Only 48 Hours left to Nominate!

deadline We now have only 48 hours left to nominate your favourite recruitment websites for this year’s National Online Recruitment Awards.  In a year full of incident for the recruitment industry, we have still received a huge volume of nominations so far.   Dramatic developments throughout the year to the unemployment figures,  have clearly been the focal point of most people in the industry; over 210,000 jobs have been lost on the past 3 months alone. 

Further to that, the economic situation has accelerated the disappearance of recruitment advertising in newspapers.  However despite almost all jobs now being advertised online, via job boards, online newspapers, recruitment agencies and employers themselves, the volume of advertised vacancies is only half the level of 12 months ago.

Also, in the midst of all this turmoil, we have seen rapid developments in how candidates are able to find job ads, and how vacancies are being advertised, using the fast growing new media routes such as Twitter, Facebook, and Linkedin.  What is clear, is that everyone involved in recruitment, including job seekers, employers, and recruitment agencies, has had to dramatically change their established methods in a very short time.

Given all of this, the nominations for the 2009 NORAs should be very interesting indeed.  Every site nominated will be considered as a potential Finalist for the relevant award.  Shortlisted Finalists will be announced on 28th September, and our Awards Event will take place in London on Thursday 5th November.

If you haven’t done so already – Nominate Now!
