Campion Willcocks is celebrating its recent success at the 2014 Institute of Recruitment Professionals (IRP) Awards. In the company’s first year of entering the awards, we are delighted to announce that we won Business Manager of the Year and the IMA Interim Consultant of the Year.
Business Manager of the Year went to the individual who best demonstrates the ability to consistently lead a successful team. For this award, the judges were searching for a natural born leader – someone who not only embodies professionalism and provides direction but can motivate a team to achieve success come rain or shine.
Donna Thomas, senior operations manager, was the winner. The judges praised “Donna’s transparent operating style which demonstrated a clear structure of how she has developed her team and taken ownership of their delivery. This ensured that she was driving the business not just delivering a business structure.”
The award for IMA Interim Consultant of the Year was open to providers who deliver high-quality interim management services, and work for an organisation that is either a member of the IMA or meets the high professional standards set by the organisation. Here, the judges were looking for an individual who consistently stands out from his or her peers by providing a first-class service to clients and interim managers. The winner had to show how their revenue performance exceeds that of their peers, or industry norms.
Dan Whitley, senior client director, was the winner. The judges commented: “Dan goes the extra mile to understand his client’s needs and has produced very impressive solutions and results. You really feel he is more than a consultant; he is a respected business partner.”
In their sixth year, the awards are part of the Recruitment & Employment Confederation’s (REC) Institute of Recruitment Professionals and are designed to celebrate excellence, best practice and inspirational work carried out across the recruitment industry.
Richard Clifford, managing director at Campion Willcocks, said: “I am incredibly proud that Dan and Donna have been recognised as industry leaders within their respective fields and congratulate them both on their fantastic achievements.”
