Having experienced Clark as a candidate, I would recommend both Clark and Deirdre Coghlan-Murray both for candidates seeking a new position, and for employers looking to select high-quality candidates for their organisations. From a candidate point of view, I had a long and thorough interview with Deirdre which was instrumental in dissecting my previous positions, aptitudes and skills, and teased out many high-value aspects that I had missed completely in assembling both my CV and my applications. Following significant revisions, this then led via Clark on to a series of interviews with my new employer. At every stage, Deirdre was of great assistance in framing what the purpose of the interview would be, who the attendees would be, and what the specific areas of concern were likely to be for every interview. From an employer perspective, I would have no hesitation in using Deirdre and Clark in future searches for suitable candidates - I would do so feeling fully confident that the candidates had been through a rigorous process of identifying their knowledge, skills and attitudes, and the candidates that I would be presented with would be of the highest quality.

We’ve worked with Clark for the last 3 years using the ADV profile to help us make decisions on hiring for key Leadership roles in our business. The profile coupled with the practical insight provided by Deirdre Coghlan – Murray has been critical in making the right hiring decisions not just for the Company but also for the candidates. We establish robust induction and development plans for these news hires based on the profile information. I am delighted to say we have hired some excellent Leaders who continue to thrive and deliver in our business today.

Lakeland Dairies has partnered with Clark for a number of years now during which time we have placed some of our more complex talent sourcing projects with them. Despite the challenging nature of these projects in terms of the specific skill sets and background experience requirements Clark have excelled in the calibre of talented candidates presented to us for consideration resulting in a 100% success rate. The team at Clark work extremely hard to ensure that they have an intimate understanding of our business and our hiring needs to the extent that they effectively act as an extension of our HR function. As a talent sourcing partner I cannot think of any team that I would place higher than Clark in terms of quality of service, commitment, integrity and delivery.

The MJ Flood Group has been working with Clark for a number of years. The consultants at Clark take the time to fully understand our organisation and the requirements for each campaign and our partnership with them ensures that they know the fit for our organisation. The care they take during their screening process, their ‘quality over quantity’ approach when proposing candidates, together with their understanding of our culture, values and requirements, results in a pool of quality candidates for us to consider. On top of all this, we have the reassurance that all candidates that they propose have been interviewed by Clark against both their and our standards. It is always a pleasure to deal with the team and I would not hesitate in recommending Clark.
