Expressions Partnership


Training in the Recruitment Industry

The recruitment industry has been tarnished with a barrage of negative connotations over the years.

Many of these have been justified due to the poor practice and unprofessional tactics of some who claim to work in the profession.

One of the founders of the Expressions Partnership worked in I.T. Recruitment as the HR and Training Manager and witnessed some of these tactics first-hand.
Thankfully the growing opinion is more positively justified by a shift in professionalism and business ethics within those trusted recruitment agencies. 

Working with the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) in the UK Expressions delivers the REC Management Academy for anyone working within the recruitment sector who is either an established Manager or new to the role. This programme runs approximately 2 to 3 times per year in the UK and is supported by free phone coaching for those ‘as and when’ moments crop up.

“I would definitely recommend this course for anyone, no matter how long you have been in management there’s always time for improvement”.

Associate Director – Professional Technical

Our Managing Director frequently speaks at conferences for the recruitment industry including the annual REC Conference on subjects including "Overcoming Imposter Syndrome" to "Leading and Managing" in an emerging culture.  
Outside of working directly with the REC Expressions works with a number of recruitment organisations on specific subject areas.

This ranges from one-to-one coaching with a new-to-role MD to advanced sales. From overcoming psychological barriers to picking up the phone, to designing and delivering an annual Executive Leadership Development Programme for the largest group of independent recruitment companies in the UK and their international offices.

To date, Expressions has delivered this in-house programme to over 75 leaders with many of the original delegates now holding CEO and senior Manager roles within these independent organisations. 

The shift in opinion about recruitment consultants to trusted business advisers is still realising itself and as such Expressions continues to work with companies within this sector to help navigate this transition. 

“All encompassing programme for leaders truly engaging and interactive expertly delivered”.
