Lauren Fahy

Senior Talent Manager +353 1 6618889
LinkedIn Profile

I’ve been part of the Alternatives team since 2010 and currently manage both contract and permanent senior marketing positions across all sectors. Key to my role is building relationships with our marketing tribe – super marketers looking for their next career challenge, and businesses seeking this talent for their growth. For me, it’s all about building personal relationships – getting to know our tribe’s key skill sets, but also what their career ambitions and personal interests are. It’s truly fascinating meeting and reconnecting with marketers – every day is different!

Some recent successful assignments that I have placed include Head of Marketing (Retail Banking), Consumer Insights Manager (FMCG), Internal Communications Manager (Utilities) and Retail Marketing Manager (Travel) amongst others.

I hold a Masters in Advertising from DIT and a BA in Politics & Writing from Loyola University in Baltimore, USA. After completing the Masters in 2007, I worked in the client service department of two ad agencies here in Dublin – Rothco and Bloom. Prior to moving to Dublin, I spent four years with a NYC media company planning broadcast campaigns and began my career on Capitol Hill as a legislative intern for Hillary Rodham Clinton.

What you say about Lauren

“Lauren helped me search for new career opportunities whilst I was searching for a new job. Lauren understood what type of career I was looking for and for me is a huge skill and understanding to have in the recruitment industry. Lauren was always in touch with me and never left me waiting. I would definitely recommend her to any client or candidate. 

I have the highest regard for Lauren Woelfel-Fahy and Alternatives in terms of looking after my real needs in the pursuit of developing my Marketing career. I wanted an agency and person that really understood my strengths and experiences. I can genuinely say that Alternatives are 100% solid and totally professional with great connections in the marketplace. I would highly recommend them

Alternatives were a fantastic agency to work with. They took both my personality and professional experience into account and placed me in an ideal position. Lauren was a pleasure to work with; Attentive, professional and always available to field queries.

Thank you so much for your help and support in finding a new position. Your personal care and attention sets Alternatives head and shoulders above any other agency (I really mean that).

I came across Lauren when looking for a new role after returning from Australia last year. I met with a lot of different recruiters but felt that none of them paid heed to my job aspirations. Lauren not only took on board my past employment history but factored in what I had briefed her about my ideal position and future ambitions. Second to that Lauren stayed in contact even when the market was slow just to touch base which added a personal factor that no other recruiter had shown.
