The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) have launched a new business partnership with leading service supplier The Recruitment Network (TRN). The arrangement means the REC and TRN will be able to improve and expand the level of support and advice available to recruiters across the UK.
The innovative partnership will ensure that REC members benefit from discounts on access to TRN services, including market leading peer-to-peer networking and business leadership support. Firms working with The Recruitment Network who join up with the REC will benefit from a waived joining fee and access to the legal advice, insurance, training, compliance and business growth support that comes with membership of the UK’s biggest recruitment body.
“Supporting recruiters as they build their business is at the heart of the REC mission,” said Neil Carberry, CEO of the REC. “By working with The Recruitment Network, we can deepen the range of advice REC members get and offer more to TRN subscribers too. In 2020 recruiters can still expect the high-quality advice, guidance, training and advocacy they want from the REC – but this partnership enables us to do more for Britain’s world-leading recruitment and staffing industry.”
James Osborne, Chairman of The Recruitment Network (TRN) commented: “This is a fascinating time for recruitment and staffing businesses, and the opportunities for the industry today are unparalleled, in my experience. However, growing any organisation will always come with its challenges, twists and turns to navigate. This partnership with the REC creates a comprehensive and unique service offering that will ensure both REC and TRN members will be able to capitalise on the opportunities that lay ahead.”
The REC and TRN have been working together behind the scenes on the partnership for a number of months leading up this launch which includes the introduction of a brand new technology platform, TRNWorld (2.0), which will be made free to all REC members at the end of January and a new REC website later in the spring.
