Leading Global Specialist Recruitment firm joins REC

Leading Global Specialist Recruitment firm joins REC

The REC says that Hays plc, the leading global specialist recruitment company, has joined its membership.

Hays employs around 8,870 staff operating from 393 offices in 27 countries across 17 specialisms. It is the market leader in the UK and Australia, one of the market leaders in Continental Europe and an industry leader globally.

In the financial year to the end of June 2008, Hays placed approximately 80,000 people into permanent jobs and found temporary assignments for another 300,000.

Commenting on Hays decision to join REC, Alistair Cox, Chief Executive said: At a time when many sectors in the UK economy are experiencing very challenging times and jobs are increasingly under threat, new government legislation is being introduced in a number of areas which in our view imposes further constraints and burdens on businesses at a time when they need help, not additional costs.

As one of the largest recruiting companies in the UK, we have a duty to speak out and present the facts. As a part of REC, the most influential lobbying voice for our industry, we can work to ensure that legislation is considered in the light of its economic impact and impact on jobs in the UK and is designed to encourage, not hinder investment in jobs and workforce flexibility.

Kevin Green, Chief Executive of REC, added: "We are delighted to welcome Hays plc into REC membership. As the UKs market leader, it is significant that they have chosen to join the REC so that the industry speaks with one powerful voice."
