Gravitas Recruitment Group has secured the prestigious Princess Royal Training Award for the third consecutive year. This year’s recognition is centred around Gravitas’ Senior Consultant Development programme, including a rigorous evaluation process, an assessment visit to validate evidence, and interviews with participants who have first-hand experience of the programme’s impact.

City & Guilds’ prestigious HRH Princess Royal Training Awards recognises employers who display exceptional dedication and invest in training and development for their people. As skills shortages escalate, and job vacancies double across the United Kingdom and Ireland, the significance of engaging learning programmes, for cultivating and retaining talent, is a lot more pronounced.

Gravitas emerged as one of only 53 recipients throughout the UK, successfully awarded a Princess Royal Training Award in 2023. Notably, the company also stands as the sole recruitment agency to secure this award for three consecutive rounds of submissions, (spanning a total of nine years accreditation) showcasing its leadership in training and development within the recruitment realm. Gravitas’ dedication to nurturing talent and commitment to supporting professionals throughout their entire career journey is underscored and widely acknowledged through their 2017 & 2020 accreditations showcasing their entry-level training programme, and their latest 2023 award showcasing the Senior Consultant Development Programme.
