Coleraine is set for a seasonal jobs boost as part of a forthcoming recruitment campaign by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.

Almost 230 posts in a range of roles across the local government authority will be filled during the drive.

Details were revealed as Grafton Recruitment was appointed, after a competitive tender, as the exclusive provider of temporary labour to the council.

Claire Dooher, regional director, commented: “Grafton are looking forward to working in partnership with Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council to deliver high quality recruitment solutions across the council area.

“As industry experts in public sector recruitment, we understand the sourcing nuances required to deliver high quality candidates to support seasonal requirements.

“This is such a beautiful and picturesque place and we are delighted to have the opportunity to enhance the visitor experience to this area, through the provision of flexible labour.”

Opportunities provided will also enhance workers’ career opportunities, according to Grafton, which is one of the largest recruitment companies in Ireland.

As part of the contract award, Grafton will soon be announcing the recruitment campaign for 226 seasonal staff across the all areas of the borough.

Carol Noble, branch manager who is leading the team, explained: “We have a number of exciting and interesting roles available which offer candidates unrivalled opportunities to work in their local area and gain invaluable experience and skills to assist with their career development.

“My team are highly experienced in all avenues of candidate sourcing and screening and are experts at matching the right person to the right opportunity. We take an immense pride in the high level of service we provide for both our clients and candidates and I look forward to working with the council in the future.”
