We appreciate the important role we play in supporting your business and your customers, hence please be assured that we are taking this responsibility seriously and have contingency plans in place for every eventuality.

Other information regarding Sure Recruitment NI
- Internal Sure Recruitment offices
Each office has implemented very detailed ‘prevention of virus spread’ procedures internally, including monitoring colleagues coming back from overseas travel, or who have been in contact with an affected individual, in line with Government guidelines.
- Recruitment/ Interview Areas
We are still interviewing and recruiting staff; however we have now implemented even tighter processes on cleaning of these areas along with displaying posters and asking visitors to use the hand washing facilities that are on site.
If you do need to come into the office then please feel free to do so, however we will limit the areas of the offices that visitors can access and as you leave if you see us thoroughly cleaning the areas where you were sitting/touching then please do not take offence.
We thank you for your understanding and whilst we’re mostly just passing on the information that is available, if you do have any specific questions relating to this and Sure Recruitment NI then please let us know and we’ll endeavour to help.
