Become a Recruiter 

Brightwater Recruitment is home to over 60 consultants, specialising in recruitment for a range of industries across Ireland from our offices in Dublin, Cork and Belfast.

Following an MBO in 2018, a recent acquisition, a complete overhaul of our systems and technology offering as well as a massive win at the National Recruitment Federation Awards in December 2019 (Best Large Agency) we are now looking to expand our team.

Our Consultants came from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences before becoming Recruiters, but they all share a serious passion for providing solutions to our clients and candidates.

They are “People People” who are highly driven and hard working.

The Recruitment Industry has undergone a huge amount of change in the last 20 years, but the core role of a Recruitment Consultant hasn’t changed, at Brightwater our Consultants partner with clients and candidates on every step on the hiring process.

Albeit the core role hasn’t changed much in 20 years, the technology, systems and procedures have taken huge leaps. At Brightwater we ensure that our consultants have the best and most advanced technology at their fingertips, allowing them to source candidates and new opportunities in the most efficient and effective way possible.
