Brian provided me with a breakthrough in my career. I was puzzled about finding a job, as I was at the end of my contract. I happened to connect with Brian from Realtime Recruitment. Within no time, he set me up for a fine job. I owe him... big time. My experience during the recruitment process was great. He was always supportive, an excellent communicator, extremely professional, guided me through every stage of the interview process, and without doubt the best recruiter I've ever worked with. I highly recommend Brian for an exciting career breakthrough.read more

Nicole's feedback:Reliable is what comes to mind when I think about Nicolle is that from the first conversation we had, she showed herself to be a person engaged in what she does, and from the content of our conversation she manages to... extract what is necessary, always showing herself beyond as a reliable person also interested in making it happen. She is willing to go above and beyond to answer questions and, if possible, indicate solutions to other issues. Her way of communicating undoubtedly helps and greatly facilitates the bridge between employers and candidates. I just want to say thank you to Nicolle for her efforts to make things happen.read more

I’m bit worried there are only 5 starts to rate. Because the amount of professionalism and help that the organization provided deserves countless stars. I’m completely satisfied dealing with one of the staff members called Wayne, he showed... me right role on right time which perfectly suited me, additionally his guidance till onboarding is second best to none. Even during his absence Wayne’s team members were in touch base with me for ensuring the seamless process of interview stages. In a nutshell, Real time is a company that one can rely upon.read more

Hi All, Very much impressive on Wayne's interaction with candidates. Yes may be it is all part of Recruiters responsibility, however beyond the job, the connection between the company and the candidates in terms of satisfying the... requirement what client has in their pocket and taking further with the candidates profile and filtering to proceed for next level is the biggest challenge. I am new here and only 2 months old, he was very much with me to explain every process and in every stage of the interview and made me feel more comfortable, build my confidence more and reliable. He was also given the details how I need to prepare here in Ireland and obviously I am from India and the interview process and the expectations are completely different. Overall, he is process oriented, good in filtering the technical ability with the candidates, good rapport with the client and filtering the details from them what they need in the role and the same has been analyzing with the candidates. I got the right job with the help of Wayne.read more

I had experience with realTime as a customer and as a candidate. In both cases I had flawless experience. As a customer they connected me with the right candidates which skill sets were perfect fit for our team and project needs. They... really invest their time and energy to get to know you, understand your expectations and your skills as a candidate or requirements in case you are an employer looking for a talent. Big thank you to Lorraine and Harry who helped in both, hiring and interviewing process. Harry was with me at every step with some advice or trying to get my feedback about the process, which is very important if you want to match candidates with employers properly on multiple levels(technology stack/cultural fit/diversity). Based on my experience, I cannot recommend them highly enough.read more

The transition from one job to another is always a tumultuous time, filled with worries and concerns and all kinds of co-ordination challenges. This can be especially true if it also involves moving to another town or even city. How about... relocating 3000km!! This was the unique challenge Dan was faced with when first engaging in a chat with me 5 or 6 weeks ago.Dan not only helped make the transition smooth by keeping in touch and reassuring me every step of the way, but also (even when on holidays) reached out personally to offer any help that he could. This is simply put 'Above and Beyond' - do I need to add anything else?I am in your debt Dan, your professionalism throughout the entire process was first class. More importantly your humane understanding, empathy and support meant the world to me and my partner.Thanks you.read more
