Upcoming Recruitment Awards

recruitment awards

Well I think we can all agree that winter is definitely on its way, given how dark it is getting up in the morning these days! But as well as Halloween, Bonfire Night and (dare we mention it) Christmas, it’s also coming up to awards season in the recruitment industry. Here’s a quick run down of some of the major awards coming up…

The NORAs – National Online Recruitment Awards

The NORAs have been celebrating excellence in the online world of recruiting for 14 years this year, and recently announced their Finalists. We’re thrilled that not one, but two of our sister sites, Aviation Jobsearch and Simply Sales Jobs, have been shortlisted in the Best Specialist Job Board category! The NORAs are all about the candidate’s experience, so the judging criteria includes elements such as the number of vacancies available, ease of use, and available facilities such as mobile apps or social media integration. The awards are judged by a panel of recruitment experts, and the winners will be announced at a ceremony held at Sway in Covent Garden on 12th November.  The ceremony is open to all to attend, and tickets are a bargain at just £25 each. Going? We’ll see you there!

The FIRM Awards

In only their second year, the FIRM awards are still a relatively new addition to the recruitment awards calendar. Hosted by the Forum for In-house Recruitment Managers at the Tower Hotel in London on 4th December, it’s a must for any in-house recruiter. There are sixteen categories of awards, including Recruitment Team of the Year, Innovation of the Year and Most Effective Use of Social Media, which gives you an idea of the diversity of skills celebrated by the awards. It’s also the only awards ceremony exclusively highlighting the skills and achievements of in-house recruiters. We’re attending this event for the first time this year and can’t wait, especially for the photo booth, which looks a great laugh!

The IRP Awards

Hosted by REC, the Institute of Recruitment Professionals awards are now in their 6th year. Recognising the achievements of individuals and recruitment companies, these awards honour all levels and disciplines, making them a more generalist ceremony than the previous two we have mentioned. With 10 categories for individual performance, a further 7 for companies and 2 Judges Choice awards it’s sure to be a busy night. The ceremony is on 5th December this year, at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel in London, and hosted by Reverend Richard Coles – who is not your average vicar!

Congratulations to everyone who has been shortlisted for these awards (and any other awards we’ve not mentioned!) and we wish you the best of luck. Time to dust off the dinner jackets!
