With unemployment rates falling below 6% many employers are finding it difficult to hire trainee talent with the right skillset.
At CPA Ireland we have numerous recruitment initiatives in place & we’ve captured some of our employers’ success stories below:
CPA Trainee Placement Service
"I highly recommend the Trainee Placement Service. The process was so easy and helped our firm to quickly meet our recruitment needs. The quality of applicants provided and the support from CPA Ireland was excellent"
- John McCarrick, Principal Partner, McCarrick & Associates
"We are extremely happy with Kieffer.He is very good in every aspect with knowledge, attitude and work ethic. We hope he has a long career ahead of himself in Accenture.”
- Brian Carew, Finance & Accounting Manager, Accenture
"Every year we consistently hire CPA trainees as this route not only enables us to maximise our training budget but also assists us in acquiring a skillset that will help drive our business forward"
- Linda King, FCOS
"We would highly recommend CPA FastTrack. We were looking for an extra resource during the summer months and the FastTrack programme gave us access to high calibre third level accounting students. Not only did Hurley Accountancy benefit from having a FastTrack intern but the student also got to count their work experience towards the three- year training requirement with CPA"
- Imelda Hurley, Hurley Accountancy
CPA Masters & Qualification
"When we heard about the new CPA Masters programme we were in the process of recruiting for trainee positions. The quality of candidate put forward by the CPA was excellent and they were far superior to other candidates we had interviewed. The process from initial contact with the CPA to hiring of graduates was very quick and efficient. We are extremely happy with the new hires and we hope do use this programme again for our 2018 intake"
- Philip Hawkins, HLB Ryan
