"There was a lot of areas I couldn’t have prepared for by myself such as how to work with temp workers, and the laws required in good recruitment practice. Being a member provided so many essential documents and templates that covered many legal requirements, and I would have struggled to start up without them! "

"The REC's start-up course was well delivered and engaging, pace was perfect, and (lecturer) was fun and knowledgeable. I really enjoyed the 2-days of training, and despite the current Covid-19 lockdown, having my training via zoom technologies was fantastic."
