Morgan McKinley and La Créme are delighted to attend the upcoming Bilingual People recruitment fair in Croke Park, on Saturday, 10th March. This event is an ideal platform for you to meet with us and discuss employment opportunities available to bilingual and multilingual professionals across Ireland. We have witnessed a steady increase in demand for multilingual professionals in the last few years. This is mainly due to the strong foreign domestic investment coming in to Ireland.
We recruit across a diverse range of sectors and will have experts on the day to discuss job opportunities within:
- Customer Service
- Office Support
- Sales and Marketing
Don’t forget to bring your CV. This is useful on the day so that we can provide relevant and specific advice based on your skills and work experience. The event is completely free of charge however all candidates must pre-register before the event takes place. We look forward to seeing you there!
When I came back to work after a lovely, long Christmas break, I woke expecting to feel the usual January blues, but I didn’t. I wondered why it didn’t feel so bad to be going back to work and I quickly realised what differentiated me from the January blues people – my job, or more specifically, a job that I really like!
Most people spend over 40% of their waking week at work, that’s nearly half their lives. Although most people just work to pay the bills, can we not work and enjoy it too? I work as part of a global team across nine countries. Thankfully for me, every day brings new and interesting challenges.
Recruiters are tasked with not only finding jobseekers a job, but finding a professional, social and cultural fit a.k.a. a job that the jobseeker will actually like. It’s important that we take the time to recognise the employers’ needs and the jobseeker’s so we can ensure that as many people as possible will wake up in the morning and, like me, go to a job that they genuinely enjoy.
Is your job just a job? Have you looked to see what else is out there?

My name is Tanya Thomas and I am a Regional Manager with Morgan McKinley, covering Tipperary, Waterford, Kilkenny, Wexford, Carlow, Laois and Offaly. I manage a team of specialist consultants who focus on placing people into a range of finance, office support, technical and IT roles.
We are very up to speed with market sentiment and actual reality in our geographical areas. Each day, my team and I field high volumes of calls from candidates with a common theme. “Are we seeing a turnaround yet, is the market outside of Dublin and Cork beginning to improve?”
Unfortunately, the answer to this is yes and no! IT, finance and office support are still relatively slow compared to a couple of years ago. Both multinationals and small/medium sized companies are driving this demand for manufacturing engineers, quality, validation, purchasing, logistics, product development and technical sales.
Historically, as market demand, production and export levels increase the other functional areas are sure to follow as pressure mounts in the shared services areas which support these functions. So please be patient and don’t lose heart. The tide should slowly be beginning to turn…
In my next blog I will look at each of these areas in more detail.
