Straight Six

I was really pleased to learn at the weekend that REED Scotland won S1 Jobs’ ‘Best Large Recruitment Consultancy’ award for the 6th year in a row.

This is what the judges had to say…

“One of the challenges facing a national or international recruitment business is ensuring that the values and vision of the business is fully understood and appreciated by all the people who work there. The winning entry in this category not only described this creed in detail but backed it up with testimonials and first class case studies that endorse the realisation of those values. Their commitment to the growth and development of their people is clearly “World Class” with extensive L&D facilities and other resources being made available to facilitate the delivery of industry recognised and formal accreditation. Importantly, their commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility is seeded deeply in their values and activities and this extends way beyond the front doors of their offices. Their entry also provided numerous client testimonials that spoke of their stunning commitment and investment in those relationships. Those testimonials also substantiated an effective and comprehensive delivery of a quality service to their candidates – despite the size of the business, it was clear that their front line consultants really understand the needs of their candidates and care about the outcomes.”

Many congratulations to Drew McManus, Brian Cargill, Dougie Turkington, Ali MacMillan and all of your colleagues in Scotland.

Enjoy this for now, because you know I’ll want seven…
