REC turns to ex-employment minister to head commission

The Recruitment & Employment Confederation has turned to a former employment minister to lead its new ‘Future of Jobs’ commission.

‘Future of Jobs’ is a strategic review aimed at helping recruiters and employers prepare for emerging labour market challenges.

The new MP for Tatton and former employment minister Esther McVey (above) will chair the commission, which the REC revealed will outline a vision for the UK labour market, explore existing and emerging challenges, and detail opportunities for employers and the recruitment industry.

The commission will also provide government with new insight about the impact of demographic and technological changes on the jobs market, and inform policy responses ahead of publishing its findings this October.
