Would highly recommend Vanrath recruitment agency. Phil Doherty @ Vanrath has been a massive help to myself within such a short period of time.
Always a wide range of opportunities and jobs with this agency.
Staff are always friendly and helpful.

Vanrath set me up with assignment at AFBI in Northern Ireland for a period of 22 months. It was a very successful posting and I found the support I received from Vanrath to be top-notch throughout. The Vanrath staff - particularly Damian Dellacroce - were very helpful and supportive and all queries I had were dealt with rapidly and professionally. I recommended Vanrath to agency colleagues I worked with at AFBI, who then switched to also be with them. I wish Damian and his colleagues all the very best for the future.

I've always had a great experience with Vanrath but especially need to give a shout out to Matthew Evers. He stuck with me over the whole lockdown period and got me an amazing role. Constantly keeping me informed and offering advice. Couldn't recommend him and the company enough.

I have known Damian Della Croce for circa 3 years and have been in continual contact with him over that period. Damian has always been very knowledgeable about the marketplace and is very professional, friendly, helpful and effective in his role.
