From the initial discussion about my role through, the vetting, onboarding and right through to the invoicing and payment process the experience with Eolas has been first rate. Luke helped me highlight the items on the CV that the client was looking for and Stephen gave me solid advice about how to invoice in Euros from a UK company. Stephen advised me to open a euro account. Advice which I initially ignored...at my cost...the Royal Bank of Scotland creamed 4.6% of my first invoice! Next time I will listen to the voice of experience.

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.
