Recruitment consultants are uniquely placed as experts in the labour market. As a conduit between employers and jobseekers, helping employers attract the right talent and jobseekers find the right role, recruiters are the eyes and ears of the UK economy. A good recruitment consultant is an expert in their sector, upholds the highest professional and ethical standards, and is aware of trends as they emerge.
As the professional body for the recruitment industry, the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) is uniquely placed to advise both employers and jobseekers what they should be looking for in a recruiter.
The REC's experts also regularly speak to the media about employment and recruitment.
