Aspect have proven to be a great support to Specialisterne, especially in the Cork area. Specialisterne often receive referrals for potential candidates from Aspect, where the Aspect client feels that they would be a good match for our services. Specialisterne then work with these clients offering Interview Skills programmes and, in some cases, providing interview opportunities within our partner companies.
