Bridget Purcell

I began my professional journey with a major multinational company that established its presence in Dublin during the late ’90s. This foundational experience shaped my work ethic, emphasising a paramount focus on delivering excellent client service. Establishing personal connections with clients, attending meticulously to their detailed requests, and seeing projects through from inception to completion were imperative, setting high standards as the norm.

Subsequently, I transitioned to Senior Accounts roles in both the Big Four and a renowned Irish Media Company, significantly contributing to my success in Finance Recruitment.

The next chapter of my career unfolded at a boutique recruitment firm in Dublin city, where I spent 11 years progressing from a recruiter to a Senior Manager. Working alongside some of the best recruiters in Ireland, I gained unparalleled experience. Notably, former colleagues from this period now helm prominent recruitment agencies in Dublin.

In the course of my career, I took a meaningful hiatus to explore the world and collaborate with Youth Train, where I developed a course guiding students toward workplace readiness, imparting CV and interview skills.

In essence, I bring 15 years of extensive recruitment experience, with diverse employment stints contributing to a nuanced understanding of client and candidate needs, facilitating ideal matches.

Recognising the pivotal role our professional lives play in our overall well-being, Purcell O’Leary was founded with the purpose of ensuring a harmonious match between candidates and roles, fostering happy and fulfilled lives.
