TARGETjobs National Graduate Recruitment Awards 2017 winners announced

 

The winners of the 2017 TARGETjobs National Graduate Recruitment Awards were announced last night, with Allen & Overy the evening’s big winner.

The international law firm celebrated multiple wins, including Graduate Employer of the Year, Most Popular Graduate Recruiter in Law, Best Innovation in Student Recruitment, and Best Work Experience Programme.

The awards ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, hosted by Julian Clary, was attended by over 1,000 guests from the world of early talent recruitment.

The TARGETjobs Awards are unique in that nearly all nominations are based on the votes of the UK student population. Sector award shortlists are determined by a national survey of 62,814 students and recent graduates from 120 different universities, conducted by trendence UK. Similarly, the Student Panel awards are shortlisted based on the deliberations of a student judging panel.   

Commenting on Allen & Overy’s successful entries, the student judging panel said: “Allen & Overy have a most thorough approach to a personalised candidate experience; this follows right through to their exit strategy and rehires of alumni. They were honest about challenges, career prospects but clear in commitment to development wherever the career may go.”
