Department of Justice and Equality / Civil Service
Prior to joining the Department of Justice and Equality, I completed a degree in Commerce, majoring in Economics, in UCC. Following this, I completed the graduate programme in Employment Law, Industrial Relations and Human Resources in Ibec.
In May 2018, I Joined the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing Policy Unit. During this time, I worked on introducing an Anti-Money Laundering compliance regime for the gambling sector, organised outreach to various business cohorts in relation to their obligations (motor dealers, jewellers, private members’ clubs and trust or company service providers), and represented Ireland in Paris at the Financial Action Task Force.
In April 2019, I moved to the Equality Division working on international human rights reporting (Compiling reports to the UN and other human rights bodies on Ireland’s policies) and the National LGBTI+ Inclusion Strategy (a cross-governmental approach to improve the lives of LGBTI+ people in Ireland).
In August 2019, under the Department’s Transformation Process, I started in the Criminal Justice Transparency team working on Parliamentary Questions, correspondence, briefings, speeches and events relating to criminal justice.
