SA's top recruiters for 2017 announced by CareerJunction

As most South Africans made their way to the office on Thursday morning, 23 November, SA's top recruitment agencies came together to celebrate another year of recruitment excellence at the 2017 RecruiterAwards. This year marks the 14th annual RecruiterAwards, hosted by CareerJunction, one of SA's leading online job boards, which took place at Remo's Maximilliano in Sunninghill, Johannesburg.
Each year, accolades are awarded to those recruitment agencies, big and small, that stand out for the level of service they provided to jobseekers who used the CareerJunction website to find employment. What makes this event so unique is that award winners are determined by jobseekers, who get to cast their votes throughout the course of the year.

This year, almost 200 agencies received votes and nine agencies walked away with special accolades for their contributions during 2017.

Awards were presented across three categories (based on the number of jobs posted over the past 12-month period):
  • Platinum 100 (advertised an average of 71 to 100 job ads per month)
  • Platinum 70 (advertised an average of 26 to 70 job ads per month)
  • Platinum 25 (advertised up to 25 job ads per month)
And the winners are:

Paul Byrne, Managing Director of CareerJunction, presented the awards.

Congratulations to all the winners and runners-up as well as Janine Azevedo, from Sinakho Staffshop, who was awarded the title of Recruitment Consultant of the Year.

This year, two lucky voters were also given the opportunity to advance their careers with a free online course of their choice, to the value of R15,000, through GetSmarter! GetSmarter is an online education company based in Cape Town and London, collaborating with leading universities to offer premium online short courses to working professionals.
