Rec launches agency commission

Published: Friday, 29 August 2008   Category: Sales and marketing

Those graduates looking for careers and jobs in recruitment could be interested to hear that the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (Rec) has launched its Agency Work Commission yesterday (August 28th).

It is acting ahead of next month's second reading of the controversial EU Agency Workers Directive (AWD).

The commission comprises of recruitment specialists and business and employment law experts and aims to make practical recommendations to the government on how the EU rules can be implemented.

Kevin Green, the Rec's chief executive, said it is the time to focus on how the proposals can meet the needs of employers who value a continuing flexible labour market.

"We have a crucial part to play in influencing the progress of the AWD in its future phases. This we can only do by giving providers and users of temporary staff a chance to weigh up the options and give direct feedback to government," he added.

The Rec is a trade body that represents the recruitment industry.
