1 min read

A Burton-on-Trent recruitment agency has scooped a top award – for the second year running. 

Kenect Recruitment was acclaimed as Transport and Industrial Recruitment Agency of the Year 2023 in SME News’ UK Enterprise Awards

The accolade reflects outstanding national reviews from clients and candidates as well as feedback from customers on various other review platforms such as google, indeed, and Trustpilot. 

The judges in the awards, which are held online, also recognised Kenect’s unique business model which offers customers a more streamlined approach to working with a recruitment agency. 

The agency’s online registrations offer immediate identification approval and place candidates securely within a database that sorts by skillset best suited jobs.  

Clients’ positions are then fulfilled more quickly while candidates get the job they are seeking quicker.  

Kenect won exactly the same award in 2022 and were automatically re-submitted as previous winners.
