Two new directors officially joined the Board of the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) at the organisation’s Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 22 June.
We are delighted to announce that our very own Laura Clark, Managing Director of OA, was one of those elected to the Board by fellow members of the REC, as well as Sharon Seville, Director of First Executive recruitment.
“Both have extensive experience in the recruitment industry and will bring new perspectives and fresh ideas to the organisation’s Board.” (REC.UK).
Sarah Thewlis, Chair of the REC, and Managing Director at Thewlis Graham Associates, said:
“I am pleased to welcome Laura and Sharon to the REC Board. Their experience and insight from across the recruitment sector will be an asset to the Board. I look forward to working closely with them as we continue to ensure that the REC makes a positive impact for all stakeholders, including members, staff, partners, and the wider business community.
“I would also like to thank all the nominees who put themselves forward – it was a strong field of contenders.”
Laura Clark, Managing Director of The OA Group, said:
“I am looking forward to joining the REC Board, as my ambition is to positively impact the recruitment industry. I feel that by driving standards up, questioning everything and always looking forward to the future market, we can make a difference to our part of the economy.
“I believe in the power of diversity and voice, and I would like to be someone who holds a place on the REC Board to enable more role models with my background to have the confidence to step forward in the recruitment world.”
