Irish Chamber

2018 Finalist - Ciara Gaffney

Irish Australian Business Awards Peoples Choice 2018

I think I would be a worthy winner of an Irish Australian Business award because of the difference I have made and continue to make to people’s lives through my professional work, human rights work and sport. My achievements in each of these areas have been the direct result of surrounding myself with supportive, positive and hard-working role models who have helped me to develop my inner confidence. I will use this award as a platform to accelerate my human rights work, coaching and mentoring, and advocating for the Irish business community in Australia.

In my current role as a Senior Legal Counsel at First State Super, one of Australia’s largest superannuation funds, I help our members save for their futures. I serve members and put members at the centre of every legal advice I provide to the business.

David Midolla, Head of Legal and Compliance, Fidelity International
“I think that Ciara’s hard work, dedication and commitment make her an outstanding representative of the legal profession and the financial services industry. Ciara has a strong sense of community, justice and giving back which is evidenced by her extensive work in the pro bono area and is typical of Ciara’s Irish culture and heritage.”
