Two leading Irish recruitment professionals have been ranked on a prestigious European listing for business leaders in the staffing arena.

CEO at Ireland’s National Recruitment Federation (NRF), Geraldine King, is one of just twenty women featured on this year's Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), European Business Leaders Top 100 List.

Recognised for her role in developing formal education and training supports within the Irish recruitment sector, Ms King has driven the growth and profile of the NRF over the past eight years.

President of the NRF Frank Farrelly, COO and co-founder of Sigmar Recruitment in Ireland, also makes the list, which is now in its sixth year.

The SIA list recognises the impact and influence that individuals have on the workforce solutions arena.

Barriers to women's participation, investment in education and labour market skills and zero hours contract are just some of the labour market issues that both Ms King and Mr Farrelly lobby Government on.

"Having two of the NRF executive included in this year’s industry roll of honour is very satisfying and reflects the challenges currently faced by the recruitment sector in Ireland, navigating the world of work through the rapid shifts in the marketplace of late," said Ms King.
