Today, Friday 10th September, marks the last day of nominations for this year’s National Online Recruitment Awards. Nominations closed at 5:00pm, and we received 776 on the last day alone. As ever, the response from the public has been outstanding.
Additionally this year, we have introduced a new method of nominating your favourite recruitment websites, where we asked for extra feedback, giving the reasons for your nominations. From this feedback, along with some basic demographic profiling, we hope to have a clearer picture of what candidates are looking for in a recruitment website.
We now begin the process of reducing the huge volume of nominations to the Finalists in each award category. To do this, we have an outstanding panel of experts, who will assess all nominated sites from a candidate’s perspective. For the first time, we will also be taking into account each sites offering to candidates on mobile platforms, such as smartphones etc, whether it be iPhone and Android Apps or a site tailored for use on a small screen.
This year we also have a very special award. To commemorate our 10th anniversary, we will present the Recruitment Website of the Decade Award to the site judged to have made the greatest contribution to the sector during the past ten years. Finalists for this award will be selected from the 201 websites who have been NORA Finalists and Winners in this period, as well as those shortlisted this year.
As scheduled, we will be announcing the Finalists for the tenth annual NORAs on Tuesday 28th September at 12 noon. All sites shortlisted will be entitled to use this logo immediately.
The Winners of the NORAs 2010 will be revealed at our awards event, in London, on Thursday 4th November. You can reserve your ticket here. https://www.eventelephant.com/recnet4nov
