BUSY and growing SMEs often struggle to manage their HR and Recruitment processes but Core Resource offers them full yet flexible support.

With Ireland almost at full employment levels according to the CSO, mismanaging recruitment can mean losing talent to a competitor. Retaining existing staff members while ensuring that your business is fully compliant with changing employment legislation add more headaches for SMEs.

Core Resources gives business owners more time to focus on what makes their businesses thrive by managing their HR and Recruitment needs.

Geraldine-O'BrienGeraldine O’Brien, founder of Core Resource, promises to give extra support to businesses when they need it without the expense of employing a full-time HR manager. She has a number of satisfied clients for her existing virtual assistance services.

“Core values are pivotal in running a successful business” says O’Brien. “I feel like I’m the beating heart in my clients’ businesses by keeping them ticking over with the support I offer.”

“Adding human resources packages to my existing offerings makes sense as it is such a vital part of any business. Because there is compliance and administration involved it can turn out to be very time-consuming for businesses which are already stretched. That’s where Core Resource comes in!”

Core Resources offers several flexible packages so that business owners can access the HR support they need when they need it most. This can include reviewing CVs, pre-screening applicants, arranging interviews and managing post-interview administration tasks.

As well as managing recruitment, Core Resource can offer ongoing HR support to safeguard against risks, ensure compliance and help business owners to avoid potential legal pitfalls.

“Core Resource safeguards your business’s most valuable resource, your people” says O’Brien.

O’Brien’s skills as a virtual assistant is evident in what her existing clients say about her. “Thanks to Geraldine I’ve been able to ‘make time’ for my business and its growth. Having someone I trust will do the work with the same pride and attention to detail as I would is important. It also means that my business continues to run on a day to day basis while I put my attentions and actions into building the future business. She’s a joy to work with.” Siobhan Fitzpatrick, Director of WIBN (Women in Business Network).

“Honesty, commitment, hard work and loyalty spring to mind when you think of Geraldine O’Brien according to Declan Joyce, Principal Solicitor at Kelly Colfer Solicitors.


Core Resource will continue to provide virtual assistance support to valued clients alongside the new human resources packages.

Geraldine O’Brien who is based in New Ross, Co. Wexford, has an Honours degree in Business (BSS Human Resources) and experience working at every level of management in nine different industries.
