Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) provide recruitment businesses with a wide range of training, legal, business and accreditation services.
Stretching back almost a century, the REC has a long record of championing the power of jobs to transform people's lives. Following the 'great depression', placing workers into employment became not just a government priority, but a UK necessity. After embryonic growth, by 1930 market, legislative and economic factors led a group of like-minded, dedicated employment agencies to come together and form the first recognised recruitment industry trade body, LEAF - the London Employment Agencies Federation. This is the REC's heritage.
2009 saw the REC launch the Institute of Recruitment Professionals. The IRP provides qualifications and a career pathway to individual recruitment consultants and its members have to abide by a code of ethics.
The REC has developed greatly over the years and is truly a great place to work. Everyone has a real sense of family and they all support and look out for each other. Staff have a true passion for their jobs and truly believe they can make a difference which has a very large positive impact on the outputs of individuals and how they work with each other along with external stakeholders.
