M&T Resources recognised as Australia’s Best National Recruitment Firm

At a black tie event in Sydney, M&T Resources emerged the biggest victor for the night by winning two prestigious Recruitment International Awards for “National Recruitment Firm of the Year” and “Training & Development Initiative of the Year”. In addition, M&T Resources was finalists in five other categories – the most nominations for any firm on the night.

Organised by Recruitment International, the RI Awards are contested all over the world including in the UK, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong and China.

Key to winning the National Recruitment Firm of the Year award was M&T Resources’ demonstration of how it operated a highly successful business model consistently across locations, driven by a unifying core Purpose.  M&T Resources detailed how its Purpose creates an autonomous culture that empowers people and guides its growth strategy which has brought it financial success.

“This is a global industry forum and it was, again, a pleasure to accept this international recognition on behalf of everyone who works for M&T Resources. Both of these awards are a true testament of the hard work and commitment that our staff work to every day.” – Chris Sandham, Managing Director of M&T Resources


For the Training & Development Initiative of the Year award, M&T Resources detailed the implementation of the M&T Academy, a unique initiative to develop the skills of all M&Ters across Australia using a two-pronged approach.

“The idea was to have a first wave where we empower Leaders within M&T Resources with leadership and coaching skills, who then act as mentors to all other M&Ters as they undertake a set of intensive training sessions.” – Kate Barrand, National Operations Manager, M&T Resources


M&T Resources was finalists in these categories:

  • Specialist Recruitment Firm of the Year
  • Recruitment Brand of the Year
  • Digital Recruitment Initiative of the Year
  • Financial Excellence Awards
  • Best Recruitment Company to Work For (Medium)

These awards further add to M&T Resources track record at Recruitment International where it was previously recognised for Recruitment Growth, Employer Brand of the Year and L&D Program of the Year awards in 2014.
