Donal O'Donoghue
Managing Director

I work with our clients to understand their business strategy and the people plan required to deliver that strategy. Whether it’s designing resourcing solutions for permanent hires or developing RPO or MSP solutions, for me, it’s all about creating customised programs that add value.

I work with organisations on cultural analysis and leadership development, improving team dynamics to achieve high performance. After 25 years in the recruitment and talent management business, I’m still passionate about the role we play as labour market enablers. I’m a regular speaker, media contributor, and radio panellist. I represented Ireland as an international athlete for many years, winning European and World silver medals and a World Cup along the way. If you are looking to solve talent, strategy or leadership challenges or need career advice to help you land your dream job, I’m here to help.

 Imran Jiwo Associate Recruitment Consultant – IT

I work within the IT department at Sanderson and work on both permanent and contract roles. I graduated from Maynooth University with a BBS degree in International Business. Once I completed my degree, I always knew I wanted to travel and made the decision to move to Vancouver, Canada, for almost a year. During this time, I completed a Human Resources internship which focussed on recruitment. This internship piqued my interest in the recruitment industry, and from here, I knew it was what I wanted to do.

Recruitment gives you the opportunity to speak and connect with people from all sorts of backgrounds, it also gives you that fulfilment of helping a candidate to land a job. Recruitment has given me the opportunity to help both our candidates and clients succeed, so if you are looking for the next step in your career, please feel free to reach out.
