The launch of the Rochdale Business Awards 2017

That time of year is fast approaching once again – the 2017 Rochdale Business Awards.

Our very own Karen and Gavin were delighted to be amongst the businesses and sponsors from within the region invited to Cock a Doodle Moo on Yorkshire Street in Rochdale to help launch November’s annual showpiece at Rochdale Town Hall.

The event holds a special place in the Recruitment Solutions annual events diary; We have been nominee’s, sponsors and also winners!

For those who have either never attended the evening or even entered for an award, it can be easy to underestimate the impact that nights such as the Rochdale Business Awards make. Not only are they a fantastic way to showcase all of the good things that are taking place in the Borough and also the North West Region, it also recognises all efforts made by the business community and the wider community in general.

Of what the awards mean to the community, our Managing Director, Karen Reynolds, said…



Rochdale and the Borough are undergoing a fantastic period of growth and redevelopment and evenings like this are recognition of that.

We’re proud to be based in the heart of the town and to be working alongside the spectrum of great local businesses, from multi national PLC’s through to SME’s and limited Companies, who are all working hard to aid this progress.

This year we are proud to be involved in the awards in a sponsorship capacity.

Part of our involvement means not only do we are attend the awards (which is always a great night), it also means we take part in the judging process and the announcement of the winner on the night. From first-hand experience we can say it’s a very exciting time to be nominated in any category, so congratulations in advance from everyone in our office to all of the businesses and professionals involved.
