Blayze Group Shortlisted for new Construction Awards

Blayze Group is delighted to have been selected as a finalist in the "Best Recruitment Consultancy" category of the 2016 Construction Investing in Talent Awards, making the first ever shortlist of this brand new award scheme.

The Construction Investing in Talent Awards has been created by Construction News and New Civil Engineer to reward individuals and teams who work so hard to attract and retain the best talent in the industry.

As a leading recruitment consultancy in the Property and Construction sector, Blayze Group is only too aware of the difficulties in attracting and retaining talent. In addition to its specialist recruiting services, Blayze Group also helps clients develop and retain their key people with a range of bespoke Talent Management programmes.

Harvey Gretton, Blayze Group MDHarvey Gretton, Blayze Group MD, said: "With the current skills shortage and with pressure to dramatically increase productivity in the house building sector, investing in talent has never been more important for the industry. We are pleased to be part of this new award to recognise those in HR, recruitment and talent management who do so much to contribute to the success of the UK construction industry."

Laura Padgett, Associate Director, Blayze Group
Laura Padgett, Associate Director at Blayze Group's Manchester office commented: "It's great to be recognised by respected industry journals like Construction News and New Civil Engineer for the hard work the Blayze Group team puts into sourcing, securing and retaining great people for our clients."

Construction News
editor Rebecca Evans said: "This year’s shortlist demonstrates just how hard businesses across the whole industry are working to attract, retain and develop the best talent. The initiatives highlighted by our finalists demonstrate the all-too-often unsung creativity of the people behind the projects.”

The winners of the Construction Investing in Talent Awards 2016 will be announced at a glamorous awards ceremony at the Grosvenor House hotel in London on 8 December.
