COREcruitment sponsors the 2017 People Awards

Continuing a strong and fruitful relationship, is pleased to announce that COREcruitment will be sponsoring the Leadership in Recruitment, Development and Retention category at the 2017 People Awards. Head of Marketing, Kathy Dyball said, “We are so happy to welcome back COREcruitment to our People Awards family. Their experience and integrity, especially in hospitality recruitment, brings a tangible cache to these very special awards, and we thank them for their continued support”

COREcruitment was established in 2005 with their London HQ. “We have grown extensively since then,” said Managing Director, Krishnan Doyle. “We now have a team of 42 consultants in the UK, South Africa, Dubai, Holland, Bangkok, North America and France. Our primary focus was originally on hospitality, but we now recruit for roles within Facilities Management, Head Office, Finance, Leisure & Fitness and Retail, Property and have a specialist team covering technology and marketing.

COREcruitment’s business ethos is underpinned by three guiding principles: Integrity, efficiency and transparency. “We pride ourselves on providing a bespoke and smooth recruitment process for both our clients and candidates,” Krishnan Doyle said. “All of our consultants focus on different sectors and all of them have previously worked in the sector they now recruit for – usually at management level. This means that they know what they’re talking about and can recognise the best candidates.”

The presentation of the Leadership in Recruitment, Retention and Development award is one of the highlights of the awards evening and was won last year by Durham University Catering Department. With an unmatched entry, Durham demonstrated innovation and perseverance by completely overhauling their recruitment process. They overcame opposition from internal quarters and restructured the written application shortlisting process for entry level vacancies by completely removing it in order to increase the amount of talent at interview stage. They also replaced the formal panel style interview with a ‘speed dating’ style interview process, during which up to 42 applicants moved around mini management panels, where positive behaviour is scored using standard questions and a simple work related tasks. In addition they fought back against stereotypes to reinvent their employer brand and introduced training placements at Michelin starred restaurants and food exploration trips in Asia.

Krishnan Doyle concluded, “Hospitality is a great sector where companies have a genuine interest and appreciation of their competitors. People Awards celebrate this sector and its achievements and in my opinion are vital.”
