As a Co-Founder of Savvi Recruitment Consultants, I lead the Finance and Accounting Division. I am a qualified Financial Advisor with 15 years' banking experience.
Previously I worked as a Treasury Relationship Manager in Anglo Irish Bank before moving into program/project management, working with companies and teams on specific projects ensuring they were delivered on budget and on time. My previous experience gives me the advantage of really being able to understand the client needs and I can identify the best people who can add value to their companies.
In my spare time I love to play tennis and follow Tipperary hurling and Munster rugby. I still hold on to the dream of one day I will play on centre court in Wimbledon!
As Co-founder of Savvi Recruitment Consultants, I lead our Executive Search division.
I spent my early career as a Chartered Tax Advisor advising some of Ireland’s leading entrepreneurs and their families. I really enjoyed getting to know their individual success stories (and failures along the way) and relished the opportunity to gain such an insight into so many successful businesses.
Financial recruitment gave me the opportunity to develop my own commercial acumen whilst utilising the knowledge of financial markets and relationship management skills I developed in tax.
I am highly commercial and having worked with many entrepreneurs and business leaders in my career and now being a business owner myself, I have a keen understanding of the skills and traits my clients need to build successful businesses.
I’ve been in recruitment for longer now than I care to admit (15+ years), always within the financial services sector and with a current focus on risk and compliance. With an academic background in English & Philosophy (no jobs) and postgraduate in journalism and communications (no jobs either back then), I made the move into marketing in my early career before transitioning into recruitment after a couple of years. Many people say they fall into recruitment, but I made a conscious decision to enter the industry as I thought it was the perfect sector for a combination of marketing (storytelling), relationship building (listening) and making money (my marketing job was not well paid).
I’ve always worked on the agency side of recruitment as I think there is more autonomy, in that you get to choose who you work with on a variety of different roles. I joined Savvi in 2021 as their ethos of knowledge led, people centric and value add recruitment appealed to me. If you are looking to make a career move or build your team, I am always interested in having a conversation to see if we can help.
After 20+ years’ in Financial Services, 18 of which with the same Company, and various roles, I took a career break to focus on Family and wondered would I ever find another forever work home, and then Jennifer came along and provided me with the opportunity to do what I love the most – talk and deliver success!
Having graduated with a B.A. Economics and Philosophy (Hons) from Trinity College Dublin, I have extensive experience across Project and Operations Management in the Fintech & Investment Banking industries.
I obtained a BA in English and Sociology, followed by a Masters in The Representation of Gender and Sexuality in Literature and Culture from Maynooth University. Throughout my time in college and since, I have worked for businesses that allowed me to gain skills and experience in areas such as manufacturing, data analysis, team coordination and time management.
When I became aware of Savvi Recruitment and the care they take in making sure people find a work place that is right for them, I knew my passion for creating work spaces that are as inclusive and positive as possible would be compatible with the company. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work for Savvi.
I am a qualified podiatrist with 5 years of clinical experience in both acute care and private practice settings across Ireland. I completed a Master of Research degree in 2019 on the topic of wearable sensor technology and chronic wounds. I have a keen interest in all things research and have since published the research findings in the Journal of European Wound Management 2021.
I moved to Portland Oregon USA in 2020 and worked as a medical scribe for a family medicine doctor. My role was to accurately record the entire physician interaction with each patient, providing advanced support to the doctor and patients alike.
My podiatry and medical scribe careers enhanced my genuine curiosity of people and their stories and allowed me to understand the importance of building deep relationships when providing a service. Given my background and keen interest in organisation, research and attention to detail, I will work as a Recruitment Coordinator with Savvi Recruitment Consultants and strive to bring a high standard of care to clients and candidates to get the best results.
