Good News Story...Lisa Hughes ACA promoted to Team Lead - Recently Qualified Accountants

We’re delighted to announce that Lisa Hughes ACA has been promoted to ‘Team Lead – Recently Qualified Accountants’ with Barden Accounting & Tax in Dublin.

Prior to joining Barden in 2015 Lisa completed a BSc in Finance in UCC. She then gained her ACA qualification through training with KPMG, and went on to complete a Diploma in IFRS from Chartered Accountants Ireland.

Last year Lisa took a sabbatical from Barden, where she spent 9 months travelling and working in Australia and New Zealand. During her time in Australia, Lisa was a Specialist Recruiter in commerce, industry and financial services with T+O+M Executive.

“Lisa joined the Barden business in 2015 directly from her training contract in KPMG – a move that she was born to make! Since joining Barden, she has been instrumental in the building out of the Recently Qualified Team. She’s spent 100’s of hours advising and guiding the next generation of accountants in Dublin and helping them flourish.” – Elaine Brady | Managing Partner | Barden Accounting & Tax

A core part of Lisa’s work is working directly with accounting professionals and helping them to identify and map out their future career path, and secure their ideal roles. Lisa is an honest, loyal and outgoing professional, whose caring nature, coupled with her commercial acumen, means she has made a huge impact on the Dublin ACA market since joining Barden.

“Lisa is exceptionally hard working, committed and passionately cares about what she does, and who she deals with. Her promotion to ‘Team Lead- Recently Qualified Accountants’, is extremely well earned and a role in which she will, no doubt, continue to flourish.”– Elaine Brady | Managing Partner | Barden Accounting & Tax

“We’re humbled by the fact that someone of Lisa’s calibre and ability is taking the step up in Barden.  Lisa exemplifies everything that Barden is about and I looking forward to working with herself and our Recently Qualified Accountant recruitment team as they continue to change what people expect from recruitment in Ireland”  Ed Heffernan | Managing Partner | Barden Ireland

Well done Lisa, from all your Barden Buddies!
