250 Trainees And Counting

February 2019

Cooney Carey take great pride in their trainees becoming well rounded qualified accountants. They provide a positive and supportive work environment where all our trainees can develop at their own pace.

Hear from two of their 2019 graduate recruits Niamh Heaney and Sophie Fitzgerald.


Since joining Cooney Carey, my knowledge and understanding has increased. This is due not only to the diversified range of tasks given to me for a wide variety of clients, but also due to the regular training sessions, to the mentorship and most importantly the strong supportive team environment from senior partners to fellow juniors.

The good working environment within Cooney Carey is a testament to the in-house belief in a positive work/life balance. For example, we have all heard stories of long working hours, this is an exception rather than a norm here in Cooney Carey, which has been brilliant for me as a Mum.  Niamh Heaney

My experience as a trainee with Cooney Carey has been brilliant. I have worked on various clients from a broad sector which has provided me with great knowledge and experience which will stand to me throughout my career. Working with Cooney Carey I have  continuous training both in-house and external CPD, this has given me the necessary skills to feel confident in my position.

Cooney Carey is a great place to work as it allows for a perfect work/life balance, during the summer we can work up hours to get a half day Friday allowing us to start the weekend early! It also has a great social side, by organising team building activities,  social events and being involved in numerous charitable events.  The team at Cooney Carey are the most helpful people I have come across and have made my experience memorable and valuable. Sophie Fitzgerald
