The Recruiter Awards: Seven Is Shortlisted In Four Major Categories

We are absolutely chuffed to announce that we have been shortlisted in FOUR major categories at the UK’s most prestigious recruitment awards – the Recruiter Awards! We have been shortlisted for:

  1. Best Client Service
  2. Best Candidate Care
  3. Most Effective Back-Office Operation
  4. Small Recruitment Agency Of The Year

As you may know, last year we scooped the award for ‘Most Effective Back-Office Operation’ and we are hoping to add to our trophy cabinet this year in 3 other huge categories. ‘How on earth did you get shortlisted for FOUR!?’ we hear you scream. Well, it’s as simple as this…

Best Client Service

Our clients benefit from exclusive technology, allowing them to find, hire and pay staff faster than any other agency. Built to solve outdated and inconvenient recruitment processes, we invested an incredible amount of time and capital into building the perfect recruitment experience for our clients and candidates by combining cutting-edge technology and intimate customer service in perfect synergy.

By offering exclusive recruitment technology and a multitude of contact options, our clients benefit from a perfect balance of fast and convenient recruitment, with around-the-clock access to a recruitment expert, without the need to deal with robots or answer machines.

Seven’s immense investment into building exclusive candidate pools and ensuring maximum exposure for client roles is unmatched amongst small agencies. Our clients often compliment the agency on its speed of finding suitable candidates, as well the number of applications their jobs receive as a result of being on so many different platforms. No expense is spared when it comes to finding the right staff for our clients.

Most of Seven’s clients operate in candidate-poor industries, such as Social Care and Nursing, and these clients often need candidates within 24h. Despite talent shortages in these sectors, we have a UK-wide reputation as the trusted agency to provide talented, qualified and available staff when other agencies can’t. Why is that? Because we are willing to work longer hours, innovate and spend more on developing business for our clients compared to other agencies.

Best Candidate Care

Like our unmatched client services, our rec-tech caught the eyes of the judges by creating one of the best candidate experiences in the industry. An exclusive, 3-dimensional back-office suite of tech, built completely in-house, allows candidates to find the best available roles (Smart Search), become compliant in a matter of seconds (SafeGuard) and get paid on time, every time (PayTech).

Created as a solution to fight dated, inconvenient, paper-based compliance, we built SafeGuard; a platform run by compliance experts that allows candidates to submit important documents from their mobile, anywhere, at any time, with the ability to automatically track their application progress. The automation and simplicity mean we can place candidates faster than any other agency.

Smart Search, a bespoke marketing tool, is able to harvest all of the best available jobs in our sectors by using automated email and cloud-calling technology to provide a constant flow of exclusive roles for our candidates.

Lastly, PayTech is payroll, simplified. Candidates can submit all of their timesheets online, anywhere, on any device, and their payments are automatically processed to guarantee that they are paid on-time, every time.

Seven’s unparalleled knowledge of its sectors also received plaudits with our long and consistent history of placing hard-to-fill roles that most agencies choose to ignore. Seven has recently placed social care and nursing candidates across the British Isles, including remote areas of England, Scotland and Wales, as well as the Falkland Isles, Orkney and Guernsey.

Candidates benefit from blissful convenience with Seven. Jobs are automatically sent to them, the application process takes a matter of seconds, compliance and payroll is digital and processed at lightning speed. On top of that, whenever they need support from a consultant that knows them best, a familiar voice is always available to chat. Quite simply, candidates do not have to worry about anything other than doing their job while working with Seven.

Most Effective Back-Office Operation

You don’t have to look much further than our reviews across Google, Trust Pilot & Indeed to get an idea of what employers and jobseekers think of us and how they appreciate the dedication and convenience offered by our back-office.

Our specialist back-office teams work in perfect synergy to create an accessible, convenient and reliable recruitment operation for everyone involved. This means that jobseekers and employers can spend more time doing what they do best, instead of worrying about rates, payments and finding the right staff.

The capital and time we spend on each and every back-office staff member is second to none. From the 4-screen workstations and in-depth data analysis to amazing perks and staff benefits, Seven’s back-office staff are given everything they need and more to achieve maximum productivity and efficiency for its candidates and clients.

We were crowned the ‘Most Effective Back Office Operation’ in 2019 and since then its processes, technology and reputation have grown from strength to strength. Nobody in the industry has surpassed Seven’s ground-breaking commitment to offering the best back-office operation in recruitment, especially considering its exclusive technology and unparalleled customer service in every area of the business.

Small Recruitment Agency Of The Year

For a ‘small’ agency, Seven has achieved and continues to achieve incredible things. It is one of the most established staffing providers to UK social care, healthcare and criminal justice, as well as running dedicated offices for life sciences and animal health in the UK, USA & Australia. In the last 12 months, 3/3 apprentices achieved full-time positions, 9 promotions were awarded, marketing results sky-rocketed, Seven expanded into 2 new sectors (Medical & Education), 2 new amazing offices were opened and so much more.

Recently, we have invested an unbelievable level of time and capital into staff recognition by introducing The Top Tier; an employee bonus and career development scheme that is simply unrivalled in recruitment. As a result, the company is retaining top talent and staff motivation is at an all-time high; the best kind of accomplishment!

Seven Life Sciences (Colchester) and Seven Animal Health (Gold Coast) achieved such fantastic growth that they moved into stunning, larger offices. Both Directors were former employees at Seven’s HQ in Ipswich, showcasing the agency’s successful dedication to offering unparalleled staff development.

UK recruitment can often be scrutinised as an industry that is typical for churning staff. Not at Seven. Seven offer clear routes for progression in every role, as well as guaranteed, incredible incentives and bonuses throughout its careers. Recruitment is a vital profession for the UK economy, and Seven’s Consultants are proud to work in it. With stunning offices, amazing opportunities and progressive careers, we are flying the flag for recruitment by guaranteeing our staff have exciting, long and rewarding careers.
