About us

Kennedy was the first private Nursing Agency to open in Northern Ireland in 1993. We remain at the forefront in providing innovative solutions to Healthcare Providers and Healthcare Workers throughout Northern Ireland. During this time, Kennedy has been a primary provider of temporary and permanent workers into the Northern Ireland Health Trusts and private nursing homes.

We’re not just a healthcare recruitment agency. We specialise in supporting businesses and organisations across Northern Ireland, in sourcing, developing and managing their people resources.  We take care to make sure that we carefully match the staff that we supply with your specific requirements.

We pride ourselves on finding the “Indispensability Factor” of the people we place into organisations or into your home, whether they are temporary or permanent.  We know that the healthcare staff that we place, stay with the organisations and the families we place them with, for longer than the industry norm*. Lower staff turnover means lower costs to you, but effective continuity of care for your patients, which is paramount.  

A Natural Extension of your Team
Many recruitment companies talk about partnering with their clients. What we mean by that is that we support you with the HR decisions you make throughout the growth of your organisation. This means that we proactively help you through our Strategic Staffing Assessment to ascertain in which areas you are strong and identify where any potential weaknesses lie.

We look at the human critical success factors within your business and provide you with practical impartial advice and solutions on how to ensure that you’re not overly dependent upon key members, as well as have the key skills to move forward with your plans. For this reason, many consider us a natural extension of their team.

Whether it is HR advice, strategic manpower planning, recruitment or temporary staff to support an urgent need that you require, Kennedy Healthcare will support you to ensure that your team delivers, when you need it most. 

Domiciliary Specialists
To an individual, where our staff are looking after you or a family member, the trust and relationship built over time is critical.  After all, we know that recruitment is more than choosing a CV.

When we talk about partnering with our domiciliary clients, we mean giving you all the help and support we can so that your family member gets the best possible care, from Carers that really do care; giving you peace of mind that they are as comfortable as they can be.

Why can you trust us?

As well as being one of the longest established employment agencies in Northern Ireland, Kennedy was the first employment agency to be awarded the ISO9001:2008 accreditation for our standards of service and delivery.
