Well what a year it’s been for Elkie Holland, Managing Director and founder of Prospectus IT Recruitment.  So far this year she has been a Finalist for three separate Awards:

  • The Vitalise Business Woman of the Year 2013
  • The Sussex Woman of the Year Awards 2013 in the category of "Success Story"
  • The NORAs (National Online Recruitment Awards) in the category of Best Small Agency.


We are extremely pleased and proud to announce that Elkie was a WINNER at the Sussex Woman of the Year Awards 2013 in the category of "Success Story".

The award ceremony took place at the Hilton Avisford Park Hotel in Arundel on 22nd November.  The ‘Success Story’ category is for someone who deserves an award for their outstanding achievement.  (For those of you wondering why Elkie was nominated for a Sussex based award, this is because she also owns a property in the area and splits her time working and living between Sussex and Surrey).

Sadly Elkie wasn’t the overall winner in the Vitalise 2013 Business Woman of the Year, but she was delighted to have been chosen as a Finalist as the organisers classed all Finalists of this Award as Ambassadors to help encourage women to achieve.

Elkie is now an Ambassador for the WMG Academy for Young Engineers, sponsored by the University of Warwick.  They open their doors in September 2014 for 14 and 16 year olds, and are holding a Taster Event on Saturday 23rd November 2013 at the International Digital Laboratory, University of Warwick.

The Finalists nominated for this award which took place at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel on 11th October were:

  • Melanie Bryan, OBE, DL, Deputy Lieutenant for Greater Manchester;
  • Lee Thomas, Director of Aesthetics Events Ltd
  • Caroline Coates, Executive Partner, Birmingham DWF
  • Helen Wigglesworth, Co-owner and Group Financial Director of Quadralene
  • Judi Leavor, HR Director at Center Parks
  • Elkie Holland, MD & Founder of Prospectus IT Recruitment

The Winner announced was Julie Kenny, Chairman and CEO of Pyronix one of the leading electronic security manufacturers in the UK.

The event speaker for the evening was Dame Kelly Holmes and the judges included Lord Digby Jones.

The Final event that Prospectus and Elkie were nominated for was the National Online Recruitment Awards (NORA’s). 

2013 marked the 13th anniversary of the NORA’s and was the most hotly contested ever.  Nominations were received for a record 730 separate recruitment websites, so we were extremely proud to be selected as a finalist in the Best Small Agency category for the second year running.

Our thanks go to the hard work and creativity of the team at Volcanic who helped build and design our web site and joined us on the night of the award event.

The event took place at Sway Bar in London on 12th November.  Sadly Prospectus didn’t win (aaah), but we had a great evening partying with friends and colleagues and are looking forward to entering again next year.  We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Salt on winning the award for this category.


So as you can see, 2013 has been a fantastic year for Elkie and all at Prospectus.  May 2014 bring more nominations, award ceremonies and winners !
