Vacancy Filler Wins Two Deloitte Awards in a Week

The Vacancy Filler team is delighted to announce that the company has won not one, but two,  prestigious awards within a week from professional services firm Deloitte.

We’d like to thank all our customers for helping us to achieve this!

In the awards, Vacancy Filler was ranked the 27th fastest Growing Technology Company in the UK in the 2015 Deloitte Technology Fast 50, and also one of the 500 fastest-growing technology companies across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) – Vacancy Filler was ranked number 183  in this category.Being a Fast 500 EMEA winner is a significant achievement as the awards are a global industry benchmark demonstrating a company’s progress.  Rankings are based on percentage growth over four years, and Vacancy Filler grew 546 per cent during this period.


In addition, as a Loughborough-based company, Vacancy Filler was named highest ranking Midlands company at this year’s awards.

Tony Brookes, Vacancy Filler’s Sales Director,  credits flexibility of its product and customer service with the company’s significant revenue growth. He said, “Our cutting-edge recruitment software doesn’t just save time and money for clients, it also strengthens their brands by improving the candidate’s experience.”

“Recruitment becomes more automated, faster and collaborative between all areas of a business. This is important in a candidate’s market as we have today because quicker decision-making increases your chances of getting the right candidates on board.”


As a cloud-based recruitment platform, the Vacancy Filler Software can be implemented quickly. The company estimates that the product delivers 80% of the functionality of a ‘tier one’ recruitment software product, but at 20% of the cost. 

Brookes continued, “In Deloitte’s annual CEO survey it quoted ‘a lack of new talent in the technology sector’ as the biggest threat to growth in the next 12 months.  We certainly hope to be able to assist companies with finding the talent that they so badly need.”

Vijay Thakrar, Technology, Media and Telecommunications partner for Deloitte in the Midlands commented, “The Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 is internationally recognised as being one of the most important business awards in the sector and because it measures sustained revenue growth over four years, being ranked within it is a truly impressive achievement. Vacancy Filler deserves a lot of credit for its remarkable growth.”

Awards are becoming a regular occurance for Vacancy Filler this year, only a few months back being awarded Top 5 UK Tech Company to work for by Glassdoor. Jason Staniforth, Head of Marketing for Vacancy Filler said, "We take great pride in not only our company brand, but our employer brand as well and the Glassdoor award in particular reinforces that message to anyone considering a career with Vacancy Filler. We're an entrepreneurial and hungry company with the drive and determination to achieve great things in this sector and the Fast 50 and EMEA 500 awards further support that - it's certainly an exciting time to not only be working here, but working with us as well."
