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.
