“Recruitment agencies are crucial partners for us. Temporary work has a vital role to play in restoring confidence to people who have been out of work, and help them develop their communication skills.”
Jim Knight, Employment Minister, June 2009
REC working with jobcentre plus
The private recruitment industry and Jobcentre Plus both share the common goal of getting people into work. For agencies, advertising vacancies through Jobcentre Plus is an affordable and convenient way to source potential candidates from the local community. Recruitment Consultancies can offer career coaching, market intelligence and in-depth specialist knowledge of their sectors. They can tap into the vacancies of hirers who do not advertise via Jobcentre Plus as well as proactively promote jobseekers to hirers who they have an established relationship with.
