Accountancy/Audit is a challenging and rewarding career. Although the work can be hard, the benefits, such as salary, career security and career development prospects, once qualified outweigh the amount of overtime worked and the length of the contract.

Many of my friends now are working with Deloitte in Australia or New Zealand and there are options now to work in the US also. With Deloitte there are many opportunities to transfer to other Deloitte member firms all over the world!

25 New Jobs for Kilkenny with TransferMate

In Kilkenny, foreign exchange company TransferMate is seeking to recruit 25 people to its business development and sales staff.

The Irish-owned Company is accepting CVs from today with a view to conducting interviews in the coming weeks.

The company is seeking to hire business development and sales staff to assist clients based in Europe, North America and Australia. The jobs will be based at the company’s 24-hour call centre in Kilkenny.

TransferMate human resources manager Stephen Hickey said the new positions were immediately available, adding that interviews would take place in the coming weeks. He said the company added 15 new jobs in Ireland last year, while also expanding its team in the US, Australia and UK.

Barry Dowling, managing director of TransferMate Global Payments, said companies now have an alternative when it comes to making their foreign currency payments and despite having offices worldwide. “Companies across Ireland and the UK have downsized over the past 3 years and are seeking more cost effective ways of saving money…Instead of incurring approximately 3 per cent margins using the banks Transfermate can make them savings both on the exchange rate and on banking fees along with eliminating administration”.
