Jordan Rowson Business Development Manager at Camach Recruitment, which lifted the Employer of the Year award last year, said winning the award had underlined the team’s commitment and passion.

 “The Elevator Awards experience was incredible. The awards process allowed us to look in depth internally at our strengths and why we felt we were deserving of the title of Employer of the Year. 

“Part of what made us award winners is that as a team we are all really passionate about the business and what we deliver for clients and candidates. When it was announced we had won, there was an incredible amount of pride and elation!

He added: “I would thoroughly recommend entering the Elevator Awards in 2018 to any business that wants to celebrate their success.”
