How do you find trusted recruitment agencies in Ireland? You take a hard look at their values. RecruitmentPlus was founded on putting people first. We are Customer-Centric. Our Managing Director – Anne Fanthom – looked back on our company history and shared the reason she established her own recruitment agency all those years ago:
“Having worked in recruitment in the UK for ten years, I returned to Dublin. After spending two years at home with my young daughter, I ventured back into the world of recruitment with a large firm in the city centre. However, I found my values were changing. For me, people are at the heart of recruitment. It’s not just a numbers game.
I knew something had to change. So, in 1999, I took a leap of faith. Keeping my core values foremost in my mind, I established RecruitmentPlus as a niche, specialist agency. Over 20 years later, candidate and client needs are still at the forefront of everything we do.”
We are a leading provider of recruitment solutions. We work with some of Ireland’s leading organisations to develop, implement and manage their talent acquisition strategies.
We are a service-based business. We want to take some stress away from our clients. We want to save their valuable time. We first meet with our clients to understand their business, professional needs and expectations. We do our best to understand our client’s company culture. This way, we can find someone who will fit in seamlessly with what makes our client’s company special. Our goal is not just about finding candidates; it’s about finding the ideal candidate for each vacancy.
We believe in finding the best talent for each role; not just meeting quotas or filling positions as quickly as possible. Our approach is based on providing candidates with an excellent experience from start to finish, ensuring that they have a fulfilling career in their new organisation and that clients get the best possible return on investment.
Our director – Hazel Whelan – gave us an example of why she goes out of her way to meet her candidates:
“Technology has changed drastically throughout the years, but no matter how much it advances, you will never replace intuition or empathy with a CV scanning app. This is why I always meet my candidates. One interview that sticks out in my mind was a woman who was home for Christmas for four days. So I went to Dublin airport and met her for a coffee on Stephen’s Day hours before her flight took off to New York. She got the job. She’s back in Ireland with her family. I was part of making that happen.”
Matching candidates to roles is a complex process. It relies not only on experience and in-depth market knowledge, but it also demands intuition, empathy and often lateral thinking to get the best possible outcome, something no computer algorithm can deliver.
Our recruitment process can only work once we have learned everything we can about our client’s business and our candidate’s career goals. There are definitely apps out there that can match keywords from a job spec to keywords from a CV… but to us, that isn’t recruitment and it certainly isn’t customer-centric.
The customer-centric approach is a guiding principle for the way we do business as one of the most trusted recruitment agencies in Ireland. We are committed to understanding, meeting and exceeding the needs of our customers and candidates.
