Our Story

For more than 16 years, we at Excel Recruitment has been Ireland’s leading retail recruitment company.

Founded in 2002 by CEO Barry Whelan, Excel Recruitment is synonymous with a best-in-class recruitment service. We do this by building long-term relationships with our clients and candidates, taking the time to understand their needs.

Becoming the market leader in retail recruitment in Ireland, our business has expanded beyond retail exclusively. Excel Recruitment now also recruits permanent, contract and temporary staff for the Hospitality, Healthcare, Events and Industrial industries, along with providing industry training through our sister company, Future Proof Training. We are one of Ireland’s fasted-growing temporary recruitment agencies and work with some of the best-known hotels, venues, event companies and catering units around the country. We provide them with the highest calibre of temporary hospitality staff, both day-to-day and for their biggest and most prestigious occasions.

What sets us apart from other recruitment companies, alongside our commitment to our clients and candidates, is our expert team of recruitment consultants and their genuine love of the industries they recruit for. Founder and CEO, Barry Whelan, began his career in retail management with Dunnes Stores and Brown Thomas before taking his knowledge to establish Excel Recruitment. Using his retail expertise, our policy was guided by this success, hiring only consultants who have worked extensively in the industries they recruit for.

Our consultants successfully fill positions, not only because of their dedication and diligence to each individual role but because, they are industry trained and use their commercial knowledge to meet and exceed the expectations of both our clients and candidates.

Over 650 clients have trusted us with their recruitment needs. We have placed over 12,000 candidates in their ideal jobs nationwide. We have built up a stellar reputation for success and longstanding relationships with some of the most well-known and successful brands in retail and hospitality, both Irish and international. We are trusted by our candidates and are their first port of call when they are on the look-out for new opportunities be it in Retail, Hospitality or Healthcare. We guide our candidates through the entire recruitment process and ensure they are fully supported every step of the way.
