The Broadbean National Online Recruitment Awards are entirely dedicated to the continual improvement and evolution of the Candidate-Experience.
Throughout the past 16 years we have seen the focus of progressive employers, recruitment firms and job boards change to recognise that. The NORAs views the recruitment sector from the perspective of the jobseeker, and aims to shine a light on the very best examples of excellence in our industry.

As the definitive measure of the standards now expected by candidates, we expect our Finalists and Winners will continually be inspired to strive for better.

The 16th annual NORAs opened for nominations on 11th July, our Finalists were revealed on 10th October, and our awards event was held on Wednesday 16th November, In London. Please keep up to date with announcements and information via our twitter, our blog, as well as here on our official site.
