Robert Walters has been named Best National Recruitment Agency at the 2016 NORA awards. The awards recognise businesses that offer an exceptional online resource for candidates, provide efficient design and ease of use, high volumes of available vacancies and a prominent place among their target market.

Steven Coxall, Marketing Director, commented:

“We’re delighted to receive this award, especially in the face of strong competition from Alexander Mann, Computer Futures, Hays and Reed.

“It’s a credit to the hard work our marketing team have put in over the last 12 months to overhaul and redesign our website to create a platform that is mobile responsive and accessible for all of our candidates.”      


The awards also take into account the use of extended social media channels to reach candidates. Robert Walters following on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn have all seen strong growth over the last year, with the volume of content shared via these channels becoming more frequent and effectively targeted.

Steven Coxall continues:

“Our social media presence is a key part of our marketing strategy, helping us to reach new candidates and reinforce our position as a thought leader in the recruitment industry.”

“Our success at the NORA awards comes on the back of being named one of the top three most socially engaged recruitment companies of 2016 by LinkedIn and reflects our commitment to using social media to build relationships with candidates.”

“We’re extremely pleased to have our efforts recognised in this space and we fully intend to continue embracing new online channels as the social media landscape evolves.”
