Who were the winners at the 20th anniversary Recruiter Awards?

After 20 years of promoting excellence in the recruitment sector, last night’s Recruiter Awards proved that the industry’s appetite to celebrate was stronger than ever.

The JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Park Lane hosted over 1,000 recruiters in a Covid-safe environment, where they were entertained by comedian Joel Dommett, who presented all the awards in his inimitable style.

Among the stand-out winners was temporary specialist recruitment agency Seven Resourcing, which finished the evening with four awards, and Signify Technology’s CEO Ryan Adams, who won Recruitment Industry Entrepreneur of the Year following his previous year’s award for Recruitment Leader of the Year.

Find out more about all the winners at the Recruiter Awards site, and see below for a run down of all the winners and highly commended firms and people.
