    I worked at CPL Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I moved to Dublin from Derry for work and Cpl really helped with my transition down there. Being someone without any recruitment experience I was given a lot of support to ensure I was able to fulfil my duties.
    The company offers fantastic well-being initiatives and I loved getting to Pilates after a stressful Tuesday in the office. I've had many jobs and I have never experienced the warm and exciting atmosphere like I did at Cpl.
    I worked in the Technology team, my managers were incredibly helpful, encouraging and really built me up and raised my working confidence and self esteem.
    If you are determined to work hard, earn good money and enjoy being around lovely people I would definitely recommend you to apply for a job at Cpl.

    Cons

    Cpl is a very sociable workplace, the people are fun and the fun could sometimes spill over to after working hours when pals gather for a few drinks in the local Smyths across the street. There are a lot of eateries around Cpl also which can be tempting at lunch time. So I'd advise you to bring a packed lunch and keep the guinny to a minimum to avoid packing on the lbs!

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to management, only praise and gratitude. So thanks for having me and allowing me to join your fantastic team at Cpl Technology.
