agencies are becoming quite popular last few years, trade is dying.

some companies over reach with their bidding on jobs, then flood the site with agency workers.

less health & safety on most sites,
Pros
some work closer to home
Cons
zero hour contract

The office is good craic to work in. Weekly team lunches and nights out to get everyone bonding.
The work is fast-paced, construction jobs finish quickly so they try to keep candidates in work as best they can they've a few lads on the books a couple of years now. Candidates are easy to talk to as well, appreciate honest recruiters!

Office can be mad busy at times, as long as you have a good work ethic you'll have no issues there. Hence some of the other reviews on here!!


The manager is grand, easy to chat to about progression etc, some of the recruiters became account managers after only a couple of months so again, work ethic rewarded.


I had to leave because I moved to the south, but other than that I'd still be there.

After starting at Sherlock I quickly learned the only person who actually liked working there was the owner, everyone one else was miserable. Very low wage for all employees, no wonder staff turnover is high. Owner does not care about staff, he just wants to make money.

Worked in cork area with them. No complaints. They were fair to me. They are an agency. When they want you to start work. If you can not. Sorry. You have to ask for lodge. They were OK. Just very little work locally with them. They are OK. Would work with them again

Worked for them for the bones of 2 years. Solid outfit. Paid every week no hassles. Got long term work on a site down the road with a good company. Guys in the office are sound enough to deal with

This agency is shocking. Manager could not give a flying frigoly if you or any of his workers dropped dead in front of him. You’re all just money money money to him, he only loves the sound of his own voice. Zero people skills, zero management skills and close to zero pay for the volume of work that’s expected. They judge candidates by their accents or surnames, they aren’t really interested in helping people with their careers at all and the atmosphere in the office is terrible cause everyone’s too scared to speak up. Keep your distance. Then run even further. Disgraceful.

I was extremely excited to start working in Sherlock recruitment as I had high hopes for the role and the new start however, my hopes where very quickly dashed. In the beginning there is a false impression that the manager is supportive and genuinely cares about your career progression and wants you to succeed. This illusion lasted about two weeks then the constant pressure, scrutiny and invasion of privacy at work sets in. The manager does not in any way trust his employees and has a clear lack of management and people skills. I would not recommend anyone to work here as you will unlikely leave in a better career position. No career progression, long hours for little pay and a negative working environment.

A dynamic and fast-paced environment, every day is different. Working with some of the biggest and best firms in Ireland. Hard work, and laugh hard.

It's a sleeves up and get stuck in kind of place, with exciting prospects and really ambitious growth goals. Not a day passes withouit learning, growth and laughter. Love the industry we work our teams on site and the crew internally. Just keep getting stronger.
Pros
Fun and dynamic
Cons
cant think of any atm
