tml Partners place interim Head of Digital at REC

Case Studies

The technology and consultancy sector recruiters at tml Partners have placed an interim Head of Digital on a six-month FTC at The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC)

The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) is a professional body representing the UK’s recruitment industry. It sets industry standards, offers training, and advocates for best practices. REC provides resources and guidance to recruitment agencies, fostering ethical and effective staffing solutions while serving as a voice for the sector in policy discussions and promoting workforce development.

The Challenge:

REC was looking to source a Head of Digital to support the organisation’s ambition to become a digitally-strong business. Working closely with the Head of Technology and leading the digital team, the right candidate is needed to drive the REC’s digital infrastructure and performance. The Interim Head of Digital would be responsible for creating and delivering improvements to member engagement and customer experience whilst driving key digital projects over the next 6 months.

The Outcome:

Khushi Patel, a recruitment consultant tml Partners specializing in the consultancy space, collaborated with their Marketing Director, Gemma Reyes, to understand what key skills would be needed to fill this role. Technical expertise, innovation and relationship management were at the top. As this was an urgent hire, Khushi worked promptly to identify a shortlist of candidates who had strong technical capabilities and were comfortable working in a leadership capacity.

Christopher Tolfree, the successful candidate, commented: “I originally reached out to tml Partners regarding a Marketing Ops role speaking to Niamh. Whilst she wasn’t working on suitable roles for me at the time, she introduced me to Khushi. Khushi quickly reached out to get a better idea of project work I have previously delivered and went beyond my CV to really understand my skills and found a role quickly that really suited my skills. I have really enjoyed my time at the REC and have been a great fit in bringing the digital team forward. I really got to flex my problem solving skills and drive digital transformation.

Khushi was extremely helpful throughout and was delighted about my extension rather than pushing me onto the next project.”
