LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM (July 20, 2017) – AIA Worldwide, a global leader in talent acquisition technologies, today announced it has won the CIPD Recruitment Marketing Graduate Initiative Award, on behalf of their client Thales.
Since its launch in 1980, The Recruitment Marketing Awards continue to provide recognition for excellence and professionalism in recruitment marketing and talent management. The program evolves each year to stay up to date on the changing dynamics of the industry, continuously reviewing and adapting their award categories to recognise innovation, creativity and effectiveness achieved through best practices.
In selecting the winner of the Graduate Initiative category, judges evaluated agencies on large campaigns that include brochures, on-campus initiatives, DVDs and/or a range of marketing materials, as well as each agency’s ability to engage with their audience. AIA Worldwide was chosen as the winner of the Graduate Initiative Award, highlighting its ability to successfully use WhatsApp and Snapchat to truly engage and connect with the campus audience.

What they give us in return is the scope, freedom and encouragement to make it happen.”
