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.
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 would highly recommend Vanrath to anyone looking for a new job.
Hannah, my recruitment specialist was at all times professional, available and extremely knowledgeable. From my initial first phone call to Vanrath, Hannah gave me great advice on my CV, talked me through interview prep, and followed up with feedback. Hannah negotiated a fantastic contact on my behalf and now I am very excited to be starting my new job soon.
Thank you Hannah for all your hard work behind the scenes and making me feel like your only client.
I am currently based on the south coast of England and looking to relocate to Northern Ireland and needed a job to make it possible. It may have appeared to be a tall order but Alannah was amazing. From the initial conversation her calm, honest and reassuring manner was an absolute delight and nothing was too much trouble. 6 weeks on and I now have the job I wanted but never thought I would get and it's all thanks to Alannah - I cannot recommend her, or Vanrath, highly enough.
