Staffline Group Ireland, the Mallusk-based employment support and recruitment company, was selected as the Fast Growth Business of the Year at the annual UTV Business Eye Awards.
The award follows a phenomenal year of organic growth for Staffline Group companies in Ireland, with sales increasing by 250 per cent. After October’s strategic acquisition of Diamond Recruitment, total turnover for Staffline Group was a staggering 1,385 per cent higher than in 2014.
Staffline Group companies in Ireland include Staffline OnSite, a blue-collar staffing services agency, PeoplePlus NI, an employment support and government services provider, and now Diamond Recruitment, a recruitment agency for professional services.
“We are so thrilled that Staffline Group Ireland has been recognised for the hard work our teams in Staffline OnSite, PeoplePlus NI and Diamond Recruitment put in every day,” said Tina McKenzie, MD of Staffline Group Ireland.
“We are always working closely to meet local employers’ needs whilst supporting candidates into productive and meaningful work. This year in particular our recruitment businesses put over 6,000 people into work with clients across Ireland and our employment support business is currently working with over 10,000 people who are long-term unemployed, supporting them on their journey back into employment.”
Staffline Group Ireland - the third largest recruitment firm in Ireland - is now a £53m company operating out of 12 locations, including Newtownabbey, Belfast, Dublin, Ballymena, Londonderry and Portadown.
