As an annual contractor to the Irish Times group I have found that the company and its ethos represents one of fairness. There is a great sense of goodwill towards what we provide in terms of creating a family focused event. The company has always paid well for the service we offer. My dealings with the company have always been one of pure professionalism and our suppliers and staff input has been acknowledged to such an extent that we all feel appreciated by the company. There is never any difficulties with the job unless the elements are against us which on occasion they have been but saying that seeing the excitement and joy on the faces of guests makes all the hard work worthwhile.
