job through Brightwater.

George Spiers, Service Desk Engineer (August 2015)


Brightwater Group

Brightwater helped me through every stage of the recruitment process when I applied to join Baker & McKenzie. The team's support was invaluable, and their professionalism shone through at all times. They are extremely knowledgeable and very approachable, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Brightwater to anyone who is looking for the next step in their career.

Wayne Lewis, Business Development Manager (August 2015)


Louise Dooley

Louise Dooley had been my contact throughout my time with Brightwater. I had met Louise initially for my interview and Louise has been great at answering any questions and queries I have had. She has always kept me up to date with everything and is just a lovely person to talk to. I have been employed through various agencies since I graduated from university and I can honestly say that Brightwater has been the best one. I have had no issues whatsoever and I think employees are always treated fairly. Many thanks for helping me find employment and opportunities to allow me to develop my skills further! Would definitely recommend you to others!

Rachel Ferguson, Health & Safety Officer (July 2015)


Brightwater Group

A Brightwater recruitment consultant contacted me through Linked In with regard to my current role. Throughout the recruitment process they were approachable, friendly and honest. We had an enjoyable meeting to determine if I was a suitable candidate and if the role met my expectations. Throughout the process they respected counter job offers and behaved utterly professionally which was a large reason I pursued my current role. I am currently in an exciting role I enjoy and have to thank Brightwater for that.

Michael Ennis, Business Development Manager (June 2015)


Karyn Glennon

I honestly could not have asked for more support in relation to interview prep and Karyn going over and above a "normal" recruitment person. She has continued supporting me, regularly checking in and if I feel comfortable. If I had a problem I could lift the phone and give her a call. I would have no hesitation in recommending Karyn to anyone and have done. I had an exceptional customer experience! Thank you.

Clare Lambert, Candidate (May 2015)


Brightwater Group

I met Brightwater when I applied for a position with Baker & McKenzie. Once I spoke with the recruiter, the application process was very smooth and wholly positive. I found them to be open and approachable, as well as extremely responsive to queries, providing feedback when asked and being honest in their responses. I highly recommend Brightwater.

Katherine Leyden, Legal Content Editor(May 2015)


Brightwater Group

I recommend Brightwater as very professional and personable recruitment consultant agency. They made the whole process very easy and understandable through communication and organisation.

Paul Wilson, Quality & Process Manager - Baker & McKenzie (April 2015)


Brightwater Group

Is finding a new job ever an enjoyable experience? It is if you work with Brightwater. They understood clearly the type of role I was looking for and quickly (and, I'm pleased to say, successfully) matched me with a progressive company in an exciting role. Brightwater has a hands on approach when it comes to help you move your career forward; their guidance and support were much appreciated and genuinely helpful in guiding me through the interview process. I would highly recommend Brightwater Recruitment.

Louise McVicker, Campaign Manager - Texthelp (April 2015)


Brightwater Group

Dedicated and tenacious, Brightwater's recruiters will go the extra mile to find the right candidate. Always enthusiastic and optimistic. Takes the time to fully understand the company culture and the role in order to find the right fit for both candidate and company. I would have no hesitation in recommending Brightwater.

Emily Nicoll, Group Head of Marketing - Texthelp (April 2015)


Brightwater Group

My recruiter was an honest, reliable and dedicated person, who maintained fantastic lines of communication with me throughout my job search. She responded positively and rapidly to any queries/concerns which I had. I would highly recommend her, and will be contacting her in the first instance should I require her services again.

Lauren Taylor - Davy (March 2015)


Brightwater Group

Thank you so much for all your help. You have been amazing from day one and while every one of my colleagues were complaining about the agencies they worked for, I was just feeling so lucky to be working for Brightwater. Thanks again to you and your colleagues.

Aicha Sellam - Caterpillar (February 2015)


Brightwater Group

Brightwater provided fantastic service and support during the recent recruitment process I was involved with. The recruiters were professional and responsive through all aspects of the process, even happy to come into work early to assist me! They were efficient and proactive through all stages of the recruitment process, keeping me fully updated. I would strongly recommend Brightwater to any professional who is seeking other employment.

Fiona Rooney, Client Relationship Manager and Edelle McGinn, Client Relationship Manager, Law in Context (January 2015)


Emma Anglim

Many thanks to Emma for the guidance in exploring my next career move. I came away with a great sense of professionalism and competency both on her part and on the part of BrightStar. I would definitely have no hesitation in recommending BrightStar as a recruiter.

Catherine Mulligan (January 2015)


Brightwater Group

Brightwater is an excellent recruitment agency with great communication and staff that are always happy to help with any questions.

Janice Martin, Technical Author - CEM Systems (January 2015)


Brightwater Group

Please pass on our thanks to the team who did a fantastic job at the recent BCS CV and interview preparation workshop. Their presentation style and the way they answered Q&A was very professional and the feedback from attendees was excellent. Looking forward to next year already.

Paul Hanna, Chair - BCS Belfast Branch (December 2014)


Brightwater Group

Thank you so much for all your help, just when I thought it was mission impossible you found Nicola! Thanks a mill for all your work.

Neringa Stasiunaite, Customer Care Team Leader - Keelings Farm Fresh (November 2014)


Emma Anglim

Just a quick note to thank you so much for placing me here in Unity. I've had the best four and a half weeks and I'm really sad to be leaving. It's such a lovely company, everyone has been so welcoming. I've learnt so much during this short time and I know it will stand to me in the future so thanks for giving me this opportunity.

Aifric Connolly (October 2014)


Brightwater Group

I would like to extend my personal thanks for your commitment, support and outstanding professionalism in making this not only an enjoyable recruitment process but also a successful one as well. Your attention to detail, drive and energy definitely played a major part in my introduction and appointment with this fantastic employer. Actually "employer" doesn't seem right, more a fantastic family. You are a very valuable asset to your company and they're extremely fortunate to have you. With immense gratitude yours sincerely,

Herb Parker, Kainos Project Manager (September 2014)


Brightwater Group

Thank you so much for all your help, just when I thought it was mission impossible you found Nicola! Thanks a mill for all your work.

Neringa Stasiunaite - Keelings Farm Fresh (September 2014)


Brightwater Group

I highly recommend Brightwater as a very professional and extremely competent consultant who keeps in touch on a regular basis. They were successful in placing me initially in a temporary role to tide me over last year, and now in a permanent position which I hadn't been actively looking for. I am very grateful as this now looks like a perfect match both for me and my new employer, WD Irwin's.

Pat McNulty, Cost Accountant - WD Irwin's (August 2014)


Brightwater Group

Brightwater assisted us recently with the Senior Auditor role and recently filled the role for us. This year we found it very difficult to fill the Senior Auditor role (it has been opened since January). I was impressed with the consultant's knowledge of the market, honest feedback they provided us with on candidates, which proved they were really focused on cultural and team fit as opposed to just getting CV's across and meeting targets. Whilst a number of agencies provided us with CV's over the past number of months, Brightwater clearly demonstrated a deep knowledge of the Audit market and provided us with a number of strong CV's for the role. Having worked with recruiters who recruit in the Audit market, I can say that the consultants at Brightwater are some of the stronger recruiters I have worked with over the past number of years. I have already thanked them for their hard work and I hope you can echo my sentiments in your next performance meeting with the team.

Elaine McMahon, HR Business Partner - RSA Insurance (August 2014)


Brightwater Group

I worked with Brightwater from both sides of the recruitment process and found them to be very professional, knowledgeable, and understanding of both the applicants and the employer's needs. I would have no problem in recommending Brightwater to any business as a trusted recruitment advisor and to any professional seeking assistance when applying for a career change.

Darren Deehan, Business Development Manager - Injixo (August 2014)


Brightwater Group

Just to let you know that I got the job in Andor yesterday. I am happy with the role and salary package, and feel the responsibilities that come with it will be very good experience for me. This will give me a better position from which to progress when the time and opportunity is right. Thanks for your help, and certainly keep me on your list, for the future. I found you very helpful, pleasant and professional to talk to, so Brightwater will be top on my list to contact!

Rachel Burton


Brightwater Group

Having used Brightwater over the years from 2010 to find agency employment, I have found them to be helpful, efficient and highly skilled. On any occasion that I have worked for them they expertly matched my personality to, not only the role, but the company. They only sent me for roles that would suit me and roles that they knew I would complement, unlike other agents that I have used who just send candidates to "fill" the post. Brightwater are professional and have a can do, customer focused attitude and is the type of employer that a candidate can approach and be honest with, leading to not only a long standing positive employment for the candidate, but in all of my cases a positive and long lasting relationship with the employers! I would have no hesitation in recommending Brightwater, from registration to placement they had a methodical and consistent approach to the task in hand, which was to ultimately place the candidate in a position where both the employer and the temp were satisfied.

Cushla Flynn (July 2014)


Hugh McCarthy

Hugh is the best recruiter that I have ever met! He provided me with resources that helped gain a greater insight into the area I wanted to go into. Which in turn made the interview easier as I knew a lot about the job I was applying for. When you work with Hugh he only puts you forward for roles you are suitable for. He provided me with an incredible service that is second to none. For a reliable, considerate service, with the recruiter who genuinely care about your application, I would look no further than Hugh's agency.

Ling Wang, DW & BI Developer - Paddy Power (July 2014)


Brightwater Group

I've been hugely impressed with Brightwater and in particular by your response following our initial meeting with your follow up calls advising me of progress in sourcing suitable opportunities for me. I think it was less than two weeks after meeting the recruiter that I met GDC! I certainly would recommend Brightwater to anyone that was in my situation and I'd be happy to assist Brightwater with my endorsement.

Edward Lockhart, Financial Controller - GDC (June 2014)


Brightwater Group

I met with Brightwater in February 2014. This was my first encounter with a recruitment consultancy as I had been in continuous employment for most of my career. They made me feel at ease and worked with me in the introduction meeting. Brightwater was very prompt at finding me a suitable placement and supported me fully up to, during the interview process and finally getting me a secure placement at ESP. I was working through Brightwater for 13-14 weeks until I was successfully placed with ESP. They have been outstandingly helpful and has been a pleasure to work with. Very kind and professional from start to finish. If I have the unfortunate circumstances of requiring another job I will most certainly, without hesitation, be in contact with Brightwater in the future.
