G4S Events rock into 2011 with award win

G4S Events, Europe’s leading independent event security and safety company, scooped a win for Best Outdoor/ Ambient Media at the Recruitment Awards Design awards (‘RADs’) ceremony, which took place in London at the Grosvenor House Hotel, on Thursday 20 January.  The recruitment campaign was chosen as the winner by the judges who described it as “…very focused and relevant to the target audience.”

The brief for Wave Advertising, who won the contract to deliver the campaign alongside G4S in April 2010, was to recruit Event Safety Stewards for future events and raise awareness of G4S’ event security roles. The results of the award winning campaign were gratifying, with a 600% uplift in applications versus the previous year.

For 21 years the RADs has championed the very best of recruitment marketing. The awards aim to reward agencies and HR professionals who together produce outstanding recruitment campaigns with innovation, skill and effectiveness.

Mark Hamilton, Managing Director, G4S Events said: “We are absolutely thrilled to win this award and it is great recognition for our recruitment team who endeavour to deliver interesting and inventive ways of enticing talented people to work for G4S.

“G4S strives to recruit the best people and as exemplified with this award winning campaign, we also aim to provide the best level of recruitment initiatives.”
