Hot Off The Press – Xpertise Recruitment talks award wins with Recruitment International
Xpertise were humbled in November 2017 to win the Best Recruitment Company to Work for in the UK up to £10m at the National Recruitment International Awards, beating off competition from 100+ competitors. These awards are voted for by “recruitment industry” business leaders past and present and are recognised as the most prestigious of all recruitment sector industry awards. Xpertise believe this is the first time ever that a recruitment firm based in the Midlands has won this award.
Founder and Managing Director at Xpertise Recruitment, Richard Harrison recently spoke to Recruitment International about what the latest award win means for the company, and how Xpertise Recruitment is no ordinary recruitment agency.
Richard explains “Honestly speaking, I was very emotional. It meant a great deal to me and came as a very pleasant surprise. To see that other experienced recruitment sector business leaders recognised what we were doing was very humbling.”
Richard continues to explain why he believes Xpertise Recruitment stands out from the crowd “We have invested a huge amount of time to build what we believe is an industry-leading training programme combined with very clear milestones for career development.” The company has also remained focused on its approach to technology, where it is firmly set on providing its consultants with the best recruitment technology. Outside of its recruitment work, in 2017, Xpertise also raised £6,000 for its charity of choice, Action for Children, through Byte Night, a national sleep-out event. He adds, “I believe the judges saw that we were very mature in our thinking and processes.”
