Essex County Council’s Resourcing Team attended the TIARA Talent Acquisition Awards in October, where they were nominated for two awards: The Early Careers Pioneer and the TA Operational Achievement.
The TIARA awards recognise excellence, innovation, and growth in the recruitment sector as well as shining light on the best recruitment companies to work for. Recruitment teams who provide the best candidate and client service, achieve the highest growth and optimize technology available to transform the recruitment sector were all considered for this award, so it was a huge achievement for ECC’s Resourcing Team.
Johanna Smith, Entry to Work Team Manager, and Georgina Vickers, Specialist Resourcing Team Manager, attended the ceremony in London and were honoured to win the Early Careers Pioneer and be awarded highly commended for the TA Operational Achievement.
