“Recruiting and retaining talented professionals is the single biggest factor behind the growth that the business has seen recently” said Pat Fitzgerald , CEO and founder, Morgan McKinley. “Our clients want to work with people with an ability to attract great talent as well and deliver a strong customer experience. Ensuring the very best teams are in place will allow us to put further distance between the quality of our recruitment offering and our competitors, and we’re seeing the growth that proves we’re delivering what our clients want and need to build for the future.”

Morgan McKinley is committed to hiring people with a mix of experience from those that are existing recruitment professionals combined with entrants into the recruitment industry. Over the last three years, the company has significantly invested in rolling out a strong learning and development programme across all business units. This programme has become a springboard for growth and it is planned that the group will continue to invest in this area to support this significant addition in headcount. Morgan McKinley has adopted a customer centric approach to the recruitment process demonstrating real innovation, most recently as part of this programme the company launched a new candidate microsite, the Career Ally Hub to improve the experience of professionals on their career journey with its resource centre.
