The Lincoln Recruitment Irish Early Career Awards


Celebrating Ireland’s Early Career Achievers

Founded in 2015 The Lincoln Recruitment Irish Early Career Awards celebrate excellence and recognise the achievements of brilliant professionals who are in the first 7 years of their career in Ireland, and ultimately, reward innovation, best practice and outstanding achievement across a broad range of professional sectors.


We are excited to build on the success of previous years and would like to invite you to get involved by nominating a outstanding colleague for this year awards. The event will be held in the Royal Irish Academy of Music, on Tuesday the 24th of September, a stunning venue to celebrate exceptional professionals and organisations. MC for the evening will be award-winning Irish comedian Neil Delamere.


13 awards will be presented professionals and employers who have made the biggest impact on the Irish market over the past 12 months.
