View the very best work of the recruitment communications industry, as recognised by the RAD Awards over the years.  'Virgin Money's Immersive Assessment' by TMP Worldwide walked away with 'Work of the Year 2015'. Judges commented, "...we loved the sheer creativity and originality in this first for recruitment - a new benchmark that all employers should aspire to."


We’re delighted to have won 'Best Graduate Campaign' and 'Graduate Website' in the first year of our new global employer brand rollout. The RADs have gained the respect of our industry over the last 25 years and are notoriously the toughest, and the most prestigious ones to win!

Miranda Davies, Director – Emerging Talent, Thales

The RADs sets the benchmark for the industry. Everyone dreams of winning 'Work of the Year', we are so proud to win this accolade as this is testament to the thirst to innovate and bravery of Virgin Money combined with the passion and desire to create something truly unique by the team at TMP.

Simon Wright, Business Director, TMP Worldwide

We were absolutely thrilled to win a highly coveted RAD award for our film ‘Change Their Lives’. This is the first time we have entered the RAD Awards and we are delighted that Teach First was recognised as the best in its category. The event itself was fantastic and incredibly well organised. This may have been our first time at the RADs but it won’t be our last!

Jo Denye, Marketing Manager, Teach First

We’re absolutely thrilled to have been awarded the Best School Leaver/Apprenticeship Campaign for the 2nd consecutive year. The schools audience is such an exciting area to develop recruitment communications towards, and this kind of recognition from the industry is a great achievement for everyone involved in the campaign at EY.

Steve Keith, Employer Brand Manager, EY

Winning the award was one of the proudest moments of my career. The most exciting thing about working in Talent is that it’s a constantly evolving world and the role, as well as what you need to do to attract candidates is always changing. Throwing out the rule book with this project to produce something innovative felt like a risk but the team at TMP were brilliant and winning the award felt like validation that our ideas worked. The awards are a showcase of the best work in the industry and are inspiring for anybody working in Talent Acquisition so being recognised in this forum was a huge privilege.

Lyndsey Henderson, Head of Talent Acquisition, rentalcars.com

When we started the search for a creative entrepreneur for Virgin Money – we knew we would need to do something very different to attract a truly exceptional individual – and traditional recruitment approaches wouldn’t suffice. We needed a ‘game changing’ recruitment approach to attract ‘game changing’ candidates. With our agency developed the highly innovative ‘Worlds Most Creative Interview’ concept and delivered flawlessly against the creative brief. The project was exciting and, fun. Ultimately, we hired a great candidate we would not have otherwise found.

Joanne Hannant, Head of Resourcing and HR Services, Virgin Money
