Steve Jeffers, HR Director at Meridian Business Support recently became an Institute of Recruitment Professionals (IRP), Regional Director in the North West. The IRP Regional Directors are made up of both IRP and REC corporate members. The directors work on a voluntary basis, raising the awareness of the IRP and improving standards within the industry. All regional directors have considerable experience and are perfectly placed to provide informal regional support, best practice information as well as networking events.
Kevin Green, chief executive of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) says:
"Our industry is very dynamic and is all about making personal connections. So in addition to the traditional methods of communication like email and mail-outs to our members we rely on our regional directors to make those personal connections with their colleagues and peers to help spread the word about the IRP. We’re really glad to welcome Steve to this new role in the North West and look forward to working closely with him to help promote the professionalism and quality in recruitment that the IRP stands for.”
Steve’s appointment as an IRP Regional Director reinforces Meridian’s commitment to raising standards within the industry and also underpins it’s commitment to the ongoing development of their employees both inside and outside of the business.
