Sector Matters

Sector Matters is Northern Ireland's first social enterprise providing quality business services to the voluntary and community sector and to small businesses.

NICVA set up Sector Matters in response to a need identified in the voluntary and community sector for cost-effective Human Resource, Finance and related outsourced support services.

Human Resources support

In terms of HR support, Sector Matters can become your in-house HR support, on a retainer basis, or offer a range of services on a one off basis, including:

  • HR Policy / Staff Handbook reviews
  • Recruitment Management
  • Employee Relations
  • Salary Benchmarking

Financial services

Our financial services include:

  • Book keeping
  • Financial Management
  • Income and expenditure statements
  • Financial governance and advice

Other services

We also offer other support services including interim management, assistance with your funding applications, tender preparation and research services.

Following an initial assessment, which is free of charge, Sector Matters will agree a plan of action with you to meet the needs of your organisation.


If you need help or advice on any of these areas, email Sector Matters or call 028 9087 5015.
