As the 2018 awards season finally draws to a close, The Oscars, Golden Globes and the Grammys are all well and truly behind us, leaving arguably the most important awards event of the year to be finalised last week…. The Recruiter Awards for Excellence 2018!

So, what are the Recruiter Awards?

Unquestionably the UK’s most prestigious recruitment event, The Recruiter Awards for Excellence focuses solely on recognising and rewarding the outstanding contributions and achievements by agencies and in-house recruiters across the full spectrum of the UK recruitment community.

The Recruiter Awards 2018 announced their shortlists for a variety of categories a couple of weeks back and Optimus Search was delighted to have been shortlisted in two of those categories - Best Client service and Best In-House Marketing Team.

Nigel Livingston: CEO remarked;

“Reflecting back on what has been a HUGE year for the company, we made some monumental changes to the business, both strategically and operationally, that should elevate our brand and see us go from strength-to-strength in the coming years.

Absolutely nothing delights us more than delivering exceptional results for our clients, so we are understandably proud to receive industry recognition for our commitment to service excellence by being nominated in the “Best Client Service Category’.  

2017 also saw us invest heavily in our back-office operations, including securing the services of a full-time Marketing & Communications Director who has ultimately driven this awards programme and has quite rightly got some individual recognition off the back of it. By being shortlisted for best In-House Marketing Team, it just goes to show how far the brand has come over the last 12 Months.    

Whilst, unfortunately, we didn’t pick up an award on the night, simply being part of the event for the very first time and making the shortlist alongside some of the most recognisable and influential UK staffing agencies is an achievement in itself has been an invaluable and ‘eye-opening experience”.

Attending the event itself was also a great way to reward our high-achievers, whilst highlighting to our staff that they are part of one of the most exciting, vibrant and dynamic industries”

We’ve certainly got the bug now and look forward to going back next year….and winning one!
