AIA Worldwide Receives TARGETjobs Award for Best Student Marketing Campaign

Agency Recognised by Largest Graduate Recruitment Awards Programme in Europe

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Apr 20, 2015) - AIA Worldwide, the EMEA headquarters of TMP Worldwide Advertising & Communications, LLC, a global innovator in talent acquisition, today announced that it and client Accenture have been recognised by the TARGETjobs National Graduate Recruitment Awards 2015 for the Best Student Marketing Campaign.

As companies increasingly rely on the best and brightest talent emerging from colleges and universities to meet business needs, an effective graduate recruitment strategy is essential to achieving success. The TARGETjobs Awards programme recognises those employers that have achieved excellence in implementing the strategies that help them attract graduate-level talent. The largest graduate recruitment awards in Europe, the TARGETjobs Awards are voted on by students, with more than 100,000 students participating in selecting the winners for this year's awards.

During the awards ceremony, held on 1 April, 2015 at London's Grosvenor House Hotel, Accenture was honoured for its work with AIA Worldwide, receiving the Best Student Marketing Campaign Award, for organisations recruiting more than 50 graduates per year. The award highlights the agency's ability to develop integrated, robust and cutting-edge campaigns that help employers stand out from the competition and attract the best graduate talent to their companies.

"AIA Worldwide works with a number of fantastic clients to create highly effective graduate recruitment strategies that connect, engage and help to hire the most promising student candidates," said Terry Lawes, head of Client Partnerships at AIA Worldwide. "We are proud to receive a TARGETjobs award and be recognised for our efforts in developing student marketing campaigns that work. What makes this honour even more special is that winners were selected by students themselves, further highlighting our ability to develop recruitment marketing materials that resonate with the newest entrants to the workforce."
