Another Award For GCS
Another Award For GCS
GCS Recruitment Specialists Ltd won a regional National Association of Student Employment Services award as Student Employer of the Year. After being singled out as best-in-field by the University of Reading, GCS qualified for consideration at regional level by the NASES judging panel and was subsequently named Student Employer of the Year for the entire London and South East region.
“It’s fantastic to have been singled out as the top Student Employer by both our local institution and by those judging all employers within an entire region – especially since that particular region is home to the highest quantity of businesses in the UK” says GCS founder Chris Bartlett. “Being able to say that GCS is the London & South East Student Employer of the Year 2012 brings another level of credibility to our planned University tour of 2013 and will hopefully lead to an increased number of students attending our free seminar on the realities of recruitment.”
The tour of which Bartlett speaks is a direct follow-on to a tour undertaken earlier this year, stopping at a number of Universities in the South of England, including Kent, Surrey, Hertfordshire and several London-based institutes. An inspirational public speaker, Bartlett gives his time freely to helping the next generation of the UK workforce gain a better grasp of what working in recruitment entails and has lectured business students at the University of Reading since 2008. This attitude towards & lsquo;giving back’ is one of myriad reasons he was named Director of the Year 2011 by the London and South East branch of the Institute of Directors.
GCS Student Employee Vicki Dowthwaite speaks highly of both Chris and the company as a whole “Chris has been kind enough to spend a considerable amount of his time sharing his extensive experience this has been absolutely invaluable to both my studies and my work experience. He isn’t alone in having been helpful – everyone at GCS has been welcoming and I’ve been trusted with challenging, motivating tasks. I’ve learned so much in my time with GCS so far and the atmosphere there is phenomenal.”
