Digital Gurus named Agency of the Year 2012

Posted in: DG NEWS by admin / No Comments »

 

Last night saw Digital Gurus take home Recruitment Agency of the Year at the annual Mara Awards!!!!

 

In our first ever entry to an awards show saw us nominated for 4 awards, Agency of the Year, Best Contract Agency, Best Large Agency and our very own Elliot Harrison was up for Consultant of the Year.

We were delighted to be highly commended for best contract and best large agency so it was an absolutely amazing feeling to take home the biggest award of the night to be crowned Agency of  the Year. There’s nothing better than to get some recognition for 4 years of hard work in an industry we are so passionate about.

Here’s what the MARA judges said when announcing our achievement -

“The winner of this category is always the agency that the judges feel has demonstrated the best overall recruitment strategy throughout the past 12 months.  This includes employee development, client and candidate engagement, branding, networking and, of course, tangible revenue production.  This year the judges voted for the agency that most consistently featured throughout the judging process as both a thought-leader and beacon for the contemporary recruitment model.”

Stay tuned for some pics once we get them!!! For now here’s one of the Directors Roy in his trademark (staring at a fly on the wall) pose and the lovely Sarah from the PM team holding the much coveted award.

 

If you are new to Digitalgurus and what we are about, here’s a brief snapshot of the DG Story so far…

In the last 4 years we’ve moved 5 offices, the team has grown from the 3 directors to 37 staff and counting, we cover both permanent and contract recruitment within the Creative, Technical, PM, IA/UX, Client Services, Media Performance, Ad Tech & Sales, Motion Graphics and Mobile. We have taken our team to Vegas and Paris (We have a country manor weekend retreat planned this Xmas), a brand new shiny UX focused website, we’ve sponsored The Bima Awards, Glug London, London Digital Week and The Drum Top 100 to name just a few and work with most of the top 100 digital agencies, as well as high profile brands and smaller boutiques and start-ups. With a quality team of consultants and resourcers with easily the best staff retention rate amongst our peers, we look forward to writing next chapter…
