Spotlight Series: Caragh Rafferty | FS consultant in Dublin


What did you do before joining Marks Sattin?

Upon graduation, I secured a position at KPMG as a trainee accountant in FS Audit. After a year I quickly realised that accountancy was not for me, although I still wanted to stay within the industry, that's when I decided to pursue a career in accountancy recruitment. I knew my strengths would be better suited to a people and client facing role and with my exposure to the ACA route with a Big 4 firm, I already had the industry knowledge to be successful in recruitment.     

How has your previous experience helped your career in financial recruitment?

With my background in finance, I can relate to candidates’ experiences as well as understand the terminology whilst consulting and advising what the next best step would be in their career.

How long have you been with Marks Sattin and what area of the market do you cover?

I have been working with Marks Sattin since October 2017. I cover insurance and investment management.

How would you say the Dublin market differs from other locations?

The financial services market in Dublin is really buoyant at the moment with many high profile firms planning to move their business to Ireland in the wake of Brexit, this is resulting in an influx of potential new clients and opportunities, which means I’ve certainly been kept busy!

A random fact about you?

In 2015 I had the great opportunity to take a lion for a walk during my time spent volunteering in Zambia. I also spent a night camping out in the wild during a safari.
