'Best New Agency' Recruiter Awards 2019

The Recruiter Awards is the UK’s largest event for the entire recruitment community recognising outstanding achievements by agencies and in-house recruiters and is one of the most prestigious awards.  The criteria for 'Best New Agency' is based upon agencies which add outstanding value to their business, effectiveness, partnerships and relationships. The judges were looking for innovation, effectiveness, profitability and potential sustainability.

The reasons behind the judges awarding Signify Technology were;

  • The judges were impressed with Signify’s specific focus with the specialism of Scala from the outset of the agency, proving this was the best way to serve candidates and clients. To become more integrated with the Scala community, creating online and physical spaces for Scala engineers to connect and collaborate, often in association with clients.
  • To constantly improve the quality of service, the decision was taken to typically hire staff without recruitment experience so they could be trained, developed and nurtured as customer-centric consultants. With around 70% of Signify’s staff new to recruitment, the company aims to improve the stereotypical view of the recruitment industry.
  • Pay rises and promotions are linked to customer service scores to ensure this value is threaded throughout the entire organisation. At Signify promotions must come from the ways consultants support and help the community, whether that’s client, candidate or colleague.
  • In 2018 Signify began organising Functional Scala Workshops. Borne out of a desire to be part of the Scala community and knowing that Scala Engineers are hard to find, in short supply and there’s a serious skills shortage. It made sense to help engineers develop and to make sure the course was accessible to all, Signify provided financial aid and payment plans, as well as an option to be part of the workshops remotely by dialling in.

Signify Technology stood out for the breadth of its customer base and the fact that they had placed candidates across Europe.

Judges’ comments: “Signify Technology staff clearly have a genuine desire to do things differently and the recruitment landscape is all the richer for having them. Their personality shines through this excellent entry.”

Wish us luck for June!

'Business of the Year', 'Rookie of the Year' and 'Captain of the Year' The RDLC annual awards of excellence 2019
