Wiltshire-based specialist recruiter Kristy Moore is celebrating after being shortlisted for the Permanent Consultant of the Year category within the Institute of Recruitment Professionals (IRP) Awards.
Now in their ninth year, the prestigious awards present a unique platform upon which to celebrate the successes of the brightest recruitment professionals and companies within the UK.
Acorn, one of the UK's leading specialist recruitment agencies, is particularly thriving in the South West of England where the company operates from 12 branches, including Chippenham, of which two have recently opened in Bridgwater and Bournemouth following employer demand. The South West coverage adds to Acorn’s UK-wide network of 35 branches and onsite support locations.
Acorn South West divisional manager Noel Hoare said: “We are absolutely thrilled for Kristy. As well as being an outstanding Branch Manager, Kristy is also the most impressive Permanent Consultant I have worked with during my 20 years within the recruitment industry. The commitment she shows to the employers and job-seekers she works with is unbeatable; she is truly passionate about matching the right people to the best job opportunities and this shines through the service she provides every day.”
Kristy said: “It is an honour to have been nominated for such a prestigious award within the recruitment industry. The calibre of the nominees is always exceptionally high so it is great to have been recognised at this level and for something I care about so much.”
The Chippenham branch prides itself on providing a value-added recruitment service bespoke to local business needs in Chippenham and surrounding areas such as Calne, Malmesbury, Melksham, Corsham, Bath, Devizes, Trowbridge, Swindon, Warminster, Salisbury, Wootten Basset and Marlborough.
Situated in the town centre, the agency offers opportunities for people seeking permanent and temporary jobs in various industry sectors, including accounts & finance; catering & events; office support & administration; driving & logistics; public sector & Government; manufacturing & technology; industrial & warehousing.
Winning an IRP Award is the most impressive industry recognition an individual or company can achieve, and 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.
The winners will be announced on 6 December, at the Grand Park Plaza Westminster Bridge in London.
Kristy will attend the ceremony, alongside with Acorn’s Group Commercial Director Scott Liddle and the Group’s Marketing Team who has also been shortlisted this year, in the Business Leader of the Year and Best Support Team categories respectively.
