Our Awards


What a year!

Last year, Smart10 decided to take a year away from entering any business awards to focus on taking the company to the next level as well as, concentrating on the core team and most importantly our wonderful clients and candidates. This break was extremely beneficial, as Smart10 has come on leaps and bounds over the last 12 months.

We’re now back and you guessed it, our founder Claire Brindle has won another amazing award for ‘Most Inspiring Business Women’ in the Best Business Woman National Awards held at Tewinbury Farm. On the night we were also finalists in two other categories 'Best Business Woman in Recruitment' and 'Best Business',which is a fantastic achievement for the team here at Smart10.

Ever the team player, Claire has dedicated the award to the wider team stressing that the successes we have been recognised for is very much part of a collaborative team effort.

Never resting on laurels, the team have another exciting year ahead of them building on the foundations of 2018 to evolve Smart10 into the most forward facing, expert recruitment consultancy in Hertfordshire. 



Smart10 are proud to have received many accolades for our bespoke services. Not only has the firm won several prestigious awards for our unique approach to recruitment, we have also recently been made finalists at the Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards 2015!

We believe in going ABOVE AND BEYOND our clients and candidates expectations, and due to this forward thinking and dynamic approach we are happy to say that we have an exceptional candidate placement  success rate.
