REC Research

The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) aims to provide high quality research on jobs, recruitment and best practice which is useful to recruiters, the business community, policy makers and the media.

The REC is a research-led organisation which champions the positive impact of the recruitment industry on the UK labour market and helps recruiters run their businesses more effectively. Publications include monthly tracking surveys of recruitment activity and employers’ future hiring intentions, annual reports on the value of the UK recruitment industry and individual reports on important topics related to recruitment and employment.

The REC conducts research independently and in partnership with leading market research firms, business organisations and think tanks. Our research is free to REC members and designed to be relevant, accessible and easy to use.
