Redline Group, the Permanent and Contract high technology and engineering specialist are  delighted to announce that Laura Preston, Principal Consultant for Redline’s Contracts and Interim Division has been shortlisted alongside eight others for the Temporary Consultant of the Year Award at the 2019 REC Institute of Recruitment Professionals (IRP) Awards.

The distinguished IRP Awards celebration is a way to reward the best and the brightest in the recruitment industry; it commemorates high standards of recruitment practice as well as professional excellence.

Laura has been an integral part of Redline’s 60+ strong recruitment team for over five years and was recently promoted to Principal Contract Recruitment Consultant. As a senior member of the Contracts and Interim Division, she specialises in placing technical contractors within the electronics, software and control & automation sectors.

Furthermore, Laura completed the REC Level 3 Certificate in Recruitment Practice (QCF) and recently started working towards her Level 4 Diploma in Recruitment Management Qualification.

Last year Laura completed ten 10km runs to raise money for Kidney Cancer UK and is this year she is aiming to outdo herself and run a Half Marathon on behalf of Redline’s charity of the year, MS Therapy Centre Bedfordshire.

Laura comments:

“I am very proud and honoured to be shortlisted for Temporary Consultant of the Year for the second year running. It may sound like a cliché but I’m nothing without the support of the management team and my colleagues who have taught me all I know and who continue to support my growth within the business. I am immeasurably grateful.

I am looking forward to once again representing Redline on the 27th November 2019 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel and will be hoping it is second time lucky!”

Peter Livingstone, Contracts and Interim Director comments:

“I am incredibly thrilled and proud of Laura for this nomination. To be selected for the second year in a row is fantastic. The IRP Awards is a great way for recruitment professionals from an array of industries to come together and celebrate each other’s success.

Laura is a crucial member of the contracts team and always offers help and support to others. Her clients and candidates continuously sing her praises in regard to her communication and commitment.

I still stand by the comment I made last year when Laura’s first nomination was announced. Being nominated for an IRP Award is a remarkable recognition an individual or company can receive in the world of recruitment and is unique in raising awareness towards the positive role models whose exceptional work, candidate care and client relations set the bar for all recruitment professionals and businesses to aspire to.

Redline looks forward to joining and supporting Laura on the 27th November to celebrate the crème de la crème of the recruitment industry.”
