  • Lisa Cooley, - Janssen Biologics

    It is rare to find someone as invaluable as Therese. It was a pleasure to have her help kick start my career. Since I first spoke with her she has been nothing but helpful, polite, prompt and determined. Any time a new potentially suitable position became available she contacted me to see if I wanted to have my name put forward. Therese helped me with my interview preparation by sending me information about the company and example questions, as well as phoning me before and after to see if I was set and how the interview had gone. Without Therese I would still be lost in a sea of job applications. She is worth her weight in gold. Thank you Therese!

  • Paul Hickey,  - FMC

    I contacted Dara when I wanted to get back into the workforce after a career break. Dara was efficient and professional in all of our dealings, she arranged that we meet to discuss my skills & experience and also to tease out exactly what I wanted from a new position. Dara then proved to be extremely effective in that within 10 days of first contact I accepted an offer from the first employer my CV was submitted to. I have no hesitation in recommending Dara as a very worthwhile contact if you are seeking a career change and/or employment’’
