Radius Technologies

Radius Technologies contacted Gemma Hayes in 2003 to assist us with a recruitment campaign searching for sales and IT staff. From the beginning, we found Gemma and her team to be professional yet friendly in their approach. They fully listened to and took the time to understand our requirements and were successful in placing two sales representatives, a Software Developer and two service engineers with us. We are delighted to hear that Gemma has decided to set up her own recruitment agency and will support her every step of the way by contacting Gemma with all of our vacancies as they arise.

Placed Candidates

I had heard about Gemma and her excellent reputation for years so when it was time for me to change job I knew where to go. My first impressions of Gemma were how extremely personable, approachable and genuine she is. On entering her office she listened to exactly what I was looking for and within weeks had matched me up to a job that suited my skills and knowledge. When I left my previous job I was feeling very lost and unsure of the next step for me. Gemma was extremely supportive and her positivity was amazing. She is highly motivational and gave me the confidence I needed to get through the two interviews that followed which got me the job I am in now. She is extremely professional and it's very obvious on first meeting her why she is the top recruitment agency in Co.Wexford. Despite her being extremely busy, when I needed advice she would get back to me within a very short timescale. I consider her my guardian angel because she was just there to help me through every step of the process and here I am now in a job I love. I highly recommend Gemma Hayes Recruitment to everyone. She's exceptional. I can never thank you enough Gemma!

Orlaith Meyler.

Moving from Dublin to Wexford I was worried if I would find work with the same terms and level as I had in Dublin, but I was willing to try just to be in Wexford. I came across Gemma Hayes Recruitment and from there everything fell into place. I applied for a job on her website and Gemma called me the same day to get more on my background. Within the week I was invited for interview, before which, Gemma asked to meet me for a chat. She went through my CV with me again, so that I completely relaxed, as a result, I had a great interview. I was offered the job that evening, with a great package and Gemma was as excited as I was!
If you are looking for a job in Wexford there is no doubt about the professional AND personal, first class service from Gemma Hayes Recruitment, she is one of a kind!!
Thanks a million Gemma.

Unlike any other recruitment agency I have dealt with, Gemma Hayes Recruitment took a personal and active interest in finding me not just A job but the right fit for my somewhat diverse skillset. I have and will continue to recommend Gemma Hayes Recruitment to anyone looking to benefit from her extensive local employment network & knowledge.

Pamela Donegan

I first contacted Gemma Hayes last year about a position I was interested in. We spoke by phone and email, she arranged an interview shortly afterwards and we met for a coffee before hand. I found her to be highly professional and genuine in her approach to both finding the particular company the best candidate and finding me the most suitable position. I was back in contact with Gemma once again in the past few weeks as my current contract was coming to an end. I didn't need to go through my cv again as Gemma recalled our previous meeting and she knew what roles would most suit my experience best.  She quickly arranged an interview and  i was offered (and I accepted) a permanent position within 3 days. I found Gemma to be always available when you need advise. I am truly grateful for all her help and would not hesitate in recommending her to any business or jobseeker as her ability and knowledge of the jobs market is second to none.

Mike Kelliher, Training Manager, Business Operations, Equifax UK.

The service I received from Gemma was excellent from start to finish. She was extremely knowledgeable, professional and friendly on a level that far exceeded my expectations for a recruitment agency.

Jessica Healy, Equifax Customer Service Agent, Equifax UK.

I contacted Gemma Hayes Recruitment in October 2013 about a position I was interested in. From the very start of making contact and through the interview process, Gemma was both professional and most of all very friendly and helpful. She guided me through the process with the greatest of ease, with great advice and helpful tips that really encouraged me to get through the interview. Unfortunately the company changed the spec on the skills required for the position and I was not successful but with Gemma's perseverance on my behalf, I am very happy to say I was successful and was offered a Permanent and completely different position with the same company and I am completely thrilled with my new career. I have registered with other recruitment agencies in the southeast and to be honest they did not have that personal touch or gave me the time to understand what I needed that I experienced with Gemma. Every time I made contact with her it was a pleasure. I would not hesitate in recommending Gemma Hayes Recruitment, it will be a decision that will help your future prospects and one you will not regret.

Rebecca Moore, Satisfied Client.

I received a call from Gemma Hayes Recruitment agency as I was in search of a new career and needed assistance in finding new employment. From start to finish Gemma was so helpful, from updating my CV to what current employers are looking for in my field of a Customer Service Agent. I attended my first interview and was fully prepared by Gemma and was given an update to what the company would expect from me. I really appreciated the high level of care that was offered to me during my employment search. Gemma would always call to deliver feedback if it was yes or no situation. Recently Gemma got me an interview where I was successful in receiving employment. I needed to complete an online assessment for my new role and as my laptop was out of action, Gemma helped me complete all my online criteria at her office. Gemma realised that I was really unhappy in the position I had and she really did her best to get me a new position. I even received a congratulations card in the post. Overall extremely happy with the high level of service provided.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Gemma Hayes Recruitment as an agency to any other person or company. Not long after registering with Gemma, she called me with a job opening. She was very clear in what the company were looking for and within a few days I had completed the interview and got the job.

Gemma has continued to be very supportive, helpful and is always there to answer any questions I may have. I think that anybody looking for a professional recruitment agent, who will put your skills first when finding the best job for you, should register with Gemma.
