During the unprecedented pandemic that has caused difficulties to individuals and businesses around the globe, VHR are delighted to receive some good news: we have been named winners in the Amazon Scale Up Awards.

Amazon Business Awards Programme

The prestigious Awards programme, led by global retail giant Amazon, highlights and recognises the UK’s most impactful, fast-growing and innovative companies.

VHR was named the 2020 winner in the category of Export Business of the Year.

The Export Business of the Year Award celebrates companies that have demonstrated significant and sustained international growth, along with a clear understanding of overseas markets. Finalists in this category demonstrate commercial success and investment in job creation to their core UK operations.

VHR’s CEO and Founder Danny Brooks launched VHR in 2003 to create an ethical recruitment company that worked in partnership with clients and benefited businesses, workforces and communities. VHR has since grown to 90 employees and since 2016 almost doubled our turnover from £18million to £36million.

  • Developed bespoke training programmes that create new skilled Aviation workforces in the UAE and the Czech Republic
  • Supported over 200 clients and thousands of candidates in 52 countries around the world.

As an SME in a market with more than 40,000 recruitment companies operating in the UK alone, VHR are honoured to have won against tough competition.

We are particularly delighted to have received the Amazon Award during an unprecedented time for industries, business leaders and employees globally. Throughout the effects of Covid-19 we have been proud of our staff who have maintained their commitment to excellent service and going the extra mile to help each and every client and candidate.
