We’re thrilled to announce that we have been shortlisted for two prestigious UK Recruiter Awards in the Best Candidate Care and UK Recruitment Agency of the Year (under 19 employees) categories.

Established in 2002, the Recruiter Awards gala is the UK’s largest event for the entire recruitment community recognising outstanding achievements by agencies and in-house recruiters.

Managing Director, Michael Parry said, “It’s always a great feeling to be shortlisted for awards, particularly national ones such as the Recruiter Awards where there were nearly 6,000 submissions.  To be shortlisted in the category of Best UK Agency (across all sectors), is massive accomplishment as it’s such a crowded and competitive space. And to be competing at the same level as some of the corporate recruitment giants in the 2nd category for Best Candidate Care, I feel, is something the entire team should be very proud of”

Michael continued, “GCS has gone from strength to strength in the past year, diversifying its client & candidates services to include Employer Branding, RPO and Training. Our biggest achievement was completing the GCS Pledge, where we helped those who had lost their jobs due to COVID-19 back into employment, completely free of charge.

I’m incredibly proud of everything we’ve achieved so far and win or lose on the night, we’ll be celebrating regardless – proud to represent not only the recruitment sector but the sectors in which we specialise in! The Recruiter Awards are a fantastic opportunity for us to toast all the hard work, commitment, and determination which everyone; employees, clients, candidates included has put in to get us where we are today.”


A glittering awards ceremony to announce and celebrate this year’s Recruiter Awards winners will take place on 29th September at JW Marriott Grosvenor House in London. Congratulations to all those involved at GCS Associates, and good luck to those shortlisted!
