Last night (30 May 2019), we held our annual awards night to recognise the outstanding achievements and unwavering dedication of the HRS team.
These were our 4th annual awards - the 2018 event was held on Lord Sugar's yacht (view photo), whereas last night's celebration took place at Savage Garden, a rooftop bar in London.
The evening began with a drinks reception, and this was followed by the awards themselves. Our Managing Director Ricky Martin hosted the event, while Lord Sugar presented the awards to the worthy winners.
Once all the awards had been handed out, we sat down to enjoy dinner and drinks, as well as the stunning view from Savage Garden's roof terrace.
Who Won What?
Newcomer of the Year: Alex Dobson (Recruitment Consultant)
Alex has a great personality, and he quickly established a mature attitude in his work with PIER. He is a clear advocate of the HRS values.
Consultants' Consultant of the Year: Georgia Walden (Senior Recruitment Consultant)
Georgia has really come into her own over the last 12 months. She's shown tenacity and determination not to give up. She is always extremely pleasant to work with and cannot do enough for others – even if it takes time away from her own work!
Supporter of the Year: Laura Fellowes (Marketing Assistant)
Laura is always approachable and willing to help and take on new challenges. Enthusiastic and energetic, she has grown tremendously in her new role as Marketing Assistant over the last 6 months.
Sales Success of the Year: Eve Hegarty (Recruitment Manager)
Eve changed 24 people's lives this year, supporting roles across 8 different UK locations.
Team of the Year: Chemistry
The members of the Chemistry team – Chris Sowden, Ben Wales and Ted McNulty – have achieved a transformational change this year, building a strong foundation of clients and enhancing the HRS brand.
Consultant of the Year: Georgia Walden (Senior Recruitment Consultant)
The biggest award of the night went to Georgia Walden – here's what management had to say about her performance over the past 12 months:
“It takes bravery and a willingness to evolve in your skills to change desks. Georgia has done this; she is a fantastic addition to the FL Group, and someone who I want to build a team around in the future.” – Andrew Davis, Recruitment Director
“Georgia has shown a real thirst for adventure across 2018/19, not afraid of the risks associated with stepping outside her comfort zone. She has proven that, no matter what level you are within the company, you can succeed if you want it enough. Well done Georgia, you are a shining example to your peers!” – Ricky Martin, Managing Director
This annual award ceremony is an amazing opportunity for Ricky, Lord Sugar and the rest of the company to acknowledge the wealth of talent we have here at HRS. Each year, the awards get more and more competitive (not to mention busier due to our expanding workforce!) and it's always a joy to look back on the achievements of the past year.
This year's event capped off a particularly fantastic period for Hyper Recruitment Solutions. We've won two industry awards within the last 12 months...
...and now we're looking to make it a hat trick! We are on the shortlist for Global Recruiter's 'Best Small Recruitment Business' award, and the ceremony will be taking place on 20 June 2019 at the Café de Paris in London. Wish us luck!
