What Our Employees Say

"I started out with the Citco Group of Companies in 2007 as a Fund Accountant servicing a diverse client group. This, coupled with a robust learning program and support from my team, gave me the opportunity to upskill very quickly as I had exposure to the full end to end NAV process from the outset. I felt supported by the people around me, and it was clear I could go further at Citco.

Eight years on and I’m a Senior Account Manager developing strategic client relationships from our Dublin office. Some career highlights include secondments in New York and London to work with clients and support newly established teams. Both opportunities were exciting and empowering, and have contributed massively to my professional development.

Throughout my employment I have received support for continuous professional development and also had the opportunity to volunteer within the local community through a learning initiative scheme, which is incredibly rewarding.

I find the culture at Citco to be collaborative and supportive, with a focus on continuous improvement and development.  It also helps that the social scene is great, with frequent events, both organised and impromptu!"

Rosie Wilson, Senior Account Manager

"As EA to the Managing Director I see more of what Citco does for charities than most. While we donate to large charities, we always make an effort to support local ones helping families in need.

Whenever I visit these charities I'm always overwhelmed by the staff and their dedication to helping others. Knowing I’ve helped them in some way by volunteering my time, or organising a fundraiser, gives me a sense of achievement."

Michelle Kavanagh, Executive Assistant

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Citco (Charlotte, NC) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was preceded by a written skills assessment in order to test prior experience level and overall knowledge. The interview itself was somewhat informal, but heavily accounting based with a number of specific, technical questions. The interview was with two hiring managers.
