Our Story So Far

100% Irish Owned

Matrix Recruitment Group, originally known as WBS Recruitment, was founded in 1998 by Kieran McKeown, a proud Fermanagh man with a fellowship from the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and over 20 years’ industry experience.

Initially set up as a specialist accountancy recruitment company

Located on George’s Street in Waterford, it was no surprise that WBS Recruitment was initially set up as a specialist accountancy recruitment company. Kieran saw an opportunity to offer a high quality, customer-focused recruitment service to both clients and candidates in the South East of Ireland. Starting with a small team of only two people, the business quickly expanded, opening an office in Tullamore in 2001.

The 2000s were a decade of significant growth and expansion

In 2006, the company re-branded as Matrix Recruitment Group and opened two new offices – Carlow and Athlone – becoming the leading recruitment agency in the South East and Midlands. At this stage, the team had increased to 15 members, and as well as specialising in recruitment for accountancy roles, the business had moved into engineering, quality, IT, office, sales & marketing, HR and customer service recruitment.

Matrix now has 5 offices (including Dublin) and 25 staff across Ireland

Fast forward to 2013 when Matrix expanded into Dublin, opening of its fifth office in Citywest. Today, Matrix Recruitment Group consists of 25 staff, specialising in permanent, temporary and contract recruitment for accountancy, financial services, engineering, manufacturing, quality & laboratory, supply chain, human resources, office support & IT, and sales & marketing roles.

We pride ourselves on ‘specialising in you’. Our mission is to take the time to get to know and identify the needs of everyone we work with to build strong, long-lasting relationships.
