REC response to Chancellor's announcement of support for jobs and business

Press releases

In response to the Chancellor’s announcements this evening, Chief Executive of the Recruitment & Employment Confederation Neil Carberry said:

“The Chancellor’s announcement is the big action the REC and many other business organisations has been working hard to achieve all week. The key thing now is to make sure the money can flow quickly and simply to the businesses that need it. Cash flow support, VAT deferment and wage payments are the exact radical measures that will help. The most important thing now is to implement these changes with great speed. Looking ahead, recruitment professionals have a pivotal role to play in helping people get jobs in sectors where they are most needed at this time such as healthcare, logistics and the food sector.”
