We’re delighted to announce that Tara Higgins has been promoted to Associate Director – Recruitment Partner with Barden. Tara is part of our team in Cork, and is an expert in Operational Finance, Business Support and Data Analytics recruitment and careers.
A core part of Tara’s role is working directly with professionals in the areas of operational finance, business support and data analytics, helping them to identify and map out their future career path, and secure their ideal roles. Tara will also partner with clients to build world class teams in these, and other, areas of business.
“Tara has worked tirelessly on the trickiest of assignments since joining Barden. She did so to enable Barden to grow. Tara loves learning new disciplines and helping us understand new areas. She is one of the most impressive recruiters I have met and this promotion is in recognition of all the outstanding work she has done in helping Barden diversify. I have no doubt she will go from strength to strength from here. Well done Tara!” – Jonathan Olden | Managing Partner | Barden Cork
“I’ve immensely enjoyed working with (and learning loads from) Jonathan and the team in Barden Cork over the past few years. Having joined the office when it was very much in start-up mode, it’s been amazing to see and to be part of the growth story and to work with all of the talented people who have joined the Barden team.
Over the past few years, I’ve enjoyed supporting candidates and clients initially on Operational Finance roles but over the past year or two have broadened my scope to help grow Barden’s presence in other markets such as Data Analytics and Business Support while also looking after Operational Finance recruitment.
I also enjoy Business Partnering with our clients on assignments and projects outside of these areas and have helped some of our clients solve their recruitment challenges across areas including, but not limited, to Supply Chain, Marketing & Sales Ops, Procurement, HR, CRM and Project Management. I’m really grateful for the opportunity to utilise my recruitment experience to help people across multiple disciplines and to have the support of Jonathan, Ed and the team Barden in doing so.” – Tara Higgins | Associate Director – Recruitment Partner | Barden
Well done Tara from all your Barden buddies.
