The Grafton Employment Group was founded in 1982 and has grown into one of Ireland’s largest recruitment companies, with 70 offices in 16 countries.

The group, which recently moved into new premises at Belfast’s Boat Building, describes its Northern Irish operation as the backbone of its business, with sales growth of 22%. Despite group losses in 2008/2009 and 2009/2010, Grafton says that a full restructure of the company in 2010 will result in a return to profit in the financial year 2010/2011.

The group provides recruitment outsourcing, human resources and management consultancy services and operates in the private and public sectors.

Grafton brands are Grafton Recruitment, Spengler Fox, Grafton Technologies, Blueprint Appointments, Grafton ESP, Grafton Healthcare and Maryb.ie.
