STR Group, a leading name in the recruitment industry, is delighted to share the exciting news that Clive Hutchings, Executive Director and Founder of STR Group, has been invited to join the esteemed Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) Board.
The invitation is a testament to Clive’s outstanding contributions to the recruitment sector and his unwavering commitment to upholding the highest industry standards. As a member of the REC Board, Clive will have the opportunity to further influence and shape the future of the recruitment industry.

Clive has been working closely with the REC for some time, attending roundtable events, and providing industry knowledge and expertise on topics such as EDI and recruitment. Clive commented:
“I have been a supporter of the REC since my early days as a recruiter. I just love recruitment and I am all about giving people the opportunity to perform and create a life that gives them choices. There is a right way to do recruitment and I know that the REC really gets this.
I’ve been fortunate to work across many disciplines in the UK, as well as Europe, US, the Middle East, and Asia in permanent, contract RPO and search, mainly but not exclusively across STEM settings. With almost 30 years in recruitment from trainee to owner and director of STR Group, I know what that looks like for recruiter, candidate, and client. Driving high standards, good performance and excellent professionalism are important to me as I try to bring my working knowledge of recruitment to the REC. I’m looking forward to offering my perspective, to listen and support the goals of our members and the REC.”
The Board consists of external directors who are independent and do not serve as company executives at REC. They bring their unique expertise and independent views to ensure the REC is run effectively and efficiently on its members’ behalf.
Welcoming him to the Board, REC Chair Sarah Thewlis, Managing Director of Thewlis Graham Associates, said:
“I am delighted that Clive is joining the Board. He brings a wealth of experience to the Board that he has built up over many years and now leads a highly successful recruitment company. He is clearly committed to high professional standards and making a difference to the world of work and individual people. We very much look forward to his contribution.”
Neil Carberry, Chief Executive of REC, said:
“I am delighted to welcome Clive to the Board. He has been a longtime supporter of the REC, and brings an analytical and humane approach to his work that will be of huge benefit to our leadership team. Clive joins the REC Board at a pivotal time, as members adapt their businesses to the ending of the post-pandemic boom and significant developments in both labour and technology trends.”
