Driving unlimited potential


Offering complete talent solutions for your evolving needs, we partner with industry leaders and high-potential startups to help you change the world.

 A History Of Building The Future.

Founded in 2001, Stelfox has a proven track record in IT recruitment, consulting and executive search. Expert problem solvers, under the leadership of CEO Phil Carr, we are here to help you find your dream job and build world-class tech teams from scratch all over Europe.

Specialists in tech, we have successfully placed candidates at every level. From graduates to C-level, we’ve done it all and we can do it for you.

We are incredibly proud of our success supporting FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) and the IDA (Irish Development Authority). We help companies enter Ireland for the first time and establish their European headquarters. Some of these companies have expanded to be among Ireland’s largest employers.

Our guiding principle is that a business can excel and still have a positive impact on the wider world. That is why we are committed to supporting charities like SOAR in Ireland and Indreni in Nepal that change the lives of young people.

How do we do all of this? We are well informed, deliver results on time and earn your trust.
