The Employer Search facility on this page gives you special access to our database of over 1000 Irish financial services employers to search for firms and/or groups of firms, using the yardsticks you set up - for example their business activity (choose from the three activity menus below) (clicking on any or all of the company activities listed), and further refining your search by listing companies by their size, and by their nationality. You can also simply enter the name of a company you wish to research specifically.
The information in the database comes from a key resource for jobseekers in the Irish financial services industry - Finance Dublin and the annual FINANCE DUBLIN Yearbook & Directory, which in 2017 will be a special edition marking the 30 year anniversary of the IFSC.
The amount of knowledge you have about a potential employer, and on the industry in which you hope to work, can assist you in your job search. This pertains both to making initial contact with employers and before going to interviews.
When you begin to make initial contacts with potential employers, it is important to have some key facts about the company. For example, the company's industry, what they do, and the names of its leaders, e.g. CEO, Presisident. This clearly also applies to knowing, if possible, the name of the person in charge of hiring for the position you are interested in.
Before going to an interview is the time to do extensive research. Being armed with an arsenal of information can give you an edge over your competition, as you will be able to answer questions about the employer should you be asked any at the interview. It is not unusual to be asked the question, "What do you know about us?" It will also enable you to ask intelligent questions when you are given the opportunity, as job candidates usually are toward the end of the interview. Just as researching clients gives companies the ability to individually target sales presentations, knowing your potential employer will help you target your presentation to them.
