The AGR Student Recruitment Awards have been running for nearly 40 years, they recognise outstanding examples of excellence in developing campaigns and initiatives that attract high quality students. More than 20 companies were shortlisted this year.
Comedian Hal Cruttenden hosted the awards at a gala dinner as part of the AGR’s annual Student Recruitment Conference in Brighton.
The work we did in partnership with Unilever was the clear winner at the Awards. As well as scooping the top accolade – the Best of the Best Award given to the best entry from all the winners, we also won the Graduate Assessment and Selection Strategy Award.
The judges praised our technological and innovative approach. What we have achieved is not only game-changing for Unilever; it’s the most disruptive and pioneering selection process in the early careers space. Our work also won Recruitment Technology Innovation of the Year at the Recruiter Awards recently because it’s an industry first that means where Unilever has led others will have no choice but to follow.
Stephen Isherwood, Chief Executive at the AGR, said: “The awards marked the end of a fantastic second day of our annual conference. Congratulations to all of our winners. They’re always hugely competitive and it’s great to see such a wide range of sectors represented.”
