National Online Recruitment Awards, NORA – how does it look like in UK?

In Ireland we have our NRF that gives awards to the recruitment agencies (NRF members only) and within those there is an Award for the Best Recruitment Web Site.

Then we have the Golden Spiders awards that again one has to pay €150 per site to get ‘Nominated’, so the real good work of start-ups is never seen there. Recruiters actually rarely feature there at all with the exception of national job boards that use it for branding.

UK has National Online Recruitment Awards – NORA. In 5 days NORA will be announcing the winner in the long list of categories. Here is a full list of categories and 5 shortlisted candidates for the awards in 2011.
