THIS IS

OUR STORY

FROM THE

NINETIES TO THE NAUGHTIES

Throughout the ninties and into the early naughties the Sales and Marketing disciplines became more closely aligned in the commercial world and the focus of the firm was widened to the include sales and senior commercial recruitment disciplines.

The People Group continued to grow as it gained a very strong reputation for guiding career advice and providing solid recruitment solutions. The team continued to expand and the firm moved across the road to 4 Clanwilliam Square where there was more space to conduct business. Some senior strategic additions were made to strengthen the team and operation while also focusing on specific industry verticals.

Colm Buckley joined in 2003 having spent sixteen years working in the banking area at senior sales & marketing levels with Bank of Ireland and MBNA. Rory Brennan joined in 2004 from Mark Mitchell and Brian Sweeney came on board in 2008 from HRM.

Growth and success saw The People Group being acquired in 2006 and become part of the same stable of companies as Sigmar, Kenny Whelan and others under the Newcourt PLC banner. Unfortunately the property crash of 2008 changed the business environment dramatically but also provided an opportunity for a successful MBO of The People Group by Colm Buckley, Brian Sweeney and Siobhan Phelan in August of 2009.

WE NEVER GIVE UP

The People Group has had many successes over the years, hired some fantastic people who have greatly enhanced the business while developing their recruitment careers. The firm has survived two major recessions in Ireland and we’ve also made a few mistakes along the way. The world has been changed by technology and the panacea of all things ‘Digital’. We’ve invested heavily in these tools. However, the enduring theme of The People Group that continues to develop our people’s careers, place candidates in great jobs in companies they love, and provide solid solutions to our clients are the solid relationships with candidates and clients alike. The culture of the company is built on being Authentic, Genuine and Real. Recruitment processes and solutions with depth and substance.

Achievement

Loyalty, Commitment, Courage, Belief and Achievement are the traits of those who have enjoyed success working for the firm. Since 1989 the company has hired people with the right ‘Attitude and fit’ for a culture that has integrity and doing the right thing consistently, at its very core.

The People Group was best summed up by a candidate in passing as “A place to have an intelligent adult conversation about your career “.

Our offices are based in the Silicon Docks of Europe in the Grand Canal area. For the historians, the site we’re on was the overflow cart & dray horse park for Boland’s Mill back in the day.
