About Hartley People Recruitment

Hartley People Recruitment has consistently combined professional integrity, market understanding and client focus to deliver a specialist recruitment service to a broad spectrum of customers.

Our focus has always been on client care, ensuring a tailored approach is provided to match the needs of both the employer and the candidate. 

High professional standards and respect for both client and candidate have always been the key values and principles that have driven our business and have enabled us to grow and develop as a company.

It’s not surprising then that our client and candidate retention is second to none.

Since opening our doors in 2001, Hartley People Recruitment has grown organically and exponentially and is now the market leader in the south-east. Our success is simply a reflection of the trust that our customers and candidates place in our ability – hopefully, both will continue to flourish in the years ahead!

Headquartered in Waterford and founded by Fergal and Roisin Hartley, our companies employ over 400 people throughout Ireland. 

As the leading recruitment company in the South-East, it is not surprising that we rate our own people as the best in the industry. With a combined 40 years of recruitment experience, our team offers professionalism, quality, honesty and flexibility.

Our consultants have extensive industry experience in their respective sectors / fields which enables Hartley People to achieve an in depth understanding of the competencies, skills and aptitudes necessary for every assignment. That’s why our customers use us as Consultants, not agents!

In addition to our expert team of consultants, the company also employs a comprehensive accounts, payroll, marketing and administration team.

In essence, this is what we offer to our clients. The best service, the best people…Hartley People.

About Hartley People Outplacement & Career Change Consultants

When an organisation downsizes or whenever a career move is involuntary, there typically follows a period of uncertainty and insecurity for the person(s) involved. 

In particular, the lack of career and financial stability can be taxing on both the individual and his/her family. During these times, many employers offer Outplacement Services to their staff to assist them through this difficult period in their lives and to ensure that they are well positioned to secure the best possible alternative employment or achieve their own personal goals. 

Hartley People has specialised in Outplacement & Career Change Consulting since our inception in 2001. During this period, we have enjoyed rapid growth and we are now widely recognised as one of the market leaders in the provision of professional outplacement services nationally. 

Our success is simply a reflection of the results that we achieve and the trust that our customers and participants place in our ability! 

Our approach has always been client centric and our business philosophy is a simple one – provide the best service and offer the best value for money to our clients, no exceptions! 

In doing so, we know that our customers will tell other customers and our business will grow. A simple philosophy…but one that has taken many years to perfect!

Above all else, we pride ourselves on our knowledge of the industry. Both company principals have specialised in Outplacement, Career Change and Recruitment for over 10 years. We know how to ensure that our clients put their best foot forward. We don’t just help people to get a job, we help them to get the best jobs!

Our recruitment experience ensures that our fingers are on the pulse at all times. 

We know which companies are employing people, we know what they want and we know when they want it! This means that we don’t just do the theory – we offer practical real world solutions to real people with real dreams for their careers.

If your company is serious about helping it’s staff during downsizing or closure, then we are serious about doing business with you…
