By November 28, 2016 Latest News

Held at the Hilton London Metropole Hotel on Wednesday 23rd November, the Marketing & Digital Recruitment Awards covered a range of categories recognising the hard work of specialist digital and marketing recruitment companies across the UK.

Chosen for “displaying sound evidence of an agency entirely in touch with its market”, the Marketing & Digital Recruitment Awards judges recognised Digital People’s commitment to creating a philosophy based around the candidate experience, and exceptional client service levels.

Of the win​,​ Digital People founder Ed Schofield said, “It means so much for us to win such a prestigious industry award in our first full year of business. We started with the belief that things should be better, and have battled against the status quo that has historically delivered a poor experience for candidates and hiring companies alike.

Wednesday’s win proves that true industry knowledge and a passion for ​​doing recruitment the way it should be done, is still of value in an industry that at times favours a high volume, low quality approach to recruitment. We are looking forward to helping more clients find the highest calibre people to drive their businesses forward, and effecting positive change in the recruitment industry.”
