alter conventions

We believe in the power of great marketing to transform business and unlock growth. The marketing roles we work on predominantly fall into four key areas, however given the dynamic nature of today’s business we often find ourselves working on roles that cannot be defined too neatly or that sit outside the marketing department.

We specialise in the following areas, at executive, practitioner, manager and director level and on both a flexible and permanent basis:

Strategy, Data & InsightsMarketing, Brand & Product ManagementCommunications & DigitalTrade/Market Activation

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

  • I believe they are uniquely positioned in the Irish market – they provide support, advice and insight into how best to resource and respond to the marketing and commercial issues facing Irish businesses today.

    Alternatives are uniquely positioned in the Irish market

  • Alternatives have always gone the extra mile to support me throughout my career. They have always taken a real interest in me and my success and I know of no other agency that makes such an effort to keep in touch & really know their candidates. When an opportunity came up to really step change my career, she was far more than a recruiter for me, she was an advisor, coach and my greatest advocate. Thank you!

    They went the extra mile

  • From my initial meeting with Faye, she understood exactly what my requirements were. I had limited experience of recruiting staff and I relied heavily on her advice and expertise. She found the ideal candidate for us, not just in terms of the role but from the perspective of fitting in with the other team members and the culture of the organisation. I will absolutely use Alternatives for any future recruitment needs.

    Recommending Faye

  • Alternatives are the best recruitment agency I've ever dealt with. My business manager was fantastic to work with. She made the effort to listen to me and understand my strengths and in no time at all managed to secure me one strong interview with an amazing company that I would happily work with. She was quick to understand the kind of role I was looking for and found the perfect job for me

    Alternatives fantastic to work with

    Sub Title Test 2

  • 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

  • She has been an immense help to me throughout my search for a change in my career. She understands the market extremely well and provided me with a hugely insightful view on realistic options that I could consider. When I went into the process for a new role, she was always in touch with updates and provided great guidance throughout the interviews, clearly demonstrating her knowledge of her client. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to make a move in their marketing career and I certainly intend to work with her again in relation to building my team.


  • 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

  • The Alternatives team is made up of experienced marketers, working very closely with our own internal loyalty team to drive the loyalty programme. Outsourcing elements of the programme allowed us to avail of Alternatives invaluable advice and guidance in our strategic planning. The team are the driving force behind our partner relationships – both large and small and they are key to delivering a consistent, exciting and valued experience to our customers. We work closely with Alternatives on a daily basis as one team to ensure the key business objectives are met and of course that the customer is always kept at the heart of the programme.

    Managed team solution met objectives flexibly

  • Kristin did so much for me & my career by helping to place me in the right role with the right organisation…she took the stress out of the whole process for me by taking the time to answer any questions and by helping me to prepare for every interview. Nothing was too much trouble for Kristin and she went way beyond the call of duty for me. When I was successfully placed in the role she continued to follow up with me... I've recommended Kristin to a number of friends and I know they've had similarly excellent experiences.

  • In late 2017 Fáilte Ireland procured the services of Alternatives to recruit a Marketing Director. We found the experience to be a very positive one. The team in Alternatives worked to anticipate our needs, and brought a deep understanding of the marketing arena to bear on the process. Their professional approach and support throughout the process from both an organisation and candidate perspective brought a confidence to the whole engagement.  I would have no hesitation in engaging the team in the future.

  • Many thanks to your great team for all their work on this. You have a fantastic team there and I will be sure to recommend Alternatives to anyone who will listen!
