REC launches Public Sector Client Lobbying Kit

REC launches Public Sector Client Lobbying Kit

The REC has launched a Public Sector Client Lobbying Kit for members fighting hard to develop and maintain relationships with public sector clients. This forms part of the REC’s ongoing Public Sector Resourcing campaign as well as the wider & lsquo;Client Kit’ which is designed to help recruiters in all sectors illustrate and quantify the added value they provide to employers.

The Public Sector Kit provides members with facts, figures and a series of key arguments on the benefits of using specialised recruiters despite the squeeze on costs. Specific documents include draft correspondence to public sector bodies, relevant snapshots of REC research and other data and a comprehensive briefing on the advantages of using a recruitment agency for the sourcing of both permanent and temporary staff. Also included is a draft & lsquo;crisis response letter’ which gives agencies valuable pointers in how to respond to a client cutting services or taking recruitment services in-house.

Commenting on the launch of the Kit, Ed McRandal, the REC’s Public Sector Policy Advisor, said:

“We understand the cost pressure that the public sector is under. However, the underlying message of our campaign has been to avoid knee-jerk cuts to the use of recruitment providers and to recognise agency work as an effective source of flexible staff within public bodies.

“Agency work is key to maintaining front line services and there are strong arguments for continuing to use specialised agencies. The aim of our Public Sector Client Kit is to provide individual agencies with the data and arguments they need to promote this message and to challenge pre-conceived ideas – particularly around in-house banks”.

“It is a difficult time for all those supplying into the public sector but we will continue to actively promote the value, service and expertise that our industry provides. The Client Kit forms an integral part of this campaign.”
