2nd December 2016

The industry’s fastest growing recruitment company Advance-TRS collected the High Growth Award and were selected as Overall Winner of the SME Surrey Business Awards at an Awards Dinner in Epsom on Wednesday night.

The Surrey-based company has achieved phenomenal growth in their first 5 years and were thrilled to be unanimously voted winners of the ‘Enterprise M3 Growth Hub – High Growth Award’ by a panel of local business leaders and chosen as the Overall Winner on the night.

“Winning the High Growth Award was a fantastic achievement recognising the whole team’s hard work over the past 5 years. To be chosen as the Overall Winner of the SME Awards in such a vibrant region for business is a huge compliment and really was the cherry on top of a fantastic evening” said Group Managing Director Andy Ridout.

In the last year alone the company has nearly doubled in size, expanding their admin, finance, marketing, compliance and sales teams. In order to accommodate this extraordinary growth, the team recently celebrated an office expansion which has nearly doubled their office space, spanning two large floors in central Guildford.

All of this has been achieved whilst maintaining a singular dedication to excellent customer service. Following a collaborative consultation process with directors and staff, the company’s Core Values of Quality, Commitment, Integrity, Honesty and Loyalty were rolled out at this year’s Annual Summer Conference.

With business development plans firmly rooted in these five principles, Advance-TRS aims to continue this pattern of growth whilst maintaining their strong reputation as dependable, effective and honest.

Advance-TRS’s high standards have also been recognised by a number of awards and qualifications, operating ISO 9001 certification, the world’s most popular quality management system, achieving OHSAS 18001, the internationally recognised hallmark for occupational health and safety management best practice and placing as a finalist in the coveted Recruitment Excellence category at the 2016 UK Rail Industry Awards.
