Women in Recruitment was formed to give all recruitment firms practical support in attracting, developing and retaining their female talent, as well as providing a tangible demonstration of a commitment to gender equality for clients and candidates. It gives individuals access to unique development tools, mentoring and networking opportunities designed to support successful and sustainable careers in recruitment. Company Membership is open to all UK recruitment firms. Individuals can join Women in Recruitment independently, or as employees of Company Members.
Women in Recruitment is an APSCo (Association of Professional Staffing Companies) initiative, supported by REC and other stakeholders across the recruitment sector and sponsored by Barclays plc and Squire Patton Boggs. Our overall goal is simple – to inform, advise and assist organisations in understanding the business opportunities associated with gender equality, and establish the recruitment profession as a brand of excellence in diversity and inclusion practices.
