Mr Rush also referenced the opinions of his clients who are increasing servicing global entities, “Professionals from N.Ireland that are working in London, Dublin, Europe or North America or further afield are viewed as highly attractive prospects due to the international experience that they have gained and the extra knowledge they bring to specialist teams.”
