Recruitment Marketing Awards winners

The winners of the 2017 Recruitment Marketing Awards were announced last night, at an awards evening at The Brewery.

The evening was hosted by comedian and quizzer Paul Sinha, who is not a waiter (as one guest discovered after trying to order some wine from him).  The night saw a total of 20 awards handed out, with Tonic Agency the big winner after scooping the Grand Prix for its work with Police Now – which also picked up the awards for Outdoor Campaign, Digital Solution and Video (below £10,000).

TMP Worldwide was a double winner, taking home the gongs for Copywriting (in print, online or mobile) and Experiential, both of which were for Virgin Money.

Other agency winners included Hodes, Blackbridge, Penna, Pink Squid, Chatter, Karmarama and Stafford Long & Partners.

Now in their 37th year, the awards celebrate the agencies and organisations which demonstrate the most impactful, creative and cost-effective recruitment marketing campaigns and talent management initiatives.
