Morgan McKinley will be expanding our international presence into Canada in 2017. Though we are widely known as the go-to recruitment specialists in countries where we are already established, we felt it was important to share the five “W” questions that can help quickly summarise our business to those who may not be familiar with us.

Who - Morgan McKinley are an Irish global recruitment company that was founded nearly 30 years ago in Cork by our current CEO Pat Fitzgerald. Since then we have expanded our international reach spanning over 800 people in 9 countries across the UK, Ireland, EMEA, Asia and Australia. We have offices in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Japan, Singapore and the UK and are strategically placed at the heart of key financial centres, as well as regionally within specific countries, giving us thorough coverage of all the markets in which we operate. My name is Ian Kinsella and I am the Director of Technology Recruitment for our 10th country globally - Canada.

What - In Toronto we want to be as specialised as possible. We know that Toronto is similar to Dublin, however much bigger in terms of the increasing demand for tech talent with limited supply. We feel the opportunity to partner and add value within the Toronto tech community is exciting and promising. Initially we are going to be recruiting purely within software development and senior tech appointments. 

Where - We will be working within technology throughout all of Canada however our initial focus is going to be Toronto. Our office is located Downtown just a short walk from the financial district in the heart of Toronto’s Arts & Entertainment district just off Queen West.

Why - We analysed the economy, technology trends, business costs and access to talent. However we chose Canada first and foremost as we felt a strong connection to the Canadian people and culture. Ireland and Canada have always had strong links and Morgan McKinley already do business across the globe with several companies that were founded and have their HQ’s in Canada. For us the opportunity to be part of the Canadian technology sector was a no brainer, and something we are excited to be a part of.

When - We are here and and fully operational in Toronto. I am looking to build a high performing recruitment team here in Toronto and I am also looking to expand my network within the senior tech sector. Please reach out to me at
