Recruitment firm harnessing online services wins top award

“The recognition and praise for our recruitment website is fantastic” comments GCS Business Continuity Manager Grahame Winman. “We have put a great deal of time and resource into making sure that it is appealing and exciting to job seekers, whilst remaining highly informative about what a career with GCS entails. It accurately portrays the reality of our business an I am obviously delighted that the awards committee held our site in such high regard”.

The website offers case studies of active GCS staff – success stories that are certain to motivate the reader and turn sceptics into applicants. Also to be found on the site are sections clearly explaining the roles on offer, the company culture and GCS’ commitment to training and professional development. Indeed, it is a level of commitment that has unquestionably contributed to the company’s accreditation as an “Investor in People” and its 30th placing in the Sunday Times’ “100 best companies to work for”.

On hand for the awards were GCS London Permanent Manager Ross Bartram and Midlands Office Manager Richard Knights and (picture attached). “It was a tremendous feeling to hear GCS announced as the winner” says Bartram. “The last year has been a very difficult time for recruitment agencies” he continues “but our UK operations have been impressively resilient to the economic downturn – and our outstanding recruitment website has helped us ensure we have the best team available.” In spite of the frosty financial climate, GCS has continued to hire staff throughout 2009 and plans to further bolster its ranks with a recruitment drive across the London, Birmingham and Reading offices in early 2010.
