I dealt with both Deborah Byrne and Jennie Hoare of GPC Ireland recently when they helped me secure a full-time permanent position as a Bid Manager with one of the leading Engineering and Project Management Consultancies in Ireland. I found them both to very attentive and thoughtful of my requirements and concerns, always replying to my queries and requests promptly and completely and following up on my behalf diligently.

Both Deborah and Jennie presented GPC Ireland as a professional, competent and efficient organisation, and at all times I had full confidence that they were acting in my interests. Thanks again, both of you, for all your hard work.

  • Louise
  • Bid Manager

Working with Caroline has been a fantastic experience. Caroline took the time to go through what I was looking for in an employer and tailored the opportunities to suit my needs. Along with arranging suitable interviews she helped me prepare for those interviews with numerous phone calls and also provided supporting documentation on the roles and prospective employers. She was extremely professional and courteous throughout the entire experience and with her in depth knowledge of the employment market I knew I was in the right hands. A generally stressful experience was made extremely easy and I could not recommend Caroline’s service’s highly enough.

  • Karl
  • Senior Structural Engineer

After contacting multiple recruitment agencies without success, Caroline Herlihy at GPC secured me two interviews which resulted in two employment offers in only a month’s time. I think GPC has one of the most extensive networks of engineering consultancy employers in Ireland. Caroline has a superb understanding of the engineering sector and she is excellent at matching candidate’s strengths with client’s needs.

Thanks again Caroline for all your help.


  • Marina
  • Structural Engineer

At a time of uncertainty and slow down in the construction industry, Caroline and GPC secured me a fantastic opportunity with an excellent company. Caroline has many connections within the industry and provided me with updates and straight to the point advice. I would highly recommend Caroline and GPC and would suggest anyone who is looking for a move to make them your first point of contact.


  • Mark
  • Structural Engineer

I applied for an engineering job through GPC. The following day I received a call from Caroline assuring me that she will be able to find me a job with 1 week’s time. I did not think that she would be able to find a job in that time period, given the fact that I am applying from overseas. But I put my trust in her and 5 days later I had my first interview. This was also the only interview and the exact company that I am currently working for in Dublin. Caroline was so well organized with a list of top engineering companies in the Dublin area and advised me on which companies are the ones to look out for.

Never once did Caroline loose faith in my abilities, which is a very important aspect to build trust in a person that you know from nowhere. Caroline liaised with the company that I will be working at, to arrange my working permit – she also managed to keep me in the loop throughout this whole process (which can take time). It is now a week that I am in Dublin and Caroline has checked in with me via phone calls 3 times, just to make sure that I am happy at the company I work for, and that my accommodation is sorted out. My overall experience was absolutely great.

I will not hesitate to refer anyone looking for a job into GPC’s direction, more specific, refer them to Caroline. I thank you very much for the overall pleasant experience.

  • Andy
  • Civil Engineer

Declan is extremely helpful and professional. He’s very proactive and works very hard to get exactly what you ask for.

  • Eadaoin
  • Assistant Project Manager

Declan setup numerous opportunities with all the largest contractors, within a week of me contacting him. I got a great job through Declan and he still contacts me to make sure everything is going well. Most importantly, Declan was a pleasure to deal with and lead me through the recruitment process without issue.

  • Niall
  • Project Manager

A very professional and friendly approach, non-“aggressive” like most of recruiters these days!

  • Catalin
  • Health and Safety Officer

Declan is a first class recruitment professional. He puts a huge amount of effort and care into finding the right job for his client. A pleasure to deal with.

  • Barry
  • Site Engineer

Declan found me a job position that matched my skills and ambition. My recruitment went fast and well, due his passion, professional approach and high motivation to find suitable employer for me. I recommend Declan as an accountable and extremely professional recruitment consultant that really cares of candidate and helps him coming through recruitment process.

  • Tomasz
  • Site Engineer

The job opportunities afforded to me through interviews set up by GPC are a credit to the strong working relationships that Caroline has developed with industry leading firms. Caroline helped me realise my true value to potential future employers. From start to finish, there was a genuine excitement and enthusiasm from GPC that is unlike any other recruitment agency I have dealt with. GPC would be my number one recommendation to construction industry professionals seeking to further their career. My desires and goals were understood and matched with suitable roles. Just a week after I had outlined what I wanted from my career move, I had completed a number of interviews and attractive offers from suitable companies were made. The professional service GPC should be experienced by anyone in the market for a new role.

  • Conor
  • Structural Engineer 

I found Keith at GPC excellent to deal with. He arranged interviews for me with 5 top Contractors which gave me the best opportunity of securing a more senior role. He was extremely professional throughout the process, providing advice and guiding me in the right direction.

  • Paul
  • Senior Planner

GPC is unlike any recruiting company that I had worked with in the past. Caroline showed professionalism from the beginning of my job hunt until I secured my dream job. No other company has organised more than one interview for me in a single day. Caroline and I spoke before and after each interview, this prepared me and gave me the confidence that I needed.  I would say this to jobseekers: if you want a professional assistance in getting your dream job, speak to Caroline from GPC.

  • James
  • Process Engineer

In the past, I have found recruitment agencies ruthless and un-professional with bad quality work. I was reluctant to approach an agency but approached GPC as I was so frustrated and fed up in my current position. Caroline was completely different to any agency I have ever been in contact with in the past. She is extremely professional but friendly and provides a very prompt service. She has great contacts and secured me four interviews within a week of me sending my CV to her. I was offered some amazing jobs as a result of her hard work and I am looking forward to commencing my new position with excitement. I have already recommended her to my friends.

  • Catriona
  • Structural Design Engineer

GPC did much more than find me a new position, they played a bit part in restoring my wellbeing. When I approached Caroline is September 2017 my confidence had taken a battering and I wasn’t convinced I even wanted to continue in engineering consultancy – despite having given 27 years of my life to the profession. Caroline afforded me significant one to one time. She challenged me to review my career, my strengths and weaknesses, my achievements, my likes and dislikes. In so doing she rebuilt my confidence, restored my passion for my profession. With Caroline’s support I was able to determine what I wanted from a new role and look to the future with positivity.

Caroline used her in depth knowledge of engineering consultancies, the senior personnel in those companies and the experiences of staff she had placed with those companies to find opportunities that would be the right fit for me. Those opportunities weren’t ones that existed but ones she created.

As an employer I dealt with numerous recruitment agencies so I believe I have the experience to say that what GPC offer is truly unique.

  • Emma
  • Chartered Civil Engineer & Director

I contacted Caroline last year at a stage where I was utterly fed up and demotivated in my previous management position of 14 years. Through talking it out over a few conversations Caroline not only helped me identify the exact role I was looking for but called my new Employer and placed me in a position that I couldn’t have even wished for. I am thriving in my new role and it’s all thanks to Caroline and her ability to identify her candidates’ exact needs and skills and her network of contacts to help place her candidates in their ideal roles. Caroline is extremely professional and an excellent negotiator for her candidates. Caroline offers a friendly professional service that you don’t get with other recruitment agencies. I cannot thank Caroline or recommend her highly enough for her help and support over the last 6 months.

  • Brian
  • Quantity Surveyor /Senior Development Manager

After recently moving home to Ireland I was looking to make a move in my career but wasn’t sure where to start. I was advised by a colleague, who had gone through a similar experience, to contact GPC. Caroline got back to me straight away and filled me with excitement about all of the opportunities she could open up for me. She has excellent local industry knowledge, which was invaluable to me, and she really focused on roles that were specific to my wants which was reassuring. In the end I got a great job with a company I may have never approached if it weren’t for Caroline. I am delighted I followed up on the tip to contact her, a great experience overall.

  • Avril
  • Chartered Mechanical Engineer

I contacted GPC early in my job hunt and received a phone call from Caroline within 24 hours. She was incredibly helpful from the outset. She had a clear understanding of my qualifications and experience and was able to provide invaluable advice on tailoring my CV accordingly. My first interview was arranged within two days of contacting GPC, and I had a job offer in my desired field in less than a week. Job hunting is a notoriously long and stressful process, but Caroline made it quick, simple and painless.  I would highly recommend GPC’s services to anybody seeking employment in the construction industry.

Caroline was a brilliant help from the moment I first contacted her.

A mutual friend sent me Caroline’s details and I sent her an email. She was back to me within 24 hours and when I arrived home, Caroline had arranged a number of face to face interviews within my first week. After a few interviews I was placed within a fantastic company in Dublin. I would recommend Caroline to everybody seeking work in my industry (civil & structural engineering).

To my delight, I was placed with a great Company within four days of arriving in Ireland. I would have no hesitation in recommending Caroline for recruitment purposes

I am now happily settled in my new place of work as a result of Deborah finding me this position. Thanks again for all your help.

  • Ann

GPC contacted a number of firms on my behalf which led to me being invited for an interview with the company that I now work for. I received significant career coaching as well as advice on how to best prepare for my interviews. I particularly valued the guidance GPC gave me when negotiating my salary. I would recommend this firm to any candidate.

  • Philip

Working with Caroline enabled me to apply for openings at the consulting companies that I was most interested in and then had the opportunity of choice. It is a win-win situation really, because companies like to work with professional recruiters as they always provide the best candidates. Caroline is an excellent intermediator, being able to best represent the interests of both the Candidate and the Company. I would gladly refer Caroline to any of my friends.
