Specialist Area

I specialise in the recruitment of qualified professionals in the Compliance & Risk space.

My Advice

Searching for a new role can be a very time consuming and draining exercise. It is, therefore, vitally important to carefully evaluate your background and experience, with the help of a trusted Recruiter. Focus on your realistic employment opportunities, understand your market worth and know what firms to target, who match your personality and ambition. These are all extremely important factors when beginning your job search. Rather than advertising all of their specialist roles, employers often look to fill vacancies through engaging with a trusted recruitment partner, such as Lincoln Recruitment Specialists. Your job search should, therefore, not just be about sending as many CV’s as you can on job boards.

My Background

After graduating with an Honors Degree in Business Studies, I held a number of Sales and Account Management positions within the Retail sector. I embarked on my recruitment career in New Zealand where I spent over two years with a global recruitment brand focusing on the recruitment of Finance professionals. Since moving back to Ireland in 2013, I have specialised in the Compliance and Risk markets and have built a strong network of candidates at all levels of the market.
