The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) works with a number of organisations, including government and charities, to deliver common goals and engage with the wider community. We also work with a number of business partners who support our members in the day-to-day running of their businesses.

The private recruitment industry and Jobcentre Plus both share the common goal of getting people into work. In November 2012 the REC, as the professional body for the recruitment industry, and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) signed a partnership agreement to work together on getting people into work.

The REC has teamed up with UK charity KidsOut, bringing fun and happiness into the lives of disadvantaged children and young people, as our current partner charity.
KidsOut provides practical help and support all over the UK, bringing fun and happiness into the lives of children who otherwise wouldn’t have much to be happy about. The charity’s mission is based on the belief that every child has a right to fun and happiness in their lives, whatever the circumstances they find themselves in.
The REC has pledged to raise £40,000 for KidsOut to carry out its work and hopes to engage the rest of the recruitment industry at the same time. Supporting a charity that helps disadvantaged children to broaden their horizons is an investment in the future of our workforce and our next generation.
