Leading specialist recruiter Acorn is celebrating for the second year running after three colleagues were shortlisted at the prestigious Institute of Recruitment Professionals (IRP) Awards.
Staff from across the company have been recognised for their excellence, including Dan Thompson from the Barnstaple branch who is shortlisted for Newcomer of the Year after just one year in the recruitment industry, and Pavan Arora, who is based in the company’s head office in Newport and shortlisted for Business Manager of the Year.
Kirsty Moore, manager of Acorn’s Chippenham branch, won not just the title of Permanent Consultant of the Year at last year’s award ceremony but also took home the evenings’ top prize, Overall Recruiter of the Year. She has again been shortlisted for Permanent Consultant of the Year following another year of unrivalled success.
The IRP Awards celebrate recruitment excellence across the country and now, in their 10th year, they have become one of the industry’s most prestigious awards.
Matt Southall, Managing Director of Acorn, said: “The IRP Awards set a benchmark for people across the industry and we’re thrilled to have three members of our excellent team shortlisted again this year.
“Our staff constantly go above and beyond to ensure that our customers and clients have the best possible recruitment experience and while not everyone can be shortlisted, I’m extremely pleased to see Dan, Pavan and Kirsty receive much-deserved recognition this year.”
Kirsty said: “To be shortlisted for a second year is such an honour. Winning this award last year gave me and my team such a boost and I’d love to win it again for the second year in a row. However, I know just how many talented, dedicated recruiters are working in the industry so I’m very pleased to have been nominated.”
Winning an IRP Award is the most impressive industry recognition a recruitment professional or company can achieve. It is unique in raising awareness towards the positive role models whose exceptional work, candidate care and client relations set the bar for all recruitment professionals and businesses to aspire to.
This year’s awards will be held this Thursday 29th November at the Royal Lancaster in London.
