Industry Endorsements Collins McNicholas LogoI am pleased to recommend ‘Skillslink Career Services’. Skillslink has been set up by Dympna Brennan who worked for Collins McNicholas Recruitment & HR Services Group for eleven years.

Dympna was a very experienced Senior Recruitment Consultant who was highly regarded by our clients, candidates, and her fellow colleagues. She has the expertise to provide a highly customised service based on her extensive experience along with the energy and motivation to help people to get a job or to change jobs in an economy that is beginning to recover.

I believe Skillslink is ideally positioned to provide a higher level of candidate care to all candidates than they could legitimately expect from a recruitment agency which ultimately work for their clients rather than for job seekers.

Dympna is a highly experienced and dedicated professional who is well suited to her new career and I am very pleased to recommend her services.
