Digital People shortlisted as ‘Best Newcomer’ Finalist – MARA’s 2016

By September 15, 2016 Latest News

Digital People has been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Best Newcomer’ category at the prestigious Marketing and Digital Recruitment Awards (The MARAs) 2016. The event, now in its sixth year and being held at London’s Hilton Metropole Hotel on 23rd November, brings together leading recruitment and digital talent specialists in the UK.

The announcement coincides with the launch of Digital People’s ground-breaking commercial offering, designed to place performance-based fees at the top of the recruitment industry agenda.

Digital People’s founder, a former digital practitioner of 20 years Ed Schofield said, “We are delighted at the news! Being recognised by industry peers as a leading newcomer is testament to Digital People’s new approach in a highly competitive market.

Having been on both sides of the hiring fence, as hiring managers and candidates, we’ve sometimes been left underwhelmed by a lack of specialist knowledge when it comes to recruitment in the digital industry. From mis-sold roles, to shortlists that missed the brief, this lack of understanding can result in a poor experience for candidates and hiring companies alike.

We launched Digital People because we believe that things should be better. Being shortlisted for these highly regarded industry awards demonstrates clearly that we are doing something radically different from the outset, and that it’s working.”
