Independent wins Recruiter Award!

Recruiter winner 2013

In partnership with client Kiddicare, Independent has won the award for Best Candidate Care at the Recruiter Awards 2013, beating 7 other companies to the top spot. The judges commented: "in an age of technology-led application processes, social media and other bland attraction messages, this entry demonstrated the importance of retaining the human element." "We're delighted to have been recognised at the Recruiter Awards 2013," commented Mandy Flatley, HR Director for Morrisons and Kiddicare. "Our priority has been to create an open, honest and caring candidate selection process with Independent, to help us achieve a ‘happy colleague, happy customer' environment. By treating our colleagues well, we believe they'll go on to treat our customers well too." The award comes just as the recruitment for Kiddicare's final store opening draws to a close, recognising what has been a measured, skilful and immensely successful project.
