I have worked with Vanrath for just under a year now, and I have to say, the people working their are great at what they do. Any problems, questions, or anything else I ever had, they were always very quick to help me with them. They went above and beyond in a lot of instances, when they didn't really have to. In particular, the agent that I worked with, Shannon McGrath, couldn't have made things easier for me, as well as being really nice and friendly.

I'm leaving them now for a permanent role elsewhere, but if I ever need to look for a different job somewhere else, I'll just go straight to Vanrath and not even consider anywhere else.

My experience of Vanrath has been very positive. They are a very professional organisation and all the staff I came across were extremely helpful and polite regardless of what my query or concerns were. In particular I would like to single out Shannon who was my first point of contact with Vanrath and without her help I would not be in my current permanent position. I applied for my post on a Friday night and by Monday morning Shannon was on the phone and setting up our first meeting. Shannon helped me every step of the way in terms of job interview and subsequent forms etc etc. Shannon has been not only very professional and competent but has more importantly carried out all her dealings with me in a very warm, sincere and pleasant manner. I can't thank Shannon enough for all the work she has done on my behalf. I am now in a permanent position due in part to Shannon's quick actions and attention to detail. I would have no hesitation in using Vanrath again.
I highly recommend this agency because of the staff who work there are very helpful and quick to respond. I have been dealing with Chris and he has been providing more support than what I have asked for. I believe communication is key so, having them contact you before and after the interview helps in understand what the company is looking for in an interview can make the difference between getting the job or not.

I recently worked with Chanel Gillen to fill a vacancy in my finance department. Chanel was a joy to work with and we filled our vacancy within a week. I would have no hesitation in recommending both Chanel and Van Rath for your finance recruitment needs.
