Recruitment Awards Part 1: How to Lose an Award


We love recruitment awards events (attending and potentially winning!) and want recruitment leaders to get real value from them – so we’re running a 3 part series on our blog!

We want to demonstrate the potential ROI of recruitment awards events and how to achieve it.

As part of my Recruitment Leaders podcast series on SoundCloud I spoke with Teri Etherington, UK Country Manager for Recruitment International.

Teri has over 14 years experience in and around the recruitment industry, working with well established and start-up recruiters and suppliers to provide valuable insight into the world of UK recruitment.

We had a great session around recruitment awards events – why you should enter, how you should enter, how to lose, and of course the ROI.

We talked about:

  • What is the key to winning a recruitment award?
  • Which awards should you enter?
  • What are the key, stupid mistakes that many recruitment teams make when they enter awards?
  • Why is it that so many “go getter” recruitment leaders fail to win awards? What an irony!
  • How to plan for an award entry – and ultimately win.

This is a great listen for recruitment leaders and marketers who are keen to grow their businesses and understand how important awards are in their strategy. Nominations for the Recruitment International Awards opens 1 August.

The awards are held in London on Thursday 20 October – don’t miss them!

And if you want advice on the how, why and ROI of entering awards, check out Recruitment International’s event in July (you may see a familiar face): Start Seeing ROI from Awards Events
