Sutton Recruitment shortlisted for prestigious regional recruitment award

A recruitment agency in Hull has been shortlisted for the “Business of the Year Small: Under 25 employees” award in the 2019 Hull Daily Mail Business Awards.

The shortlisted agency, Sutton Recruitment, is one of The Recruit Venture Group’s many successful joint venture partners and last year rebranded having previously been trading as Jark (Hull) Ltd.

The independent recruitment agency is owned by Graeme Sutton, who has worked been working in recruitment for almost two decades. Graeme said he was thrilled to have been shortlisted for the prestigious award after a successful year for his business.

He said: “I am really proud of all my team, 2018/2019 was a very busy year for us and it is great to see that hard work recognised.

“The rebrand was a real team effort, all the staff played their part in making it a success and I couldn’t be prouder of the Sutton Recruitment team.

“It was a good year for the business and to see that success highlighted by the Hull Daily Mail at one of the region’s biggest business events is very humbling.

“A few years ago, if you would have told me that one day I would be the owner of a business shortlisted for regional awards, I would have said no chance but my partnership with The Recruit Venture Group have given me everything I need to make it happen.”

Graeme’s business is based in Hull city centre and supplies a range of local commercial, driving and industrial businesses with a mix of temporary, permanent and contract staff.

Paul Mizen, Managing Director of The Recruit Venture Group said Sutton Recruitment’s shortlisting was much deserved.

“Graeme and his team have worked really hard over the past year and I really hope they go on to win the award,” he said.

“The success of Sutton Recruitment is a great example of what is possible when a driven local recruiter is given the chance to launch their own business.

“Graeme has built a great team in his office and together they deliver for their candidates and clients day in day out.”

Sutton Recruitment will find out if they are successful at the Hull Daily Mail Business Awards on Thursday November 14th.
