What a week for awards for Scout!! We are absolutely thrilled to announce that we have also just been nominated to win an award at the MADRA’s (Marketing And Digital Recruitment Awards). This is the third year we have entered and received finalist. This year we decided to enter the Best Candidate Experience category.
As some of you who have entered awards before know, the submission documents take hours to prepare and the judging is tough, but it has all been worth it!! Judges this year included Heads of Talent management from brands such as Weetabix and Manchester University.
Our submission detailed why we believe the experience our Candidates have with us is good in the first place (marketing training, listening, honesty, enjoyment and fun). We also surveyed a cross section of our recent Candidates and had some wonderful feedback from them. It also included some specific case studies from Candidates and Clients, and finally we challenged the judges to test us out for themselves and go for a current job to see how we treated them! 😉
The awards ceremony is on 30th November in London so we are crossing fingers and toes that we win! We will of course keep you posted on the outcome – little while to wait yet though!
