 VHR is delighted to announce that we have been named as Finalists in three categories of the Global Recruiter Awards UK 2021. 

 The Global Recruiter Awards is open to all businesses operating in the UK, regardless of office location or wider breadth of capability. The Global Recruiter Awards recognises the best of the best in the recruitment industry. The sixteen awards categories highlight business and individual excellence across all business sizes, leadership, sustainable and responsible business, economic growth, corporate leadership, and individual leadership.

The awards help promote talent, entrepreneurship and drive across the UK to a national and global audience.

VHR are shortlisted for the following three award categories:

  • Best In-House Training
  • Best Medium Recruitment Business
  • Best UK Overseas Operation

Best In-House Training

This category recognises in-house training services delivered by UK recruitment businesses. This training can be delivered both by internal experts and external resources.

VHR operates transparent career progression across functions and levels, encouraging staff to achieve their full potential. VHR’s internal managers create bespoke training programmes for our employees across departments and levels of experience. 

VHR creates talent where it does not exist through our unique Academy training programme.  

In January 2018, VHR launched the first Academy: a training programme for individuals with no recruitment experience, tailored to help each employee build a successful recruitment career. 

Each Academy trains individuals in the recruitment process, relationship building, legislation, building a personal brand, and high standards of candidate care. Academy trainees receive group and 1-2-1 training, coaching, and mentoring from our two in-house Learning & Development Coaches and support from VHR’s Leadership team and former Apprentices.

 Best Medium Recruitment Business

This award recognises great customer service and candidate experience in a medium-sized recruitment business. Judges also look for an insight into the performance not only before the pandemic but how the businesses have adapted and worked in challenging circumstances due to COVID-19. 

Our recent successes include:

  • Working with businesses in over 56 countries.
  • VHR’s CEO Danny Brooks receiving an MBE for International Trade.
  • Raising over £25,500 for charity in two years.
  • Finding over 1,500 new jobs for permanent and contract candidates every year.


Through the past seventeen months, VHR’s team has been navigating our way through the COVID-19 situation as it progresses around the world trying to support everyone the best we can.  

 VHR have provided regular guidance and communication to our clients and contractors on:

  • Workplace Hygiene Best Practices
  • Protecting your health whilst working
  • Access to healthcare whilst abroad
  • Payment and wage calculations
  • Lockdown restrictions and what they mean for business and employees at every stage.
  •     The Engineer Locator Form (ELF) pairing up a variety of technical jobs with engineers stuck in over 56 countries.

 Best UK Overseas Operation

This award recognises an excellent overseas service. In an increasingly global market, this award recognises excellence in extending a strong recruitment service through corporate social responsibility and innovative approaches to connecting candidates and clients. 

VHR is a responsible workplace in the services we provide to our candidate communities. The International Labour Organisation estimates that 40.3 million people worldwide are currently working in modern slavery. VHR is a prominent ethical recruitment company, and our services are built on the international Dhaka Principles to protect candidates throughout the recruitment process and their work placements. By going the extra mile for every client and candidate, VHR is striving to raise the standards of global recruitment.

VHR is passionate about the industries where we operate and the people with whom we work. We are delighted to have been shortlisted for the Global Recruiter Awards and look forward to attending the Awards ceremony in October.
