We are delighted to announce that Lorraine O’Leary has been appointed as Senior Associate with our IT recruitment practice in Cork.
Lorraine joined Barden as an Associate in February 2021 and has been an integral part of the IT team, supporting Killian O’Leary in growing the IT practice within Barden. She is an expert in IT recruitment with a particular focus on infrastructure and analytics careers.
“Lorraine has been an integral part of the growth of the emergent IT Practice within Barden from the very early days. Having graduated from college, stepping into the professional world can be daunting for many, not to mention having to start a job with minimal support due to having to work from home during the Covid pandemic. This didn’t deter Lorraine and she really excelled in such adversity. Lorraine needed to ‘learn on the job’ and has really utilised her skills to excel in the role of IT Recruiter on our team.
She has displayed fantastic grit and determination when some processes became quite challenging and Lorraine’s resilience has shone through in the various successful assignments she has delivered on. Lorraine is now seen as a ‘Trusted Advisor’ to both clients and candidates and is a dream to work with. To my mind, Lorraine possesses all of the skills required (proactivity, self-management, resilience, common sense, great listening and attention to detail) to make a real success of her future career as a key member of our IT recruitment team at Barden and I’m delighted she’s on my team. It excites me to see her further develop over the coming years. Well done Lorraine!” – Killian O’Leary | Partner | IT | Barden
In her new role Lorraine will continue to support IT professionals in identifying what the best next step in their career might be and in providing guidance and unbiased advice throughout their career move. In particular Lorraine will be working directly with analytics and infrastructure professionals throughout Ireland.
“I am extremely proud to have seen and been involved in the growth of Barden’s IT practice over the last 2 years. Every day I am surrounded by exceptional recruiters who are wonderful humans, and I get to work with amazing candidates and clients. I look forward to meeting many more of these individuals, sharing their successes and I’m excited to see Barden’s IT practice continue to grow.” – Lorraine O’Leary | Senior Associate | Barden
Well done Lorraine!!
