What you say about us

  • “I have worked with Sandra Lawler for a number of years now and believe that the flexible business model they offer for talent in the commercial and marketing disciplines is exceptional. The Alternatives team have an in-depth understanding of today’s business needs which give them the edge when finding us the right people to drive us forward.”

    Flexible business model second to none

  • Alternatives were a fantastic agency to work with. They took both my personality and professional experience into account and placed me in an ideal position. Lauren was a pleasure to work with; Attentive, professional and always available to field queries.

    Recommending Lauren

  • I found Faye incredibly personable and professional at all stages of my Alternatives experience. It felt like she had my best interests at heart and I found she understood my skillset and the kind of role I was suited to, more than any other recruiter I have worked with.

    Faye had my best interests at heart

  • Alternatives have been a long standing, outstanding support to permanent tsb in addressing interim and full time recruitment needs. They go beyond any client brief so that they understand exactly what the client requires and why. In addition the team's market understanding and people networking is hugely strengthened through the great thought leadership initiatives that the team at Alternatives lead across the sector.

    Alternatives go beyond any client brief

  • The Alternatives team has been fantastic from day one; they really took the time to understand my individual strengths as a Marketing professional. For me, working on an interim assignment gives me access to top-rate companies, while allowing me to gain valuable experience from many different sectors. It is a refreshing change to witness first-hand a recruitment specialist who does not adopt a 'one size fits all' approach, and as a result, I feel they are a company who I will work with throughout my Marketing career.

    Interim assignments give me access to top-rate companies

  • I just moved back from living and working abroad. I took an interim position with a leading blue chip company so that I could get a feel for the culture of the company before deciding to commit to a full time position. It’s ideal. Thank you Alternatives.

    Coming back to Ireland

  • I have always found the Alternatives team a pleasure to work with over many years. They really get our culture and they provide us with great people.

    They provide us with great people

  • I came across Lauren when looking for a new role after returning from Australia last year. I met with a lot of different recruiters but felt that none of them paid heed to my job aspirations. Lauren not only took on board my past employment history but factored in what I had briefed her about my ideal position and future ambitions. Second to that Lauren stayed in contact even when the market was slow just to touch base which added a personal factor that no other recruiter had shown.
