Kevin Green joins BPS World as non-executive director

We’re delighted to announce that Kevin Green, the departing CEO of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), will be joining the BPS World family as a non-executive director on 1st April 2018.

Kevin was Chief Executive of REC for 10 years, having previously spent five 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:

“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 their 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.”

We enjoy long-established close links with the REC.

In 2015 our CEO Simon Conington was elected to sit on the REC council (governing body) as a Corporate Director.

We were also the first company in the recruitment sector to offer a recruitment apprenticeship programme, the NVQ (National Vocation Qualification), developed in partnership with the REC.

In welcoming Kevin Green to his new role, Simon 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.”

We’d like to extend a warm welcome to Kevin ahead of taking on his new role.
