I was recently taken through a re-location process from Finland to Dublin,Ireland to work as a registered nurse by Maria Curran of Agc Healthcare.I am very grateful for the extensive support that she provided throughout the re-location process.She was recommended by an acquaintance of mine who had used her services before and was pleased with her. She fully offered her support from the first day I made contact with her via email and later by phone to the days of my interviews where she provided potential interview questions beforehand and always called back after every interview to find out how it went and how I was. I would describe her as extensively supportive, prompt in correspondence and patient. The most significant things that she did was always calling me back after every interview to check up on me and find how the interview had progressed and spending a substantial amount of time with me on my date of arrival after picking me from the airport to help find accommodation. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to others. She is great on follow ups and personal touches.

My Names are Duncan Gathimba from Nairobi,Kenya and i am a staff Nurse at Swords Nursing home in Swords,Dublin. I was previously living in Finland for the last five years where i did my bachelor’s degree in Nursing.I got to learn about Maria and AGC healthcare from a friend of mine who at the time was applying for his PIN number from the NMBI. He gave me Maria’s email address and i emailed her with my CV and phone number and she contacted me within the hour. She contacted me frequently to know how i was getting along with the PIN registration after which she arranged skype interviews with several  prospective employers. After the several interviews i settled on one organisation and she briefed me on all the documentation needed for the work permit and visa application. Maria also liaised with my employer to find suitable cheap accommodation which was closer to my work place therefore before i left Finland i already had a place to stay in Dublin .Maria collected me from the airport and took me for lunch before taking me to my work place for a quick tour of the home.She personally introduced me to the assistant manager at the home and other nurses after which she drove me to the supermarket to get some supplies.Maria later drove me to my new residence with all my luggage and to date it’s been six weeks and she calls often to find out how am getting on. I would recommend AGC Healthcare because I had a very good experience corresponding with them because whenever Maria was not available i was able to talk with her colleagues and get some answers to any question i had.The whole journey from when i started applying for the PIN to finally coming to Ireland was very pleasant and they supported me every step of the way. I would recommend them 100% to anyone including all my friends because AGC Healthcare went out of their way to make my relocation to Ireland as smooth as possible.

I will be working as a Staff nurse in Beaumont Hospital after my Adaptation Program.

I came from the Philippines. I have been in contact with Maria (AGC Healthcare) via Skype, emails and sometimes thru my mom, who is in Ireland.

I am very grateful that she was able to help me find an employer, who will provide my adaptation program; in processing my AWS permit and; for supporting us in bringing my daughter here.

Currently, she is guiding me in settling in by arranging my accommodation which will be shouldered by my employer during my Adaptation program. She provided me details about my uniform. She will show me Beaumont as well.

I am lucky that I have a family and Maria here to show me around because it will be challenging to stay in a place that you do not know anyone.

I would recommend AGC healthcare as they will guide you in every step and they will do their best to help you in any way.  They will do their best to choose the best hospital that fits your professional goals and personality.

Good communication is the key!

I found AGC healthcare through an Internet search of healthcare recruitment agencies in Ireland.
I was eager to return home from England to work in a nursing position in Ireland. Maria from AGC was genuinely helpful and positive about getting me interviews in the roles I was interested in and giving me advice on interview preparation. I think She went above and beyond her role to help me secure a job which I did after my second interview. I am grateful for all the help and advice given to me. Thank you AGC healthcare,

I have been a nurse for 12 years, I am from Spain. I was living in Galway went I got my register number as a nurse to work in Ireland. I sent it by internet to the agency where Maria is working, and she call me really quickly. I had interviews by my own before, but any of them were satisfactory. However, when I gave all my documentation to Maria one Monday I got 3 interviews in Dublin in the same day, that week.

I was so nervous, but I felt that Maria supported to me. I prepared the interview with her.

She came with my to the interviews. And I got the job in Blackrock clinic. Where I started to work as soon as I got accommodation in Dublin.

I am so happy to the work that Maria did for me, she is friendly person, very professional and she made my confidence back.

I hope that this help to her and another people to progress in their career.

Thank you so much Maria.

I came into contact with AGC health care a year ago. I was applying for nurse jobs as I had just qualified as a psychiatric nurse. I put my CV up on and Maria contacted me informing of roles they had in Dublin. She took care of necessary paperwork and arranged interviews. She also rang before and after interviews asking how I was and offered advice. I was working full time as a nurse shortly after and I am still working. I would recommend this agency

AGC Healthcare played a big role in my search for a new job.

The personal support they provided during the course of my job search was superb. Their dedication and perseverance assured me that I was more than fairly represented with my future employer. The speed and professionalism with which they managed to secure a job interview for me was pivotal.

I highly recommend AGC Healthcare should anyone need assistance in securing that much coveted healthcare post!

– Theresa Jereza, Clinical Nurse Manager2

As a person fresh out of college and no previous experience of permanent employment, AGC healthcare made a daunting experience very easy and stress free. The employees showed patience and interest in seeing me succeed in gaining employment of my choosing.

I found AGC healthcare on a jobs vacancy website and found it very easy to use.After being successful in gaining an interview. AGC healthcare helped me prepare for my first interview. They telephoned me with mock questions and this helped increase my confidence and put me at ease. They also detailed directions to the location and helped organised a time which suited my schedule.I would have no qualms in recommending AGC healthcare to friends or family looking for employment or in recommend AGC healthcare for advertising a job vacancy post.

– Louise Garvey, Community Support Worker

I found AGC Healthcare to be really helpful in assisting me to find a new job. I had just finished my Healthcare course and was very unsure of how to proceed as this was a complete career change. Maria was detrimental in helping me secure an interview for my current job and was very supportive.  I am now in my current job six months and I love it! I would recommend AGC Healthcare to anyone looking to secure work in the healthcare sector!

Nurse Bank contacted me with a job opportunity. I didn’t have to do any of the work. I viewed the position and liked what I saw.

Once I showed my interest, Shannon did all the work from there. They didn’t waste any time. I just returned the forms and they looked after the rest. They initiated the contact, I fitted the requirements and the deal was done.

Shannon keeps in touch and makes sure both parties are happy with the ongoing arrangement. I never have to worry about payment. It is in the bank every week without fail. Professionalism and no fuss arrangements is a priority for me, as I am so busy.

I happily recommend Nurse Bank to similar Healthcare Professionals/Clinicians.
