I would highly recommend working with Simon Lehane in the Cork office. He was extremely helpful, supportive, and responded really quickly to any queries I had. He was there every step of the way and offered an abundance of advice, guidance, and information. Thank you, Simon!

​​Simon contacted me about a possible role with a company and after a 20-minute conversation I felt like I was speaking directly to the company. He knew answers to questions I didn't expect him to have answers for immediately. Simon also knows the software development industry very well, which made it easier for me to figure out if this was the right role for me. I could tell he has worked in this field for long enough that speaking about it is second nature to him. In the same way Simon represented the company he was recruiting for very well, I also felt very confident Simon would represent me with the same professionalism to the company I was applying for. After each interview Simon always made sure to contact me that same day to follow up, and things progressed very quickly and smoothly. Oh, and I did indeed get the job :) It was a pleasure working with you Simon! Thanks for everything!

Simon initially made contact with me while I was in the process of looking for a new challenge in October 2021. At the time I found Simon very polite and knowledgeable about many aspects of the software domain and knew right away I had found a recruiter who was primarily intent on finding a role that met all of my requirements rather than just finding a position for the sake of it. Unfortunately at the time I chose to go in a different direction and found myself in a role that I was very unhappy with. Some six months later Simon was good enough to reach out again to see if I was content with this new position as he had kept a record of what I was initially looking for and believed that he had come across a role that ticked all the boxes for me. And he sure was right! Simon worked very closely with both me and Newswhip while guiding me through the process. The level of knowledge of the domain and the communication throughout the whole process was second to none. A true gentleman to work with and I could not recommend enough.
