Neil and the team at the REC have elevated the way that the industry is seen by government with their skilful lobbying and engagement. Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, the REC has pulled together the leading recruiters in an organised way not seen before and created a body that the Government will actually listen to .

I chose to use the REC as it is an organisation that is universally recognised. Their knowledge is second to none when it comes to employment law. Knowing you have the legal support as well as access to a library of template documents is also very useful. The process from start to finish of becoming a member was very straight forward and I was supported every step of the way with any questions I had. I am proud to show the REC logo on my website.

The REC team provides an invaluable service to the UK by keeping the highest recruitment, talent and employment standards and goals front of mind to key decision makers and practitioners alike. They are more than a hub for best practice, learning and innovation. They are at the centre of the industry driving the dynamic conversations that count in so many tangible ways in real lives.

Our main focus when starting our business was to ensure that we get things right the first time and to hopefully minimise the risks and avoidable mistakes further down the line. Having the REC behind us gives us the reassurance and tools to ensure we are in the best possible position to achieve this.
