BELFAST-based Keenan Recruitment has announced it is moving to new premises in the city centre as part of wider expansion plans for the firm.

The fast-growing recruitment and employment agency, founded by managing director Aideen Duggan in 2013, has established a foothold in the healthcare recruitment market.

The firm specialies in placing professionals, such as social workers, allied health professionals, solicitors, accountants, HR and clerical staff throughout the north's five Health Trusts.

The company is moving to the Glandore offices at Arthur House ahead of its plans to double its workforce in response to growing demand from the private sector.

Keenan has said it will hire four new members of staff in order to service the growing demand from clients to expand their offering across a number of sectors including HR, finance, insurance, administration, IT and private healthcare sectors.

The company recently rebranded from Keenan Healthcare to Keenan Recruitment in a bid to reflect the firm's new services. The agency predicts that the new range of services will naturally increase its turnover, reaching £4.5 million in revenues by the end of June 2021.

Managing director Aideen Duggan said the company had established itself as a market leader in the north's health recruitment sector over the past seven years.

“We are a client-led agency and ensure we take care to put the client's needs at the very centre of what we do,” she said.

“As our customers continue to ask more of us, the business has thrived and we've seen an increasing demand for more services.

“This feedback is testament to the work that is undertaken daily by the agency and celebrates the unique work ethic and inclusive culture we have throughout the company. The rebrand opens us up to new markets throughout Northern Ireland, and we can't wait to add knowledgeable new members to our Keenan team.”
