The Financial Services team at Pure Search has been recognised for its commitment to excellence in Compliance and Regulation at last night’s Compliance Register Platinum Awards – winning in two categories.
Pure Search scooped the award for ‘Best Recruitment Firm – Compliance’ together with the newly created ‘Best Recruitment Firm – Legal’ award.
This prestigious ceremony for the Compliance industry, judged by independent body ACE (The Academy of Compliance Excellence), acknowledges and awards those who have given ‘Exemplary Service to Compliance and Regulation’.
As part of supporting the awards, Pure Search donated £800 to Prostate Cancer Care, which helped the Compliance Register surpass its target to raise £15,000 for selected charities.
Ben Goh, Chairman of the Compliance Register, said ‘Pure is well respected in the legal and compliance field. Pure has a reputation of being well-connected and thorough in their approach to recruitment. The double scoop last night reflects their reputation in the area of compliance and legal recruitment. ’
‘These two awards come toward the end of what’s been a fantastic year at Pure’, commented Chris Nelson, CEO at Pure Search. ‘We set out with a focus on securing the right talent to lead our Legal & Compliance teams, and I am thrilled to see that all of the hard work has paid off. It’s an honour to be acknowledged by the Compliance Register; the judging process is exceptionally rigorous and led by experts in Compliance and Regulation.
‘In particular, given the prominence of lawyers in the provision of regulatory advice and the ever increasing needs of firms to avoid enforcement action, it is wholly appropriate that the Compliance Register acknowledges the talent in the legal space. This is the first time the Register has had a category recognising the Best Recruitment Firm – Legal and it has been fantastic to be recognised with such an award.
‘I would also like to thank the judges for their recognition for Pure Search not just in the Legal Recruitment Category but also for our continued support to the industry in the provision of talent in the Compliance arena. Winning Best Recruitment Firm in Compliance is fantastic recognition for us in a market that has seen many new entrants.’
