Following the establishment of her international career, CEO Tina McKenzie returned home to her native Belfast in 2012 and set up the Ireland division of Staffiine in 2013. Despite only starting with two staff members operating from one office, Tina made a bold and ambitious target to expand her operation and hitatarget of £100 million turnover within five years.
In July 2018, Staffiine secured the largest acquisition of a recruitment business in Ireland, with Grafton joining Staffiine’s Group portfolio, which already included PeoplePlus and Diamond Recruitment.
Through organic and acquired growth, Tina achieved her original turnover exceeding her target of £100m by 145 per cent.
The company is now an established brand name with 12 offices, 18 onsite locations, a permanent employee workforce of 160 staff, and a contracted workforce of up to 8,000 people.
All are placed to serve jobseekers and businesses on a local basis, stretching from Derry, Coleraine, and Lisburn to Dublin, Galway, and Cork with their headquarters in Belfast.
Staffiine place their employees at the heart of the company, recognising that without a committed and effective workforce, any company in this sector would be able to achieve very little.
For Staffiine, their employees are the best asset the company has and are central to the company’s success.
