)-- The founders online recruitment portal Hiring-Hub.com were commended for their commercial acumen and innovative approach by a judging panel at the prestigious 2011 DediPower UK Digital Innovation Awards.
The DediPower awards, in association with The Sunday Telegraph, Lloyds TSB and eSkills UK, aim to promote standout young British entrepreneurs and digital excellence, while championing businesses with the Internet at their core. Hiring-Hub.com was one of only three finalists invited to present to a judging panel at The Daily Telegraph’s offices in London on Tuesday, 22 March 2011.
Built to make recruitment more efficient, Hiring-Hub.com is an intermediary platform that provides UK businesses with a one-stop online shop for permanent recruitment. It caters for firms seeking to fill both technical and non-technical roles through its online marketplace, and its founders wish to emulate the success of similar web-based platforms like confused.com and moneysupermarket.com.
Impressed by the Hiring-Hub.com’s “innovative approach and strong commercial acumen,” Chris Miller, CEO of DediPower and chairman of the DediPower Digital Awards judging panel, said: "Using the power of the internet to accelerate the recruitment process is a clear opportunity not fully capitalised upon. With Hiring-Hub.com, Simon Swan and Sara Jones have put together a compelling online proposition for both employers and recruiters, combining service value and benefits that indicate tremendous market potential. Having been singled out from the other award's finalists for an Honourable Mention, we believe they deserve special recognition for their achievement and look forward to seeing how their business progresses over the next few years.”
Hiring-Hub.com’s founders Simon Swan and Sara Jones were invited to London to pitch their business to a judging panel that consisted of Craig Martin, DediPower co-founder; Chris Miller, DediPower CEO; Kamal Ahmed, The Sunday Telegraph Business Editor; Paul Smart, Lloyds TSB and Bob Clift of eSkills UK.
“Naturally we are delighted to be given an Honourable Mention in DediPower’s Digital Innovation Awards,” said Hiring-Hub.com’s co-founder and Managing Partner, Simon Swan. “To receive praise and recognition from such a prestigious panel is a huge boost to us personally, and to our business, which is growing fast. We want Hiring-Hub.com to be the moneysupermarket.com of the recruitment industry. We are confident we have entered the market at the right time and our services have been really well received by employers of all sizes, each of whom are using Hiring-Hub.com to accelerate and streamline their recruitment process.”
