Personal Assistant

"Having emailed Empire Recruitment in November 2023 regarding a job listing I was promptly contacted by Jennifer McGowan.

She was very personable and explained the available position to me. I liaised with Jennifer over the following two weeks, providing her with required paperwork and references. Having been successfully hired by the company, I was contacted again by Jennifer to make sure I was entirely happy with the package.

About three weeks into the job, Jennifer contacted me again to see if I was content on the site I had been placed. I found Jennifer to be very professional and pleasant to deal with, a very REAL person and a credit to Empire Recruitment."

"I’m an Italian guy and I came to live in Ireland about one year and half ago. One of the most important things was definitely to find a job. First of all I tried to look for a job on various websites, but I’ve not been lucky. So I decided to ask for help to a job agency one year ago and EmpireRecruitment was the first...and the last..."

"Thank you for your efforts during the past week. Having spoken to a number of recruitment agency staff over the past while I can truly say you have been the most pleasant, helpful, informative and honest in your dealings with me and on my behalf. Not all recruitment agents are anywhere near yourself in terms of professionalism and I personally felt kept well informed and had someone with my interests as a priority.Thanks very much."

Accounts Candidate

"I have been working with Empire Recruitment over the last 18 months to find the right people to join our company. I have found the team to be excellent at finding candidates and helping us get the right person for the roles. I would recommend Empire Recruitment to any employer trying to find good staff.”

Kris Gardiner
DDC Fitout & Design

"Really a great recruitment agency. The consultant looking after me, very pleasant to deal with, came in one day by chance and asked if there's any jobs going. To my surprise I am now employed with a full-time contract, one of the best positions I've worked in my career so far as well.

Got a lot of goodies from Empire Recruitment as well and the staff were very communicable, kept me informed whole way though from day I walked in until day I signed my contract. This is a good spot to consult for vacancies. They don't just tell you what you want to hear and then throw you into some random job where you are unhappy and end up leaving after weeks.

To sum up, if you want professionalism, courtesy, respect and a job that you can build a career, this is the place to go...Thanks again for everything."
