Spencer Clarke Group shortlisted for two Global Recruiter Awards

Preston-based recruitment agency Spencer Clarke Group has announced that it has been shortlisted for two prestigious Global Recruiter Awards in the Best Employer Brand and Best Temporary Consultant categories. 

The news comes as the Spencer Clarke Group team is gearing up to celebrate its fifth birthday on August 1st after opening its doors in the summer of 2017. 

The Global Recruiter Awards is a celebratory event to highlight the strengths and achievements of the recruitment industry, and to recognise the companies and individuals who have demonstrated best practice, leading-edge thinking and more over the last 12 months.

It is managing consultant Richard Shorrock who is up for the coveted gong of Best Temporary Consultant after delivering on multiple projects within the challenging education and SEND market. 

Richard said: “The last four years have been extremely busy, eventful and challenging at times but ultimately it has been incredible and I’m truly honoured to have been shortlisted in this category.” 

Richard continued: “Just being shortlisted for this award is recognition to all the hard work and dedication which everyone has put in over the years and I look forward to the awards ceremony in November when we can celebrate properly!” 

Operating nationwide, Spencer Clarke Group specialises in a range of key disciplines within both the public and private sectors, offering permanent, temporary, contract and fixed-term career opportunities. 

Managing director Mike Shorrock said: "It’s always wonderful to be shortlisted for awards but these ones are extra special because not only has my brother Richard been shortlisted for an award but we are up for Best Employer Brand which is something which is incredibly important to me."

Mike continued: "I’m committed to developing our employees' careers to help them reach their personal and professional goals and I have implemented numerous initiatives to ensure that everyone is happy, healthy and growing within their role.” 

On discussing Spencer Clarke Group turning five, Mike said: "I am immensely proud of how far we have come, growing from just one member of staff to the current 29 we employ. As a business, we’ve had our ups and downs and it hasn’t all been plain sailing, but I can’t wait to see what the next five years holds for Spencer Clarke Group and our team!”

The Global Recruiter UK Awards 2022 will be held on 17 November 2022 at East Wintergarden, Canary Wharf.
