Andrew is the lead recruitment and safety consultant. Recruitment is predominantly a contract based service. “we love dealing with local companies here in Meath. Our speciality is providing ‘hands-on’ workers to companies involved in food production, engineering, and construction. We get to know our customers well and always look at building long-term relationships”.
Cohort’s safety services are varied and include safety consultancy, preparation of documentation and safety audits. Most of our safety clients are local businesses who need help with their safety management. Andrew is also an expert in farm safety and is involved with training and consultancy with many large farm and agribusiness organisations nationally.

We have recently launched a new suite of online safety training courses, during the Coronavirus pandemic, giving our clients safer and more accessible ways to get their health & safety certificates during these times. Furthermore, we have introduced blended learning, for courses that need a practical exam, reducing the the time spend in a classroom setting by a third.
Our online safety training courses can be found under E-Learning in main navigation menu, where you will be offered a free trial on all available courses when you sign up.
Running a small business is both challenging and rewarding and 2020 has thrown some curve balls at all of us and it has tested the resolve and adaptability of how we do things. Cohort have developed some blended learning solutions to deliver training remotely for the first time. In addition we have launched a suite of e-learning options on our website. These allow training to happen from the comfort of your own home at a time and pace that suits you.
For training that is conducted face to face we have implemented rigorous protocols to keep everyone safe.
Kellie Farrell organises all our courses and also co-ordinates the Covid-19 response.
