Our worldwide sucess could unlock yours

In our careers in international search before co-founding Celtic Turtle, we have solved some of the most difficult hiring problems that exist. From a FTSE 100 client’s need to hire a business development lead to sell services to MI5, MI6 and GCHQ, to teams to turn around delisted public companies, competency experts transforming a health service larger than the entire Irish workforce, to an operational lead for India’s first Tier 4 uptime institute accredited data centre. More often than you would think, these talents at the very top of their field all over the world have been Irish. The top IT operations executive in India is from Malahide, the youngest ever chief executive in the NHS is from Tullamore. 

Our own experience of being founded by a Sligo native living in London and a London born Irish Citizen living in Dublin, enables us to consult and advise people based on the experiences we have personally undertaken. All are welcome and we will pursue the best talent for each client, regardless of location, race, gender, sexual orientation or religion.
