Who we are

At the REC, we champion our members’ positive impact on people and their lives.

Recruiters have the power to create opportunities for success for individuals, businesses and the economy.

We get it like nobody else does and it makes our experience, insight and solutions the most influential. We lead the way in defining better recruitment standards and practice, and what is truly needed to build a world-class jobs market. Together we need to show that recruiters can make a real difference, that British business needs talent to win, and that the recruitment industry fuels the UK engine / job market to help drive business growth and prosperity.
