OnRec awards

Divisional Director Ian Partington was the proud winner of the “Personality of the Year” award at the 2014 OnRec awards

Congratulations to our divisional director Ian Partington as he won the Personality of the Year Award on behalf of Simply Jobs Boards.

One of the founding members of the Just Engineering jobs board over 15 years ago, Ian Partington is the dynamic MD behind Simply Jobs Boards. Starting the company himself six years ago, Friday Media Group the UK’s largest independent publisher bought it from him, however he has now been appointed a place on the board of directors, making decisions on new opportunities.

As MD he has seen the Simply Jobs Board group continue to grow through a period of economic decline and challenging conditions for the recruitment and sales markets through a combination of pushing innovation within the company and ensuring the Simply Jobs Boards reputation remains the best in the recruitment industry.

A key influencer in the company’s implementation of their state-of-the-art Autonomy CV searching and parsing technology, Ian is keen to drive the company forward while maintaining the standards and functionality the sites have come to be known for. He is also a driving force behind many of the Simply Jobs Groups’ individual social networking and community sites, believing that social recruitment is the future of the industry.

Well done Ian and here’s to a great 2014!
