Laura was awarded the REC Level 3 Certificate in Recruitment Practice (QCF), further demonstrating her commitment to continued professional development. She has also qualified for Redline’s six-monthly Sales Conference which invites the top performing Consultants and Managers from Redline’s 60+ strong team to step back from the hustle of managing multiple recruitment projects, to review and analyse the last 6 months’ performance, and seek new ways to identify, attract and deliver the best technology talent to the high-tech and engineering sectors. This was the 5th sales conference in succession she has qualified for and she has just secured qualification for her 6th Sales Conference.

For the majority of 2018, Laura has dedicating her spare time to training for numerous marathons, with a challenge to complete no less than ten 10KM runs to raise money for Kidney Cancer UK after her Uncle-In-Law sadly passed away in late 2016 from the disease. She has now successfully completed all 10 runs and in a further challenge she has added a Half Marathon in October, as well as entering herself into the ballot for the London Marathon for 2019 to continue her fundraising.

Over the last 10 years, the renowned IRP Awards has seen over 190 winners, 1,150 shortlisted recruiters and companies, and thousands more recruitment professionals come together to celebrate the best of our industry.

Unmatched in prestige, the IRP Awards are the only recruitment sector awards hosted by the REC and present a unique platform upon which to celebrate the successes of the brightest recruitment professionals and companies in the UK.
