I have had long experience of interviewing the Voluntary, Corporate and Religious Sector; however with the focused, experienced, professional support at Dalríada I don't think we would have been as successful without the help of your organisation.

Kevin Baird, CEO

I particularly appreciated the emphasis you placed on the 'fit' a candidate might have with the role and especially with the Trust and our ongoing expansion.

Gerry Mc Manus, Vice Chair

I have seldom encountered such a personal and individual approach to the selection process and I would strongly recommend both you and Dalríada Executive Search and Selection to any prospective employer seeking executive talent.

Sean Delmar, President

I have to say that after your initial meeting with the Board we were very confident that you would deliver the right candidate, and this you have done. The whole process was handled by you in a very professional manner and your guidance and support from start to finish was invaluable.

Colm Molloy, HR Manager

quotes quotes

You took the time to learn about our business and used this knowledge to position discussions with potential candidates. From the outset you consistently provided regular updates throughout the search process. We were impressed with your tenacity and professionalism as you left few stones unturned to uncover, attract, and recruit the best possible executive talent.

Michael O'Halloran, Chief Executive Officer

quotes quotes

Even though I have had long experience of interviewing and the selection process as a member of interview panels, without the help of your organisation I feel we would not have been able to manage the process as well as we did, to ensure that it was open and transparent and that anything that needed to be done was done.
