IRC & Guidant Group join forces to drive innovation in the Irish market

IRC have been providing recruitment services in Ireland since 1984, (rumour has it as one of the first agencies established in the Irish market!) becoming part of what is now the Impellam Group in 1998. Over recent years, IRC have worked closely with sister company Guidant Group, to extend their service offering to the Irish market. 

Guidant IRC
I am pleased to formally launch Guidant IRC; a joint venture merging the local expertise of IRC with the extensive service offering of Guidant Group. 

We see Ireland as a key growth area, and are investing in both our service offering and our market presence. New websites for both IRC & Guidant IRC will accompany the launch, bringing a fresh new look to our brands and showcasing what we do best - providing innovative recruitment solutions across a wide range of sectors.

A unique offering in the Irish market
Guidant IRC will bring an innovative, unique service offering into the Irish market including Managed Services, RPO and Statement of Work. Combined with the Specialist Staffing model still offered by IRC, both brands will work seamlessly to ensure we can design and deliver unique solutions that will benefit each and every client.

A strategy for growth
Having worked with IRC for 14 years and alongside Guidant for the last 5 years, I am delighted to head up the growth strategy across both brands. The opportunities presented by the joint venture are exciting for our own team members, our candidates and existing and new clients.

Committed to our values
IRC & Guidant have always shared many of the same values; namely our commitment to operational excellence and innovation. Watching this come to life through our new website, in the marketing collateral that is being created and in the formalising of our internal processes to ensure that our candidate experience continues to be market leading, is personally, a career highlight for me and I know this is only the start! 

More still to come
We will be publishing regular blogs and further developing our market insights, so please keep an eye on our website and social media profiles on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

If you have any queries on any of our services or existing case studies please contact me directly. I look forward to sharing more updates in the very near future!
