The Jobsgopublic team had twice the reason to celebrate at this year’s PPMA Conference and Awards as we walked away with a brace of awards. Our winning streak stretched to four years in a row as we were presented with the awards for Best Frontline Recruitment Campaign and Best Value for Money Campaign.
The ceremony, held at the Grand Mercure Hotel in Bristol, recognises achievements in recruitment, people management and all other areas of HR. The accompanying conference also provides an opportunity for public sector professionals from across the country to come together to share ideas, expertise and experiences.
The event has always proved to be a happy occasion for us, taking away an award at the last three. This year was especially joyous as we doubled our annual haul, decked in top hats and tiaras as the dress code dictated.
Our Best Frontline Recruitment Campaign Award is in recognition for our ‘All Roads Point South West’ campaign that we ran for Bath and North East Somerset Council. Recruiting to their Highways and Traffic service, this campaign saw us tackle some challenging roles by highlighting exactly what makes BathNES an employer of choice for ambitious individuals in that field.
The Best Value for Money Campaign award was for our work with Cambridgeshire County Council’s social care services. This ongoing campaign set out to attract highly talented social care professionals to both their adults and children’s services. It is always a pleasure to work on campaigns with employers with big ambitions, especially when those ambitions are to provide the best possible services to those who need them most. Cambridgeshire do this by placing huge levels of trust in their social workers, empowering them to make their own decisions when it comes to the care they provide.
We always strive to provide the best possible work for the organisations that we work with, recognising that a successful campaign means that crucial services will have more talented people driving them forward. It is an honour to have our work recognised in this way.
Congratulations to all the other winners on the night, it was a great night as ever and it is always a thrilling experience to be in such prestigious and talented company.
Roll on next year!!
