Its not long until the In-House Recruitment Awards

It’s not long now until the In-House Recruitment Awards and the team at Solutions 4 Recruitment are getting excited.

As you know, we are sponsoring the Best Use of Mobile Award.

We see being shortlisted for this award a great accomplishment and wanted to know what it meant to the finalists:

We’ve gone through a complete transformation in the space of 12 months and are very proud of what we’ve achieved. We now feel that we have something to show with evidence of our success and hard work.” – Head of Resourcing and Employer Brand for House of Fraser.

“We were inspired to enter the In House Recruitment Awards for a couple of reasons. The first reason being, to recognise the outstanding achievements of our team over the past year, which showcases their continued passion and excellence in enabling the delivery of the best talent in to our business. Secondly, we also see the In House Recruitment Awards as a great opportunity to place ourselves at the centre of the industry” – Attraction and Marketing Manager at Capita Resourcing.

Standing out from the crowd is becoming increasingly difficult in today’s competitive market, so we asked our finalists what they thought gave them the edge over the other entrants:

“We believe we stood out as a unique team within the industry that isn’t afraid to challenge the status quo. We feel that we really do demonstrate a commitment to innovation and service excellence for the Capita business via reinvestment in such activity – be it attraction, technology or service delivery” – Attraction and Marketing Manager at Capita Resourcing.

“I hope that it was our unique employer brand and the attention we put into our careers site to really display our culture to prospective applicants. The innovation we’ve used and the technology we’ve selected to support us and our candidates through the resourcing process provide and easy, slick and user friendly journey” – Head of Resourcing and Employer Brand for House of Fraser.

Finally, we asked what their reaction was when they found out they had made the shortlist for the Best Use of Mobile:

“We are extremely honoured and excited to be nominated in not one, but two awards! You can’t underestimate the value of these awards in terms of recognition and motivation for all members of the team. Whether we are successful or not (and we hope we are), this nomination really feels like a validation of our successes and achievements and we’re very excited to find out whether we win on the night!” – Attraction and Marketing Manager at Capita Resourcing.

“We were absolutely delighted. We put in for 6 awards and are finalists in 5. My team have worked incredibly hard all year, so this is great recognition for us” – Head of Resourcing and Employer Brand for House of Fraser.

Good luck to all the finalists and we look forward to seeing you this Thursday!
