The Company Bureau Formations Community
As a small company that packs a big punch, Company Bureau adopt the same approach to our corporate responsibility. Our unique office in the Dublin 7 provide a launchpad to the bustling City Centre and plenty of opportunities to get involved with our local area. The team are regularly involved in charity drives for Christmas or different fundraisers throughout the year. Mental health and employee wellness is a key foundation of any successful business and everyone is encouraged to contribute and get involved in our regular events.
Just some of what we have been up to lately can be seen below.
This year’s Christmas Charity | Saoirse Women’s Refuge
The whole team are really excited about buying presents for the boys and girls at Saoirse Women’s Refuge. Each person got to draw an age out of a hat and then the present hunting began.

Employee Wellness Day
Fridays can be tough when everyone is excited for the weekend and people are rushing to get things finished up…at CBF we decided to take it down a level or two for employee wellness day recently with massages, healthy snacks everywhere and spot prizes for anyone who showed their healthy side.
“Great for the pocket and great for the head”
Straight out of my college course in Marketing, I joined the team and Company Bureau and found a great spot to get my teeth into working in the real world. The office is big and open plan with lots going on each day. It really made me come out of my shell and feel good about coming into work, challenged me to dive in with two feet socially. I wasn’t let down, I have made some lasting friendships to carry onwards in my career and the place was great for the pocket and great for the head, loved it!

The Office and The Environment
Company Bureau’s internal recycling policy allows the staff actively do their part to reduce waste and work toward the preservation of our environment. Dotted throughout the office we have separate recycling and GDPR compliant shredding bins. Our secure internal server allows the sharing of information without the use of excess printing. In addition, toner and hardware recycling is facilitated to ensure that nothing is wasted around the office.
Our unique converted church office space is an open plan multi-company hub that is conducive to free communication. A weekly fruit delivery is on hand to keep the team healthy along with the Bike to Work scheme and plenty of other health initiatives. Of course, to treat ourselves, people can partake of the staff breakfast every Friday or support Bernardos and their sweet tooth with the Sweets for Life campaign.
The Great Irish Bake | Temple Street Children’s Charity
Where there is wellness, we have to treat ourselves sometimes too and no better way to do so than a Bake Off all in aid of Temple Street Hospital. Bakers from all departments went head to head and staff brought in their Grandmother’s finest recipes all to be crowned the CBF Bake Off champion. A lot of debate as to who the winner was but a lot of tasty treats were had and plenty of money was raised for charity.

“A Fantastic Place to Work”
Company Bureau gave me my professional start in my career, they are amazing at seeking new talent within the market and giving people their “chance”, they provide a flexible work environment when it comes to family, they are supportive of progression both academically and professionally, a friendly working atmosphere is prevalent around the office and there is an open line of communication with company directors.
– Tanya Mac Dermott, former full-time employee in the Accounts Department.
Our 20th Anniversary Celebrations
Just last year, CBF turned the big 2 0 and we were delighted to welcome past employees, current ones and many of our long-term clients to celebrate along with us at the fantastic Morrison Hotel on Ormond Quay Lower in the City Centre. An amazing evening was had by everyone.
“This job really increased my confidence”
What makes Company Bureau stand out is that every single employee has a stake in the company’s success. Although I only worked there for 6 months, thanks to my wonderful colleagues I developed a variety of expertise and learnt how to do my job in a professional, effective and efficient manner. This job really increased my confidence in an easy going and friendly but yet professional environment. By moving between different industries, I was able to discover what I was truly passionate about and when I decided to change my career, everyone gave me their full support, which I will always be grateful for. Everyone I have met in Company Bureau has enriched my experience there and after 5 months working for another company I still feel like a part of that big family.” – Nina Weg Krsticevic, former Company Secretarial Administrator
