Since Excel Recruitment began in 2002, our CEO Barry Whelan has always placed people at the heart of everything we do, with our company ethos centring around the key message, ‘Placing Great People with Great Companies’. What makes us unique, is that all our consultants are passionate about, and experts in the industry they recruit for. They have had successful careers in retail or hospitality, which makes them exceptionally able to bring their expert knowledge and insight to your companies’ recruitment needs.

Beginning life as a specialist retail recruitment agency, we have built long-standing, mutually beneficial relationships with some of the biggest and best-known names in retail, both Irish and international. Due to our continued growth and awareness of the market, we have expanded quickly into both permanent and temporary hospitality, healthcare, event and industrial recruitment. Excel Recruitment works with some of the top hotels, hospitality groups, venues, nursing homes and more around the country, while still maintaining our position as the number 1 retail recruitment company in Ireland.

We are a multi award-winning agency, including being named Agency of the Year in 2016 by the National Recruitment Federation. We are also the proud winners of the award for ‘Best Recruitment Provider’ at the Checkout National Retail Supplier Awards for 2015, 2016 and 2017.

This award is particularly meaningful for us as it is awarded by an esteemed panel of judges made up of retailers, exactly the clients and market we serve and typifies our expertise and dedication to the industries we serve.

Our professional recruiters ensure that our client’s brief is fully understood and tailor the process to suit their individual needs. We seek out, attract and present you with a range of suitable candidates to fit your business, with the final decision ultimately left with you. We do the time-consuming work – creating adverts and sifting through numerous CVs to ensure you receive the best possible candidates to join your team and better your business.

Only the highest standard of suitable candidates will pass our rigorous screening process, ensuring their skills and attributes are in line with the needs and goals of the job and company. Whatever level of expertise you require, we have the skills to source, screen and secure you the right candidate.
