“To be aligned with so many worthy finalists and awarding us again this recognition will no doubt give us even more determination to go from strength-to-strength.”

In three years, The Job Show has put on 35 shows nationwide at Premiership football clubs and has just launched The Job Show TV - a one hour recruitment and careers programme on Peterborough-based Ideal World Shopping Channel.

Stewart Craig, general commercial manager for Ideal World Shopping Channel, said: “Congratulations to Caroline, Victoria, and the team at The Job Show.

“When we were approached by The Job Show to support and promote their recruitment events, we knew that this was something very special.”

The finalists were chosen from the hundreds of businesses that entered or were nominated across 18 award categories.

They will now prepare for live presentations to an expert judging panel who will decide the overall winners.

The awards ceremony will take place on November 15 in London.
