It’s two major awards in a week for top recruitment company Finegreen Associates who have just picked up the 2104 Best Business Award for Small-Medium Sized Business – to add to earlier success in this year’s prestigious Health Investor awards.

This is the second year running that healthcare recruitment specialists Finegreen have won both awards – with the Best Business judges praising the company for “phenomenal growth…despite challenging economic conditions and NHS budget cuts over the last few years.”

The judges added: “With a strong emphasis on first-rate customer service, investing and supporting additional training for its staff, and nurturing and developing long-term relationships with clients, it has raised the bar in its industry and differentiated itself from competitors.

“Finegreen Associates has become a leader in its field and set new standards for the recruitment industry.”

Finegreen Chief Executive Neil Fineberg responded: “When we won the Best Business Award last year, the judges forecast that we would have a ‘brilliant future’, so it is excellent news that we have maintained those high standards in their eyes.

“One of the ways we have ‘differentiated from competitors’, in the judges’ words, is by including in our ranks advisors and managers with significant NHS track records – so that  clients receive both expert recruitment and healthcare advice.”

He adds:  “It is essential that we keep up this high level of performance, and innovation, if we are to play a part in ensuring that healthcare providers are recruiting high quality leaders, particularly at a time when NHS management is under unprecedented scrutiny in the wake of the Francis Report.”

 “This is very much a team effort at Finegreen,” sums up Neil, “and the award gives me an opportunity to thank all of my colleagues for their hard work on behalf of the company.”

Finegreen Associates is a young, dynamic specialist recruitment consultancy – focusing on permanent, interim and fixed-term contract management and executive roles in both public and private sectors.

We’ve won a fair number of awards since starting in 2005 – and have been listed in the Sunday Times Fast Track Top 100 businesses – but what really keeps us going at Finegreen is the positive detailed feedback we get from our customers and candidates on a regular basis.

It is this attention to the detailed needs of the people we work for which has underpinned  Finegreen’s growth and success over the past eight years – a  success story which has bucked the challenging economic trends over that period.

Part of this attention to detail includes offering teams of specialist consultants, each expert in areas reflecting our clients’ and candidates’ fields of interest – whether this is budgets or buildings.

It’s a way of working which has seen us collect awards such as Best Small to Medium Business in the 2013 & 2014 Best Business Awards, as well as Recruiter of the Year in both the 2013 & 2014 Health Investor Awards – while our Chief Executive Neil Fineberg has also been nominated for Entrepreneur of the Year.
