about us

Hannah Wrixon

Hannah wrixon

CEO (Creating Exceptional Opportunities)

As recent winner of the Image Magazine Digital & Technology Business Woman of the Year 2019 and Network Ireland’s Business woman of the year Hannah Wrixon, CEO of Get the Shifts is committed to doing things a little differently. From innovative apps to a lively and fun culture Get the Shifts is shaking up the temp recruitment sector.

Our founder and CEO was born into this hospitality and entrepreneurial family, in 1975, and she had her first business at age 11, making stuffed toys – alas most are still in stock! 

Hannah leads a team to bring this new and exciting approach to temp recruitment to Ireland. With a community of over 2500 “Superstars” (temp staff) Get the Shifts can provide a flexible workforce to our clients when and where they need them.

Viv Headshot

Vivienne Crowley


Here at GTS HQ, Viv keeps on top of our day-to-day admin and systems (and gets way too excited about spreadsheets). We like to make sure she has a constant supply of coffee and diet coke; a caffeinated Viv is a happy Viv!

rachel horrigan


Rachels background includes hospitality, event management and the crazy world that is customer service! Here at GTS she tends to dip in and out of each department where needed. As far as hidden talents go…”If I have one, I unfortunately haven’t found it yet! BUT…I still have time – I’m only young!”

Kate is the Get the Shifts’ digital marketing ninja and social media wizard. Her background includes hospitality and event management.  

Kate’s favourite emojis are 🥳 & 🧐 and you’ll rarely find her without snacks (or her camera) nearby! Her motto is “have snacks, will travel” 


Aoife CodyKane

Recruitment Administrator

Aoife is an IADT Media Studies undergrad with a background in digital journalism, customer service, and hospitality.

A self-confessed chatterbox, Aoife’s favourite things to discuss are reading and traveling. When she’s not busy recruiting new GTS superstars, you’ll find her on a train or plane to somewhere strange – with her nose in a book and a large flask of Lyons!


Michael Funk

Michael is the recruitment team’s resident fashionista and pageant mom-to-be.

Originally from Canada, Michael’s experience spans various hospitality and event management positions. Now settled in Galway with his husband and adorably evil cat Róisín, Michael is fluent in sarcasm and is responsible for keeping the team laughing throughout the day!

Originally from Venezuela, Vanessa is the office’s ray of sunshine. With a passion for dancing and Italian food, Vanessa is always smiling, positive, and happy to help.

Now living in Co. Clare with her private chef husband and son, Vanessa is our training and compliance administrator and helps to keep us all organised. Fair warning: she will chase you down until your training is complete!
