Roisin McNamara

Director @HERO

As recruitment agency director, I embarked on this career path fuelled by personal experience. Upon returning to Ireland from New Zealand in 1996, I encountered challenges in finding promising job opportunities. Leaving behind a thriving position in Auckland complete with a company car and car phone (yes…it was that long ago!), I, like many others, turned to recruitment agencies for assistance. However, the prevailing sentiment of unworthiness left me convinced that a better approach was needed to support individuals like myself in their job searches. It was then that the concept of HERO, formerly named CCP, was born.

What truly captivates me about working with people is our inherent uniqueness. We all possess distinct qualities, and I find great joy in collaborating with both individuals and organisations on groundbreaking talent acquisition initiatives. These projects aim to foster the perfect synergy and team dynamics that lead to extraordinary achievements. Unlike many other businesses, recruitment caters to two distinct sets of clients—the hiring companies and the job seekers. I derive immense fulfilment from bringing together our clients and candidates, forging enduring partnerships and collaborations.
Over the course of my 25-year tenure in recruitment, I feel I have accumulated a wealth of knowledge, yet I continue to learn something new every day. One crucial lesson that has resonated with me is the significance of authenticity—being true to ourselves instead of trying to conform to others' expectations. Additionally, I value the art of genuine listening, recognising that it is an ongoing journey of improvement. Above all, I hold firm in the belief that our people are our most valuable stakeholders.

As a proud member of both the CIPD and ERF, and holding a Degree in HR Management, I bring a wealth of expertise to our collaborative talent acquisition endeavours. We welcome the opportunity to work alongside you in “finding the best in people”.
