REC and The Recruitment Network working together to help businesses prosper

Industry body the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) have launched a partnership with leading service supplier The Recruitment Network (TRN). By working together, the REC and TRN aim to improve and expand the level of support and advice available to recruiters across the UK.

Recruiters who are interested in growing and improving their business can now benefit from:

  • products and services to improve performance, such as business leadership training and consultancy services
  • expertise in diagnostics, mentorship and strategic advisory services
  • 15% off TRN World and TRN Club membership fees
  • access to a range of peer to peer networking events throughout the year.

REC members will enjoy further discounts on all TRN services and products whilst members of TRN will in return gain access to unique member concessions and a wider suite of support services, such as legal advice, financial audit and training, delivered by the REC.

Neil Carberry, CEO of the REC said:

“Supporting recruiters as they build their business is at the heart of the REC mission. 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) said:

“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.
