Norwich-based automotive recruitment specialist Progress Recruitment Solutions has been named ‘Recruitment Agency of the Year’ in the Motor Trader Industry Awards 2018.

It was the 28th year of the prestigious awards, with the ceremony once again being held in the fine surrounds of The Great Room of The Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Park Lane on the evening of 11th July.
The win follows Progress Recruitment Solutions also being ‘Highly Commended’ at the Car Dealer Power Awards 2018 just a couple weeks earlier on 28th June 2018.

The Motor Trader Industry Awards night was attended by Managing Director Laura Rycroft along with Regional Directors Mary Thompson (North) and Sharron Spall (South), with Laura collecting the award on the night.
“It was a superb evening and we’re absolutely delighted to have won,” said Laura. “It’s a genuine honour and recognises how far we’ve come as a company.
Credit goes to our exceptional team and sincere thanks to all our loyal clients.”

The win tops a rapid rise for Progress Recruitment Solutions, having been founded just seven years ago, the business now employs 30 people and has recently extended its head offices to meet rising demand for its services.
