John Egan

With a keen interest in client relations, recruitment is the career for me. My role is to build and maintain client and candidate relations while sourcing and placing top talent throughout Ireland. I enjoy working with candidates from various backgrounds including .Net, Java and QA. Coming from a sporting background I enjoy the competiveness of the IT Recruitment industry and the challenges involved.


  • John (Egan) is very approachable and competent. He helped me in finding the right place to continue with my career, and did so very quickly.

    He is always timely in providing feedback and assistance, and was open to feedback of my own to enable us to focus on the best opportunity available, in line with my skills and competencies.

    I highly recommend John to anyone looking for new business opportunities in IT in Ireland.

    • John Ryan
  • I would like to recommend Solas Consulting as a recruitment agency. Solas were extremely efficient in finding the ideal role for me, I was able to sign a contract with the first company that they arranged an interview with. During the process John (whom I dealt with directly), was always available to answer my questions and always willing to negotiate with the company in order to find the best conditions for both parties. A huge thank you to both John and Solas.

    • Cristina Hinojosa
  • I don’t normally write recommendations, but after working with John and the Solas team I have decided that I need to write a glowing one. When John first contacted me I taught he was just like any other recruiter, after my contacts and basically just one of those “recruiter-spammers”. Little to my surprise he was genuinely interested in me and my CV. He has put me in touch with some brilliant companies and he hooked me up with a brilliant job opportunity. He was kind enough to provide feedback every step of the way. John and the rest of the Solas Team are true professionals, they were very respectful and properly managed my expectations throughout the whole process. I am very grateful to have worked with Solas Consulting
