A recruitment consultancy picked up two awards at a ceremony in the Globe Theatre.

The Hendon branch of Berry Recruitment won the net profit per head award and Amanda Holmes was named on of the top consultants for placing candidates in temporary and contract positions.

The awards were organised by Berry Recruitment for its staff, of which there are more than 200 working in 36 branches across the country.

MD of the group, Chris Chown, said: “The Hendon team performed exceptionally well throughout the year.

“Amanda has been a consistent performer for a number of years and again in 2017 was highly successful.

“The group as a whole enjoyed another successful year and we have started 2018 very positively."

He added: “Unemployment remains very low nationally and operating in a competitive sector requires talented recruitment consultants to achieve success, and that is what we have across the group and in Hendon.”

Ms Holmes and colleague Iuliana Xhafa accepted the awards on the stage of the Elizabethan playhouse.
