Winners 2021

And the winner is...

Congratulations to all the organisations who were shortlisted for an award!

Each year the competition for these awards has intensified, and this year was no different. Despite the challenges we have faced this year in engaging with students and graduates and delivering graduate programmes and internships, the standard has been exceptionally high.

Each of the organisations who entered these awards were judged, and then shortlisted, by a panel of experts from the industry relevant to each category.

Eventually the judges came to a decision, here are our winners for the gradireland Graduate Recruitment Awards 2021!
