Specialist marketing recruitment agency Brand Recruitment has recently been shortlisted for two categories in the annual MARA awards. Brand have been selected for both “Best Regional Agency” and “Best Medium Agency”, and are one of just six agencies in each category.
The national awards recognise achievements in the field of advertising and marketing recruitment and feature large and small agencies alike, from the specialist arms of global ‘high street’ recruiters to niche, regional agencies. Despite the gloomy economic conditions, the sector is one which has grown recently, with approximately 100,000 advertising and marketing jobs being created over the past four years.
“It is a great feeling to be nominated for these awards,” reflects Managing Consultant Ursula Colman, “We have naturally had a tough couple of years yet have managed to grow from a small company to a medium-sized agency, and it is refreshing to see that our professionalism and success is being acknowledged. We have purposefully controlled our growth in order to uphold our standards, which means that we continue to provide the best, most professional service to our clients and candidates.”
“Naturally we started as a small agency, yet we have always had a regional focus, becoming the first point of call for candidates looking for marketing jobs in the Eastern Region. Whilst Cambridgeshire has traditionally been our stronghold, we are now as well established in areas such as St. Albans, Milton Keynes, Luton, Northampton, Norwich and Leicester, so it seems we are poised to develop an even stronger presence across the region.”
The awards are to be held in London on the 23rd November 2011.
