What our consultants say
What is better than our recruiters’ opinions to get an idea of what it’s like to work for us!
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!VanessaRecruitment Manager - Madrid Office
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!SeanInternational Recruitment Consultant
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!DéborahTeam Leader - Life Sciences Division
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.ChristopheInternational Executive Recruitment Consultant
J'ai démarré l'aventure Approach People à Dublin, courant 2018. Première expérience à l'international ! Évoluer dans un environnement multiculturel m'a permis de grandir très rapidement, aussi bien sur le plan professionnel que personnel !
J'ai aussi pu travailler 3 mois depuis chez moi en France. Confiance et flexibilité sont à l'honneur dans cette société ! En plus, je peux travailler sur l'intégralité du marché français et même au-delà !MorganInternational Recruitment Consultant
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.AdelineTalent Acquisition Manager

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.
- 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 🙂

Pros: Inclusive work environment with a great culture. Great leadership, supportive & challenging in equal measures. Clear progression plans are on offer if you are willing to work for it Strong commission structure. Rewarded and acknowledged for hard work regardless of billings Great social team organizing events to cater for all team members . I genuinely love my job and there are not many people that can say that nowadays.

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!
- 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.
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.
