Continuing to build on past success

There are lots of great employers in Northern Ireland. At Abacus, we are fortunate to work with a number who are truly pioneering and class-leading. Businesses that show the way in terms of inclusive leadership, effective learning and development, employee well-being, community engagement, positive working environment, benefits and reward. IQ-EQ is one of the truly great employers.

Since 2013 IQ-EQ has operated from its base in Belfast City Centre. Steady growth in operations year on year has meant that the Northern Ireland workforce, ten years later, is in excess of 150 professionals. IQ-EQ is part of a large global financial services entity that centres it’s work upon Investor Services. The company has more than $750Bn under management across 75 jurisdictions and employs over 4,500 people across the world.

Locally, the business is led by Niamh, Mark, Ruth and Craig. These are locally trained professionals who now hold senior positions overseeing global teams.

The pictures below show some recent IQ-EQ events; ‘Toddlers to work day’, a ‘Black Tie’ dinner and awards night, some of the team after a sponsored trek for a local charity, the virtual ‘Global coffee catch-up’, filming for new-starter inductions, and a team-building night out at Cookery School.

IQ-EQ are continuing to expand and grow in 2023. They are keen to speak with Accountants (ACA/ACCA/CIMA) – Qualified and about to qualify, about the range of positions that they have available in Client Accounting and Technical Accounting roles.

At IQ-EQ attitude, desire and team fit are most important. The leadership team is really keen to engage with interested parties, so much so, they are available for face-to-face or virtual coffee chats & drop-in visits to the Belfast office during May and June – just reach out to Marc from Abacus to arrange an appointment.
