Recruitment International’s December Blog

As we approach the end of the year, we’d like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their involvement with RI in 2016.

We hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and New Year, and we look forward to working with you all in 2017.

We’re already looking forward to what promises to be another exciting year for Recruitment International.

16th February 2017 – 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 Teri.
