Caliber Limited was formed to develop, market and sell the CaliberRecruit database solution designed specifically for recruitment agencies and large companies who provide a recruiting function in the HR department.
The company was founded by John Phelan and Gerard Duffy, who between them have nearly 50 years IT industry experience, having started out as trainee programmers with IBM in Dublin. In May of 2006 they decided to use this experience to create a world beating database application for recruiters. Using the latest technologies and with the assistance of experience in the industry, they created CaliberRecruit.
The industry experience built up by John and his team over many years coupled with Gerard’s world class development skills positions Caliber as a leader in the eRecruitment market space.
John Phelan has been involved in the recruitment software business in UK & Ireland since 1998. Originally selling and marketing the TALENT software package in Ireland & the UK, he has maintained a loyal customer base through his friendly and diligent service. His background is technical and he has worked in Africa, UK, US and Ireland in senior development and latterly management roles.

Gerard Duffy developed a quality assurance system now installed in most of the world's pharmaceuticals and in other FDA controlled industries. In recent years he has developed a salary planning system for both IBM and AIB Group, and a Human Resources system for EBS Building Society, which has since been installed by Statoil and FBD Insurance. His ambition with Caliber is to build a world-class HR and Recruitment system to help corporations manage the change to a more flexible workforce.
