Gemma’s Experience with Equifax UK
She was successful at interview with Equifax Credit Reference Agency, the Worlds’ largest Credit Reference Agency, where she joined the new team of Telesales/Telemarketing in Wexford, selling services to the UK. Gemma remained here for two years.
There was a decision made however to close this department in Wexford and move it to the UK offices at Birmingham. Gemma was the only team member to be approached and offered a promotional move to the UK to train the UK on the Commercial side of the business and to continue in a Sales capacity. She accepted the offer and at the age of 19, upped and re-located to Birmingham UK.
Gemma enjoyed huge success working with Equifax UK and won 11 awards in 12 months for outstanding achievements in sales and revenue generation for the company.
Gemma’s Career in Recruitment
In 1999, Gemma became interested in the world of recruitment, therefore set about researching companies in this field. Before long she attended an interview and began work at Certes Computing. She began work with Certes Computing, a reputable IT Recruitment company based in Solihull, Birmingham. She gained great experience here and after 6 months, was approached by a head hunting agency regarding a position with Adecco Recruitment Solutions, the Worlds’ number 1, in Recruitment Solutions. She attended an interview and was offered a position to work as a Consultant for them at their Wolverhampton branch. Gemma accepted the offer and started her career with Adecco on 3rd March 2000.
Her success began very early on with Adecco, where she won 3 awards within her first year, bringing her branch from bottom of the league to 2nd in her region. When she made the decision to re-locate to Cambridge, she was offered to stay with the company and take on the role of Permanent Consultant with the Cambridge branch. She gladly accepted and continued her repeated success at the Cambridge office. She trained new Consultants to the region and offered support and advice to all colleagues she worked with.
Gemma Returns to Ireland
In 2003, Gemma was getting itchy feet and was longing to return to her roots in Ireland and made her feelings known to Senior Management within the organisation. In February, Gemma was approached by the UK CEO and offered the opportunity to return to Ireland and set up the new Waterford branch of Adecco and manage the Southeast division. She delightfully accepted the promotion and on 03rd March 2003, launched the Adecco Waterford Offices. Gemma had great success with Adecco Waterford for over two years, however in September 2005, a global decision was made to close over 50 branches throughout England and Ireland. Unfortunately, one of those branches was the Waterford branch. The offices closed on 07th September 2005.
Gemma gave birth to her daughter in November of 2005 and since then has thoroughly enjoyed her active role as a Mum.

Gemma stayed in contact with all of her colleagues and clients alike and due to constant requests, along with her urge to enter the working arena again, she made the decision to open her own Recruitment Consultancy in 2006.
She offers candidates and clients alike, a service that stands out from the other agencies, spending the time to really get to know and understand both her candidates and clients requirements and needs fully. She hopes to build strong and long lasting business relationships throughout the country over the coming years and bring her company to great success.
