Ipswich-based Sanctuary Personnel is celebrating after being presented with three of the biggest awards within the recruitment sector at The Recruiter Awards for Excellence.

The company beat off competition to take the titles of Best Temporary Agency, Best Public Sector Agency and Best Client Service.

In a year of such fundamental change to the sectors in which Sanctuary Personnel operates, the judges were impressed with the company’s ability to adapt and transform its services for the benefit of its clients. The judges went so far as to say that the end result of Sanctuary’s work has a “major impact on society” through the recruitment of dedicated and passionate public sector personnel.

The judges also commended Sanctuary on going above and beyond “in addressing the permanent social worker recruitment crisis” by supplying local authorities with highly suitable permanent social work practitioners who are ready to work in just four weeks; a process that on average takes local authorities 20 weeks.

James Rook, managing director of Sanctuary Personnel, said:“I cannot tell you just how much of an honour it is to win a Recruiter Award for Excellence, let alone three in one evening. I am so proud to be able to work with such innovative and resourceful people committed to delivering the highest level of support to our clients and candidates.

“It’s an exciting time for Sanctuary Personnel as we continue to expand our business at an unprecedented level, providing innovative resourcing solutions to hundreds of local authority, NHS and private health and social care companies across the UK.

“Of course, we realise that none of this would be possible without those we recruit who support people at their most vulnerable on a daily basis.”
