About Us

Who we are

With over two decades in Ireland, Kelly continues to support businesses and candidates to achieve their goals.
Our people build devices that save lives, drive your prescriptions around the country, map your roads … and so much more.
We do all of these things onsite and from our recruiting hubs in Galway and Cork for both permanent and temporary workers.
We see people not candidates.  Our specialisms cover:

Business Support | Accountancy | Renewables | Engineering | Light Industrial | Life Sciences

​Our hiring is both local and international.  We payroll contractors. Through Project
Resourcing we offer companies on-demand solutions to supplement their in-house recruitment teams.

About us


We started back in 1946. Our tomorrow is about #WhatsNext.
The world has changed. People communicate differently, absorb information with ever changing tools and devices,
look for jobs in changing ways. Often people are not even looking. We understand this.
Our sourcing is non-traditional, embracing technology and using new ideas and concepts.
We engage with people in the ways they consume media or around their habits.
Everyone is different so we manage them as such. We are unique, you are unique, so
how we work is unique.


Where you'll find us

Over $5bn in revenue | 7,000 employees worldwide | 40+ Countries | Every 37 seconds we find someone work.

All of this is to connect over 500,000 people to work annually.
