Our people and our training make Morgan McKinley a great place to work

I googled the qualities of what makes a great recruitment consultant.


The First thing that comes up is confidence. When I think of our recruitment consultants, confidence is definitively something that I would think we all would have in common here at Morgan McKinley. A few months back the rumblings of a Morgan McKinley Toastmasters came about. I was in shock to hear that I was not the only person in the business who has a fear of Public speaking but in fact it is very common. Toastmasters is a worldwide meeting, where people can learn by doing a workshop where participants hone their speaking and leadership skill in a no pressure environment. In the last month, we had two successful Morgan McKinley " Speakeasy" toastmaster. People have stepped up including myself to speak for five minutes about themselves. What is worse than speaking in public is speaking in public about yourself.

Professional & Personal goals

For me, this was a massive personal achievement to speak on front of a room packed with colleagues. However the support I got from our organisers Ronan McConville our 'UX 'Recruitment Consultant here in Dublin and everyone in the room was unbelievable. It wasn't. just that I was speaking on front of colleagues but it was a room full of friends. My topic was My Desert Island disc which is a BBC RADIO show which has been around since the 1940's where people are interviewed and speak about the 8 songs they would take to Desert island and their memories behind these songs.I can't say I remember the five minutes of speaking but what I won't forget is the adrenaline that kicked in afterwards. For me, I had just achieved a personal and professional goal of mine and the feeling was great. I have finally taken my first step to overcome my fear of public speaking thanks to Morgan McKinley. An event like this is not uncommon in Morgan McKinley, obviously being a confident public speaker will play a big part in a successful Recruitment consultants career.
