We are delighted to share that Impel Talent is a 2022 finalist in the London & The East of England in the Recruitment StartUp category at the StartUp Awards National Series.

The StartUp Awards National Series recognises the booming startup scene across the UK which has accelerated since the pandemic began. In 2020, when most of the world was shutting down, more than 770,000 startups were set up in Britain, with similar increases seen in other European countries.  This marked boost in newfound entrepreneurship, which is mirrored by a huge 2,500 applications which have been received in response to the Startup Awards National Series’ first ever call for entries.

Impel Talent’s Founder and Managing Director, Nathaniel Chapman said: “It is humbling to be recognised for the hard work the Impel Team has done over the last 3 years. Building a business during a pandemic is no easy feat and we have been successful due to the hours and effort from the people within the business, all working in unity towards our mission and vision. To be shortlisted in the recruitment category is a testament to the combined effort of our team members world wide and is just the beginning of what this group can accomplish together.”

Supported nationally by BT, EY, Dell & Intel, the programme will celebrate the achievements of the amazing individuals across the UK who have turned an idea into an opportunity and taken the risk to launch a new product or service. Co-founded by the team behind the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, the new series follows the success of the Wales StartUp Awards, after organisers recognised the exceptional potential in the startup scene across the other British regions.

Professor Dylan Jones-Evans OBE, the creator of the StartUp Awards National Series, said: “​​New firms are important for generating economic prosperity, employment opportunities and innovation. Since 2016, the Wales StartUp Awards have celebrated this amazing annual contribution to our economy by entrepreneurs and the impact they have on communities across the nation.

“Given the sheer volume of phenomenal startups we’ve heard from since then, as well as the huge post-pandemic shift in people’s desires to take their career in a new direction and set up a business against the odds, we felt it was the right time to take the programme nationwide. We’ve been blown away by the standard of entries in this first year and truly look forward to crowning the winners in June.”

Impel Talent is honoured to be a part of these prestigious awards and we can’t wait until the winners are announced in June.
