In May 1997, Lorna O’Brien Personnel CC t/a O’Brien Recruitment started trading with the intention of “out-servicing the rest” and to provide a fast and honest service to select clients.

As a medium sized owner managed business with quick decision making ability we pride ourselves on being able to be flexible around our clients.

Whether it’s a single vacancy or a multinational recruitment drive, we have the experience, the resources, the databases, the market knowledge and above all the determination to match exactly the right people with the right positions.
Recruitment mistakes are costly. O’Brien Recruitment manages the recruitment process, minimizing the amount of time spent by the client and aiming to eliminate the risk of failure. All risky aspects of a recruitment process are taken into consideration; positioning you our client as an employer of choice, advising on salary, relocation and benefits packages to ensure highly competitive positioning, staying very close to the preferred candidates to ensure acceptance of offer – all of these strategies and many, many more are engaged to deliver a successful outcome.


In late 1997, due to client demand OBR started offering temporary/contracting services to clients. We pride ourselves on supplying a high quality of temporary staff to our clients, this is achieved through thorough screening, detailed interviewing and in-depth reference checking. In addition to this we build strong relationships with our temps ensuring that they fell part of the team.

In addition to providing office support staff on a temporary basis, O’Brien Recruitment continues to successfully staff both inbound and outbound call centres as well as outsourced Finance and Admin divisions.
