Employee Testimonial

I've been working for for just over three years. I first started as a business development executive and soon progressed to an account manager and after two years became a senior account manager.
I'm based in the Galway division and one of the reasons why I love working here is because of the people. I'm part of excellent team who cannot do enough to help you. For such a large company, there really is a family feel.

If you're willing to work hard, the earning potential at is second to none.
