As well as providing recruitment services Collins McNicholas have supported us through significant re-organisation. The outplacement programme provided excellent training and support for departing staff to successfully seek employment elsewhere. The success of the programme and expertise of Collins McNicholas allowed our management team to focus on the completion of the re-organisation while continuing to grow our business and brand.

Eoghan SweeneyGeneral Manager, Aurivo

The Collins McNicholas outplacement programme was tailored to suit the needs of our business and our employees. Their flexibility, empathy and broad knowledge of the local job market gave the attendees the confidence they needed to begin a job search. While some employees were sceptical about attending, following the sessions, all agreed that it was a worthwhile and beneficial service.

Jacinta GloverHR Manager, Masonite Ireland

As HR Manager for the site, I have received nothing but positive feedback from the 160 participants, who said that their confidence in finding alternative employment was greatly boosted by their involvement in the outplacement plus programme and subsequent follow up one-to-one meetings. You showed great empathy and your common sense approach coupled with your understanding of the local job market was very reassuring.
