The Recruitment industry in Ireland is absolutely booming!
Over the past 6 months alone, Ireland has seen an unprecedented rise in job opportunities across Ireland, with particular growth on the Banks of the Lovely Lee, with over 500 startup companies setting up in Cork in the first 3 months of 2018. Cork is predicted to be the fastest growing city in Ireland over the next 20 years, with the population set to treble!
According to an article published in April 2018 by the Irish Independent “overall, a total of 5,347 startups have been established this year in Ireland, working out at 62 new companies a day.” This level of growth is fantastic for the Irish market, and it’s never been a better time to get into the Recruitment industry.
As a career changer myself, I made the move to Recruitment in November 2016, and haven’t looked back since. I came from a linguistic background having studied languages in University, but after almost three years in Localisation Project Management, I took the plunge and jumped into Recruitment feet first!

Throughout the interview process with Morgan McKinley, I was often asked “why Recruitment” – a question you may ask yourself if you’re considering changing careers and are considering a long term career in this industry.
