Best Public & Third Sector Recruitment Agency 2019

By Andrew Pirie

​We’re thrilled to announce that we have triumphed at the national Recruiter Awards, winning the top honours in the “Best Public and Third Sector Recruitment Agency” category.

The winners of the national Recruiter Awards were unveiled during a glittering gala dinner held in London last week (Thursday 09 May 2019). Compered by top comedian Tom Allen, the awards night recognised the hard work and innovation undertaken by the finest in the recruitment sector over the past twelve months.

We were absolutely thrilled to be named the award winners in the Best Public and Third Sector Recruitment Agency category. This is the fourth time that we’ve received this accolade, and it’s a testament to the hard work and efforts of all our staff. As specialist recruiters across the social care, healthcare, and criminal justice sectors, our candidates may have built strong working relationships with our dedicated consultants, but we know that our success is thanks to the hard work and dedication of all our employees across every department.

A message from James Rook...

Speaking after the awards night, our Chief Executive James Rook said:

"This is an incredible honour. To have won this award for the fourth time is unheard of. It shows our continual dedication to providing the best possible levels of service to our candidates and our clients. We always want to go that extra mile, whether that’s working alongside our clients to offer new, more efficient ways of working or investing in our candidates’ careers to help them achieve their goals. We promise that we’ll continue to work even harder over the next twelve months to offer an unparalleled service which really sets out the Sanctuary vision."

What the judges said...

As award winners, we know that you’ll want to know exactly what the judges said, and why they chose Sanctuary to receive this accolade.

The Public and Third Sector category is designed to showcase the added value that recruitment agencies can bring to the sectors. It’s about demonstrating innovation and helping companies change, improve or save lives by the employment of people in roles which help serve society.

We’ve always believed that we excel in these areas and we were delighted that the judging panel said:

"The winner had developed a proposition that clearly articulates what they stand for and what they then do. Sanctuary genuinely cares about the third sector and delivered an ambitious and innovative approach to dealing with some highly challenging and hard-to-fix situations."
