Stephen O’Donnell, founder & chairman of NORA, stated, "The judges felt Creativepool’s candidate management system is a remarkably efficient tool in the recruitment process when looking for creative talent. It’s also inspiring to see the progression of Creativepool after their win of Best Innovation in Online Recruitment alongside Linkedin in 2014 – so it is with pleasure that we were able to recognise them as the winner for this year’s Best Specialist Job Board.”
Michael Tomes, founder of Creativepool, said, “Receiving last year’s innovation award alongside the biggest recruitment site in the world was an incredible honour. For the second year, taking home the win of Best Specialist Job Board &hellip it’s another unbelievable privilege. Identifying the needs of the creative industry and creating a platform that integrates the profiles of both companies and individuals – and enabling both to promote themselves effectively – has been challenging and rewarding. To have that recognised at the NORAs is an honour that I will treasure for a long time.”
