Handshake teams up with RecFest and RL100 for a Summer of great events

March 2, 2022

At Handshake, we’re already getting our sunscreen, spending money and sleeping bags ready for the Summer festival season - announcing our support for RecFest, the inspiring and immersive festival event for everyone working in Talent Acquisition.

Now in its ninth year, RecFest is an event that broke the mold of beige conference rooms, shirts & ties, and tired regurgitated content. Instead, in Knebworth Park, RecFest offers a unique opportunity for more than 3,000 knowledge-hungry recruiters to network, connect and share best practice. And best of all, it boasts thrilling live entertainment, music and of course, its legendary afterparty!

As well as being a Brand Champion partner for RecFest, Handshake is also taking up the mantle of Mixed Summit Partner at RL100. The Resourcing Leaders 100 (RL100) is Europe’s leading peer network for senior in-house resourcing leaders. Committed to creating positive change in the world of resourcing, the RL100 aims to elevate the standard of resourcing at all levels and raise the profile of resourcing as a profession.

We believe that Handshake is a natural partner for the Recruitment Events Company, the force behind RecFest and RL100. We’re both on a mission to do things differently - breaking down structural imbalances and driving a fairer, more equitable and more inspiring recruitment landscape.

And the Recruitment Events Company agrees. Bobby Leanord, Managing Director, says,  “We're incredibly excited by this partnership with Handshake. This is a real opportunity to shake up the market. Not only will Handshake take on a prominent role at the Early Careers Zone this coming July 7th at RecFest, but they will also be working in close quarters with the RL100 to aid in providing market leading insight on all things future talent."
It’s an exciting road ahead - and together, we look forward to powering inspiring and immersive programmes designed to power a better way. For more information on RecFest and RL100 visit https://recfest.co.uk or https://recruitmentevents.co/rl100/.
