Finalists for National Technology Awards
Pickr are delighted to announce we’ve been shortlisted for not one, but two National Technology Awards!

We’ve been named as finalists in the Start-up Tech Company of the Year and the Construction Technology of the Year categories! These shortlists recognise the technology we’ve been developing to help match workers to the industrial businesses who need their skills.

The National Technology Awards are the most comprehensive celebration of technology in the year, organised by National Technology News. The awards celebrate the pioneers of new technology and help drive standards and encourage excellence.

The winners will be announced in May at a glitzy awards ceremony held in Mayfair’s London Marriott Hotel and hosted by comedian Lucy Porter. Other notable finalists across the categories include Vodafone, Sky and Lloyd’s Bank.

“We want to make it quicker, easier and cheaper for businesses to connect with the skilled workers they need to get the job done. The news of this double shortlist really validates what we’re trying to achieve here. Huge thank you and congratulations to the Dev team, this is a fantastic start and I’m excited to see what’s to come!” Kane Halsey, CEO, Pickr
