REC and the Recruitment Society make new joint offer to recruiters
The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) and the Recruitment Society will today announce a new agreement which will allow members of each organisation to benefit from attending events run by the other.
At a launch event at 100 Parliament Street in Westminster today the details of the collaborative deal will be spelled out to recruiters representing the REC’s over 3,000 corporate members and the Recruitment Society’s more than 8,000 pre-qualified members – professionals within the recruitment industry who include in-house, media, advertising, online, psychologists, agency support and payroll, and agency consultants.
Recruitment Society members will be granted REC member discounts for Scale Up Business Growth seminars and digital workshops and the REC’s annual Talent, Recruitment and Employment Conference in June. REC members will now be eligible to attend a series of six events planned by the Recruitment Society over the course of the rest of 2016.
The Recruitment Society has served the entire spectrum of the recruitment industry since 1979. During that time it has represented the interests of, and shared knowledge with, a broad church of recruitment professionals. The Recruitment Society had previously signed up to the REC’s Good Recruitment Campaign.
Explaining why the organisations had agreed to work more closely together, REC chief executive, Kevin Green, said, “Deepening the relationship between our two organisations will offer increased value to members through additional events and networking opportunities. Together we can promote professionalism, help members become more competitive and build the best recruitment industry in the world right here in the UK.”
Recruitment Society chair, Adrian Thomas, commented, "The Recruitment Society is delighted to be aligning with the Recruitment & Employment Confederation to co-promote both organisations range of events, meetings, talks, and conferences to the combined membership of both organisations and, indeed, the recruitment industry as a whole. This agreement allows both organisations greater reach into the industry and provides a clear platform for the promotion of best practices and industry leadership."
