Cayman Islands

Happy to write a review for Shane, who sorted jobs for both my girlfriend and I (we relocated from Dublin to Cayman Islands). One thing consistent throughout was Shane acting in our best interests as opposed to his own, something extremely unique in the Irish recruitment industry. He will give you balanced opinion and let you make up your own mind. We were happy to be his first Cayman relocation placements and I imagine we will be the first of many. We are now very well settled into life in the Cayman Islands and we still maintain a friendship with Shane. Corporate Trust Team at Citco Cayman

Senior Associate – Corporate Secretarial at DMS Governance

July 21, 2020, Harmen was a client of Shane’s

Shane is a dedicated and professional recruiter. He is meticulous in understanding the requirements and needs of an employee and employer and has an exceptional ability to identify a person and a role rather than aimlessly submitting a candidates CV on the hope that an employer likes the credentials. Shane is friendly and extremely supportive and informative from the submission of a CV and throughout the interview process. I would highly recommend Shane to an employer looking for a recruiter who understands the job specification and to any prospective candidate wanting a thorough recruiter who genuinely has your interests at heart Senior Associate – Corporate Secretarial at DMS Governance

Kasia Lachowicz

Former Company Secretarial Executive in William Fry

November 4, 2018, Kasia was a client of Shane’s

It was a real pleasure to be working with Shane. He was extremely helpful, fully understanding my expectations, full of ideas and advices. He definitely knew the current market trends and he was the one who would advise accordingly. Based on my experience while working with other recruitment agencies, they tend to lack “human approach” and trust features as they do think mostly about getting their fees. It was definitely not the case with Shane and i would highly recommend his services. He will be the one who I contact when deciding on my next move in my career!

Shane is the best recruiter I have worked with and is one of the best recruiters Dublin has seen. He strikes the perfect balance between an employer and a candidate.

Bermuda

Shane recently assisted me in securing a role as a Corporate Administrator in Bermuda. In Autumn 2019, I discussed with Shane that I was keen to explore overseas opportunities with a particular emphasis on company secretarial roles in Bermuda. Within days of our conversation, Shane reverted to me with a summary of the current local jobs market and which employers were actively recruiting. Within a couple of weeks, Shane had scheduled a number of telephonic interviews for me. Before, during, and after the relocation process, Shane was always extremely helpful and responsive to any queries or concerns that I had raised. He was also very proactive in his approach and continually kept me up to speed with any developments as they occurred. If you are considering a move in the company secretarial field, I would strongly recommend Shane. His knowledge of the market, his attention to detail, and his professional but personal approach make Shane an essential point of contact in the search for your next career move.

Senior Governance Coordinator

When Shane approached me to provide him with a note of recommendation, I wanted to make sure that I will not only highlight his deep knowledge of the financial industry and wide network of well-qualified individuals, but also his unique method to identifying people for specific jobs and his individual approach to each candidate. He possesses a deep knowledge of the financial sector and works with a wide network of professionals across a range of job disciplines. I have been consistently impressed with Shane’s attitude since the first day he contacted me. He is not only a recruiter, but also a person who is very engaging, dependable and high in integrity. He understands the complexity of a journey to find a right position by recognising each individual circumstances and knowing that a good match should be a “win-win” proposition for both, employer and employee and on both, professional and personal level. His professional approach is only matched by his ingenuity. I was impressed with Shane’s level of professionalism and his patience in finding the correct match between the candidate and the employer. He sees the bigger picture and for this reason, I know that I can always depend on him to work in the best interest of both, the company as well as the professional seeking new opportunity. I believe this quality is truly rare in the world of professional recruitment and is extremely beneficial in the long-run for all his clients. Senior Governance Coordinator
