About Barden

Founded by Ed Heffernan and Elaine Brady in 2014, Barden has grown organically into a thriving team of accountancy, finance and tax recruitment experts in Dublin and Cork, who strive every day to redefine what finance professionals should expect from recruitment.

Today, we are an entrepreneur-led specialist recruitment practice that’s laser focused on building professional teams and helping accounting, finance and tax professionals make more informed decisions about their future. Many of us in Barden are qualified chartered accountants (ACA) or qualified in tax (CTA). This powerful combination of finance and recruitment expertise is what makes us different. The fact that we put people first and transactions second is what makes us unique.
