When it comes to career opportunities for finance professionals, Cork continues to punch above it’s weight.

2018 has been a big year for finance professionals in Cork.  In Barden we have already seen over 80 new roles in H1 alone, with H2 promising to be even more significant in terms of opportunities for finance professionals, at all levels.  Some of these roles are driven by the continued expansion of European/Global Finance Hubs while others are being driven by smaller, innovative, indigenous companies that are really going places.  It’s really an exciting time to be working in finance in Cork.” says Jonathan Olden,  Managing Partner | Barden Cork

Cork is obviously thriving.  And it’s just getting started.

Over the coming months and into 2019 we are investing heavily in Barden Cork to make sure we are ready to meet the demands of the market”, says Jonathan.  “Part of that strategy is to engage with finance professionals looking to make Cork home; or return home to Cork.  The other part of that strategy is to continue to build personal relationships with the top finance talent in Cork so that we can introducing the right opportunities to them at the right time for them.
