Galway’s financial services sector got a boost this morning (Thursday ) with the announcement by Deloitte that it is establishing a Galway office, with the creation of 30 positions.
Its new office will be its fifth location in Ireland and will offer a full suite of services, with a particular focus on audit, accounting and risk advisory, tax, corporate finance and restructuring, and company secretarial services.
The new office will be based in the Galway Financial Services Centre. The firm is recruiting for positions at all levels – from graduate through to manager and senior manager. Roles are open to experienced professionals with audit and tax qualifications, in addition to those who wish to gain a professional qualification with a leading professional services firm.
Brendan Jennings, Managing Partner, said Deloitte is excited to announce the establishment of an office in Galway.
“The city is a global centre of activity for medical technologies and ICT companies, in addition to having a strong indigenous business sector. What’s more it’s an ambitious and fast growing city. At Deloitte, we are similarly ambitious.
“I am confident that there is great opportunity, both for our firm and the business community in Galway. We believe that we have the skillset and breadth of capability, and the drive and ambition, to provide a valuable service to this community. We are very much looking forward to increasing our collaboration with the vast array of innovative and successful companies here to make a real impact for their businesses.”
Gerard Casey, Audit and Advisory Partner, and Dan O’Donovan, Tax Partner, will be leading the expansion into Galway supported by a senior management team. Key personnel on this team include Brian Farrell, a tax director with 13 years’ experience, with a particular focus on advising multinational companies, Irish plcs and Irish indigenous companies; Austin Sammon, an audit director and former managing partner of a Galway city firm for over eight years, specialising in advising private businesses; and Katie O’Connor, an audit senior manager with over a decade of experience advising both international and private businesses.
Gerard Casey said that Deloitte is pleased to be establishing roots in Galway.
“Deloitte has a strong client portfolio in Connacht, having worked closely with companies across various sectors in Galway, Mayo, Roscommon, Sligo and Leitrim for many years.
“The establishment of this office is a sign of our commitment to the area. What’s more, we are looking forward to meeting talented individuals of a similar mind-set who are interested in joining our team.
“We’re enthusiastic about the work we can do together.”Deloitte has almost 2,000 people in Ireland providing audit, tax, consulting, and corporate finance services to public and private clients spanning multiple industries. The Deloitte offices will be based in the Galway Financial Services Centre on Moneenageisha Road.
