Osborne Blanchardstown 3rd Birthday


Osborne, one of Ireland’s leading recruitment specialists, celebrated the third anniversary of its Blanchardstown office opening in October. Since opening its doors in 2014, the expert recruitment consultants at Osborne have placed over 1,800 candidates in temporary, contract and permanent roles in Blanchardstown and the surrounding areas. Led by Business and Recruitment Manager, Cloe Stapleton, and Commercial and Training Manager, Ayesha Thompson, Osborne Blanchardstown offers expert recruitment services in a range of sectors including Office & Secretarial, Accountancy & Finance, Healthcare, Executive & Legal Appointments, Technical & Engineering, and Industrial.

Commenting on the branch’s most recent milestone, Cloe Stapleton said: “As the most experienced professional recruitment team in the area, we are proud of the positive change we have implemented in the lives of our candidates and clients over the last three years. By placing the right people in the right roles, we help drive employment & job creation in the Dublin 15 region and we also support and partner with a wide range of local organisations, including many of the community’s most reputable employers. Through our 100% commitment to raising the standards in recruitment in Ireland and abroad, we offer full expert support to our candidates and clients”

Adding to this, Chief Executive Officer, Anthony Cooney from the Fingal Chamber, said: “The Dublin Enterprise Zone has emerged as an economic hub, as a result of significant investment in hard and soft infrastructure by the IDA, Fingal County Council and private enterprise. We currently have quite a number of internationally, well-known, blue chip companies operating within this area, which is great for the local Blanchardstown population, which has reached 100,000 recently. Osborne operates a successful office here and the team is an integral part of the business fabric of the area.”

Since taking the helm in 2013, CEO Shona McManus has seen the consultancy go from strength to strength. Under Shona and her team’s strong and focused leadership, the consultancy has seen a growth over the past four years with the Osborne team quadrupling its turnover, increasing headcount six fold and expanding to a total of three new offices with a footprint in Canada.
