Why I started my recruitment firm

June 12, 2015

I am sitting here in my shiny new office in Rathgar, Ireland, at the end of week one and I am reflecting on why I took the plunge into entrepreneurship once again. I thought it would make a good topic for a post that introduces what we are trying to do here. I'll address why I am doing it and what we are looking to achieve now and for the future of the company. Hopefully, from this summary, you will get an understanding of how I can help you or not.   Background to my decision I have worked in the corporate world, the SME world servicing large corporates and also in the start up space working with emerging technology firms. Functionally, I have spent about half of my 15 year career working in recruitment and talent consulting. The other half I have worked in online marketing & projects, corporate account management and, finally, digital publishing & events. So, I like to think I have a broad understanding of business, process and what it takes to get stuff done in the corporate world.
