Prestigious award win shines light on IT Recruitment Consultancy, Lucid Support Services

IT recruitment consultancy and project delivery specialists, Lucid Support Services has been named the ‘Best IT/Technology Recruitment Agency in 2021’, by the Recruiter Awards.
Lucid Support Services, based in Milton Keynes were first-time awards entrants, yet scooped the award despite going up against some large, well-known agencies.
The awards, hosted by DeeDee Doke, Recruiter magazine’s editor and comedian Joel Dommett on Thursday 23rd September at the JW Marriot Grosvenor Hotel in London, were decided by a judging panel of thirty-three industry experts and entrants were rigorously vetted on innovation, best practice, and financial soundness.
Lucid Support Services celebrate their 20th year in 2022 and have established themselves as a provider of temporary and contractor recruitment, through to full project delivery including the recruitment of teams and flexible project services.

They offer fast, reliable, and cost-effective partnerships to IT clients; support clients in bidding and winning business; provide up-to-date marketplace insight and evaluations and set up and maintain a ‘virtual bench’ of pre-selected IT consultants and engineers for their clients to select from based on demand.
Judges were impressed by Lucid’s innovative approach in the market space and were inspired by their depth of knowledge and expertise.
The judges’ commented on Lucid’s win: “The exceptional case studies from this entrant really stood out for the judges – and very effectively showed us how recruitment service can be a real game changer and value driver for the client – particularly when, as this entrant showed us, the service is embedded and not transactional. Excellent and very impressive examples of real innovation in the provision as well”.
Lucid’s Managing Director, Alun Jones said: “I’m extremely proud to win a prestigious industry award amongst such high-quality competition.
