Recruiters’ Forum

Where to Find Us

PRCA
82 Great Suffolk Street
London
SE1 0BE

The PRCA has launched a Recruiters’ Forum as part of its initiative to promote ethical practices throughout the UK PR & Communications industry.

Members of the forum will adhere to a set of best practice guidelines, and in doing so will demonstrate to broader industry that recruitment consultancies and in-house recruiters are reputable and responsible. Members of the forum display the ‘Accredited PRCA Forum Member’ logo to show this commitment to best practice.

The Recruiters’ Forum is chaired by Alexandra Lewington, Head of PR at Reuben Sinclair. It forms one of the PRCA sectoral groups and will naturally feed into the agenda of our HR Forum, FD Forum, Women in PR Group, LGBT+ Group and Diversity Group on matters surrounding the recruitment and retention of talent.

This page will be the reference point for anyone in the UK PR & Communications industry looking for a reputable and responsible recruitment consultant.

If you would like to join the Recruiters’ Forum, please email PRCA Membership & Partnerships Director steve.miller@prca.org.uk
