“Working with CCI to recruit our Head of Fundraising was a great success for the Irish Wheelchair Association. CCI were very thorough in narrowing down exactly what we were looking for and they presented us with a shortlist of high-calibre candidates to consider.

Their team was highly professional and personable, communication was always prompt and we found their expertise to be a valued resource. Their commitment to complete customer satisfaction was standout and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other not-for-profit organisations.”

Aidan Stacey, Commercial Director, Irish Wheelchair Association


“Choosing to work alongside CCI was the best decision that the Irish Council for International Students could have made when initiating the process of recruiting the organisation’s new Executive Director. The entire process from initial meetings with the Board of Directors to the offer of employment was managed skilfully and professionally and the team at CCI made sure it was stress-free and surprisingly enjoyable. As well as helping the Board put together a bespoke and tailor made job specification and candidate pack they also ensured that no stone was left unturned in the search for a new leader of ICOS.

The Board were extremely satisfied with CCI’s understanding of the role and the organisation and the candidates put forward for consideration were excellent and well screened. . Every aspect of their work was exceptional and I could not recommend them highly enough to any organisation looking to recruit new personnel.”

Ben Finnegan, Chairperson, Irish Council for International Students (ICOS)
