What they said...

“The highlight of the summer for some of the UK team was attending RecFest, and the opportunity to catch-up and network with fellow TA folks from across the UK, in a relaxed, fun atmosphere.

Being inspired by an amazing lineup of speakers is an annual opportunity not to be missed but after the last few years of covid restrictions, the experience for the team to again share, learn, interact and chat in real life with friends and peers on all things TA was an important moment.”

Talent Acquisition Director @ Ubisoft

What they said...

“I jumped at the chance to get as many of the team together at RecFest as we could. There aren’t any other events like this where we can combine a learning experience for the team with a chance to get together in person after 2 long years!
Having attended some of the early RecFest events I know that the team will learn so much, get the chance to network with peers that they wouldn’t normally get the chance to meet and will also be looked after so well by the Recruiting Events Co team
We have been hiring heavily into our Recruiting team in the last 2 years and many of our team have never met face to face. The chance to attend something like RecFest and interact in person is so valuable to building a successful team!”

What they said...

“Team TUI will be returning bringing the global recruitment team together once again – not only as a thank you and excellent way to drive team engagement, but every single former attendee will genuinely say they all learned something, and as a team we walked away not only feeling engaged, but inspired with a plan for the year ahead”

Global Head of Talent Acquisition @ TUI

What they said...

“What a great day out with some of my team at RecFest this year – thank you so much to the RecFest crew. To be able to catch up with old friends from previous roles, meet people in person we’ve only known via online means and to talk shop with so many super knowledgeable, passionate and informed peers was a tonic for the soul. I will require a lot of convincing that any other “trade event” could be quite as fun! Beyond just the sheer volume of interesting and engaging subject matter, it was an excellent opportunity to spend some time with my fabulous team, relax and share an experience together. “
