Compass Executives are pleased to share that the CRS internal marketing team has won ‘In-House Recruitment Marketing Team of the Year’ at the 2022 Recruitment Marketing Awards (RMA’s).

The CRS marketing team is part of the wider business support team that provides internal support across all Compass brands, including Compass Executives.

The RMA’s have been around for more than 40 years, designed to provide reward and recognition for excellence and professionalism in recruitment marketing. Judged by an independent panel of industry experts, a two-stage process is completed to shortlist entries in each category, involving a rigorous assessment of the nominations for identifying the best there is in the recruitment marketing industry.

CRS’s marketing team enjoyed a fantastic evening of celebration, hosted at the Brewery, London, rubbing shoulders with some of the top digital and media agencies who had supported their global clients’ recruitment campaigns.

The ‘In-House Recruitment Team of the Year’ was a new category introduced in 2022, offering the opportunity for marketeers operating within a recruitment business to demonstrate what makes them stand out, by highlighting the objectives of the team, evidencing effectiveness through case studies, return-on-investment, visuals and creative copy to support the nomination, as well as outlining what makes the team different compared to other nominees.

CRS Group Managing Director and Compass Executives Director, Sam Leighton-Smith, said:

I have long suspected that our wonderfully gifted marketing team would come up trumps and take home an award at some point. As an owner, my primary ambition is that everything that leaves the door to our candidates and client partners is of the highest level. Whether this is a pitch deck, an information pack, social media comms, digital content, briefing documents or collateral for our subscriptions, I want the audience to be impacted and remember Compass.

 I am thrilled for everyone within our marketing function as I get to see first-hand the amount they put into each hour of the day, and the commercial success this brings to the entire business. This is no fluke, well done.”

Head of Marketing at CRS, David Bland, commented:

“I’m absolutely delighted for the team to be recognised at such a prestigious awards ceremony – it is a testament to the hard work and outstanding delivery achieved in supporting all Compass brands, day-in, day-out.

 I’m fortunate to be part of an exceptional group of individuals who exceed all demands no matter the timescales or complexity – all done with a smile.

CRS has a number of very exciting projects and plans over the next twelve months, and by being part of this team, I’m both confident and excited to see what we can deliver. Well done everyone!”

The judge’s verdict was that: “The entry was built on an effective team, which had a good strategy and was valued internally”, making CRS stand-out against competitors.
