Meet the Recruitment Expert 2020: Owen Twomey

As part of our monthly activities, we would like to offer you the chance to meet some of our most valued recruitment experts. This month we would like to introduce you to Owen Twomey, a valued member of our team.



I started in May 2019 as a Senior Recruitment Expert Consultant. With five years of recruitment experience, I was looking forward to working with an exciting and progressive company that allowed me to work in a new market with fresh clients.

My favourite part about the job is placing candidates in new roles. There’s also a real sense of satisfaction when you take a client brief and find the perfect candidate.

I knew immediately after my initial conversation with Denis and Ian that I wanted to work with Euro Executive Recruitment. There is a huge focus on employee welfare and team morale which ensures that there is a great atmosphere in the office.

I feel I bring value to the company as I have a vast amount of recruitment experience from an extremely high paced environment where clients need to fill positions immediately. I pride myself on getting the right profiles across to my clients faster than anybody else.

I started in recruitment immediately after finishing a Masters in Business from UCC. I worked as an IT Recruitment Consultant for almost 5 years, primarily working on contract positions for ERP systems such as SAP and Oracle. During this time, I worked with some of the largest pharmaceutical, oil & gas, and food companies in the world.

My current role within Euro Executive is as Senior Recruitment Expert Consultant. I work within a number of areas including the IT, Engineering and Commercial sectors. The great thing about my position is that I am not confined to one space.



I like to keep fit, and I have run in a number of marathons over the last few years including the Cork City Marathon and Run Killarney. I am also an avid Liverpool supporter.


I have a BA in Arts as well as an MSc in Food Business from UCC.


My ambition going forward would be to establish and grow as many new clients as possible as well as maintaining the strong relationships I have with existing clients. Having primarily worked with companies outside of Ireland prior to starting with Euro Executive, I feel I need to establish myself further within Ireland and grow my network further.

Favourite Motivational Quote

“Two little mice fell in a bucket of cream. The first mouse quickly gave up and drowned. The second mouse, wouldn’t quit.
He struggled so hard that eventually he churned that cream into butter and crawled out.
Gentlemen, as of this moment, I am that second mouse.”
