Barden are delighted to announce that Bernardo Pina has joined the team as Partner with our Legal practice.

Bernardo is an expert in recruitment within the legal, company secretarial and data protection markets. He partners with and supports a variety of companies and clients across all industries, both in the private and public sector, with a particular focus on in-house legal roles.

Bernardo is a qualified lawyer, having qualified in Portugal through a top tier law firm in the country. Before joining the world of recruitment he practiced in-house for 4 years with IBM and Parexel, two of the leading  multinational companies within the technology and healthcare sectors.

“I’m personally delighted to welcome Bernardo to our team here in Barden. As a Partner-led recruitment firm, it’s important for us that our Partners exemplify the ethics, work ethic and professionalism that we stand for, and Bernardo is an absolute natural fit in that regard – his approach, knowledge, and ability to advise the legal community is second to none in the Irish market.”Elaine Brady | Managing Partner | Barden Dublin

In his new role Bernardo will work directly with Kiara Daly, Managing Partner with Barden’s legal practice, in growing the business and will take on key strategic appointments for Barden’s clients across all sectors.

“We are delighted to announce that Bernardo Pina has chosen to partner with Barden, and Kiara Daly, to continue bringing something different to the legal recruitment space. Bernardo leads with advice first and is a natural fit for the service we provide at Barden. I look forward to working with Kiara and Bernardo with excitement and I am really thrilled to have someone of Bernardo’s calibre on our team.” – Jonathan Olden | Managing Partner | Barden Cork

Bernardo’s appointment represents Barden’s commitment to providing our clients and candidates with the best experience when it comes to recruitment. His experience and expertise further strengthens our commitment to change the way people think about recruitment.

“I am beyond excited and proud to be joining Barden as a Partner in the Legal recruitment practice. My goal back when I traded my career as a lawyer for one in recruitment was always to have a more collaborative interaction with other legal professionals, helping them achieve their career aspirations along the way. I still deeply believe that commercial success comes as a natural consequence of doing right by those we come in contact with. In Barden I found a home that shares the same philosophy and approach to recruitment. Barden is already a strong force in the Legal recruitment market in Ireland and I hope to contribute to strengthen and expand it further.”Bernardo Pina | Partner | Legal | Barden
