With 250 of the world’s leading Financial Services organisations operating within Ireland, Dublin is often seen as the major hub for fund administration and banking jobs, and rightly so.

Take a walk down through the IFSC in Dublin and you will see some of the major global players in the Financial Services industry with their roots firmly planted in the centre. However, for many of you like myself who went to Dublin to kick start their careers, the question often posed is: ‘Are there opportunities outside of Dublin for me to progress my financial career?’

The answer is ‘YES’.

The Financial Services industry has many operations spread throughout Ireland, from Cork to Galway, Letterkenny to Waterford and Limerick to Kilkenny. With over 35,000 people directly employed in the Financial Services in Ireland, one-third of those are employed outside of Dublin.

Since the start of 2015, there has been a sharp increase in the number of opportunities outside of Dublin for experienced funds candidates, and significantly the majority of these are permanent positions.

Our Collins McNicholas Cork Office is currently partnering with leading multinationals in the funds industry who are looking for experienced Fund Accounting Managers, Supervisors and Senior Fund Accountants. Based in Cork City, all these jobs are permanent positions with excellent career progression opportunities. Apply for a job here: collinsmcnicholas.ie/search-results/

For those who have enjoyed what Dublin has to offer but are looking at the possibility of re-connecting with their roots in Cork, these are fantastic opportunities. As a Cork native myself who made the move from Dublin to Cork last year, I can firmly agree with the old adage: “Níl aon tinteán mar do thinteán féin”.
