A BELFAST firm is set to recruit hundreds of people for the Republic's police and security service An Garda Síochána.

Staffline Recruitment Ireland has beaten rivals in a public procurement process to land the contract to provide end-to-end recruitment solutions across a number of staff grades.

It will play a pivotal role in helping the force recruit top talent across various disciplines including human resources, medical, finance, legal, engineering, and administration.

Staffline says the strategic partnership signifies a new chapter in its journey and highlights the company's commitment to delivering excellence in recruitment services to public sector organisations.

Chief executive Tina McKenzie said: "We're thrilled to have been chosen by An Garda Síochána as its trusted recruitment partner.

"The partnership underscores our dedication to providing the highest quality workforce solutions and will allow us to contribute to the important work that An Garda Síochána does in keeping people safe."

Staffline says it will leverage its expertise in talent acquisition, technology, and process optimisation to identify and onboard the best candidates, ensuring An Garda Síochána continues to have a highly skilled and diverse workforce.

As one of the foremost recruitment and public services companies in Britain and Ireland, Staffline has been at the forefront of the industry, driving success since its inception.

Ms McKenzie took the helm in 2013 and founded the Ireland division of Staffline, setting the stage for remarkable growth, achieving a £150 million turnover within five years.

In 2014, PeoplePlus NI emerged as a multi-million-pound revenue business, specialising in government outsourcing. The following year Diamond Recruitment Agency joined, solidifying the firm's presence in the industry. Then in 2017, Oak Recruitment Agency was seamlessly integrated into Staffline, further strengthening its capabilities.

In July 2018, Tina secured the largest acquisition of a recruitment business in Ireland, welcoming Grafton Recruitment into the Staffline Group portfolio.
