The NORA’s (National On-Line Recruitment Awards)


The National Online Recruitment Awards have been created to acknowledge and reward excellence in online recruitment practice. Established in 2001, this year will be the tenth annual NORA’s. The list of past finalists and winners accurately describes the evolution of the UK online recruitment sector, which is now recognised as the most advanced and competitive in the world. It is this competition to satisfy increasingly “Internet savvy” candidates which has fuelled one of the fastest growing industries in the UK. Through the NORAs, we seek to recognise this, on behalf of the candidates themselves. The NORAs are established as a standard by which recruitment websites are measured, and are a focused opportunity for recognition within the UK Recruitment Industry. The awards cover the wide range of online players in the sector, including Job Boards, Recruitment Agencies, Employers, Career Advice websites, Trade and National Publications. In addition we have an award for Best Newcomer and Innovation in this continually developing sector.

The National Online Recruitment Awards are hosted by and  The purpose of both sites is to route candidates as quickly and effectively as possible, directly to the vacancies they are searching for.
