s1 Recruitment Awards

s1 Recruitment Awards

11  April  2019 

The s1 Awards recognise excellence – in creativity, effectiveness, and business success – across the entire spectrum of recruitment, showcasing the talent and dedication that businesses have here in Scotland.

Now in it’s 8th year the s1 recruitment awards have become a staple in the Scottish recruitment scene and are highly anticipated every year. As well as showcasing talent from across the UK this event is supportive of the local talent in Scotland.

Firefish have been a great supporter of the s1 awards for many years. Our Chief Fish Wendy Mcdougall was selected to be on the judging panel. Wendy was delighted when picked to join the panel. Although it is hard work, the experience is so rewarding and Wendy looks forward to dedicating time to the event each year.

Firefish have also been a sponsor of the event and for the last two years have had the pleasure of hosting the champagne reception as well. As the event continues to grow, we look forward to attending and further supporting.

This year’s event was held on Thursday 11th April at The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Glasgow. Here is a list of the winners from the 2019 event:
