About Us

We provide employment and training services to help the long term unemployed into work

Welcome to PeoplePlus NI

We offer employability, training and recruitment services working with long term unemployed jobseekers to help them find sustainable employment. We deliver the Steps 2 Success programme on behalf of the Department for Employment and Learning supported by a network of experienced local partners.

We also work with local employers to help them fulfil their recruitment and staff training needs.

We are committed to reducing unemployment by helping participants on the Steps 2 Success programme find a job that meets their needs and aspirations, with the support of talented staff, innovative facilities and knowledgeable partners.

As a Staffline Group company we have an excellent track record in recruitment, training, logistics, e-retail, manufacturing and driving. Our heritage is rooted in creating jobs, exploring opportunities and contributing with new ideas in the welfare-to-work sector.

We understand the local labour market and we are dedicated to providing the right training and qualifications to reduce the existing skills gap.

Our People

We know that people are the most important part of any business. We have more than 70 specialised staff members in a variety of roles such as employment consultants, post-employment support mentors and trainers to support local jobseekers and employers.

Our team works with local businesses, helping to understand and identify recruitment needs and matching them with the right candidates. We are passionate about developing skills within the community and connecting jobseekers with local employers.

Whether you’ve been referred to us for employment, or a local employer interested in how we can help with your recruitment needs, we look forward to welcoming you to one of our centres soon.

What makes us so excited is that for the first time in Northern Ireland we have people coming in and getting pre-employment training that is linked directly and genuinely to real-life jobs with the help of our specialised staff.
