FCSA partner with Talent Tech Star Awards to recognise Contractor Solution of the Year

The Freelancer & Contractor Services Association (FCSA) has partnered with TALiNT Partners and the Talent Tech Star Awards to launch a new accolade – The FCSA Contractor Solution of the Year.

“The Talent Tech Star Awards (TTSAs) celebrate the solutions and providers transforming recruitment and talent acquisition,” said Alex Evans, Programme Director of TALiNT Partners. “The TTSAs are part of TALiNT Partners’ TIARA programme, which recognises excellence in delivery, innovation with impact, sustainable value and growth across the talent acquisition eco-system.”

A campaign to highlight the vital role of suppliers and solution providers to the recruitment and talent acquisition industry will profile finalists and winners in TALiNT International, which is distributed to over 52,000 In-house, Agency, and RPO leaders.

“The FCSA is proud to sponsor an award that recognises the value delivered by our sector to the UK’s growing population of freelance and contract workers at a time when they need support more than ever,” said Julia Kermode, CEO of the FCSA. As part of its sponsorship of this award, all FCSA members qualify for a 50% discount on entries for the Talent Tech Star Awards.
