  • Kate at Next Generation contacted me regarding a role that was tailored to my experience and qualifications and in an industry, I was looking to enter. The entire process was very efficient and transparent and I was completely aware of my position and performance throughout the entire interview process. Kate was extremely helpful throughout with both preparation and coaching tips that certainly helped me demonstrate my strengths well to the client. I would highly recommend Next Generation if looking for a new challenge.

  • Sarah and team really take the time to really understand your needs and have been a great support.

    Dylan Lindo

  • Sarah's knowledge of the Supply Chain industry in Ireland and the key people within it is unrivaled. This makes the Next Generation experience much more personable, as in addition to a standard skills / experience match, a focus is put on finding good personal fit and culture match between employer and candidate. Communication was always excellent, and without them I would not have found my perfect role, for which I am very grateful

  • I cannot recommend Simona Morelli enough from Next Generation. From not having much luck in my career so far, Simona encouraged and helped me to get my 'big break'. She was great with interview preparation and always had a follow-up call after interviews. I thought that Simona's job would be finished when I was offered the job, but no she kept in contact with me to make sure everything was alright several time before I started the job.

    Niamh Fussey

  • NG recruitment were brilliant to deal with from start to finish. A special mention to Simona who was so helpful and dealt with every query I had promptly. These times have made the interview process more challenging, with Simona's help and guidance I had no added stress or worry. The whole process was seamless and stress free. Would highly recommend this agency!!!!
