Noel Cafferkey, Managing Director & Owner
I grew up on Achill Island, and gained my passion for the hospitality sector at the age of 14 when I took on a summer job with McDowells Hotel. I have worked in the industry ever since whether it be in Operations, Sales, Digital or Recruitment.
After completing 4 years studying Hotel & Catering Management in AIT, I held a number of managerial roles.
Over a cup of coffee and a brief chat with Brian in 2005, I joined Action Recruitment as a consultant. During this time I completed my CIPD in DIT. I also completed a Diploma in Online Digital Marketing from the Digital Marketing Institute. In 2009, I joined Avvio as Business Development Manager for the UK and Ireland. After a stint of 3.5 years I then took on the role of Director of Business Development for Northern Europe with Market Metrix.
I was humbled and privileged to become the Managing Director & Owner of Action Recruitment in the summer of 2016, and then of Action HR Services in 2021. I am incredibly excited to be part of the next leg of this incredible journey with these great people in Action.
