The cHeRries Awards

Well, we have an office full of laughter, giggles….and some much-needed fast food, today!

It can only mean one thing – last night we were at The cHeRries Awards, celebrating excellence in HR, Training & Recruitment across the North-East! And what a fab time we had!

The awards, organised by our very own cushydoos team, were held in the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, and attended by over 600 of the region’s leading business professionals.

This year, the event was hosted by Canadian comedian, Mock the Week and Live at the Apollo regular, Stewart Francis who entertained guests throughout the evening with his sharp and quick-witted jokes. Later in the evening, guests were treated to music from popular Aberdeen band, 5th Avenue and the sparkly new dance floor was filled until the event finished at 1am!

For all of you who were there, we hope you had a brilliant time, and a huge congratulations again to all our fantastic winners!:
