Lisa J Armstrong, Active Staff Director, said:

“It was really inspiring to meet so many other incredible businesses from across our region and it’s an absolute honour to have received this prestigious award. We believe that excellent customer service is our company’s greatest asset and it is great to see that the passion we have for our candidates and their employment has been recognised at a regional level.”
