We’re delighted to announce that Bernie Duffy has been promoted to Senior Associate with Barden.

“I am absolutely delighted to be progressing my career with Barden and hugely grateful to Elaine, Ed and everyone in Barden for supporting and helping me with the transition from accounting into recruitment, which is definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made!

I am delighted be able to use my qualification in a different way that is much more suited to my personality and allows me to help and advise people on their journeys. I am excited to continue my role in changing lives and look forward to seeing where the future brings us.” Bernie Duffy | Senior Accountant | Barden Leinster.

“Bernie joined us in November 2021, having just completed her training contract through ICT Audit in EY Dublin. I knew at our very first meeting that Bernie personified all that it was to be ‘Barden’- she is smart, driven, empathetic and understanding.

She has spent the last almost 2 years really honing her trade here at Barden and her natural caring and fun nature is a joy to see every day. It is with great pleasure that I announce Bernie’s promotion to Senior Associate.” Elaine Brady | Managing Partner | Barden Leinster

“It’s hard to believe it’s been 2 years since Bernie first joined the team here in Barden. She has been a pleasure to work with, has a natural talent for building relationships with people and keeps us all on our toes! This promotion is more than deserved and I’m sure there will be more to come”.Brian O’Connor | Team Lead | Barden Leinster
