MRINetwork franchise announces winner of Office of the Year award

Recruitment franchise MRINetwork Worldwide has presented franchisees from its UK and European network with awards recognising their achievements over the last 12 months. The gala awards dinner took place during the MRINetwork annual conference in Athens.

Madrid-based franchisee Luis Alvarez scooped two awards, the 'Office of the Year' and 'Office with the largest percentage of growth,' for attaining the highest revenue and percentage of growth. His office specialises in finding careers within the pharmaceutical, medical devices, biotech and construction and telecoms industries.

Luis comments: 'I am very proud to be not only the number one office in Europe for the third year running, but also the number one office worldwide (outside the U.S). My success is built on core knowledge and relationships built up within the industries, a consequence of the hard and proactive work of my team of consultants, and my team's ability to provide both clients and candidates with exactly what they are looking for.'

Franchise owner Robert Weichsberger collected the 'Owner & Manager of the Year' award, for his Munich based office. Robert looks after the needs of clients from the fast moving consumer goods sector (FMCG) and has been finding quality candidates for them since 2001.

"At the moment there is significant growth in the consumer goods sector, that's where I'm seeing a huge demand for highly qualified candidates," says Robert. 'In addition to this, there is also a marked increase in recruitment within the health and wellness sector.'

While franchise owner Sandra Hill walked away with the award for team spirit. CEO of MRINetwork Michael Jalbert says: 'This year, the company is delighted to present this award to Sandra Hill, the franchise owner of MRINetwork The Hill Group. Sandra was chosen because she has worked tirelessly, in her role as Regional Representative, to represent the views of the network and remains as passionate now about the business, as when she first started.'
