Welcome to The Rectec Digest – our weekly newsletter that shares best practice and hot-takes on Recruitment, HR and Talent Acquisition, as well as updates on how recruitment technology continues to revolutionise our industry.

Naturally, a lot of what we write about will be related to recruitment and tech, the shifting sands of recruitment culture and practice, and how tech is helping evolve our innovative industry into new and exciting places. After all, it’s what we know!

But we’re also going to be using our digest to point you in the direction of recruitment-lateral, thought-provoking pieces, opinions and stories – the stuff that in the heady day-to-day of connecting talent with business can get lost amongst the noise but we think contextualises and expands what makes our industry tick.

Finally, we’re going to be using The Rectec Digest to champion our vendors and marketplace partners – the enterprises (some of whom will be reading this!) who are at the vanguard of recruitment tech innovation.

A word from Rectec…
Welcome to our first Digest!  Getting a regular newsletter out to our amazing network of vendors, friends and industry leaders has been in the workings for months – I’m so glad to finally be in your inbox. Safe to say 2022 has been a bumper year at Rectec. We’re continuing to go from strength to strength, connecting with fantastic new vendors and we’ve also launched the Rectec Marketplace, which, if you haven’t heard yet, is evolving to revolutionise how employers and agencies connect with the right tech solution providers!

But, as we mentioned above, I want to use this Digest to connect with Rectec’s network, to remind us all of just how innovative and truly game-changing the UK (and global) recruitment technology market is. So enjoy the read and drop me a message if you want to see us share anything you feel our network would appreciate – my inbox is always open. Rob Green, Founder & Director, Rectec
