  • We engaged Nichola/ Daly Recruitment to find us an Events Manager, as a start-up company and new to events this recruitment was challenging for us. We need not have worried, because Nichola with her vast knowledge and network in hospitality made this a satisfying and successful experience.

    The whole process from our engagement to our chosen candidate signing the contract was two weeks! The quality of the CVs were excellent, it was difficult to choose between the candidates put forward as Nichola had screened them so well against the job description/ role spec.

    We ended up with an outstanding hire, and as stressless and effortless an experience I have had in my 30 years of management.”

I would highly recommend Daly Recruitment to any of my industry colleagues.

  • Nichola has worked very closely with me in relation to sourcing high calibre executives in respect of a number of senior management roles.  I have been most impressed with Nichola’s grasp of understanding, and contacts within the hospitality industry both within Northern Ireland and wider afield.  She ‘gets’ the business needs and is able to match needs with high quality candidates to appoint.
