Global resourcing specialists BPS World have announced that Kevin Green, the departing CEO of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), will be joining BPS as a non-executive director on 1 April 2018.
BPS is a global recruitment partner with clients spanning the Engineering, Technology, FinTech and Business and Professional sectors, which has long established close links with REC. In 2015 Simon Conington, the founder and MD of BPS, was elected to sit on the REC council (governing body) as a corporate director. BPS was also the first company in the recruitment sector to offer a recruitment apprenticeship programme and developed the NVQ (National Vocation Qualification) in partnership with the REC.
Kevin Green was chief executive of REC for 10 years, having previously spent 5 years as HR Director of Royal Mail letters. Prior to that he ran his own strategic HR consultancy Qtab ltd. He explained why he had accepted his new position with BPS: “I’m delighted to be joining an organisation as pioneering, innovative and global as BPS; I’ve long admired how ambitious and hard -working they are, and with world class team of people.
“I see my role as advising and helping Simon and his global leadership team achieve BPS’s full potential, leveraging my knowledge and experience to raise the profile of the BPS brand. I will also seek to help them further develop their already strong talent management offering so it provides even greater value to their ever-increasing client list.”
In welcoming Kevin Green to his new role, Simon Conington, who set up BPS in 2001, commented: “I’m delighted to welcome Kevin as a non-executive director of BPS. He is widely respected as an outstanding CEO of REC and has played a key role in changing the perceptions of the industry. He brings to BPS enormous amounts of experience that I know will be of huge benefit to BPS, our clients and our candidates.”
