The Scott & Co Legal Awards 2017 took place in the Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh last night. Three of our recruiters – Jackie MacGregor, Meena Bahanda and Sam Gardner – were all in attendance at the gala evening.

The event was hosted by Hardeep Singh Kohli and BBC News’ Catriona Shearer. There were also special guest performances from the Edinburgh City Pipe Band and the Edinburgh Dance Academy.

It’s one of the highlights in the Scottish legal calendar, and HR Consultancy were very honoured to be asked to attend. We had a fabulous night and were thrilled for all the nominees. (You can read the full list online here.)

The judging panel had a tough task to choose between the nominees. Here is a rundown of their final decisions.

Congratulations to all those who took home the prize, and those who made the shortlist from all at HR Consultancy.
