What our consultants say

What is better than our recruiters’ opinions to get an idea of what it’s like to work for us!  

  • I started my Approach People success story in Dublin, in 2008. My first international experience! Working in a multicultural environment enabled me to grow quickly, both professionally and personally! I also have been able to work 3 months from home in France. Trust and flexibility have a place of honour in this company! On top of that, I can work on the French market in its entirety and even beyond!

  • I started working for Approach People 9 months ago as an International Recruitment Consultant with no previous recruitment experience and have, thanks to an excellent training program and very supportive teammates, managed to become one of the top performers in my team. Approach People allows you to grow at your own pace with reachable targets, in a very fun and dynamic environment.

    There is nowhere I would rather be. Thank Approach People!

  • Approach People, beaucoup de choses à dire sur ce cabinet ! Outre le côté international et la possibilité d’évoluer sur une zone géographique européenne, le cabinet m’a offert de réelles perspectives en terme de montée en compétences mais aussi d’évolution de carrière. Ainsi en une année, je me suis vu confié un poste de Senior mais également un agrandissement de ma zone géographique au niveau des clients/candidats. On peut y retrouver des consultants ambitieux qui ont le goût du travail bien fait et qui ont à cœur la satisfaction client. Le tout dans la bonne humeur et dans la récompense des efforts !

  • Si vous aimez travailler dans un environnement multilingue, fun et dynamique alors Approach People est fait pour vous ! J’ai démarré en stage à Dublin, puis j’ai eu l’opportunité de revenir à Paris au bout de 4 ans. J'ai fêté mes 10 ans de poste ! Travailler et faire la fête avec les collègues des autres bureaux européens lors de la Christmas party où tout le monde est réuni est très enrichissant.

  • Approach People a été un vrai tremplin dans ma carrière ! J’ai commencé il y a deux ans en tant que Talent Acquisition Specialist au sein du service RH et j’ai rapidement évolué sur un poste de Talent Acquisition Manager, me permettant aujourd’hui de gérer une équipe de 2 personnes. Grâce à notre environnement multiculturel et les cours de langue j’ai pu améliorer très rapidement mon anglais. Je recrute aujourd’hui des profils internationaux pour plusieurs pays !

    Les projets RH sur lesquels j’interviens sont stimulants et me permettent d’intervenir sur différentes problématiques. C’est un plaisir de travailler dans un environnement dynamique avec des collaborateurs passionnés par leurs métiers.

  • Approach People gives a challenging opportunity to develop your career in Recruitment working across different industries and locations in a multicultural and dynamic work place. There's a great office environment, where we have a great mixture of fun and hard work. In my personal case, Approach People gave the opportunity to join the Dublin office managing the Spanish market and to relocate to Spain opening a brand new office in Madrid, now we are growing!

  • Flexibility and Trust




    Great company that trusts employees by allowing them to work from home. Have been doing it for years and love it. Even though I have had bad months here and there, they continued to trust me in the long run.


    Cons: Working from home can be difficult if you are not organised properly. It took me a few months to find the perfect set up in my home and a good schedule to stick with.


    Advice to Management: Continue to believe in your staff and to give them the flexibility they need to grow both professionally but also personally.

    Dublin, Ireland - 20/01/2017

    Pros: I have been working full time in Approach People since August 2016. At the interview stage, I was really impressed with their ethos and their commitment to professional development. And after 6 months with them, they’ve proved that they are true to their word. It is a challenging and rewarding environment, and I love the diversity of my role. Colleagues are great, full of personality and energy. There is a wonderful

    Cons: No cons to report, I’m really happy here

  • Good International Opportunity
    Dublin, Ireland - 01/10/2018

    Pros: Being an International Recruitment Consultant in Approach people Recruitment is a very good opportunity to grow in a multicultural environment. The headquarter in Dublin allows to work with many different nationalities, languages, countries. We work on a wide variety of positions, clients, industry and even countries. Team spirit and fun are there too.

    Cons: Recruitment in an agency is not HR, you need to have a commercial approach of your job and be able to talk everyday about figures, KPI's and money.

    Advice to Management: The company could develop its Corporate Social Responsibility.
  • Dynamic environment, professional approach & open-minded management

    Pros: Healthy & open communication among peers or management. Strong company culture with a motivating rewarding system.Although guidelines/processes are provided, good autonomy/flexibility is given to achieve goals/targets.

    Cons: No major cons. While it offers a lot of pros bigger players cannot compete with, Approach People can only miss out on some of the stronger brands' assets.
  • Senior Recruitment Consultant DACH
    Barcelona, Spain - 06/12/2018

    I am working for the company for 8 years now and love my job a lot! First of all the job itself is very interesting and working hard it brings you great results. Those are topped by extra rewards by the company to say "thank you" from time to time. The team spirit is also great: it is very international and people come in every morning with a lot of energy and joy to work through the day. Finally it has to be said that the company aloso offers a lot of flexibility in order to adapt pricate life with work!

    Cons: It would be nice to meet the other offices more often but there is a big Xmas party every year where we see each other!

    Advice to Management: Thanks for everything up to now! Carry on like this 🙂
  • One of the best companies I have had the pleasure to work for

    Dublin, Ireland - 29/05/2019



    Pros: It was an absolute pleasure to work for Approach People in Dublin. I have had the pleasure to work in a company that provides you with everything you need to be successful and really cares and supports their employees. The Management team is always available, open to new ideas and keen to help everyone. Approach People's culture is dynamic and vibrant, full of young high potential consultants that really care about the job they do. I would definitely recommend Approach People as one of the best places to develop a successful career in the HR industry.


    Cons: No real cons. You have to work hard but you will be rewarded for your efforts.


    Advice to Management: Management is very supportive, always open to honest feedback from employees and looking to improve in every way they can. A truly great management team.

  • Great place to work !
    Paris, France - 01/01/2019

    The company culture is great, currently working in the center of Paris we always have a good time within and outside working hours! We work on a great atmosphere, there is no competition between recruiters. It feels good to work here ! I would totally recommend Approach People not only for the benefits and rewards, but also for the management. Great opportunities to grow up, I have started 2 years ago as an intern in Dublin and I am currently working in Paris as an International Recruitment Consultant.

    Pros: Bonus scheme, social events, management, great culture.

    Cons: There is no meal voucher.
  • Great Atmosphere, Great Clients, Great Bonus
    Senior Recruiter - Paris, France -  5/04/2017

    Approach People is special in a way that we can work closely with colleagues from other European offices. And we gather every year for the Christmas party in Dublin headquarters, which is great to get to know everybody. It is very important to work in a good atmosphere to be able to perform in this position and management understood it well by organising events regularly. Workwise, if you are performing, you can double or triple your salary! Also, there are lots of challenges where you can win High Tech products or even a trip to Bali.
  • It's all about the people at Approach People!

    Dublin, Ireland - 01/05/2019



    Approach People is a people business and you can truly feel it in the day to day atmosphere in the office. This is one of the best staffing firms in Europe and the right place for an aspiring talent acquisition and HR professional to begin their career. Intensive training, almost immediate personal accountability, plenty of freedom in execution, as well as tools to succeed.

  • Top 5 best recruitment agencies in Europe according to LinkedIn!

    Dublin, Ireland - 19/02/2019



    Approach People provides amazing career opportunities to ambitious professionals. What I love about this company is that if you are entrepreneurial and organised, your opportunity are endless!

    The managers of the Parisian, Madrid and Barcelona office were all current employees who made their way up, starting as International Recruiter and ending up as Manager of an office!

    I really developed my knowledge about the recruitment world but also about the European job market. Being in contact with all the teams in Spain, in Switzerland, in France and in Ireland teach you a lot on the cultural differences in business.

    You also get so many rewards for your hard work with quarterly challenges (to win Ipad, TV, Weekend in Europe, Hugo Boss Suit, pair of Louboutin...etc...), the annual challenge (we can travel to dream locations for a week!), the awards offered during the New Year party and finally the commission structure that is uncapped and start from the 1st euro!

    I am already flying higher since I join them, and it is just the beginning!Thank you Approach People!

  • Very positive work environment

    Dublin, Ireland - 20/05/2019



    There is no such thing as a "typical day" at Approach People - every day is different and dynamic which makes it a very rewarding environment to work in. Management is very approachable and available and cares about every recruiter in the company - I don't feel like a number but like an actual human being that can make a difference in the company overall.

  • Excellent Experience at Approach People
    Barcelona, Spain - 07/06/2018

    Really Great experience at Approach People! Really nice environment to work in and progress in. The fact that we are all speaking different languages is very interesting and the best way to improve our English. Would totally recommend Approach People not only for the benefits, but also for the company itself (great colleagues, managers and environment).
