Meet Phoenix Director David Harrington, CTA
At Phoenix, we firmly believe that recruitment is a professional service - consultative, professional, value-add and solutions-focused.

Our search consultants are experts in professional services careers - many of whom are professionally qualified and have worked in global advisory firms. So, why choose Phoenix? Meet our Phoenix Family to find out more...

1. Tell us a bit about yourself - what's your background? 

After completing a degree in Law and Economics from the University of Limerick, I joined PwC as a tax trainee. After completing my CTA qualification in PwC, I joined Grant Thornton in Dublin. In 2017, I moved to Australia and began a career in recruitment. I returned to Ireland in 2018 and have since focused on recruiting tax professionals for both practice and industry positions.  

2. Why did you join the recruitment industry? 

Phoenix gives me the opportunity to help people decide the next step in their careers. I work a lot with newly-qualified tax advisors who are looking to branch out, which can be a daunting challenge. I really enjoy giving my professional advice on what their next move should be and consulting with them through the process to achieve the best outcome. 

3. What makes the #PhoenixFamily different? 

The fact that every one of us has a background in our chosen specialist area makes us very unique. This enables us to give greater insight to both clients and candidates, which you won't find with every agency. ​

4. What do you consider your biggest achievement to date? 

Passing the AITI tax exams and becoming a Chartered Tax Advisor.  

5. What's the best piece of advice you've been given that you share with our #PhoenixPeople

Results happen over time, not overnight. Work hard, stay patient and be consistent!
