Our success has been built on developing close client relationships and understanding their particular objectives. You will too.
“I joined Leahy O’Riordan three years ago as a part-qualified accountant. I’d been in industry, but felt I would learn more in a practice. It was the right decision to join this company. Everybody is really friendly and supportive, there’s such a diversity of knowledge and always someone to give you advice. I’m now a portfolio manager with a great range of clients. The work is interesting and I’ve learned so much more than I would have in industry. I would highly recommend it.”
Mark Mattimoe, ACA.

As you make your way through your Chartered exams you’ll also hone your practical accountancy skills, progressing towards your own portfolio of clients, even while you are part-qualified. Then when you’re a full Chartered member, you will have the opportunity to become a Portfolio Manager with us.
