Following Recruitment International’s merger with TALiNT Partners, its monthly magazine has rebranded as TALiNT International and the RI Awards have been relaunched as the TALiNT International Annual Recruitment Awards (the TIARAs).
“The legacy of the RI Awards lives on in its iconic trophy, which will remain the recruitment industry’s most coveted accolade,” said David Head, founder of Recruitment International and director of TALiNT Partners. “The TIARAs take these awards to another level of credibility and prestige. An expanded judging panel will include award-winning in-house recruiters and leading advisers. And to make it more exclusive, entries are only open to those profiled within our Top UK Recruiters Report.”
The TIARAs align with TALiNT International’s Top UK Recruiters Report by only recognising recruitment companies with a UK NFI of at last £5million. This represents only 6% of the UK’s c40,000 recruitment companies.
“As the recruitment industry evolves to support a range of workforce models, the TIARAs are a national campaign to crown the achievements of those leading its transformation,” said Alex Evans, Programme Director of TALiNT Partners. “Designed around our finalists, judges and sponsors, our campaign will show the vital role of the recruitment industry in keeping the lifeblood of talent flowing through UK plc.”
To extend this campaign, finalists will be announced in August and profiled alongside judge’s comments across TALiNT International’s monthly magazine and weekly newsletter until 15th October, when the winners will be announced at a black-tie gala dinner at The Brewery in London.
“The TIARAs really up the ante for finalists and sponsors,” said Andy Daniel, Commercial Director of TALiNT Partners. “Introducing employer perspectives to the judging panel will enhance the prestige of each award. Sponsors can now align with our campaign and host CEOs and senior executives from the UK’s leading recruitment companies.”
Access Group is headline sponsor of the inaugural TIARAs and award category sponsors include Four:Two, Volcanic, 6 Cats, Saffery Champness and Mishcon de Reya.
In 2019, the TIARAs will recognise excellence, innovation and growth in the recruitment sector across 14 categories. Details of these awards, and their sponsors, can be found at https://tiara.talint.co.uk.
