The winners of the 2016 TFG Recruitment Awards were announced this week (on Wednesday 17th February). The awards recognised and rewarded innovative practice in the industry.

This year saw the introduction of categories, which target trade and supply chain finance, as well as supporting sectors to this industry such as accounting, finance, and natural resources. The TFG Recruitment Awards recognise exceptional candidates driving the recruitment sector and bringing key talent into the import and export industry, worth around $3tn USD per year.

Each category was judged by a panel of professional judges and 2016 was the biggest awards to date, choosing from over 100 companies across 6 recruitment sectors.

James Sinclair, Trade Finance Global editor said:

“Recruitment is changing, and organisations need to change with it. The digitalisation of recruitment processes, omnichannel focus and the production of engaging digital content for both potential candidates and firms looking to recruit are paramount – which was a key focus of all winners of the TFG Recruitment Awards for Excellence.

“We are proud to nominate a few winners across our categories this year. It’s been a pleasure for the judging panel reading independent reviews, talking to experts in the sector, and reviewing websites.

“It’s good to see that recruiters are striving for digital excellence. Trade finance is a growing industry and we really support recruiters advancing the access to talent.”
