The Recruitment Marketing Awards took place on Thursday 26th October and we were delighted to come home with three great wins.
We picked up awards for:
- Best Recruitment Website below £50k.
- Best Art Direction.
- Campaign of the Year.
‘The Brewery’ on Chiswell Street did us all proud and we found out afterwards that no less a figure than Ozzy Osborn has graced the stage we were eagerly setting our footsteps on.
Winning for work that matters
We started the evening with eight nominations and the trio of award went to our clients Herts Care and the Home Office. Herts Care was a broad, integrated campaign to attract social care professionals. These are people with vital, society-boosting responsibility and we’re really proud to have been involved in recruiting them. The Home Office sources people who do important work in the fields of counter-terrorism, policing, fire, crime, drugs policy and immigration, to name a few. The website we designed and built made an enormous difference to their mission to keep the UK safe, fair and prosperous.
Coming back together
As well as being an opportunity to receive recognition for the work we do each year, these events are important to us because it bring clients and colleagues together. Hybrid working means we see significantly less of each other now and real world connection is not only fun but necessary for healthy relationships and the very best work.
Awards do rituals
A staple of these evenings is always guess the compère. A game where you try and name any comedian other than Ricky Gervais, Michael McIntyre or James Acaster in a bid to show how connected to the zeitgeist you are. It wasn’t any of the above, sadly, but there were many pulsating bellies in the audience as Felicity Ward took to the stage for a few gags and digs at the industry. She’s recently landed a gig as the Australian Office’s Michael Scott so yeh. She means business.
Felicty Ward did a sterling job or rallying the crowd and clapped and smiled the whole time.
The last of its type?
So a great and good natured night all-round. And lots of good work rewarded across the industry. But one thing was clear. This felt like one of the last of a certain type of awards nights. From what is becoming apparent in terms of market trends, there’s no doubt that in the coming years the variety and number of tech-led nominations (and categories) will change dramatically. Digital and social are king. It’s a super exciting space. One that is already changing the face of the creative and recruitment industries.
