Red Rose Award: The genuine love and loyalty to this great county remains the same

May 2021 2021

It brings us great pleasure to announce that Eventus Recruitment Group is sponsoring the Red Rose Awards for their fourth year.

Eventus Recruitment Group are a professional services recruitment business, who provide genuine consultation recruitment results within legal, accountancy, finance, and HR. They will sponsor this year’s new category, the Professional Services Award.

With 20 categories open for entries, there’s something for all businesses in Lancashire to aim for. The Red Rose Awards celebrates business through sector specific categories, plus categories open to all such as employer of the year, customer service award and the innovation award.

Siobhan Courtney, managing director of Eventus Recruitment Group told us why they support the Red Rose Awards, and how it benefits the Lancashire business community.

RRA: How did Eventus Recruitment Group first get involved with the Red Rose Awards?

SC: We first became involved four years ago and sponsored the Legal Service Award, we have continued to sponsor this award for the last three years. This year, we were delighted to be asked to sponsor the new category of Professional Services Award, which reflects our business perfectly, we readily accepted.

RRA: What changes have you seen in the Red Rose Awards over the years that you have been involved?

SC: The Red Rose Awards have evolved hugely over the last few years, from the categories to the qualifying questions to the awards evening. What has remained the same is the genuine love and loyalty to this great county and all that creates and develops business within it.    

RRA: What is the most rewarding part of being a sponsor?

SC: Knowing that you are genuinely contributing to a business becoming a winner. As twee as that sounds, I adore the judging and furthermore the delight of announcing the very deserved winner. It is also a great instrument to promote ones’ own business too. The night itself is obviously an added bonus. 

RRA: How do you feel that the Red Rose Awards benefit Lancashire?

SC: It highlights to the wider geographic the excellent businesses that are transacting in Lancashire that may well not be known otherwise. It is also a great way for Lancashire based businesses to meet each other, refer, recommend, and network.

RRA: How do you feel that your involvement with the Red Rose Awards benefits Eventus Recruitment Group?

SC: Further exposure and introductions within our market and profile building with others. It has developed already existing business relationships and now that the Professional Services Award is incorporating other professionals rather than just law, I am excited to see where this takes us.

RRA: Do you have any words of advice for businesses who may be considering entering this year?

SC: The process is a great exercise for any business, to tell all how great your offering is and how hardworking your team are. The process is succinct, and it is a great experience to be able to demonstrate to the judges why you should be the winner in the category. Regarding the initial form my tip would be the same as my dad told me when sitting an exam, read the questions properly and answer fully! 

Since the awards were launched in 2011, it has steadily grown and become the centrepiece attraction for the business community.

Businesses interested in entering the awards have until August 20 to submit their entry forms. The finalists will be announced on September 10, and they will then be given the opportunity to put their best case to the judges on September 22 and 23.
