We know professional services because we are professional services! Our senior management team are professionally qualified in their respective sector - qualified lawyer and accountants - or have worked in global advisory firms.
We also consider recruitment to be the same as any other professional service when delivered correctly - consultative, expert-led and value-add. Our unique mix of professional and recruitment experience enables us to give our candidates the level of professional service which we believe they should expect from their recruitment partner.
We Understand You
How can someone effectively advise you on your career if they don’t understand your professional environment, role, career highs and lows, and the current relevant marketplace?
At Phoenix, we do. Why? Because we have first-hand experience of the relevant professional environment.
Armed with this expertise, we work closely with you to understand your career path to date, and where you want to take your career in the short, medium and long-term. We then provide considered, tailored advice to help you explore, and successfully secure, your next opportunity.
We work with Ireland’s leading firms because they know that we work with top talent.
This means that we work on the best opportunities in the market - many on an exclusive basis - and forge long-lasting relationships with our clients and relevant hiring managers. They entrust their mandates to us because they know that we understand the right fit for their organisation and we will deliver relevant talent who will excel in their role.
Relationship vs Transaction
You put a huge amount of time, effort and commitment into your career, which is why we understand that, at times, every call to us might not be about a potential move. You might want the latest salary information in advance of a performance review, or advice on how to prepare, with tips on asking for a pay rise. We consider this part of our job.
So, when you decide you would like to explore opportunities, we trust that our relationship is such that you’ll call us when you need us.
