“Throughout the different regions where we have activities, IRC Global Executive Search Partners has been able to support us in finding strong candidates for the open positions we have had within our fast growing organisation. With a very professional and consistent approach, they have proven to be a true and reliable partner in business. What started as a good relationship with IRC Netherlands has now grown with us throughout continental Europe. I have recommended them and will continue to do so for their excellent work in one of HR's key areas of expertise.”
