Meet the Recruitment Experts: Ian Murphy
As part of our monthly activities we would like to offer you the chance to meet some of our most valued recruitment experts. Let us introduce you to Ian Murphy, a valued member of the AA Euro Group team. He has wide ranging experience in the recruitment field and offers all of his clients a personalised service with outstanding attention to detail.
My name is Ian Murphy, and I have been working with AA Euro Executive Recruitment, since October 2015. I began working in the office at start up stage, and was enthusiastic about the opportunities it presented. The companies core beliefs shone through, attention to detail, as well as focusing on forging relationships were important to me.
I was enthusiastic from the day I went along to the first interview, and the chance to disrupt the construction recruitment market, establishing and building a presence were our early goals. We quickly developed an array of clients, both locally and internationally, and continue to see growth in these areas, five years on.
I got into recruitment off the back of an economics degree in UCC. I always had an interest in construction, as most of my family work in construction, so the opportunity to combine business acumen, and construction were a great fit for me.
I enjoy the role as it is fast paced, you get to speak to a variety of people daily, and it is constantly presenting challenges to solve.

I did a Single Honours Economics Degree in University College Cork. A great course, and transferable into the world of business. Presentation skills, constant interaction with peers, and ability to manage deadlines.
To continue to grow the business, the owners are ambitious, and always willing to consider ideas, and new sectors to develop.

Here is what some of Ian’s candidates have to say about him…
“A professional in all aspects of the recruitment business; from initial engagement to understanding the client’s strengths and requirements. Having the right knowledge of the client’s requirements has enabled Ian to place clients in exciting and challenging roles, myself included. Highly recommend Ian as a recruiter of choice if you’re looking to move on”. Paul, 2020
“I found Ian’s hands-on approach in terms of organising interviews with potential employers extremely professional. He has a large network of relationships built up in the construction industry and a very good knowledge of the construction industry’s current market conditions. His regular interaction, updates, and pre-interview preparation were excellent resulting in me securing a role with a leading construction company” Eoin, 2019
