After finding out back in August that we'd been shortlisted, a team of Forward Rollers attended the Marketing and Digital Recruitment Awards 2018.
The MDRA’s are renowned within the recruitment industry for highlighting excellence within the marketing, advertising, creative and digital sectors and the glitzy ceremony was held in London’s Hilton Bankside Hotel.
We had a fantastic night, winning in four categories; Best Regional Agency, Best Client Service, Best Large Agency and Agency of the Year, with such amazing feedback from the judging panel!
Best Regional Agency
“Excellent regional immersion, strong candidate and client understanding, and an exceptional CSR strategy helped make this agency stand out. A substantial entry also highlighted increased internal staff count, a structured client acquisition strategy and significant revenue gains.”
Best Client Service
“Significant growth and repeat business underpin a clearly-defined client experience, with a focus on using innovative technologies to improve engagement, adding extra value with a dynamic salary survey tool, networking and start-up support.”
Best Large Agency
“The winner of this category most clearly highlighted a comprehensive and fully immersive market understanding, coupled with development across key business components. Candidate and client experience are fantastic; talent development and CSR exceptional; and financials and performance impressive.”
Agency of the Year
“The winner of this prestigious Agency of the Year category is a business that has displayed overall brilliance across the past twelve months. From candidate care to client development; improved processes, financials, placements and customer retentions; external branding, marketing, initiatives, investment in tech and people; CSR campaigns and giving back.”
Forward Role Director Brian Johnson commented; “2018 has been an incredible year and to win four awards for the different ways that we support our clients and candidates is amazing. I’m so proud of the team who go above and beyond every single day for the people we work with – they wholeheartedly deserved this recognition.
“Congratulations to all of the other finalists and winners – what a brilliant night!"
