About the Awards
After another incredible year, the quest to discover and recognise the increasing achievements of UK In-house Recruitment Teams and the individuals that form them has officially begun.
During a sustained period of industry reform, in-house recruitment functions face a number of challenges, led by demands from jobseekers and hiring managers. Entries to these Awards are welcomed from in-house recruiters within all company sizes, across all industry sectors.
#IHRA19 took place on the 4th of December 2019 at the Park Plaza Wesminster Bridge. We enjoyed a fun-filled evening of exquisite food, dancing, entertainment and, of course, the awards themselves! Watch the video to see for yourself.

Our Evening’s Charity – Chasing Connor’s Cure
In February 2016, the beautiful Connor was diagnosed with a form of Muscular Dystrophy called Duchenne (DMD).
Duchenne is the most common fatal genetic disease diagnosed in childhood & effects 1 in 3,500 boys in the UK. Unfortunately today it has no cure.
In general, a steady decline in muscle strength between the ages of 6 and 11 is expected and by 12 years many children are confined to a wheelchair. By their late teens most young people with Duchenne lose the ability to move their arms and experience more problems with breathing and with the heart.
Those with Duchenne do have shortened lives, it is unusual for someone with Duchenne to live beyond their 30s. However, advances in management of the condition are increasing life expectancy and enabling more young adults with Duchenne to lead independent lives.
Research is underway for both enhanced therapy and a cure, but it’s vital for Connor and other boys like him that these projects receive funding to continue and even accelerate their development.
This year, we will be having a text to donate service to help raise money for this incredible Charity.
