Abacus Professional Recruitment is delighted to announce the launch of a targeted award winning  initiative in the coming weeks to inform friends and family that are coming home to Northern Ireland for Christmas to ‘Bring your talent home’.

Abacus who specialise in recruitment of Accountants, Lawyers and IT Professionals are working in partnership with a number of prominent businesses that have made significant job announcements in recent months.  Firms like Allen & Overy, Grant Thornton, EY and Herbert Smith Freehills etc who have all made significant announcements to increase their work force in 2016/2017 and beyond are involved.

Justin Rush, Director at Abacus states that ‘The demand for professionally qualified staff in Accountancy & Finance, IT & Analytics and Legal sectors locally is significant.  Recent job announcements have really boosted confidence within the marketplace.  At Abacus we felt the need to generate awareness of this demand to potential recruits locally and those that are based outside of Northern Ireland’.

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.’

Named #BelfastforLife this initiative aims to highlight the world-class job opportunities that exist locally, as well as all the positive aspects of living and working in N.Ireland via 3 on-line webinar events.  The webinars will be orientated towards Accountancy & Finance Professionals, Legal Professionals and IT & Analytics Professionals, with registrants able to view recorded interviews taken of Senior Executives from the 18 participating businesses.

These webinar events provide a superb opportunity for potential returners to learn about the growth plans, the type of people and skills these businesses look for when recruiting, and the success they have had in appointing returners and re-locators to their teams.  This is a chance to gain insight and perspective from some of the biggest employers of professional staff in N. Ireland.

Understanding that it might be difficult for people to clear the time over the Christmas period Abacus have plans to record the webinar events and have them available for registrants that cannot attend the webinars ‘live’ (however those interested must register).
