Yesterday, the REC’s Industry Research Unit published ‘Hire Power, a guide to help employers in the public sector make informed choices when it comes to recruitment.

The launch coincided with the REC public sector summit that was designed to help recruiters build dynamic relationships with employers in both the public and the private sector.

'Hire Power' provides comprehensive and practical guidance to assist public sector employers bring about the changes they need to implement in order to succeed in the current repressive financial climate.

Advice contained within the guide will help organisations balance the need to keep the essential frontline services operating but at a reduced cost and with improved efficiency.

One of the key messages contained in Hire Power is the need for long-term public sector reform. The REC continues to stress that this can be best achieved through the use of freelancers, interim change managers and workforce flexibility.

Public Services Director, Andy Robling, from Hays Recruitment, has already reviewed the guide and he said it clearly highlights the vital role of recruitment agencies in delivering public sector reform. He also added that agencies will play a crucial role over the next few years in providing career transition support ex-public sector employees.

The REC is also to run an online service 'Ask the Expert' this coming Friday between noon and 3 pm.

The service is aimed at recruiters and the REC's business mentor team will be on hand to provide them with instant advice and guidance on recruitment related issues.

The REC said they are setting up this service to help recruiters learn how to drive their business forward. A lot of recruiters have said they lack inspiration and as a result their sales techniques are suffering.

Ask the Expert is free to all REC and IRP members.
