This time last week, some of my friends and colleagues were recovering from ‘the RADs’ – the recruitment industry awards presented at Grosvenor House in London. Five agencies I freelance with had work in the shortlist so I was following their progress on twitter. I was thrilled to see three of them pick up awards. I was particularly proud of the Havas creative team, Duncan James and Andy Sewell, for the National Offender Management Service campaign which won three awards including Work of the Year. I was especially pleased because Duncan commissioned me to do the comping and retouching! Yay! Well done, boys!

Here’s one I rescued from my old blog, for my recruitment comms fans.
A business can pay a recruitment agency thousands of pounds to define their brand and target the right people for their company. Or they can take the top off a desk, grab a marker (or two) and create their own recruitment message. They can also advertise for free in the centre of town near their office.
Maybe they can buy some new stationery with the money saved. And I’m sure, if you get the job, they’ll put the desk back together for you.
If it worked (who knows, maybe it did!), it should be up for a RAD.
