We are so excited to announce that Instnt won its first award in the Swedish National Post and Telecom Agency’s innovation competition.

It has been an amazing start to the year and our London team traveled to Stockholm for the 14th annual event. The theme of the competition, was “A labor market for everyone”, organised in collaboration with the Swedish Public Employment Agency. We had the opportunity to present Instnt, network with the other winners of the competition and collect our wonderful shiny award of course.  

After the busy and exciting day of the event, our London and Stockholm teams came together to talk about what this award means for us and the future of Instnt.

Accessibility and inclusion in the workforce has always been one of the key driving forces behind Instnt and something we have always valued as a team.

The prize money will allow us to further develop the product and make Instnt the world’s simplest and most inclusive recruitment tool. Excited and full of ideas, we spent the afternoon brainstorming and building our accessibility roadmap for the year ahead (and celebrating with champagne of course).

The trip was a success and we left snowy Stockholm feeling motivated with boxes of Instnt leaflets we tried to sneak onto the flight with us despite having our luggage over the allowed weight limit (we may have overpacked) and headed back home to London ready to get things moving.  

We are feeling excited about the future of Instnt and growing our team, as we launch our blog we can’t wait to share what we have planned - we hope you follow us on our journey.
