Career Development at BNY Mellon
Whether based in our Cork, Dublin or Wexford offices, BNY Mellon provides a wide range of career development opportunities and global exposure. Patrick Dobbs, site lead for BNY Mellon’s office in Wexford, describes the breadth of roles across our Irish operations.
The wide range of business functions across our Irish operations in Cork, Dublin and Wexford provides employees with fantastic opportunities to grow professionally and develop their careers. There is a highly collaborative work culture and given the nature of our business this often means working closely with colleagues across the world. Certainly there is a strong sense of being an important part of the daily global operations of the company, something which is underscored by the number of senior executives at both the EMEA regional and global levels who are based in Ireland.
“We are proud to see our colleagues in Ireland being recognised globally for their contribution to the organisation’s success” says Paddy. “There is a real emphasis on collaboration, professional development and recognition, supported by investment in the tools to support success in these areas. I think this culture, along with global exposure and a flexible benefits package that includes things like an interactive wellbeing programme, is reflected in the significant proportion of employees who remain at BNY Mellon to develop their careers over 5-10 years and beyond”.
“Attracting the right talent to contribute to BNY Mellon’s ongoing success in Ireland is a clear focus” continues Paddy. “It is a really exciting time to be part of this company with a wide range of opportunities opening up across all our locations in Ireland. We are working closely with our Talent Acquisition team to execute our recruitment strategy, and increasingly seeking skills that many candidates might not automatically associate with our industry such as cloud computing and cyber security. We have data scientists being hired into newly created roles that focus on intersections of structured and unstructured data."
"There is lots of opportunity to develop professionally and work on progressive projects that have significant impact for our business, for our clients and for our industry - not just in Ireland but across the globe" notes Paddy. "It’s a very mutually supportive culture and in fact one of the most rewarding parts of my job is seeing people blossom into their roles with confidence and a real passion to make a positive impact, and then witnessing first-hand how they support their colleagues to do the same.”
Patrick (Paddy) Dobbs joined BNY Mellon in 2000 as a graduate fund accountant. He has progressed his career and is Group Manager and European Lead for Alternative Investment Services Hedge Fund Accounting.
