Additional finalists

A number of other businesses within the Group’s portfolio were shortlisted for other awards, and although pleased to be finalists in their competitive categories were unlucky to not win awards on the night. They still deserve a mention here though:


Recruitment Funding Solutions were finalists in the Recruitment Industry Supplier of the Year category.


Connex Education Partnership were also finalists in the Recruitment Agency of the Year - Medium (50-99 employees) category.


Bluestones Group itself was a finalist in the Most Effective Back Office Operation category.

Our businesses that were shortlisted and won awards have rightly deserved the limelight, and it’s a reflect of the dedication and effort that everyone across those businesses invest daily to deliver the exemplary services to their clients and candidates.

We’ll look forward to entering and winning more awards in the future – for these companies and others within our portfolio.

Bluestones Medical’s Jonathon Smith summed up the award win very nicely on LinkedIn as he headed back to the office the day after the awards…
