Media Employer of the Year

Pathfinders Recruitment are proud to present Media Employer of the Year 2018! Now in its 21st year, this unique event will return for 2018 on 22nd February.

MEOY is the UK’s only annual award to celebrate employment achievements within the media sector. Working alongside a number of progressive London based media companies, Pathfinders Recruitment’s flagship event celebrates media companies’ ability to attract, inspire and develop their staff. Engaging with a variety of media companies and backgrounds from start ups to bigger agencies, MEOY focusses on championing success within L&D in the media sector.

At Pathfinders Recruitment we regularly survey our candidates on what they look for in a potential employer. The responses always lead to the same conclusions: employees are excited by prospects, training, and opportunities for progression. In a regularly changing employment market, it is therefore more important than ever to highlight shining examples of employers’ progressive treatment of their staff.

All our nominations will be reviewed by an independent judging panel that have been charged with paying particular attention to the methodology of attracting and retaining talent, training, appraisals and company culture.

Last year’s event involved our guests being escorted (after a welcome glass of champagne and a canapé or two) into a seated cinema where they were dazzled by a filmed overview of the companies in attendance. Despite losing one of our favourite judges Patrick Mills (Director of Professional Development at IPA), this year we are taking the event a step forward, bringing in a comedian to host as well as expanding both our nomination and guest list. We also have two of our prestigious judging panel confirmed: Dee Gibbs, CEO and Founder of Liberty Communications; and Aliya Vigor-Robertson, Co-Founder of JourneyHR. Previous winners of the award include Frank PR (2017) and PHA Media (2016) – who had this to say about their achievement:

We are very proud to have won the Pathfinders Media Employer of the Year Award and are grateful for the gravitas that having such a prestigious accolade has given us. Everyone at PHA has a real love and genuine passion for what they do, and we are thrilled to be recognised for our engaging and supportive culture through this award. Our recruitment process has benefitted greatly from the positive message and recommendation that being Media Employer of the Year provides. We confidently promote our creative culture, supportive team and rewarding benefits package knowing that this has been recognised by a reputable industry expert.”
