Managing Director of Lincoln Recruitment Specialists specialising in the executive search of senior positions across accounting & finance.

My Advice

"A fool with a plan can outsmart a genius with no plan any day."

Plan your career moves, externally and internally, carefully. Take time out regularly to reflect on what you want from your career and how you are going to get there. Then don't be afraid to take risks if you feel it will achieve this career plan and quitting something that clearly isn't working isn't always bad advice.

My Background

I am qualified ACCA with 20 years experience working in senior accountancy roles within the industrial and financial services sectors. I worked as an Accountant until 1996, when I subsequently left to focus on the recruitment of finance and accountancy professionals. Having been involved in the establishment of some of the most respected financial recruitment brands in the Irish market, I subsequently set up Lincoln Recruitment Specialists in 2008. I recruit staff into major industrial corporates and accounting practices, and I am exclusively retained in several cases. I also hold an MSc in Organisational Management and am a member of BPS, qualified to conduct and interpret psychometric testing as well an EQi testing.
