I began my career with a large multinational company which had just arrived to Dublin in the late 90’s. It was my first professional role and I feel formatted my work ethic to a point. The primary focus was providing an excellent service to clients. Personal relations with the client, attention to clients detailed requests and completing the request from start to finish was imperative. High standards were a given.
I then moved to Senior Accounts roles in Big Four and a well know Irish Media Company which is a contributory factor to my success in Finance Recruitment.
My career, then took me to a boutique recruitment company based in Dublin city, where I worked for 11 years. I began as a recruiter and finished as Senior Manager. It was a very successful company and I worked with some of the best recruiters in Ireland there. The experience I gained is unparalleled. Some of my former colleagues now run prominent recruitment agencies in Dublin.
During my career, I also took time out to travel the World and work with Youth Train to develop a course guiding the students into the work place, cv and interview skills.
In a nutshell, I have 11 years’ recruitment experience which will hopefully instil your confidence in my work, I must also add my employment in different companies are all a contributory factor to my understanding of client and candidate’s requests, needs and making that match.
We spend most of lives in the workplace with our colleagues. It is so important that you are suited to the role you are working in for a happy, fulfilled life.
