Alium Partners, the UK’s leading independent interim management firm, has won the award for Best Recruitment Firm Website in Recruiter magazine’s prestigious annual industry awards.
Nick Robeson, CEO of Alium Partners, said: “We are delighted to win this award. Aliumpartners.com has been core to rapidly building our brand to our clients and interims since we launched a year ago following our MBO from Boyden Interim Management.”
Alium designed its website to be a key source of important and regular information for clients and interims, and to communicate the firm’s expertise and innovation in the industry. The site includes Alium’s news, opinions on industry trends, case studies of senior-level interims, and details on legislation.
Alium’s online innovations include web TV interviews and integration of the firm’s mobile site with an advertising campaign in the Financial Times. The FT’s readers are able to scan a barcode on Alium’s advertisements and connect to the firm’s mobile internet site.
Aliumpartners.com attracts around 3,500 visits a month and has received over 22,000 hits since its launch in April 2008.
Robeson added: "With the UK in the midst of recession, we expect an increasing number of organisations, from owner-managed SMEs, to private equity funds and their portfolio firms, through to big-cap companies and public sector organisations, to turn to highly experienced interim executives for a range of strategic change programmes. We have access to the very best interim talent to meet our clients’ immediate needs."
In the six months to September 2008, Alium’s revenue increased 60 per cent, year-on-year.
Alium partnered with Brand Attention to build, maintain and optimise Aliumpartners.com.
