Macstaff MD Anthony McCormack says he is delighted to be recognised by his peers and win TEAM Member of the Year for being ‘nice to do business with’ and ‘epitomising the ethos of TEAM’


Macstaff MD Anthony McCormack has been named as the TEAM (The Employment Agents Movement) Member of the Year 2019.

TEAM is a unique network of some of the best independent recruitment and employment businesses in the UK.

Members have an aggregate turnover of over £1.5billion with over 50,000 temps working every day and 3,500 employees. Membership covers 700 locations in the UK and worldwide.

Having been an active member for the last four years, Anthony was rewarded for being “nice to do business with” and for “epitomising the ethos of TEAM”.

With the TEAM National Networking Conference Day being cancelled because of the coronavirus, Anthony received the award on a virtual link via Zoom instead.


Feedback from members

In choosing who wins the award each year, TEAM say there is: ‘no science or criteria involved and it has nothing to do with the size of the business but, more often or not, boils down to someone being recognised as being nice to do business with’.

TEAM MD Jackie Torr said the award was fully deserved after hearing all of the feedback from fellow members.

“Macstaff has been an active Member of TEAM for the last 4 years and it is wonderful to hear such great comments about Anthony and his business”, said Jackie.

“Anthony has been very successful sharing business within the TEAM Network and epitomises the ethos of TEAM.”

Every year, TEAM members vote for their member of the Year, so to pick up an award voted for by his peers left Anthony overjoyed and feeling very grateful.

The award is like a ‘Players’ Player of the Year and that is why it is so special – Anthony McCormack

“I feel like I was already ‘winning’ just by being a member of TEAM, so this award is a total bonus,” added Anthony.

“TEAM is my recruitment community so this award means more to me because it is nominated by the members, who have humbled me with their feedback.

“This award is like a ‘Players Player of the Year’ and that is why it is so special.

“As TEAM said, there are no strict criteria to this award. It is just about being ‘nice to do business with’. I like being nice to do business with and am deliberate about this, so it’s great to be recognised for that.


Key business strategy

“I have enjoyed great relationships with TEAM Members across the UK, doing lots of TEAM Xchange splits on both candidate and client sides of the deal.

“Collaboration is a core value for myself and Macstaff and it is also a key business strategy as described in our Macstaff R2R service.

“We will continue to leverage best-in-class partnerships with recruitment agencies and membership organisations, to offer first-class service to clients and candidates over the long term.”

The award for 2019 was sponsored by TEAM’s principal legal firm JMW and was ‘virtually’ presented on a Zoom call by Paul Chamberlain.
