Firefish Software wins Technical Innovation honour at Onrec Awards
Firefish Software took home the award for & lsquo;Technical Innovation’ at the Onrec Awards which were held on the 19th March. The glittering event took place in the Grange St Paul’s Hotel in Central London. Firefish, based near Park Circus in Glasgow, were recognised for their innovative nature as they quickly become the software of choice for recruiters in the UK and beyond.
“I’m delighted that Firefish Software has been recognised for the technical innovation that it brings to the UK recruitment market. The recruitment industry is buzzing right now, and it’s so exciting that Firefish is not only part of this, but is being recognised as the best tool recruiters can have to stay ahead of the curve” says Wendy McDougall, Firefish CEO.
Wendy McDougall was there to collect the award in person. Firefish kicked off in 2010 when McDougall had her own recruitment agency and grew frustrated with the software on the market at the time. The existing software wasn’t allowing her consultants to do all they wanted and so Firefish was born. McDougall has since left her agency days behind her and has successfully spun Firefish Software out as a separate business. Firefish customers are reaping the benefits of & lsquo;swimming with the best’ “The workflow within Firefish is engineered around how a good recruiter would work&hellip it’s just so logical and so easy to follow” says Gareth Biggerstaff, MD of Be-IT Resourcing.
In summer 2014, Firefish secured around £500,000 worth of investment which has spurred their development and technical innovation allowing the company to provide its customers with product updates and new features, consistently. There is planned expansion into the international recruitment market but don’t expect the team at Firefish to forget their Scottish roots.
