Cpl, Ireland’s leading recruitment agency which has 36 offices across 11 countries has announced the launch of Ardlinn, a new executive search company to support the growing demand for corporate leaders within the Irish business sector.
Ardlinn, Director, Áine Brolly who is also CEO of CPL in Northern Ireland, said, “We are experiencing a period of remarkable growth both economically and in terms of employment in Ireland and we see Ardlinn providing a top class bespoke executive search service that will drive competitive advantage and leverage many opportunities for our business at C-suite level. Ireland is a continental and global hub for a number of large international organisations and it is a fundamental and operational necessity that they have access to global leadership talent.”
“As the economic outlook remains very positive with FDI contributing 25% of national GVA, we recognise the need to attract, and keep, talent in Ireland. This will help support Irish-based businesses and ensure we maintain our standing both on a European and global status.
“Our new team of specialist executive recruiters at Ardlinn bring together unrivalled skills and experience and they understand not only what Ireland has to offer top-level candidates but also, with our strong client base, the most attractive and complete packages for desirable candidates internationally,” concluded Áine.
International expertise and contacts
The announcement comes following a strong year of growth in the Irish economy which recorded a 7.8% boost to GDP last year, placing it ahead of any other Eurozone country.
Ardlinn will use its international expertise and connections to provide Irish based companies with the top level C-suite talent they need due to Ireland’s continued status as a global leader in attracting high-value foreign direct investment (FDI) employment.
With Dublin hosting an increasing number of EMEA and global headquarters of large international businesses, particularly within the pharmaceutical, technology and IT industries, Cpl believes support is needed to supply the growing demand within the €250k to €500k salary bracket.
Part of Ireland’s largest recruitment firm
Cpl, which employs 700 people in recruitment, 2,000 in managed services and 10,000 on client sites across its global business, has expertise across many business sectors including technology, professional services, legal, technical engineering and financial sectors.
Ardlinn will maximise the opportunities that continued high-end economic growth presents through the business’ international reach. Cpl has strong connections in core areas of the US such as Silicon Valley in California as well as across Europe and our Director Áine Brolly, a former Senior Vice President of Invest NI in San Francisco, has vast international experience at top level executive recruitment.
As one of 19 recruitment brands to come under the CPL global umbrella, Ardlinn is the first firm to focus solely on retained, executive search within top salaried positions of €250,000 – €500,000 in Ireland.
