As ever, it has been great to work with the team at Vanrath. I was in touch with a number of people in the firm, each of whom went the extra mile, finding roles tailored to my CV and supporting me throughout.

On this occasion, it was Dan Morgan who secured me my new role. He listened carefully to what i was looking for, encouraged me to push the boundaries and actively managed the interview process from start to finish. He has been a wonderful advocate!

Henry Webb was amazing managing my job application process for a senior auditor role last April. I got my current job because of him and I am super thankful. During the process, he gave great advice on how to approach the interview with my now employer (IE. STAR approach). His advice to use the star approach inspired me to fully prepare for my job interview. It was a tough interview but I felt that his tips and advice have guided me through my interview preparation. I never met him in person and our communication was through calls and emails, however when speaking to him on the phone his tone of voice was clear and I believe he communicated his points across very well. He was easy to work with and was quickly responsive to emails/calls. He also even helped with the post queries I had after getting offered the job by my new employer. If I would ever need to move on to my next job, my next point of contact would probably be Henry / Vanrath. Thank you Henry for the help and support

Hannah helped me find a perfect career! She assisted me throughout and helped with every aspect including preparing for the interviews! She was so positive and straight talking - the whole process really put me at ease & I could tell that she really cared about what she was doing! I would 100% recommend Hannah to anyone looking for that next step in their career.

I can't recommend Vanrath recruitment agency enough for their hard work and dedication to help me find employment. Especially Hannah O'Doherty who was friendly, professional and very helpful. She found me a great job and negotiated all the terms. Would very highly recommend and would come back should I ever find myself unemployed again.

VANRATH began in 2000, when a senior level accountant was on the lookout for new opportunities. Wayne Sullivan discovered that professional recruitment services for accountants was not quite the experience he had expected. His entrepreneurial nature and drive to help other accountants realise their career aspirations, was the ‘light-bulb’ moment that encouraged him to start a recruitment agency like no other. The goal was to recruit in the same way, and to the same standard, that an employer would recruit into their own business to ensure the client would get exactly what they required.
