Recruitment International's February Blog

For the first couple of days of this month we’ve been busy meeting people at the Recruitment Agency Expo in London. If we met you there, we hope we’ll be working with you more throughout 2017. If we weren’t fortunate enough to have a chat with you during those couple of days, or you weren’t at the Expo, why not get in contact to find out how you could get more involved with RI in 2017?

February marks the month of our first ever Supplier Awards! Voting is now closed and we’re compiling the top companies from each of the categories. The Awards lunch is taking place on 16th February at the Andaz Hotel in London. Suppliers – make sure you’ve booked your lunch tickets – you don’t want to miss out on finding out who the winners are! Lunch tickets are only £150 + VAT each, so why not bring your team along to celebrate the best suppliers in the industry? If you’ve got any questions about the Awards, or need help booking lunch tickets, contact Teri ( or Lauren (

Our cover stars this month are NumberMill. Also in the issue, we have our mobile recruitment technology Q&A, we tell you about the organisations your agency needs to gain accreditation from/become a member of and we review what President Trump’s plans are for the oil and gas sector. Make sure you have a read of all this and more in our February issue, which is out now!


The RI reader survey

At the end of 2016, we decided it was time to let you have your say on our products and services, so we launched our first reader survey! We know you’re busy, so we’ve made our survey short and sweet – 10 questions that can answered in less than five minutes. What more could you want from a survey? Well, it also gives you the chance to have your say on everything from our magazine and e-newsletters to our advertising and Top 500 Report. Why not help us improve our offering by completing the survey?


We want YOUR news!

Whether it’s a senior appointment, a new office in a new location or the company’s latest financial results, we want you to share your news with us! Our e-news goes out twice a week and we also share news daily on our website and social media channels, so you can be sure your story will get the exposure it deserves. If you’ve got a story you’d like to share, contact Rebecca ( or Becky (

Are you more into writing a blog than sharing press releases? Why not share your latest blog post with us instead? Our blog is the perfect opportunity to talk about what’s going on in your business or to share your top tips on running a recruitment agency and staff retention. Contact Becky to find out more.
