Our new (and somewhat classier) venue for this year’s NORAs event has undergone a recent £1.7m upgrade ensuring that it is the perfect location for the NORAs.
Carisbrooke Hall, near Marble Arch, has a fantastic history, and could not be more ideal for our event, featuring an enormous screen, curved stage, and dramatic balcony. We will set the room with cabaret style tables for our VIP tickets, with regular ticketed attendees behind that.
Given the current process of recovery from the pandemic, this helps to ensure greater spacing, and a more comfortable environment. It will also mean you will be able to actually hear the awards being announced for a change!
As you might expect from the NORAs, the format will be remain informal, and the order of the day will be celebration and networking.
The NORAs event is a celebration of excellence in the UK online recruitment sector, and also involves fantastic networking opportunities. Everyone within the UK recruiting community is very welcome, as is anyone who has nominated their favourite websites for the NORAs. Our awards website is https://NORAuk.com
Nominations opened on Tuesday 3rd August at 9:00AM and closed on Monday 6th September at 5:00PM.
All registered and nominated sites were considered carefully by our Shortlisting Judging Panel, to arrive at the list of this year’s Finalists.
Our Winners will be revealed at our in-person online awards event, held on Wednesday 10th November.
Chair of the NORAs
