Specialist recruitment finance provider, Bibby Financial Services (BFS), has been awarded best Banking & Financial Services supplier at the 2017 Recruitment International awards.
The award ceremony took place on 16 February at the Andaz Hotel in London. This year was the first year Recruitment International recognised leading industry suppliers, in addition to the UK’s best recruitment sector businesses.
Susan Farmer, Head of Recruitment Finance at BFS said: “We’re absolutely thrilled with this award. Recruitment businesses really are the beating heart of the UK economy, driving employment and output. This award is testament to the fantastic relationships we have with our Recruitment Finance clients and throughout the sector.”
BFS supports more than 7,000 UK SMEs through its 18 regional offices. The funder has a specialist Recruitment Finance solution, combining working capital funding with back office facilities to help recruitment businesses to grow.
Susan Farmer added: “On top of placing temporary and permanent staff, UK recruiters face a number of significant challenges in their daily operations. Back office administration, timesheet management, PAYE legislation and cashflow all have to be carefully managed to ensure the smooth running of a recruitment business, while making sure customer’s needs are met.
“Our Recruitment Finance team work hard to help our clients to overcome these challenges and to support their growth ambitions, so it’s fantastic to be recognised in this way.”
