In November 2018, Adriana Brito Brito, our Branch Manager and Lead Consultant at One Step Recruitment’s Chard branch won the award for the IRP’s “Job’s Transform Lives: Best Candidate Experience”

The Institute of Recruitment Professionals (IRP) Awards are the most prestigious awards in recruitment and the only recruitment sector awards hosted by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC).

After picking up the highly vaunted “Best Candidate Experience” Award, Adriana was overwhelmed with just how highly her candidate management was valued by the wider recruitment industry.

Adriana rightly deserved the award – her candidate management is unparalleled, and she leads the team in establishing life long relationships with clients and candidates. Her passion has always been to treat everyone fairly, no matter their background, no matter their needs, and she has now been recognised by the governing body for recruiters in the UK for her excellent work.

However, we have recently found out her win was the first award win for any agency in Somerset. No other agency, national or independent, from Somerset has received an IRP award, ever.

Our Managing Director Nick Mock had this to say: “Somerset has no shortage of recruitment agencies; all representing the work force in brilliant ways, and Adriana’s win last year was well deserved. To find out she is true outlier for the county is nothing short of the icing on the cake. We couldn’t be prouder. Long may she continue to deliver her service to our candidates”

Adriana is not only One Step’s strongest recruiter, but the leading light in Somerset. Well done Adri!
