Oil and Gas – Recruitment feature – November 2016

The oil and gas industry has been well and truly put through its paces in recent years, but while some recruitment companies have scaled back their oil and gas operations or retreated from the market altogether, others have begun to generate revenue and profit once again. We invite you to share your opinion on the industry by taking part in our November 2016 Q&A feature. Contact Rebecca for more details.

Latest technology – Supplier feature – November 2016

In the November edition of Recruitment International we will be publishing a feature focussing on latest technology. From this month, only the first five submitted answers will be able to submit a free comment in the feature. After that, in order to get your comment in, why not advertise with us? Prices start at just £150 for a promotional company profile (which includes the company name, contact details, logo and a 100-word profile). Contact Alex for more details.

DATE TBC – Recruitment Industry Supplier Awards

This year, Recruitment International is celebrating ten years of recognising the best of the best in recruitment, but in 2017 they’re not the only ones we want to shout about. For the first time, we will also be recognising leading industry suppliers at our RI Recruitment Industry Supplier Awards.

The awards will be completely independent and a true detection of standards, as it will be the recruitment agencies themselves who are the judges; they will answer questions online and this will determine the winners. To find out more, contact Alex or Teri.
