Another new client, and the finals of the BFFF People awards

Resonate Search and Selection – February 2018 Blog


We Helped BFFF Recognise The Best Talent In The Frozen Industry

Our founding partner, Alison Cannon, was delighted to be invited on to the judging panel for the first ever ‘People Awards’ by the British Frozen Food Federation (BFFF). The ‘People Awards’ have been set up to recognise and celebrate the contribution of the best and brightest stars in the frozen industry.

Having placed John Hyman into the role of Chief Executive at BFFF at the end of 2016, it’s an organisation that we have a great affinity with, here at Resonate Search and Selection. The ‘People Awards’ is another demonstration of the commitment BFFF have to progressing the frozen industry and to support and offer recognition to the talent who contribute.

It was a superb event, held at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole Hotel and included an evening reception and awards dinner. For details about the ‘People Awards’, the different categories and this years winners, you can visit the BFFF website by

"Resonate conducted a search for BFFF after their own extensive efforts had failed to find a credible shortlist. They delivered a quality shortlist with 3 appointable candidates being found. Throughout the process Resonate kept us well informed and consulted effectively at every stage. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services or using them again".
