A South West-based IT recruitment business have been shortlisted in the annual Recruiter Awards as one of the Best New Agencies in the UK.
Working from offices in College Green, Bristol, TRIA is a team of IT and Business Transformation staffing specialists working with some of the most senior, high-profile IT professionals across the UK.
Their current client portfolio include organisations such as Whitbread, Barclays and Marks & Spencer.
Since setting up in February 2015, working out of small serviced offices, the agency has grown to a team of 17 and last year turned over £8 million.
Having worked in recruitment for their whole careers, TRIA felt that there was a different way to do business and were fed up of the macho, bell ringing culture and wanted to create a more grown-up recruitment workplace, where people were treated like people.
Director David Kirkpatrick, said: “This is the first public and industry acknowledgement the team has had and it’s really, really exciting to be recognised as one of the top 6 new agencies in the whole of the industry.
“The market has never been tougher, it’s very saturated with plenty of competition making big promises about how they are different. Our sector is also extremely candidate driven which means we need to utilise all routes to market efficiently and always think about the long term needs of our clients.
“Going through the award entry process was tough, but it was a great opportunity for us to remember all the special milestones over last three years, hear first-hand from clients and candidates about the way we work and see the transition we have made.”
The team will find out if they are overall winners at the awards ceremony on May 3rd in London.
