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.

Vanrath were absolutely brilliant in helping me get a new role in the field of environmental science. Shannon McKinley, the senior science specialist recruiter, was friendly, helpful, attentive and on the ball with turning around my application. I would highly recommend contacting Shannon if you are looking for a new environmental science role.

Ross Stevenson has been the ultimate professional and people person in my recent search for a new role. Within a short period of time, I have now successfully obtained a new and exciting post with HSCNI thanks to Ross's guidance, help and knowledge. I would 100% recommend Ross Stevenson and Vanrath recruitment services to anyone keen to develop their career path. Many thanks to you Ross and Vanrath team. Best regards Anna

Great experience of on-boarding and the smooth process of investigating and gaining a role/opportunity in the present and possible future and many thanks to Ross especially for his friendly and diligent professionalism. Highly recommended.

I reached out to Vanrath after being let down by another recruitment agency and so glad I did. Conor B has been a great help. He kept me informed every step of the way and made the process very easy for me. Thank you Conor!
