The TALiNT International Annual Recruitment Awards

If talent is the lifeblood of business, recruitment keeps its heart beating

The TIARAs set a new standard of excellence for the recruitment sector’s crowning achievements.

Join our campaign to recognise exemplary growth, innovation and leadership.


On 15th October 2019, CEOs and senior executives from the recruitment industry’s leading companies will come together to celebrate excellence, innovation and growth at a black-tie Gala Dinner at The Brewery in London.

The TIARAs exclusively recognise companies featured in TALiNT International’s annual Top UK Recruiters Report, which have a turnover of at least £5 million. This represents only 6% of the UK’s c40,000 recruitment firms.
