And the winner is.........

Posted on 25/01/2011 by Emma Dadswell


We ran a website competition just before Christmas, and now everyone has settled back in after the New Year break we thought we would congratulate the winners on our blog!  The competition gave entrants the chance to win an iPad, an iPod Touch or iTunes vouchers.

We got a huge response from both candidates and clients – all wanting to win one of the prizes! Before we meet one of our winners, we want to say a big thanks to everyone that took part, and for those that didn’t win this time, keep an eye out for future competitions. Following the success of this one we will be running quarterly competitions– so watch this space!

We caught up with Susie Thompson of Random House, the winner of the iPad to find out how she was getting on with her new gadget.

The lucky winner!

Here’s what she had to say:

“What a fantastic early Christmas present – THE gift of 2010! I entered the competition for three reasons:

1.       To win the iPad (selfish reason) – I think I screamed when I read the email from David that I’d actually won!

2.       I have just started working in the publishing industry where e-books are now firmly embedded – and the iPad is a stylish e-reader that so many people rave about. So I wanted to understand all the hype for myself. I love using it and now know why they are in such demand!

3.       Handle is one of the very few recruitment consultancies who are truly professional, David and his team have their fingers on the pulse for the calibre of individuals we seek, always providing quality candidates. I’m very happy working with them so when I saw that they were doing a competition, I had no hesitation in entering, and I’m glad I did!”

One happy winner! We’d also like to say a big congrats to all our other winners: David Stimson, Kate Fitzpatrick, Jamie Vaide, Sophia Ticehurst, Carl Fernandes, Tim Samuel, Mark Kirby, Tim Connew, Laura Denton, Vicky Priest, Sophie Saunders and Chris Farrows.
