Our Story

The plan was simple.  Find or create the market, and if there isn't one, create it.  Go further and try harder than anyone else to serve our clients and our candidates and enjoy the journey.

The Journey

That journey started in Ireland in the city of Cork. It began with face-to-face meetings and making introductions. Expanding across the South East of Ireland and into Dublin. Then, after a few great years of growth in Ireland, came the inevitable question. What next?  Then we rolled on into London and the South of England. After that we pursued our global ambitions in Hong Kong & Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Shanghai, Dubai, Paris and most recently, in India. But we’re not finished yet. There’s no final destination, no stopping. Where would be the fun in that?


Relentless Commitment

Expectations are not made to be fulfilled. They’re made to be exceeded. Each of us here believes that “good enough, just isn’t good enough”.  We have created an organisation that, at its very heart, believes there is always something more that can be done. We will always learn more, research more, prepare more, try harder, and care more. This relentless commitment to the business, our candidates, our clients and each other is in our DNA. Because if you’re not doing it right, you’re doing it wrong. 


Like-minded People

If you can’t attract great people for yourself, how can you do it for anyone else?
A specific type of person gravitates toward Morgan McKinley: Someone who has an inquisitive nature, who is compelled to find out about people and organisations; Someone with intuition. Someone who values the joy of succeeding; even more than the rewards. Someone who believes in doing the right thing, who choses the ethical path to success.  That’s what our people are all about.


After 25 years

After 25 years the goal is the same. To keep trying harder and succeeding more often than anyone else. We started as a small company with the ambition of a global company. Today we are a global company but with the customer commitment of a small company.

Why Morgan McKinley?

We work hard so you don’t have to. Because we believe you would sooner focus on your core business and spend less time recruiting.

We can do this because of our relentless commitment to preparation and research – we work to understand cultures so that, even before your need arises, we’re ready to deliver. We will always learn more, research more, prepare more, try harder, care more.

Merely meeting your expectations is not our style. We aim to go beyond them.
