About Bridget Mcdonnell

I am a Recruitment Consultant specializing in the recruitment of Qualified Accountants in the Commerce and Industry sector.

Specialist Area

I specialize in contracting accountancy and finance roles across Dublin and surrounding areas. I help Qualified Accountants secure contracting and temp positions on both a short and long term basis in some of the best and leading companies in Ireland.

My Advice

As a recruitment consultant offering advice to accountants considering contract accountant positions in Dublin, there are several key points to keep in mind. Contract positions can be an excellent option for gaining experience, building a network, and exploring various industries. Here's some advice to help accountants make the most of their contract roles: Understand the Job Market: Before jumping into contract positions, research the current job market in Dublin for accountants. Look into the demand for contract roles, the types of industries that frequently hire contractors, and the average contract duration. This will give you a better understanding of potential opportunities and help you tailor your applications accordingly. Update Your Resume and LinkedIn Profile: Make sure your resume highlights your relevant experience and skills for accounting roles. Since contract positions can be short-term, emphasize your ability to adapt quickly to new environments and hit the ground running. Additionally, keep your LinkedIn profile up to date and connect with relevant professionals and recruiters in Dublin. Networking Matters: In the contracting world, networking is crucial. Attend industry events, seminars, and workshops to meet potential clients or employers. Building a strong professional network can open doors to new opportunities and referrals for future contracts.

My Background

I joined Morgan McKinley as a Recruitment Consultant on the Accountancy and Finance team in 2022. Before joining Morgan McKinley I was also working as a Recruitment Consultant and previous to this I had spent many years working as a Business Development Manager and Key Account Manager for Luxury Brands. I have a genuine interest in helping people making their next career move and I am passionate about securing people in their respective fields. I hold a (Hons) Bachelor of Business Degree from Technological University Dublin and a Masters Degree in Business from Dublin Business School. In 2022 I completed a Recruitment Practice Diploma from the National Recruitment Federation of Ireland and also hold a QQI Level 6 Certificate in Business Law.
