I've had the pleasure of dealing with Gary McMahon when looking for my next career step. He has been fantastic throughout the process giving me valuable advice, pointers and options. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Gary McMahon helped to place me in a new role last year, which was literally just before the first lock-down! He was a complete gentleman throughout the entire process; always on the ball with keeping me updated.

First and foremost, he was keen to ensure that the new role was the right fit for me, and vice versa, for the company. What's more Gary is just a really nice chap to boot, and one you can have a bit of craic with outside of the business talk.

If Gary pings you re. a role, take notice as you'll be hard pushed to find a better recruiter to help you land your dream role.

Thanks to Gary and VANRATH!
