Worldwide Recruitment Solutions (WRS), a recruitment company specializing in talent acquisition across the oil and gas, mining, marine and power sectors globally, was listed as the U.K.’s 18th best small company to work for at the Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For 2014 awards ceremony on February 26. WRS was also awarded a three-star rating (the maximum available) for its employee engagement, care and staff satisfaction.

A total of 897 businesses registered to take part in the Sunday Times’ four surveys; the leading 325 were recognized in four lists: “100 Best Companies to Work For;” “100 Best Small Companies to Work For;” “25 Best Big Companies to Work For” and “100 Best Not-for-Profit Organizations to Work For.” Employees were engaged in a rigorous survey which ascertained their satisfaction across a number of factors deemed to contribute to a great workplace.

Managing Director Mark Brown commented, “Our employees make WRS what it is; their job satisfaction is of the utmost importance to us and I and the other managers have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback we’ve received. The hard work and passion of everyone on the team shines through in the fantastic work they have done, particularly over the last year. We are constantly refining our strategy, investing in our staff and developing our strong company culture; it’s fantastic to know that this has paid off.”

Worldwide Recruitment Solutions said it has experienced rapid growth since inception in 2008. In December 2013, WRS ranked as the U.K.’s eighth fastest growing company in The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track Top 100. WRS now employs more than 60 people at its head office in Altrincham, Cheshire, and will be recruiting internally throughout the year in line with their growth strategy, the company said.
