Established by UK Recruiter, the Recruitment Blog of the Year awards are now in their 9th year.

The awards celebrate a broad spectrum of recruitment blogs, whether written to engage candidates or to inspire fellow recruiters.

As sponsors of the ‘In-house Recruiter/HR Department blog’ award, we’re delighted to share that the Digital People blog has taken the 2017 crown in our category.

There were seven finalists in Digital People’s category this year, and we’d like to congratulate all of them for being shortlisted.

Digital People is the blog from Government Digital Services (GDS). It offers potential candidates a glimpse into life at GDS and shines a spotlight on career paths like data science. It also features Q&As with people in a range of aspirational roles in technology and digital across government.

We’d like to wish Digital People huge congratulations for winning this category at the Recruitment Blog of the Year awards. As a tool to inspire, educate and engage potential candidates, it’s an excellent example.

We were really proud to have sponsored this category, and would like to extend our congratulations to all the shortlisted blogs.

In other blogging news, we were very excited to be nominated ourselves for a Recruitment Blog of the Year award! The Hireserve blog was shortlisted in the ‘Recruitment Industry Supplier Blog’ category.

We didn’t take home the prize (hats off to Social Talent for winning!) but are really chuffed to have been nominated alongside our fellow finalists.
