Kieran started the Hudson RPO in 2019 as a Junior Business Analyst in our Edinburgh office. Drawn in by the experiences of the recruiters he worked with every day, he joined the academy, making him one of the first graduates of the Hudson RPO Academy. From there Kieran’s career has been on a fast-track of development as he moved from business analysis, to becoming a researcher and supporting our clients, to joining the internal recruitment team and a recent promotion to one of our client accounts, all including travelling with us to Dubai, twice!

“I started at Hudson RPO as a Junior Business Analyst and progressed from there. None of this would have been possible without the support of our teams and in-house training, the training on Social Talent and mentoring and guidance from senior colleagues who helped me take each step in my stride.”

At Hudson RPO, professional growth is built into our company culture. Every member of our global team is encouraged to expand their skills, share their talents across our client solutions, industries and geographies and contribute innovative ideas to improve our business. This is underpinned by training programs and a commitment to learning and development and our long-term practice of promoting from within. This is also how we were able to support Kieran’s career aspirations when they shifted from business analysis to recruitment. His recommendation to be successful at Hudson RPO would be to always ask questions and keep learning:

“To get the most out of working for Hudson RPO I would recommend to always ask questions. It does not matter who you ask, your colleagues, your team, senior members in the business, in training sessions, everyone is happy to provide you with the advice you need and to support you in your development.”

Because the recruitment strategies, technologies, and tools we work with in our industry and at Hudson RPO, are in a constant state of evolution, we champion an always-learning mindset. Our employees expand their expertise through direct experience, secondments, mentoring relationships, and a suite of online and in-person training through Accelerate, our Learning & Performance program.


Internal promotions and recognition are important to us. For Kieran this meant travelling to Dubai, twice as part of our internally nominated Aspire Awards.

Keep your eyes peeled for our upcoming story with Paulina, who will share all there is to know about travelling the world while working for Hudson RPO. Still, promotions and seeing the world aside, the best part about working for Hudson RPO according to Kieran is its people:

“One of the best things about working for Hudson RPO is the social aspect, of the job and the company. Every day I am speaking to colleagues from all over the world and I often get together with my Edinburgh colleagues after work.”
