Grosvenor House Hotel played host to over 1,000 recruitment professionals last night, as Recruiter magazine held it’s annual Awards for Excellence 2008, supported by Thomas International.
Dara O’ Briain, the Irish comedian and presenter of Mock the Week, gave the awards a comic’s touch with a rapturously met opening speech and award introductions.
The panel of judges included Steve Huxham, chairman of the Recruitment Society; Steven Kirkpatrick, managing director of Adecco Staffing UK and Ireland; Anthony Reeves, co-chairman of the Kellan Group and Nabila Sadiq, managing director of the Joslin Rowe temporaries.
Bob Wicks was the first winner who received the prestigious Gary Clark Individual Achievement Award. The accolade was given for outstanding contribution to the recruitment profession. Having established Select Education as a market leader, he has recently formed the Verb Group in January 2007. He also
lobbies at the highest level of government and supports the lifelong learning charity, Campaign for Learning.
LA International Computer Consultants won the Grand Prix Gold Award, which was decided using four groups of judges, who assessed a number of categories before presenting to the entire panel. The award was given after judges decided, in a blind vote, that LA International were the best in the
industry, Best Candidate Care was won by Science Recruitment Group. The award was given because the company puts candidates first, even hiring trainers with specific scientific qualifications to train staff.
Westaff won Best Client Care, who impressed judges by finding innovative and creative ways to manage to find the right candidates.
