The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) is to convene a networking group for recruitment firms specialising in finance and legal services to help shape the professional body’s campaigning activity in these areas.
The new finance and legal sector group will meet for the first time on Wednesday 14 December at the REC’s offices in London to discuss challenges and trends affecting these fields. The agenda will include a presentation by Oliver Mangan, Chief Economist at Allied Irish Bank, on the potential ramifications of the UK’s decision to leave the EU.
Kate Shoesmith, REC Head of Policy says:
“The REC sector groups bring together recruiters with a common interest to share knowledge, hear from experts, network and help shape the REC’s policy responses to key issues affecting the industry. Ongoing political and economic uncertainty makes this the right time to provide specialist support for our members operating in finance and legal so they can make the most of the opportunities on offer and continue to thrive.”
Chris Croucher, Managing Director of AMC Insurance Appointments Ltd says:
“Brexit throws up a raft of issues for recruitment businesses operating in the financial and legal sectors which we are all still getting our heads around. The ongoing quest for diversity, corporate governance reform and the impact of technology on these sectors are also hot topics. I’m looking forward to tackling these issues through this sector group and helping to shape the REC’s influencing and campaigning priorities over the coming months”.
