A BOLTON business is celebrating being nominated for a top award.

Recruitment firm Jobwise, which is based on Bridge Street, has been shortlisted for Employer of the Year at the Greater Manchester Business Awards.

The awards will be held at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester on February 9. The company is up against Equilibrium and Enterprise Holdings.

The awards celebrate the professionalism and excellence of businesses and organisations across Greater Manchester.

They are independently judged by a Panel of 10 business peers assigned to ensure a fair and open judging system. It consists of business leaders, directors and experts from a range of industries, size and scope to ensure that every award is considered on its merits

The panel will meet a few weeks prior to the evening to vote on the Winners from each Shortlisted category.

Lee Farghaly, from Jobwise, said he was delighted with the nomination and thanked all the staff at the company for their hard work.

He said: ‘This is a testimony to how important it is we look after our teams.

"Our vision is of a world where everybody loves their job. If our teams love their job, this in turn helps to provide an exceptional service to both our clients and candidates.

"As well as our Bolton branch, we have branches in Liverpool and Stockport covering the whole of the North West, and being nominated for this award can only add to our reputation of being the recruiter of choice across the region’.
