We are delighted to announce the appointment of Sarah Murphy as Director within our Accounting & Tax recruitment practice in Dublin. Sarah is a founding member of the Barden team and, since joining Barden in 2015, has been instrumental in supporting Elaine Brady and Ed Heffernan in shaping Barden into the business it is today. Sarah is the first ever person to be appointed a Director with Barden.
“I cannot imagine life in Barden without Sarah Murphy. Over 5 years, Sarah has shaped the culture in Barden and lives and breathes our values every day. Sarah supports, yet challenges, leads from the front and is never too busy for anyone in need of an ear, a hand… or a glass of wine! Sarah is one of a kind.. she exudes everything that it is to be Barden, and I would be lost without her.” – Elaine Brady | Managing Partner | Barden Dublin
As Director, Sarah will support the broader needs of the business as Elaine’s right hand person in Dublin, continue in her coaching and support of people across Barden, expand her brief as HR business partner to the national team, and continue to work on key mid to senior accounting assignments with select Barden clients in Leinster.
“Sarah was one of the very first people to take a chance on Barden. When she joined, we were but a few people in a windowless room with a dream that we could do recruitment differently. Sarah has been instrumental in shaping that dream and in bringing it to life. Sarah is smart, hardworking, loyal and caring – all of the things we hold dear in Barden. She is also, mostly, a pleasure to work with😊. Congratulations Sarah – I’m very proud of you” – Ed Heffernan | Managing Partner | Barden Ireland
