National Locums sales director Simon Hill has been shortlisted for a prestigious national award.

Simon has been named in the Best Candidate Experience category in the Institute of Recruitment Professional Awards, which recognises the very best in recruitment practice throughout the UK.

It is the latest achievement in National Locums’ prizewinning performance this year. The company was named Business of the Year and Professional Practice of the Year in the Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards, and has been shortlisted in two categories in the Midlands Family Business Awards.

The REC/IRP Awards nomination recorded how Simon is dedicated to finding the very best ‘fit’ between client and candidate; how he supports candidates’ career progression; and how he will spend evenings and weekends seeing candidates to ensure he meets and exceeds their expectations.

His nomination is supported by a shoal of candidate testimonials, praising his professionalism and “that magic touch that is needed to streamline the NHS and make this world a better place”.

The award will be presented at a gala dinner in London on 7 December.
