The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) has officially launched its new qualifications, which have been met with praise by Baroness Prosser.
Prosser is a recruitment expert, Labour peer and chair of the REC’s Youth Employment Taskforce. She called the qualifications “a major step forward for recruitment.
Recruiter.co.uk confirmed that the qualifications will include a diploma for experienced recruiters. It will encompass six basic modules; teaching recruiters everything from how to manage legislation and operational processes to building long-lasting business relationships.
Operating in an ethical manner will also be covered throughout the training.
This means that those who are dedicated to finding roles such as broadcast jobs and others for their candidates are offered the support they need to do their job as efficiently as possible.
Prosser wasn’t the only person to speak out regarding the newly-launched qualifications however, as Neil Smith, a recruitment industry insider and REC spokesperson, told Onrec.com how he felt.
Smith revealed: “We are excited to be launching these qualifications as we believe that not only do they better reflect the industry as it is today, but also help build capability for the future.
“The new comprehensive diploma will become an essential marker of professional excellence that clients and potential employers will look for.”
