“Dale has been instrumental in recruiting a strong management team for our new restaurant opening, in what is a new and lesser known market for us. Dale is a pleasure to work with, bringing us a superb selection of candidates having quickly grasped an understanding of our needs. She was also offered advice around wider recruitment needs and brings a specialist local knowledge that we would not have otherwise been able to access. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dale for management recruitment and would use her again in the future.”
Huge thanks Dale, Donna and Kate really are a dream team. Its worked out so well.

I’ve worked with Dale on and off for the past five years. Dale has provided us with huge support filling our managers vacancies, particularly when were were expanding into Ireland. Dale made sure she got to know us as a brand and got to know the type of candidates that suited our business. She’s always been quick in responding to any vacancies we’ve released to her and has always sent through high quality candidates. Over the years we’ve developed a great working relationship, Dale would be among the top agencies we would have worked with and will continue to work with in the future. I am happy to highly recommend her!
