Creativepool wins Best Specialist Job Board at the National Online Recruitment Awards 2021

Published by

Creativepool has been named Best Specialist Job Board at the National Online Recruitment Awards 2021, in a night of celebrations at the Carisbrooke Hall in London.

Selected alongside other niche UK job boards, Creativepool was commended as the Best Specialist Job Board across all sectors, not just the creative industries.

The criteria for the win reflected all the key priorities that our platform has been tackling for our members and clients over the past 14 years. Creativepool was commended for:

  • Ease of use, design, layout & speed.
  • Volume of available vacancies.
  • Available facilities for jobseekers.
  • Prominence in targeted market.
  • How well the site is serving their audience at a time of global health crisis.


Nominated by jobseekers and judged by an esteemed panel of leaders in national recruitment, the National Online Recruitment Awards 2021 celebrated resilience and innovation following a global turmoil of over 18 months. With our job adverts now lasting 60 days by default and free job options for recruiters, Creativepool has worked tirelessly to assist the creative industries amidst the Covid-19 crisis.

Despite a rather challenging time for everyone in the recruitment game, the award follows nearly two years of continued commitment to quality and user experience, and is a testament to our interest in providing the best platform, opportunities and exposure to all job seekers and employers alike.

The award is the last in a long series of accolades collected by Creativepool over the years, including two more National Online Recruitment Awards, one Digital Impact Award and a Webby Award.

Michael Tomes, Founder of Creativepool, said: “Winning Best Specialist Job Board across all sectors is a fantastic achievement for the Creativepool team. It is a powerful testament to our commitment towards our clients and members, and to our involvement in supporting the creative industries in two of the strangest years in our entire history. It confirms that, no matter which part of the industry you are from, Creativepool is the best place to be. We cannot wait to show you what we have in store for the community in 2022.
