"On various occasions we found the best person for the job and this wouldn’t have been possible without 4c’s knowledge and expertise, and their reach outside of Northern Ireland."

4c Executive Search was launched in 2013 and quickly established ourselves as the leading provider of true executive search services in Northern Ireland, Great Britain and further afield.

"I was impressed by the capability of 4c Executive to look outside Northern Ireland and as a result feel that I was presented with a much more comprehensive pool of candidates than had we looked only locally."

Gary Irvine Successfully Re-Elected as Corporate Director of the REC

Published on: 20 June 2016

Six members were elected to the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) council on Wednesday 15th June at the organisation’s Annual General Meeting (AGM).

The four non-executive directors elected to represent corporate members are:

  • Gary Irvine, Managing Director, 4c Executive Search (re-elected)
  • Aidan Anglin, Director, DP Connect Ltd
  • Kathleen Smith, Managing Director, Serocor Group
  • Allena Clarke, Operations Manager, Westray Recruitment Consultants

The two non-executive directors elected to represent Institute of Recruitment Professionals (IRP) members are:

  • Neeti Gupta, Managing Director, BD Consult (re-elected)
  • Mark Edwards, Operations Director, Matchtech

REC Chief Executive Kevin Green said:

“As the professional body for the industry in the UK the REC has achieved major success over the last year. In 2015 we helped more than 1,500 recruiters gain professional qualifications, we dealt with 42,000 queries via our contact centre, we hosted 39 sector meetings and webinars, and we published a multitude of guides and research designed to help recruiters do what they do best. Alongside this, during the last year we’ve launched Jobs transform lives, a new industry message which promotes the positive impact our members have on individuals, businesses and the economy.

“It’s also good news that the REC is financially strong so it can continue to support the industry. Since 2010 over £1 million has gone into reserves so that the REC has £1.6 million on its balance sheet, while also investing in improvements to member services. We are stewards of an important institution and we want the REC to thrive and fight for the industry for another 80 years and beyond.”

REC Chair Simon Noakes said:

“Our council is at the heart of these achievements and sets the strategic direction for our organisation on behalf of the industry. I’m delighted to welcome our new non-executive directors, all of whom bring the passion and experience needed to help us kick on and deliver even more value for REC members.”
