Sligo Hotel

I am very pleased to recommend the services of Welcome Skills.  Carol was absolutely amazing throughout the whole recruitment process.  From the beginning she understood the needs of our business as she has a fantastic knowledge of the market.  Interviews were arranged efficiently and at times which suited our business.  Candidates selected for interview met the required criteria leaving the team with a good choice of candidates to choose from.  Once a candidate was selected, the recruitment documentation was completed in a very timely and efficient manner.  Carol was always at the end of the phone to answer any queries and communicated with us right up until the candidate took up employment.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Welcome Skills to any hotel seeking to recruit new staff.
