Redwigwam, a leading flexible working community, has won a National Online Recruitment Award.
Redwigwam, which is headquartered in Liverpool, won Best Innovation in Online Recruitment at this year’s NORA awards. They were also a finalist in the Best Small Recruitment Agency category.
Now in their 20th year, the annual awards recognise and acclaim the very best examples of online recruitment in the UK.
The NORAs view the recruitment sector from the perspective of the jobseeker and aim to shine a light on the very best examples of excellence in the industry. This year’s awards were held virtually for the first time.
Lorna Davidson, Founder and CEO of redwigwam, said: “We are delighted to have won a NORA award for our work.
“Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic our team has been working hard to give jobseekers across the country the opportunity to take on flexible and temporary jobs and to quickly get back into work. Through our AI and algorithm based technology platform we are able to move at pace – filling 98% of roles within 4 hours of jobs being placed.
“We want to keep innovating both through our technology but also in the creation of a vibrant flexible working community of over 130,000 talented people – who we can help work how and when they want. We are passionate about driving the conversation about the power of flexible working to help re-imagine workforces as we come through Covid.”
Redwigwam has seen a huge rise in the number of workers and businesses using its AI-powered online platform since the coronavirus lockdown began. In addition to the 130,000 workers registered on the platform, over 4,500 businesses have signed up to tap into the company’s talent pool.
Businesses using the redwigwam community to find workers include Coca-Cola, Kellogg’s, Morrisons, Tesco, Burtons Biscuits, SimplyCook, the Snaffling Pig Company and Revolution Bars.
Redwigwam recently unveiled a new brand identity and high-profile integrated marketing campaign, including a national TV advertising debut under the banner “Changing Work for Good”. It follows private equity investment into the Liverpool-based business secured during the lockdown.
