Clíodhna O’Carroll

I’m a CIMA qualified Management Accountant with an MSc. in Business Management. I started my career on the Jury’s Doyle Group Plc Graduate Program. I have found my preferred area to be SMEs as I like to be involved in other areas of managing a business, not just the finance department. I also have a keen interest in IT and automating systems, helping people to work smarter, not harder.

I’m a Mother of two great kids and wife to a surfer with two very active springer spaniels. I put enormous value on my work-life balance. Working at Dlight has really helped maintain my career at a high level, while also enjoying a more flexible approach to work. I enjoy swimming, running, tennis and reading a good book in my free time.
