Now that you're qualified, step up with Barden in Dublin

Every May/June and Sept/Oct the audit, restructuring, tax and consulting teams in accounting firms begin to empty.  Some recently qualified accountants are promoted to Manager, but many move on to industry, making room for the next grad intake and the semi-seniors coming through the ranks in practice. So it has been and continues to be….

A large number of local and global businesses call Dublin home.  Dublin hosts an impressive array of companies across financial services and industry with structures varying from global business hubs, to manufacturing/development sites to shared services centres to strategic business units, big and small and, of course, global HQ’s for Irish and US business.

Practice’s loss is industries gain.  Every year companies large and small engage local partners like Barden to identify the best and the brightest from practice who are ready to make their first steps into Industry.

Most first steps out of practice are into financial accounting (where you learn the business) and from there into financial analysis and other activity.  If you’re planning this move then be sure to check out the Barden Focus Guide for Recently Qualified Accountants here>>> .  If you are finding it tough to make a decision or need advice on things like CVs or Psychometrics then the Barden Recently Qualified Accountant Series here>>> might be just what you’re looking for.  Some of the most interesting roles we are working on in Dublin at the moment include:
