Good News Story…Brian O’Connor Promoted to Senior Associate

We’re delighted to announce that Brian O’Connor has been promoted to Senior Associate with Barden’s accounting and tax practice. Brian is part of our newly qualified team in Dublin, and is an expert in recently qualified accounting careers.

A core part of Brian’s role is working directly with newly qualified accounting professionals and helping them to identify and map out their future career path, and secure their ideal roles.

“Brian has been through one of the greatest rollercoasters of anyone I have known that has made a career change from accounting to recruitment.  Joining Barden just before the first lockdown Brian has seen recruitment at its very best and its very worst, all in under 24 months…but wow has he risen to the challenge.  Brian is smart, articulate, caring, considered, incredibly hard-working, and phased by almost nothing – a great recipe for success in Barden.  Congrats on your promotion Brian – first of many I’m sure.” – Ed Heffernan | Managing Partner | Barden

“I’ve really enjoyed my time with Barden over the last year and a half. It’s been a pleasure getting the chance to meet and work with so many candidates and clients across lots of different industries. Being able to help newly qualified accountants who are making their first move from practice, by using my own personal experience, is something I really enjoy and look forward to continuing into the future. There’s a great team here in Barden which for me is the most important aspect of any job.” – Brian O’Connor | Senior Associate | Barden

Well done Brian from all your Barden buddies.
