Deirdre Finnerty


As a dedicated Recruitment Director at HERO, I have been fortunate to embark on an enriching journey within the recruitment industry. From my early days as a recruiter, I have grown both professionally and personally, forging a deep love for the work we do and the impact we have on individuals and organisations alike.

Throughout my career, I have had the pleasure of leading teams of recruiters, sharing my knowledge and experiences to help them thrive. Building lasting relationships with my colleagues has been immensely rewarding, and I take pride in seeing them excel in their roles. I am a firm believer in leading by example, always striving to be open, transparent, and straight-shooting in my approach. I believe in setting the bar high and constantly evolving to better.

One of the aspects I cherish most about working in recruitment is the incredible array of people I encounter. Every day presents an opportunity to meet new faces, learn their stories, and cultivate meaningful relationships. Witnessing someone successfully transition into a new career or find their dream job brings me immense satisfaction. It is this ability to make a positive impact on someone's life that fuels my passion for this industry.
Over my 16 years in recruitment, I have acquired invaluable insights into the art of bringing people and companies together. The power of listening cannot be overstated; understanding the needs and aspirations of both clients and candidates is crucial to achieving successful hires. I firmly believe in building relationships based on honesty, transparency, and trust. At HERO, we hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards, ensuring that continuous growth, learning, and development are at the core of our daily operations.

My communication skills, adept people management abilities, and solution-oriented mindset have been instrumental in my success in a talent acquisitions. I deeply value talent and respect the individuals I work with, knowing that they are the driving force behind transformative teams.
Choosing a career in recruitment was not a deliberate decision for me. In fact, it was a close friend and Recruitment Manager who encouraged me to leave the finance industry and explore this field. Looking back, I am grateful for her guidance as I have found my true calling in recruitment. The dynamic nature of this industry, the meaningful connections, and the opportunity to create positive change continue to inspire me every day.

I am excited about the possibility of collaborating with you, leveraging my expertise to contribute to your organisation's success. Together, we can transform teams and make a lasting impact through the power of great talent.
