Gattaca awarded Best Back Office Team

Gattaca internal recruitment department named Best Back Office Team at the Recruitment International Awards.

On Thursday evening, Gattaca was presented with the Best Back Office Team award for internal recruitment, at the Recruitment International awards.

Following the acquisition of international technology recruitment specialists Networkers last year, the company headcount doubled in size. This has presented a number of challenges for the internal recruitment team, which is now responsible for managing 16 global offices and multiple brands.

Over the past financial year, the team has proved invaluable to the business, filling 377 vacancies, achieving a sales headcount growth of 9%. Staff turnover has also reduced by ten percentage points during this period.

The team has ensured an efficient, seamless implementation of the internal recruitment process to the wider business, taking on entirely new sectors, regions and practices in the process.

Upon receiving the award, Claire Cross, Head of Talent Acquisition said, “We are immensely proud to receive this award. The internal recruitment team has worked tirelessly over the last 18 months to build relationships across an expanding business and ensure that we are attracting the very best talent in the industry.”

Chief Executive of Gattaca, Brian Wilkinson, said: “We have been growing quickly as a business, which has put significant demands on our back office. This award is recognition of their great work and ability to adapt and meet the challenges we give them.”
