What our clients say about us…

“Collins McNicholas provided excellent support to our search for a senior management position in terms of market analysis, executive search and management of the recruitment process. Their approach was efficient and they linked seamlessly with our own internal processes. I would be happy to recommend Collins McNicholas for assistance with senior executive recruitment campaigns.”
– Brian Murphy, Director of Organisation Support and Development, LMETB
We retained the services of Collins McNicholas recruitment to manage the search and selection process to source 3 senior hires for our Ireland operations.  The process was extremely successful and we found the consultant, Mary Mullin, very knowledgeable. From the start she was engaged and available, she provided advice and feedback, and ultimately delivered excellent candidates within a tight timeframe.
We’ve developed trust in our partnership with Collins McNicholas which has allowed us to focus on other projects while Mary took care of the executive search/sourcing and hiring process and presented us with highly qualified candidates who met our job specification criteria.  The communication between all parties was excellent, she clearly understands the job requirements and our company culture. As a result, we have secured a strong team in Ireland.  Overall,  the service provided by Mary at CMCN was professional, friendly, and responsive which made it a pleasure to work with CMCN.  Overall, a great engagement!
– John Morr, HR Director, Beyond Air
The company was a pleasure to work with:  professional, courteous, dynamic and experienced. From the first briefing meeting, through to the post-selection process and debrief, we worked in a happy partnership with CMcN to fill a key position. Targeted advertising, insightful screening and assessment, and timely communication with us resulted in a really impressive panel of candidates, from which we selected an excellent top executive.”
– Anne Downey, Former Chair, WestBIC
We engaged Collins McNicholas to support us with our recruitment requirements in 2019 as we established our manufacturing site in Ireland, and they have continued to provide us with valuable support and high-quality candidates for a wide range of roles in our organisation, including Operations, Supply Chain, Finance, Legal, Customer Service and IT. Michelle, Christopher and the team worked closely with us to understand our requirements based on our plans for the organisation and to source suitable candidates accordingly. We look forward to continuing to work with Collins McNicholas in the future.”
