My experience with Eolas Recruitment was absolutely excellent. I dealt with Caoimhe for the whole process and she couldn’t have been more helpful and supportive if she tried, from start to finish she was there to help me with whatever I needed be it tips or answering questions I was confused about or even keeping in contact with the employer for me, we regularly spoke on the phone where she made the whole process smooth and easy and I can not thank her enough for everything she has done for me. 12/10 service.

My experience working with Eolas was and remains excellent. I had not contracted before, so they explained everything I needed to know and informed me of who else I had to contact within related organisations, to complete my preparation for and to facilitate the expeditious engagement of my first contract. Stephen Daly walked me through my contract and all other related matters, their online personal account and documentation system is excellent. Stephens support and communications were always timely and absolute, no query was too large or small, all were answered quickly and comprehensibly. I could not recommend Eolas more, they are a completely professional, reliable and supportive oganisation and I am happy to remain with them going forward.

I accepted a new role though Beth from Eolas...I was very happy with the process throughout. Beth found a role for me quite quickly, which suited my specific skills. Beth and Nollaig were always friendly and super professional and also able to answer any questions or concerns I had. Furthermore, Beth kept me in the loop regularly (not just through email but also through phonecalls) so I always knew exactly what the situation was and how my application was progressing and I am very appreciative of that. I will definately use again Eolas in the future...More recently Nicola took over as my Eolas Agent and came up to speed very quickly on potential roles for me and my previous experience. I found Nicola to be efficient and a good problem solver, All my queries were handled efficiently and successfully by Nicola and in a pleasant and professional manner. I would gladly contact Nicola again and deal with Eolas again as I was most satisfied with her calm, efficient and friendly manner...Thanks again Nicola and we'll stay in touch!
