The SEEK Annual Recruitment Awards – 2016 winners



Established to reward and recognise excellence in the recruitment industry across Australia and New Zealand, the SEEK Annual Recruitment Awards (SARAs) have been running for 14 years. Each year celebrates the achievements of the best in the industry, with all submissions being judged by an independent panel.


The engagement and attendance of the SARAs strengthens every year, which is a reflection of the continued support and commitment both recruiters and SEEK have to the industry.

Last night we were able to recognise and celebrate those individuals and organisations that have been driving continual improvement in client and candidate interactions and challenging the status quo. It is your leadership, innovation, best practice and professionalism that raise the bar of the industry and for this, we say thank you.
