Employee Testimonial

"I joined Irishjobs.ie over 6 years ago. I started as an Account Manager. I had a worked in AIB for 5 years and in a recruitment agency for 3 years prior to joining. Once I started I felt right at home. I enjoy working with my colleagues as well the ability to be myself on the phone when dealing with clients. I was given support and help when needed and the door was always open if I had any questions or queries that needed to be addressed.

The people in Irishjobs.ie are great and the mood in the office is very positive. The potential to earn a very good salary is there with hard work. Progression within the company is available and opportunities to travel abroad are there if you wished. I have enjoyed the last 6 years working here and I'm looking forward to many more."

Stuart, Senior Account Manager at IrishJobs.ie
