What being Marketing & Digital Recruitment Awards 2018 finalists means to us

Yesterday it was announced that Brand Recruitment have been shortlisted for an impressive 6 categories at the prestigious Marketing & Digital Recruitment Awards 2018 (MDRAs).

The upcoming awards ceremony will take place at the Hilton London Bankside Hotel in November this year. As always, the #MDRA18 is set to be an excellent evening and one which quite rightly celebrates the thriving marketing and digital recruitment industry we’re so proud to be a part of.


The six categories

Making the prospect of the awards night even more exciting is that fact that we’re not only nominated for one, but six Marketing and Digital Recruitment Awards! The categories we’re finalists for include: Best SME Recruitment Agency, Best Regional Recruitment Agency, Best Marketing & Comms Specialist, Best Client Service, Best Candidate Experience and the competitive Recruitment Consultant of the Year category where two of our most senior marketing recruiters, Ben Phillips and Sarah Rhodes, have been both been shortlisted! On top of the above categories, each recruitment agency shortlisted automatically gets entered in the sought-after Agency of the Year category.

What they mean to us

As a specialist recruitment agency that proudly focuses on the UK’s innovative and exciting Central and Eastern Region; the category of Best Regional Recruitment Agency (an award we’re honoured to have won 3 times before) is always one that is particularly close to our hearts as it really is the region we operate in, and the people and companies we work with in it, that are such a big part of our brand identity.

Equally, in 2016 we won the Best SME Recruitment Agency title, which again was an accolade that recognised us on a national level in front of our industry peers as key player in what we do. The Best Client Service and Best Candidate Experience categories are naturally excellent categories to be nominated for too as they both really recognise the hard work our consultant team as well as our back-office team put into making our customer service a top priority and shine through in all we do. With the Marketing & Comms Specialist category being a new one introduced this year, we’re up against some excellent agencies operating in our field.

We must also give a special mention to our two Recruitment Consultant of the Year finalists who have worked so hard over the past 12 months being successful consultants and top billers in their own rights, whilst also managing flourishing teams of their own. This year is the first time our Head of Consumer, Sarah, has been nominated for the award and the second consecutive year Head of Services, Ben, has been a finalist for this award. Well done and best of luck to both!

The whole team at Brand should be extremely proud of themselves for the hard work they have put in over the past year, and we very much look forward to letting our hair down at the awards ceremony later in the year!

Congratulations and good luck to all the other MDRA finalists, we will see you in November.
