Hanson Search wins big at the MARA Awards 2016

Hanson Search named Best International Consultancy & Best Candidate Experience at the MARA Awards 2016

On 23 November 2016, Hanson Search was named Best International Consultancy and Best Candidate Experience at the Marketing and Digital Recruitment Awards (MARAs) in London. The MARAs recognise recruitment firms that have displayed unparalleled excellence within the marketing, advertising, creative and digital sectors.

Over the last two years, we’ve been expanding into more marketing, advertising and digital roles, from our foundation in communications. In that short time, we’ve brought on some exceptional, top-ranking clients and built relationships with some of the best talent in those industries globally. We are honoured and could not be prouder to now receive the recognition of these awards.

The judges highlighted our ability to integrate our international offices as well as our expertise. “A solid entry convinced the judges that [Hanson Search] was successfully integrating international recruitment into legacy operations. Operating from multiple locations outside the UK, this organisation displayed evidence of increased efficiency and expertise.” Our candidate service, a top priority for our teams, was also highlighted: “In a tough category, the judges felt [Hanson Search] was most clearly able to demonstrate exceptional candidate service throughout the past 12 months. A robust and innovative entry highlighted genuine aftercare, a strong negotiation strategy and genuine D&I.”

These were our second and third MARA awards, following our first win in the Best Client Service category in 2015. As we continue our international expansion and work across the marketing and communications space, our focus will remain on creating the best experiences for our candidates and clients alike.
