Tomorrow is the most critical day in public sector recruiting for three decades

Tomorrow is the most critical day in public sector recruiting for three decades
The RECs public sector summit tomorrow (Tuesday June 8) brings together the UKs leading thinkers and practitioners to debate ideas that will ensure the sector has the necessary talent, skills and workforce flexibility to improve services while reducing expenditure.
The highlight of the RECs public sector campaign, the summit is bringing private sector recruiters together with employer organisation representatives and HR professionals in order to explore the future of public sector resourcing over the next five years.
Kevin Green, the RECs Chief Executive, said: The Chancellors announcement on 6.2 billion of public expenditure cuts a fortnight ago acted as a catalyst in our view that the whole focus should be on long-term sustainable reform rather than short-term slash and burn cuts.
We maintain that public sector employers benefit greatly from having flexible staffing and the summit will again highlight our view that agency staff are a cost-effective solution because they do not carry the same add-on costs that permanent workers do.
Green added: This is a chance for recruitment professionals to learn more about how public sector and HR professionals view the future of employment in this sector at this difficult time and the parts all must play to reaching the best possible outcome.
Again I would stress that nobody in recruitment working with the public sector can afford to miss this summit because of the opportunities it provides for building dynamic and productive partnerships which will help shape the future of how both private and public sectors can work together.
Sir Peter Gershon, the Conservative Partys efficiency adviser is the keynote speaker at the conference. He will be joined by Dr David Halpern, the Institute of Governments Director of Research Jackie Orme, Chief Executive of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) Dean Shoesmith, President of the Public Sector People Managers Associations (PPMA) and David Frost, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC).
