Aberdeenshire recruitment agency nets national award
November 24, 2022
Aberdeenshire recruitment agency, Grace May People, is celebrating this week having won ‘Best UK-wide IT and digital recruitment services’ in the 2022 Scottish Enterprise Awards. Offering an alternative approach to the mainstream recruitment process, the specialist IT firm provides bespoke technology and executive services across a variety of roles in the tech sector. Sponsored by digital business magazine, SME News, the Awards recognise individuals and firms across Scotland for their innovation, excellence and dedication to providing outstanding customer service.
Grace May People prioritises trust and clarity in their relationships with clients and candidates and boasts an impressive retention rate of 97% of all placements still in their placed role 12 months later.
“We’re delighted to have received this award,” says the company’s Founder and Director, Sasha Jaypalan. “It’s a huge testament to the hard work and commitment of our small team. Recommendations from clients and candidates play a critical role in the growth of our company and since setting up in 2015, we’ve become the trusted recruitment partner for a number of major companies and achieved a 5-star rating with over 70 Google reviews from candidates. This is fantastic recognition of our efforts.”
The recruitment industry was one of the hardest hit by the Covid-19 pandemic, during which many companies froze or significantly reduced their recruitment. Grace May’s customer-centric approach enabled them to continue business throughout this time, supporting individuals into new roles and helping businesses create successful teams. The company has recently invested in new technology and expanded its team to cater for a steadily growing client base in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Birmingham, London and more recently, in the gaming sector in Dundee.
Holly Blackwood, Awards Coordinator, said: “Scotland is full of successful and innovative enterprises, and these awards help to highlight the diverse range of small and medium-sized businesses that continually demonstrate innovation and excellence in their chosen sector. Our team rewards individuals and firms based on customer excellence in their chosen industry, the standard of their products and their commitment to service – and Grace May’s testimonials and their distinctive approach really shone out as exemplary. Congratulations to their team!”
