Recrutiment & Employment Confederation

We're calling on the government to:

Ensure that good work and flexibility go hand-in-hand

  • Protect two-way flexibility that benefits both workers and businesses
  • Unlock progression for almost a million people by broadening the Apprenticeship Levy to work for flexible staff

Harness brilliant recruitment to drive productivity and inclusive growth

  • Put people at the heart of the Industrial Strategy
  • Create a ‘Good Recruitment Taskforce’ to support better hiring by businesses

Create the environment for business to thrive

  • Only implement IR35 when the policy can be effectively delivered
  • Improve the enforcement of regulations with co-ordination between government bodies
  • Introduce a two-year temporary work route so that immigration policy works for business, workers and the economy
  • Use public procurement to drive standards

Take the lead on the future of jobs

  • Ensure that regulations keep pace with technological change to protect workers
  • Tap into the expertise of recruitment professionals to pre-empt disruption and facilitate career transitions
