Category: Company

Berry Recruitment Group’s annual conference and awards ceremony was held this year at the exclusive Centurion Golf Club in Hertfordshire. 

Consultants came from across England and Wales to attend the event at which trophies were presented. All brands within BRG were represented: Berry Recruitment, Wild Recruitment, First Recruitment Services and Wild Berry Associates.

Wild Recruitment scooped a number of awards at the ceremony. From the Portsmouth branch, Martha Thompson won ‘rookie of the year’ while Danielle McNally and Lynsey Hall were recognised for their long service.

Wild Recruitment Poole was presented with the ‘achievement of net profit budget’ award which was accepted by manager Kate Foley – who was also named ‘Wild manager of the year’. Amy Foley from the branch was also presented with two awards; an ‘outstanding achievement’ award and a ‘star performer’ award.

Managing director Chris Chown addressed the packed room at the golf club that is not far from BRG’s HQ in St Albans. He said there was room for optimism in the economic outlook for the year and signalled more group investment in technology.

Chris added: “The industry has been through tricky times but with hard work and innovation the group has developed ways of coming through it. The use of social media and an emphasis on training our consultants is working to improve the business.”

The evening included a superb three course dinner with live entertainment from the eight-piece band Uptown Funk.
