Hat-trick of awards for high-flying Office Angels
Ashford’s angels are on a high after winning big at their company’s annual awards ceremony.
Office Angels, a recruitment firm based in Park Mall, was named top performing branch for a record third year in a row at the ceremony, held in Hammersmith.
In addition, consultant Lindsay Bonner retained her crown as number one Temps Consultant in the UK.
As a reward, the team have won a trip to Miami.
Manager Helana Barnes said: “Ashford has always had a great variety of businesses in the town but recruiters understood that their business is based on the people they have work for them.
“I am testament to that here in Ashford myself, your team are the most important people.
“Candidates requirements are changing, recruiters want to know how as a company they can engage them, and we talk to our clients not just about recruitment but retaining their team.”
The Ashford branch celebrated its 10th anniversary last year, and continues to set company records in office recruitment.
Lindsay Bonner who has been with the company for eight years added: “I have the biggest temp desk in the country because our candidates trust we know a good employer and clients trust we know how to select the best candidates even for a short term contract.
“We match well and our local clients leave us to do this.
“Many of our temps who were taken on permanently have gone on to become our clients in local businesses so perhaps this is why 2015 saw a 26% increase in temp to permanent roles as they see value in this method of recruitment.”
