The Continuous Evolution of the Recruitment Industry

National Recruitment Federation is delighted to partner once again with the Cork Chamber to once again bring you relevant industry updates, information and some important industry tools for the continuous improvement of the recruitment industry.

At the event, we will hear about Talent Acquisition and Retention from Dublin City University Professor David Collings. Professor Collings was on the faculty at the University of Sheffield Management School, at the National University of Ireland, Galway and has researched and consulted with a number of multinational companies in the areas of global mobility and talent management, with his most recent work focussing on building the links between global mobility and global talent. He is also a recognised influencer on this topic and a regular contributor to academic journals and books.

Karen O’Reilly is the founder of Employmum, an organisation that seeks to match professionals with businesses that are looking for experienced staff to help grow and enhance their businesses. Employmum works with candidates who are actively seeking flexible roles as well as organising workshops for returners and implementing ‘returnships’ for professionals returning to the workplace.


We will also have an engaging panel discussion with industry experts including:

Ed Heffernan,  Managing Partner at Barden Recruitment & NRF Treasurer

Jimmy Sheehan, Commercial Director at Contracting PLUS

Katherine Fitzpatrick, Director of International Relations at Cork Chamber

Professor David Collings, DCU


This event will be opened by Morgan McKinley Commercial Director & NRF Cork Regional Chair, Bryan Hyland.
