ProspectSoft win “Best Small to Medium-Sized Employer” at the National Undergraduate Awards for a 6th time…
ProspectSoft, a market-leading CRM and eCommerce software-as-a-service company, is pleased to announce that it has won the Best SME Undergraduate Employer Award in the National Undergraduate Employability Awards 2018 for the 6th time.
These awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of all stakeholders involved in undergraduate work experience. They benchmark those employers, universities and students across the UK who have demonstrated commitment and dedication to the field of undergraduate employability.
ProspectSoft, based near High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire, employs approx. 50 staff and specialises in developing and delivering CRM and eCommerce software to help SME businesses improve the efficiency of their processes. ProspectSoft has grown by building an outstanding graduate placement programme which brings highly qualified and very able potential employees into the business, and from which the company then meets its recruitment needs.
The awards ceremony took place on Friday 23rd February 2018, where Paralympian Ade Adepitan MBE presented ProspectSoft with the award. This year, placement students impressed the judges once again with another video application for the award, which involved students in the Marketing department creating and editing the video themselves with no external input. Competition for the award was very tough again this year, as ProspectSoft were competing with 9 other SMEs in this category including Canon Medical Research Europe, Golfbreaks.com and Egress Software Technologies.
Commenting on the win, Stuart McLaren, Sales and Marketing Director of ProspectSoft, said: “The placement program at ProspectSoft is one of our proudest achievements. Not only does it give undergraduates a genuine year of work, mentoring, training and responsibility, but for the company it is our main long-term recruitment process. It simply IS the way that we have built our company, in my view, directly because of the placement program, we have the brightest, most dynamic, loyal and dedicated team of staff that I have ever seen at any company. We will not hesitate to continue to invest heavily in our program, so that we continue to find, mentor and recruit the finest teams for all departments. Winning the NUE award again is an absolute privilege and an honour. It is an amazing recognition of everything we do at ProspectSoft to make the placement experience truly exceptional.”
