REC announces 'Future of Jobs commission'

Just as UK businesses are considering the implications of the general election result, the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) announce their ‘Future of Jobs Commission’, sponsored by Brookson Group.

A strategic review to help recruiters and employers prepare for emerging labour market challenges, the ‘Future of Jobs Commission’ will be chaired by former employment minister and current Member of Parliament for Tatton, The Rt Hon Esther McVey MP.

The Commission also brings together leading employers, academics and labour market experts, including the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA), Nesta, Adecco and Tech City UK.   

Tasked with outlining a vision for the UK labour market, the Commission will explore both existing and emerging challenges, and detail opportunities and practical recommendations for employers and the recruitment industry. It will also aim to offer new insight to the UK government about the impact of demographic and technological changes on the job market and inform policy responses.

The Commission is due to publish findings in October of this year.

Further details and a list of The Commission’s members can be found on The REC website
