I advise international companies setting up in Ireland on their Talent Strategy as well as oversee the Research Department in Morgan McKinley
In your first role post qualification don’t ‘follow the money’ or what feels safe. This will satisfy your needs in the short term but inhibit you reaching your career potential over the longer term. Consider what skills development the position will offer you, what potential career development the company could offer you now and in the future, and whether the culture of the business is aligned to your own personal needs.
Following an initial career in banking and finance - working in Bank of Ireland and Statestreet amongst others, I have worked in recruitment for Morgan McKinley since 2006. I started as a manager of the accountancy and finance desk in Dublin and specialised in the recruitment of senior qualified accountants within industry. I hold a BBS (Hons) degree from DCU where I specialised in marketing. I also hold a certificate in personnel practice from the National College of Ireland, a diploma in employment law from Dublin Business School and, more recently, I qualified as an accounting technician (ATI).
