Grafton Recruitment Ireland, one of Ireland’s leading recruitment agencies, announces that it will formally rebrand as Staffline Recruitment Ireland on 1 July, to leverage its parent company’s strong brand.
Commenting on news of the rebrand, Tina McKenzie, Managing Director of Staffline Recruitment Ireland, said:
“Today marks an exciting new chapter for our company. Despite the recent pressures of both Covid-19 and ongoing Brexit uncertainty, we remain in an excellent position to further strengthen our recruitment offering and provide exciting opportunities for those seeking employment in Ireland. Staffline Ireland will continue to offer dynamic recruitment solutions, with 10 offices that service the fintech, cyber security, pharma, science, agri-food, manufacturing and professional services industries.
“Building on our strong reputation within Ireland, we expect to benefit from further group wide synergies as we become increasingly aligned with the broader Staffline business.”
On the future prospects of the business Ms McKenzie added:
“The past few months has underlined the adage that change is the only constant in business. Staffline Ireland now has access to networks right across these islands which will ensure we not only continue to provide a first in class recruitment service, but that we are at the cutting edge of emerging global trends in respect of employment.
“The ongoing impact of Covid-19 has meant that the workplace will be crucial to shaping good practice, facilitating flexibility for as long as any disruption lasts and engendering a fast and decisive approach to decision making which takes full advantage of business possibilities.
“I believe both people and organisations will discover the benefits of a new way of working, which may challenge traditional business norms, but ultimately will improve the way we work and live. In the recruitment sector it may well mean pivoting towards new and emerging industries that harness an entirely new skill-set from employees. Our market leading people, resources and insights mean that despite the squeeze on the local and global economy we are armed with the best to weather the storm.”
Ms McKenzie also reflected on the reality that the office environment as we know it has changed forever:
“The unprecedented global health crisis has demonstrated just how important it is for workplaces to be agile, adaptable and flexible. We are very fortunate that as we continue to grow, the coming months will see us launch both our Galway and Dundalk offices.
“Within Staffline Ireland we, like many others, were compelled to find ways to reassure staff during the global pandemic and provide unprecedented levels of flexibility which took into consideration childcare needs, caring responsibilities and mental health pressures.
“We have also endeavoured to give every support possible to a large number of diverse employers across Ireland, advising on a number of issues including good health and safety practices in the workplace, utilising digital technology to the best advantage and encouraging those with increased output to react quickly and effectively to a surge in labour demands. We will continue to provide the necessary support to employers who need it.”
