APSCo Awards for Excellence 2018 shortlist revealed

The shortlist for the 2018 Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) Awards for Excellence - sponsored by NatWest and 6CATS International - has been unveiled. 


The shortlisted companies will be invited to attend a Q & A session with APSCo's panel of independent judges and winners are to be announced at an exclusive luncheon on 16th October 2018.


Ann Swain, APSCo chief executive, said,  “These awards have long been recognised as the most prestigious accolade in professional recruitment and are a unique indicator of standards throughout the sector. Once again, the judges were impressed by both the volume and quality of entries which they had the pleasure of reviewing this year. As is often the case, deciding on a shortlist was no mean feat, and we anticipate that choosing the winners following the panel interviews will be equally as challenging.


 “We at APSCo are immensely proud of the examples of excellence that our shortlisted companies shared, each one truly embodies the ethos of APSCo and I’d like to extend our congratulations to them all.”

 This year, financial bandings across the ‘Recruitment Company of the Year’ categories have been amended to enable small and medium sized businesses to compete alongside other firms with which they are more closely matched. To achieve this, the ‘Under £5m turnover’ and ‘£5m to £50m turnover’ categories have been replaced with three others: ‘Under £3m turnover’, ‘£3m to £10m turnover’ and ‘£11m - £50m turnover’. The ‘Over £50m turnover’ category remains unchanged.
