Aisling leads MA’s Office Support division, working with administrative professionals from junior through to senior level and building valuable relationships in professional services, FMCG, financial services, tech and more. Before joining MA, she had a successful career in the insurance industry where she worked for a number of high-profile multinationals managing key accounts across commercial and personal lines.
Patrick is a member of both Accounting Technicians Ireland and the Irish Payroll Association and holds a Masters in Management. Here at MA, he primarily manages the accounts payable and receivable function, payroll for staff and contractors and assists in collating LinkedIn Insights. Previously, Patrick spent 12 years working in the Not for Profit Sector with Focus Ireland as well as nearly two years in Chartered Accountants Ireland and three years in various other roles in small to medium businesses.
James spent over 10 years’ working in the technology industry before joining MA to lead strategy and transformation. Now he’s responsible for team growth and management, managing key accounts, business development and CxO engagement, driving the entire organisation to create the best possible customer experience for our candidates and clients. In fact, coaching people to be their best is what James loves most about his role.
Elaine is part of the software engineering practice here in MA Tech where she focuses on the contract market and works alongside a team of people who are heavily ingrained in the local technology space. Her client portfolio ranges from large scale tech companies to start-ups. Prior to MA, Elaine spent a year working in recruitment on a tech contract desk and holds a bachelor’s degree in business.
Eoin joined MA in 2014 after three years in Brightwater to lead our Banking and Financial Services division. Since then, he has forged relationships with some of the top financial institutions in the country and oversees a team that’s actively delivering niche, specific hires at scale. When he’s not working, you can find him at the gym, running or cycling.
Armed with both a degree in Marketing & Languages and an ACA qualification, it makes perfect sense that Louise is an Associate Director on the Accounting & Finance team here at MA. Having trained within PwC's assurance team, she made the move to recruitment in 2013 and has since gained a wealth of experience recruiting accountants from newly qualified level to senior finance professionals across a range of sectors and company sizes. She currently recruits mid-senior level accounting positions within industry at MA.
After working a lot of jobs he didn’t like, Andrew knew he couldn’t be the only person looking for the perfect fit. So in 2013, he founded Mason Alexander to place amazing minds in amazing places to work. Now, Andrew drives the purpose, mission and madness of MA — and he isn’t one to hide behind his CEO title. He’s approachable, helps out wherever needed and encourages everyone to bring their ideas to the table no matter what position they hold.
Jenny is MA’s People & Operations Manager — which means that her role revolves around making it easier for the rest of us to do our best work. That’s why she takes home the title of ‘Office Mum’ every year. She recently returned to college after an eight-year break to study Human Resources Management and is leading the HR function within MA. When she’s not focused on employee happiness and satisfaction, you can find her hiking, speed-reading, travelling or doing anything involving dogs.
Caren is obsessed with psychology — she has a degree in it and can spend hours talking about psychological studies, how people’s brains work and understanding what motivates them. So it’s a good thing she joined MA as a business development executive, finding the perfect people to help fintechs in Germany and other EU countries to grow and achieve their goals. Before MA, she worked in business development for a regtech start-up that developed software solutions for anti-money laundering compliance.
Steve’s career in recruitment spans over 20 years of experience in London and Dublin. As Managing Partner, he’s responsible for the direction, growth and success of MA Technology and the leaders of tech community. And while he’s proud of his professional achievements both as an individual contributor in the early days and more recently as a manager and business leader, it’s when he sees someone he hired because of their potential develop and grow into something exceptional that reminds him why he does this.
They say learning never sleeps — and that’s certainly the case for Katie. MA’s Senior Marketing & Communications Executive is never far from a classroom. She holds a BA in Creative and Cultural Industries as well as certificates in Digital Marketing, Graphic Design, Adobe After Effects and Film Production — all of which serve her well as she takes charge of MA’s marketing, graphic design and media output.
Rob is a founding member of Mason Alexander. His non-executive role focuses on national and global client relationships. He also plays rugby internationally for Ireland and is chairman of IRUPA.
Sean works on the business and technology transformation desk at MA, focusing on permanent positions within the PMO space and helping organisations deliver successful change initiatives and realise value through meaningful transformation. A keen food enthusiast, he worked in IT recruitment and financial sales before joining MA and he holds a BA in International Business.
A graduate of both DIT and DCU, Daire spent eight years working in software development recruitment with GCS Recruitment before joining MA. Today he’s a Principal Consultant for the Frontend Software Development market for all permanent hires. When he’s not at work, he’s running, trail running, cycling, taking part in triathlons or trying to stick to his annual reading goal of at least 12 books a year. And while he recently built a house, his proudest achievement was cycling the Ring of Kerry.
An avid traveller, Jasmin has visited almost every country in Europe — only seven more to go! When she’s not busy getting another stamp in her passport or trying a new recipe she picked up on her travels, she’s helping fintechs across Europe find the perfect people to help them grow their businesses and develop cutting-edge technology. Prior to joining MA, she worked as a consultant in multilingual recruitment before moving into technical recruitment, where she worked mainly with start-ups in Berlin, helping them to hire senior back-end developers.
Wexford native and chartered accountant Barry came to MA as our COO in 2018 after spending over two years as CFO of e-commerce SaaS company xSellco. Prior to that he was CFO of Storyful and Finance Manager for Fox International Channels Australia & New Zealand. Today, Barry plays a central role in MA’s leadership team. When he’s not keeping our day-to-day operations efficient and on-track, his spare time is filled with travelling, running, open water swimming, skiing, playing tennis or gardening, and he also sits on the board at Chartered Accountants Ireland.
Before embarking on her recruitment career in 2017, Eva’s experience was in academic research and professional services and she has a BSc in Applied Psychology. She also travelled the world, living in Australia for a while and spending a summer volunteering at an animal sanctuary in Namibia. Today, Eva is our senior researcher across Banking and Financial Services, focusing on candidate generation and regeneration.
Brendan sits within MA’s technology division, working with a core group of IT contractors, mainly in the software engineering space. This fast-paced and diverse role gives him a great team to work longside, all of whom push each other every day to ensure their vast range of clients can scale up their development teams. Prior to MA, Brendan worked in technology recruitment and he holds a Master’s in Business & Arts. Fun fact: he has never in his life tasted Coca-Cola.
Anna’s recruitment career spans nearly 10 years and has seen her progress from admin to her role here at MA as principal consultant in the corporate finance and investment space. Outside the office, you’ll find her being the best Mum possible to her 3-year-old son (her proudest achievement) or ticking another exotic country off her bucket list. Before MA, Anna spent nearly six years in recruitment in both Ireland and Australia. She holds a BA in History and Archaeology.
David is a sports marketing professional with over 20 years of hands on experience managing athletes, working with brands in sponsorship, communications & strategic consultancy.David is experienced as a mentor and life skills specialist, working with high performance sports & professional sports as well as brands, agencies and rights holders.
Fun fact: Aaron’s full legal name has 10 syllables in it. As a consultant with MA Technologies, he currently works in the software engineering space and specialises in the DevOps/cloud contract market. Before MA, he spent nearly two years working in healthcare recruitment as a senior consultant and then moved to Randstad where he worked in life sciences, A&F, sales and marketing, and tech recruitment.
Mark takes the term ‘multi talented’ to a whole new level. He has five All-Ireland cricket medals. He used to be a professional poker player. He even once got a hole in one. This versatility comes in useful in his day-to-day here at MA, building new business across EMEA in the Growth and Digital division and partnering with senior leaders in growing tech companies. He joined MA after a long career in various areas of tech, including running his own start-up, and spent seven years living and working in Australia.
As an MA tech consultant, Ivana is responsible for connecting great engineering professionals with potential opportunities while striving to provide the best customer experience to both sides. This Croatian native and former sales executive holds a Master’s in Finance and a Bachelors in Business Economics but her proudest achievement is being able to work in three different languages and adapt to life in different countries.
James leads the investment, corporate finance and accounting teams at MA. His industry knowledge and strong track record in front office hires means he has an extensive network of relationships across Ireland, the UK, the US and Europe. James holds a degree in Psychology and, with over six years under his belt at MA, prides himself on understanding exactly what his clients need and delivering on that.
Finlay has been with Mason Alexander for 5 years and looks after risk and compliance roles within the banking and financial services sectors. He previously ran our Funds & Banking Operations desk and, prior to joining us, worked in investment operations. He has an Economics degree from UCD and a Master’s from Smurfit Business School.
