Neil Carberry appointed CEO of the REC

 

The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) has appointed Neil Carberry as its new chief executive. Neil will take up the role on 25 June 2018.

Neil joins the REC from the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) where he is currently managing director, leading the CBI’s work on the labour market, skills, energy and infrastructure.  He has also been integral to delivering a range of change programmes at the CBI, developing the service CBI offers to its members.

Commenting on Neil’s appointment, REC chair Chris Moore says: “It is important to us that our new CEO has a broad awareness of the regulations impacting our industry, a deep understanding of what success looks like in a membership organisation, a genuine passion for our sector, and an appetite for delivering operational excellence.

 “Neil impressed the selection panel with his wealth of relevant experience against these criteria, the clarity of his aspirations for the REC, and his natural alignment with our ambitions for the future. I am delighted that Neil will be joining us here at the REC and we all look forward to welcoming him into our organisation, and back into our industry.”

Commenting on his appointment, Neil said:  "It's incredibly exciting to have the chance to lead the REC through the next phase of its development as a voice for the recruitment industry and the fantastic people who work in it. 

"As someone who started their career in recruitment, I know the value the sector brings, and how important it is that our members can look to the REC for support.

"Technological innovation, changing demographics, the need to improve social mobility and Brexit will all have huge effects on our sector and the wider economy in the years to come, and I want members of REC and the IRP to be able to rely on a vigorous and renewed organisation that is always in their corner."
