Good News Story...Cliodhna O’Brien promoted to Associate

We’re delighted to announce that Cliodhna O’Brien has been promoted to  Associate with Barden Accounting & Tax in Cork.

Cliodhna is part of our Transactional and Part Qualified Finance Team in Cork, and is an expert in AP/AR/Payroll & Part Qualified Accountant Careers.

She joined Barden Accounting & Tax in 2018 as our first ever Graduate Associate in Cork. Since then she has worked diligently, become an integral part of team Cork and has been a massive support to all those she has worked with.

“Cliodhna has really impressed us from the start. We are very proud of her, being our first Barden Graduate in Cork. Cliodhna has demonstrated to us “Old Timers” in Barden that the old fashioned approach of aiming to over-deliver for our candidates and clients never goes out of fashion. We’re delighted to have Cliodhna as part of team Barden.” – Jonathan Olden | Managing Partner | Barden Cork

Cliodhna holds a BA Applied Psychology from UCC and a M.Sc. in Work & Organisational Psychology (CIPD accredited), from University of Limerick. Before joining Barden Accounting & Tax Cliodhna was Head of Customer Service with Dairygold Co-Op while studying.

“Job satisfaction and well-being at work is something that stood out to me throughout my study of Organisational Psychology. I absolutely loved learning about what makes organisations run well and what makes the people in these organisations happy and satisfied at work. My role in Barden enables me to help organisations find the right person for the role and the company, which has positive results for both the person and the organisation. I go to work to help people find happiness at work ,which is pretty amazing. I particularly love preparing people for interviews. The best one on the day gets the job not the best one for the job! Preparation is key and I really enjoy helping people out with this.” – Cliodhna O’Brien

Cliodhna is helping people to achieve their ambitions and make their professional futures happen.

Well done Cliodhna from all your Barden buddies.
