“When Zendesk decided to open a development centre in Dublin we canvassed many sources for insight and
information into the local market. Ida became my closest confidant and partner as we put the team together
and built a presence. I really appreciated the introductions, assistance and guidance I received; it went way
beyond pushing resumes across the table and felt like a true partnership with shared goals. Zendesk will
have over one hundred employees in Dublin very soon but, the first VP we hired through CPL is still leading
the group and the most critical hire we made.”

“Without a doubt one of the best recruitment agents I’ve ever dealt with in a very long time. Tom worked very hard on my behalf to fi nd the right role for me. He helped me prepare for interviews and provided excellent feedback on my CV. Tom is a true professional with excellent knowledge of the IT sector. I recommend him if you are ever looking for job in the IT sector.”

"I could not more highly recommend CPL as a recruiting company. During the recruitment process with CPL I had the pleasure of working with Gary Flanagan. Gary would be in regular contact with me regarding possible opportunities. When I progressed to interview stages he would ensure that I was interview ready by performing mock interviews. I believe these mock interviews as well as all the advice and guidance given by Gary ensured my success. A recruitment process can be stressful but Gary was very prompt in replying to any of my emails or phone calls during the process which put my mind at ease. I would not hesitate in working with Gary again at any stage during my career."

In my capacity as Head of HR, I retained Olivia through CPL to support the company's rapid growth strategy. Olivia provided both executive search and general recruitment service. I found Olivia professional in all respects, delivering on results within budget, on time and with a strong customer focus. Olivia is a charismatic representative for her company and has depth in knowledge of the market which makes her advice both insightful and invaluable.  Always willing to think outside the box, I value Olivia's counsel on a broader range of HR issues and am glad to have leveraged this advice for well over 10 years now. I can highly recommend Olivia as a business partner.”

Michael has successfully sourced me for my last two contract roles - that's two in a row which speaks for itself. I truly enjoyed working with him on these two occasions. He stands out from the other recruiters in that he is always friendly, reliable and very helpful in any way. In particular, he knows my skill profile very well and managed to find me matching contract roles which made the whole application and interview process smooth. Even after securing the roles, he made sure to stay in touch and to help with any questions, i.e. going the extra mile.

I have no hesitation recommending Michael to anyone looking for a contract role in IT. I look forward to working with him again when my current contract role comes to its end.
