The Recruitment Marketing Awards


The Recruitment Marketing Awards 2017 feature 22 categories plus the “Grand Prix” overall winner. They recognise how outstanding creativity, combined with the right medium, results in successful recruitment campaigns. Entries will be accepted from employers and agencies for work carried out since 2016.

The Awards are divided into 15 creative categories and 6 effectiveness or business impact categories. Each category has its own judging criteria and attention to diversity will be considered in every category. All categories recognise original concepts and flair in their execution as well as broader business benefits from effective recruitment practices.

The RMAs 2017 are now closed for entries. Winners of the Awards will be announced at the Brewery in London on 12 July 2017.
