Employment & Recruitment Awards 2023


It was a fantastic night at the ERF Awards 2023 which took place Friday 24th November at the Shelbourne Hotel. Huge congratulations to all the winners and to those shortlisted. This year saw a 25% increase on overall entries! Once again, it was an extremely tough competition with literally just 1 point separating entrants in some categories!

Thank you also to our MC for the evening Kathyrn Thomas, Jazzlite and Spring Break who all contributed to make it such a great event.
We're already looking forward to the 2024 Awards!
