The very happiest of New Years to you all!

We thought we’d start 2023 by fully celebrating 2022 – and what a year it was, full of progress, brand growth and awareness that our product and services are fast becoming a vital cornerstone of tech procurement within the UK (and increasingly the international) recruitment space. 

The numbers keep going up!

Our Comparison Service, Rectec Compare, had a record-breaking year, reaching customers in 26 countries – a testament to the increasing need for our market-leading procurement and shortlisting platform!

Comparisons made;

2021 = 53,816

2022 = 143,830

This represents a 167% increase on last year!

Requirements captured;

2021 = 8,688

2022 = 16,919

This represents a 95% increase on last year!

Leadership and governance. 

Towards the latter end of 2022, we proudly welcomed two new figures into our leadership team – our new CTO, Gavin Thomas; and our newest Advisor to the Board, Jeremy Ovenden. 

We know the future of Rectec is in good hands, and with these two stewards guiding the company 2023 is looking bright. 

An award-winning year!

2022 was also a year in which we broke the peer ceiling and found recognition amongst the great and the good in the recruitment and recruitment tech world.

We were over the moon to win ​​the Technical Innovation Award at the Onrec Awards 2022, plus we also received the “highly commended” medal in the Innovation of the Year category at this year’s British Recruitment Awards! 

To every voter and judge, thank you – it’s been an honour. 

More vendors!

Rectec is nothing without our incredible and growing ecosystem of technology and recruitment technology adjacent partners, and this year we added 25 new vendors into the Rectec Family.

Product Roadmap

Our product roadmap for 2023 is incredibly exciting! We’ve a number of superb new features on their way, alongside new initiatives to support the growth of our partners. 

We’re making it quicker and easier for companies looking for an Applicant Tracking System or a Recruitment Agency CRM to access our services and compare recruitment software, helping even more organisations to find the right recruiting platform for their business. 

As well as a whole host of updates to Rectec Compare, we’re also embedding our ecosystem of marketplace partners deeper into our product, which is set to produce positive results.


In 2022 we started our very own weekly newsletter, providing industry news, insights and fresh content to our subscribers. We produced 51 industry-related blogs and delivered over 200 news items and 21 weekly newsletters from our first issue in August!

The groundwork we laid in 2022 is the foundation of our success in 2023 – so to all of our partners, clients, friends and advocates, here’s to another great year!
