The Grafton Specialist team is the dedicated division within the Grafton Employment Group, focused on providing Permanent, Contract & Temporary staffing solutions for the Accountancy & Finance, Engineering, HR, IT, Manufacturing & Production, Procurement & Sales & Marketing sectors across Northern Ireland.

As the Grafton Specialist team continues to grow, we are really excited to take the next step in our journey, with the appointment of a Recruitment Specialist within the HR division.

What's Important?

We are not a typical agency and we want to provide a personal, professional and consultative approach, focused upon building long term partnerships, rather than chasing quick wins.

That starts by having a genuine interest in our candidates and clients needs, presenting them with solutions that are best placed for them, ensuring that we will add value and ultimately that Grafton Specialist becomes the trusted partner for future requirements.

Our aspiration is to be the number one and how we get there is through our people; therefore, ethics, professionalism and charisma, are all strong traits we will want to see demonstrated in our new Recruitment Specialist.

The current team are fun, outgoing, high energy and whilst we are here to do a job, we also believe that coming to work should be enjoyable, as ultimately happy employees are productive employees!
