In the past, that meant a visit to a stylist and a new mantra to practice in front of the mirror. But now, instead of offering a simple makeover, a new breed of executive coaches are seeking out the real you, warts and all, to make that the centrepiece of your next career move. They refrain from extravagant claims, but they help to redefine your career and make you feel more fulfilled than ever before.

The grass is greener than ever in Europe’s ‘emerald isle’. The end of quotas on dairy output could unleash economic growth potential worth €1.3 bn and create 15,000 new jobs in the coming years. Furthermore, from the U.S. to China, demand for ‘green and sustainable’ Irish agri-products is rising. In response, Irish farmers and agri-processing companies are busy investing and innovating.

Combined with pressure to reduce its carbon footprint, these factors are driving Ireland’s global and cross-sector quest for senior talent: from general managers and supply chain directors with insider knowledge of global markets, to specialist knowledge in nutritionals, pre- and post- food production and related industries. Meanwhile, Irish FMCG companies, in the quest for cost-efficiency and a peerless customer experience, are seeking digitally-literate supply chain managers and commercially astute executives.
