Search Consultancy, one of the UK’s largest recruitment firms with 15 offices nationwide, has been shortlisted as a finalist for this year’s Scottish Business Insider Deals & Dealmakers Awards.  The event will be held at Glasgow’s Hilton Hotel on Wednesday 5th September, hosted by TV and radio's Fred Macaulay.

Attended by over 600 people, the annual awards celebration acknowledges and rewards excellence in corporate finance transactions

The leading recruitment agency has been shortlisted as a Finalist for the MBO/MBI/IBO/EBO of the Year accolade.  This follows Search’s private equity-backed MBO last year, which now brought the management team the backing of H2 Equity Partners to drive growth and build on Search’s strong market position.

Of the award nomination, Search’s CEO Grahame Caswell said:  “I’m delighted that we have been shortlisted for this award, the MBO was a result of a significant amount of hard work from the management team and our advisors. It’s fantastic to have that work recognised as we continue to build on our strong market position, and deepen and expand the range of services and specialisms we provide across the UK.”

Winners at the awards will be chosen in categories - Acquisition of the Year; Sale of the Year; MBO/MBI/IBO/EBO of the Year; Deal Transaction Support Award; Early Stage Risk Capital Deal of the Year and Legal Advisor of the Year by a judging panel chaired by John Anderson, head of SME engagement at Strathclyde Business School.

Finalists have already been selected in six categories, with the Dealmaker of The Year and Deal of The Year categories being announced on the night of the awards.
