Suffolk recruitment company Sanctuary Personnel was among the main winners at the 2014 Recruiter Awards for Excellence.

The Ipswich-based company, which employs around 150 people at offices on the town’s Waterfront, was named Recruitment Agency of the Year at the ceremony, which is the UK’s largest event for the recruitment sector and was held this year at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

The judges said Sanctuary’s commitment to responsible business practice set it apart from other agencies, describing it as “an extremely well-run business across all disciplines”.

Sanctuary Personnel, a member of the EADT’s Future50 listing of up-and-coming businesses, specialises in recruitment within the health and social care professions and has increased its turnover by 49% in the past year.

Managing director James Rook said: “We are honoured as a company to win such a prestigious award. I am delighted that everyone in the company is getting some of the recognition that they so thoroughly deserve.

“We definitely have a unique environment with people who genuinely care about each other and what we can achieve by going that extra mile in supporting our colleagues, our clients and candidates. I feel utterly humbled and extremely fortunate to work with such amazing people.”
