My first interactions with the recruitment company were a little up and down. I applied for a role and didn't receive updates. I had to be proactive. It's a good job I was persistent or I wouldn't have been put forward for the role in this first place. I wasn't working with Dervla at that stage. Once the official interview process started, the experience was really good. Dervla has been very supportive and responsive and managed all my questions and queries with care.

Dervla and Jen were very professional and knowledgeable about the position and the position requirements. They were both pleasant and helpful in all interactions.

Overall, my recruitment experience was pretty good (primarily due to the speed of the process), however I was disappointed by two particular parts of that process. - I believe that Dervla forgot to email my referees and then claimed that she was waiting on my referees when I made a follow up email inquiry re my contract. - The 4 weekly pay cycle was an unexpected shock - I have always been paid weekly for contract work.

Dervla is a passionate, respectful, attentive and valuable consultant. I am very grateful to be working with Dervla.

Dervla is a confident and target driven recruitment professional who listens carefully to employees needs and requirements. It was my pleasure working with her during this recruitment process. She handled everything professionally and her expertise in this field resulted in a favourable outcome for my career development.

Dervla is professional, friendly and helpful. I appreciated her guidance, support and efforts. She really seems to care about her recruits.

Always available and willing to help, works through the details of the role and asks questions and submits high quality candidates

I think Dervla is a asset to the organisation. She constantly provides support and feedback during the interviews process then during ongoing discussions. Taking on this assignment on was made pleasant by Dervla support to the point of accepting a lower hourly rate.

Dervla has been fabulous, from advocating for me to keeping me updated throughout the process, and ensuring that I was happy with everything. It's been great to work with a recruiter who treats you as a valued candidate rather than a number. Thanks Dervla!

Dervla has been responsive and very helpful in my first contracting gig. Thanks again!

Hello Geoff, I have nothing but praise for this individual. From the moment I applied for the position which I have just secured, Dervla has been in Coms with me throughout. If there is no news, she informs you ''No news yet'', a trait I have found lacking in most other recruiters. With her lovely Irish brogue and engaging manner, coupled with an infectious enthusiasm to succeed in placing you, it is daily highlight of one's day receiving her calls. I have the greatest pleasure in writing this testimonial and endorsing this young Lady, a true professional.

I like the service provided by Dervla, she has helped me in each step. She has given me brief clarification about my role and responsibility at work place and process my file nicely. I would like to say thanks to The Recruitment Company and Dervla specially for her smart work. Thanks

Yes Dervla is very pleasant and sounded very positive. Gave me a lot of confidence during the entire process. She also got back to me very quickly with all my queries and updates from my new employer!

Dervla was professional, supportive, and generally helpful. Sometimes it seemed her actions were a bit more reactive - but I put that down to the job itself being a bit last minute more than her abilities.

Dervla is super friendly and supportive.

Hi, Constant feedback and keeping in touch was exceptional. Most of time one hears from the recruitment company or HR department only at the critical stage (when one got the interview appointment or a job) while Dervla and Amanda kept in touch all the way through the process Making it so much less stressful (well job search is always stressful lol). Generally, I had much better experience dealing with The Recruitment Company then when dealing with other Recruitment companies)

Dervla is one of my favourite recruiters. She is professional, friendly and competent. I highly recommend her.

Love her irish accent. I will definitely forward her to anyone i know if they every require honesty in a sincere recruiter. SHE IS AWESOME 😊 🌸💐

First time dealing with Dervla for me although I have been with Contractor Central for 5 years now. My experience with Dervla was exceptional because of the speed and accuracy that my resquests have been dealt with thus far, Derval is effecient and very approachable, in the short amount of time I have been liaising with Dervla she has been fantastic.

Dervla was great! She prepped me well and was informative & supportive all the way. I am very grateful for all she has done for me.

I've been dealing with recruiters for a long time on both the client side & as a candidate. Dervla stands out from the crowd in a huge way. She's exceptionally personable, funny, lovely & wonderful to deal with. And she doesn't miss a trick with all the details. A big asset for your company I would say.

The recruitment process was seamless & pain free! I loved how Dervla kept me informed of 'next steps' & was easily reached to answer any questions I had. She was professional & friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend TRC to anyone looking for work :).

Dervla is amazing person, she is so professional, supportive and organised. She is always responding to my inquiries and answering my phone calls even during weekends.

I have had a great experience in getting a job through Dervla. She helped me to prepare for interview and gave me really good tips on how to dress up well for the interview and how to crack some interview questions. The recruitment procedure took hardly two days and I got the job! I really appreciate the efforts that Dervla had put in to recommend me for XXXXXXX :)

Dervla has been an absolute pleasure to work with! She has been extremely prompt with getting on top of all requests, and has established a very friendly and transparent relationship. Very happy.

I find Dervla to be very friendly, engaging, dependable and high in integrity. Furthermore, I have been consistently impressed with Dervla`s attitude since the first day she contacted me for a position at XXXX. During the time that she has helped me with the recruitment process, I found her very effective, intelligent and hard-working. She follows up and is professional with her communications. Throughout the whole process, she was polite, professional and pleasant! I definitely recommend Dervla as a Recruitment Consultant. I’m sure that her efficiency will help other candidates to find a good job and also to have this important support that I had. Thank you so much! Note: My request is and would highly appreciate by weekly payments instead of monthly. Many thanks in return.
