Morgan McKinley Announces International Expansion Drive 300 New Roles in Total to be Created Across 10 Countries


Leading professional services recruiter, Morgan McKinley, today announced a global recruitment drive to hire over 300 people over the next three years. This will take its current headcount from 800 to 1,100 people in 10 countries worldwide. Around 80 of these roles will be based in its headquarters in Ireland.

Morgan McKinley has had 20% year-on-year growth this year and has continued to  grow substantially through new and improved service offerings within Banking and Financial Services, Accountancy, HR, Risk, Compliance, IT, Sales and Marketing. The group has seen strong growth in 2015 so far and the outlook going into 2016 remains very positive. The recruitment drive will support further expansion within existing markets in conjunction with additional international expansion opportunities.  Morgan McKinley currently has operations in the UK, Ireland, Paris, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai and Tokyo, Sydney and India.

“Recruiting and retaining talented professionals is the single biggest factor behind our 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 as 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.
