Applications for the 2018 APSCo Awards for Excellence, which this year are sponsored by NatWest and 6CATS International, are now open. The annual awards, which celebrate outstanding achievements in the professional recruitment sector, are free to enter and open to all APSCo members.
This year, financial bandings across the ‘Recruitment Company of the Year’ categories have been amended to enable small and medium sized businesses to compete alongside other firms with which they are more closely matched. To achieve this, the ‘Under £5m turnover’ and ‘£5m to £50m turnover’ categories have been replaced with three others: ‘Under £3m turnover’, ‘£3m to £10m turnover’ and ‘£11m – £50m turnover’. The ‘Over £50m turnover’ category remains unchanged.
The awards process is led by a panel of independent judges who are acknowledged experts in each category and among the wider recruitment profession. Awards will be presented to the winners at an invitation-only dinner on the 16th of October 2018.
Commenting on the awards, Ann Swain, APSCo Chief Executive said;
“APSCo is committed to identifying, promoting and celebrating excellence in our sector and our Awards for Excellence are widely recognised as the most prestigious accolade in professional recruitment. The annual event has become the premier showcase for innovation and best practice in our field and is a great opportunity for firms to attract publicity and build their brand across the sector and beyond.
“This year, we are encouraging all of our members to enter, not only to demonstrate their achievements but also their ongoing commitment to the professional standards that APSCo membership represents.”
