National Graduate Recruitment Awards 2017

The National Graduate Recruitment Awards are the largest early careers recruitment awards in Europe, organised by Target Jobs. In the lead up to this highly prestigious annual event, there were nearly 100,000 individual votes from undergraduates, apprentices and school-leavers. The night, hosted by Julian Clarey, welcomed over 1,500 guests and presented 30 fiercely competed for trophies at London's Grosvenor House.

Pearson College London were thrilled to sponsor the event. ​I​t provides an excellent opportunity to be represented alongside some key influencers in degree recruitment, and to celebrate the success of some of the largest graduate recruiters in the UK and Europe.

We saw our very own Chris Achiampong's name in lights at the annual awards dinner. Chis was shortlisted for the Apprentice of the Year award for his great work at IBM, as part of our Rotational Degree Apprenticeship Scheme. A number of Chris’ lecturers attended the event to cheer him on, as Pearson College London also sponsored the night, with Ben Hughes, Vice Principal at Pearson College, presenting the Law Firm recruiter of the year award to Allen & Overy.

Pearson College London were delighted to sponsor and present the Law Firm recruiter of the year award award to Allen & Overy in recognition of their excellent efforts in this regard over the last twelve months. The team were also privileged to watch on as some of Britain's leading companies received awards in what host Julian Clary described as the recruitment Oscars. A great evening and a fantastic celebration of recruitment excellence. Congratulations Target Jobs!
