German term or phrase:gestandene Persönlichkeit
Herr XY ist eine gestandene, konsequente Persönlichkeit...
Explanation: Whatever you do, don't use "personality" in this context for Persoenlichkeit. It's a false friend. Dependable is not the normal translation of konsequent butin the context of a job reference it gets the message across that the person is consistent, tenacious or single-minded without introducing any negative connotations i.e. you can depend on them doing what they set out to do.
