White Horse Employment first past the post at Wiltshire Business Awards
The Trowbridge-based recruitment agency ended their 25th anniversary with a surprise they didn’t expect, when they were named as a winner.
Over 200 of Wiltshire’s leading businesses, business leaders and social enterprises entered the awards, divided into 8 categories. The small business category attracted the largest number of entrants, with over 24,000 small businesses eligible to compete and 29 finalists were shortlisted for this prestigious award with White Horse Employment coming in “first past the post” in this hotly contested category.
White Horse Employment - a commercial and professional recruitment specialist - provides temporary, contract and permanent recruitment solutions, for Wiltshire, Somerset and beyond, and after launching their new dedicated IT specialist recruitment division – ITR-UK – in January 2014 winning this accolade is a testament to the hard-working, highly experienced team they have assembled over the years.
Beverley Glover, managing director, White Horse Employment said, “We are absolutely thrilled. To achieve this against such strong opposition is a huge boost for everyone, and we are so proud to have won this award. It reflects the hard work, passion and enthusiasm the team put in – day in, day out. I could not ask for a more dedicated team or for a better result."
When the judges met with White Horse Employment for the “Small Business of the Year category” they were looking for a well-run business, with a strong business plan, the development of business through effective marketing, good provision of staff training and support, strong and sustained relationships with customers and suppliers and a commitment to community involvement.
