Miriam Murphy

Miriam joined Solas in August 2014 with over twenty-five years’ experience in a variety of sectors ranging from banking (AIB) to start-up (Circuit Broker – an electrical consultancy with her Husband, Des) to not-for- profit (Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation – an organisation devoted to peace building in Ireland and internationally). Over the years, Miriam gained experience in a wide variety of areas such as finance, sales/marketing, project management, resource, facilities and event management. She even managed a Visitors Centre complete with Café and Exhibition Area and appeared on the television and radio! Solas is her first venture into the recruitment industry and all of this experience is proving invaluable as she copes with the diversity of tasks she is presented with on a daily basis. “This is my dream job and I learn something new every day (and forget 5 others)”!! Miriam is married to Des (whom she met through Scouting a long time ago!) and has three children – Emma, Robert and Luke. She has no spare time!!
