Since its formation in 1976, Kenny-Whelan has expanded its recruitment activities in parallel with the development of the multi-national pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries. These industries began to be established in earnest in Ireland with the opening of IDA flagship Pfizer bulk pharmaceutical plant in Ringaskiddy in 1970.


Recruitment Clients/Customers

During the last 30 years Kenny-Whelan has built up an enviable reputation with the multi-national corporations operating in Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Medical Device, Oil & Gas, and Semiconductor sectors. We have an outstanding reputation for the quality of service we provide in terms of speed of response, quality of candidates available, and flexibility in our business relationships. However most importantly what sets us apart  is , our thorough understanding of the technologies and technical manpower requirements of these industries. This knowledge and understanding is due to the quality and experience of our recruitment consultants. All of our recruitment consultants are graduates in engineering or scientific disciplines, many of whom have masters degrees and/or have worked in these industries for a number of years.


Kenny- Whelan has also built long term relationships with our professional engineering, scientific and technical candidates regardless of whether they are seeking contract employment, temporary jobs or permanent positions. With a database in excess of 10,000 technical candidates we stay in regular contact with our active candidates and keep them up-dated on job opportunities as they arise.  In the growing contractor sector, our experienced recruitment consultants are available to advise on the advantages and disadvantages of entering this mode of working. 

We give advice to those who are contracting for the first time on the advantages as well as the downside of working in the contracting sector. We also give advice on setting up a  limited company or operating under composite company, invoicing, time recording etc, all of which is given free of charge.
