About RECex


At RECex, we look closely at recruiting excellence wherever it occurs, behind the scenes with recruiters, and from the perspective of jobseekers themselves.


Through uniquely intense and personal storytelling, our speakers explain how recruiting excellence can be achieved, and how to delight candidates, employers and recruiters alike.


In a marketplace where opinions are often diplomatically suppressed, we actively encourage the expression of views and perspectives which challenge established norms.


Filmed in front of a live theatre audience of 150 recruitment professionals, RECex gives a platform to those organisations who truly excel in delivering outstanding recruiting solutions for themselves, their candidates and for their clients.

Drawn from the most recent Winners and prominent Finalists in the National Online Recruitment Awards, our 10 speakers will deliver a unique insight to how they achieved this, and how they view the road ahead for the coming year. Active at the cutting edge of today’s industry, our speakers from the UK’s top employers, recruitment firms and online recruiting platforms will deliver passionate and intense, 15 minute talks in a format partly inspired by TED Talks. The diverse nature of the speakers reflects that of the audience, and that we can all learn an immense amount from acclaimed recruitment professionals.

Tickets for our inaugural RECex event will be limited, and made available at a discounted rate to organisations which are Members of the NORA Academy.

Leicester Square Theatre

The Leicester Square Theatre, with it’s curved stage and auditorium is perfect for our event. Creating an intimate environment for our speakers and audience.

All RECex talks will be filmed in front of a live theatre audience and, once edited, published here on the NORA Academy website. Over time, we plan to build a significant library of our best RECex speakers.

As filming of the event is so integral, we have partnered with Working Films and Nick Price to produce very high quality videos of each of our 10 speakers on the day. You may have seen his series of Career Life Stories videos recently, which featured Bill Boorman, Matt Jeffery, and Gareth Jones.


This event is for you, if you need to know about the experiences and insight of the most successful recruiters in the UK. Unlike many on the usual conference speaking circuit, our talks will be delivered by experts with direct hands-on expertise at the cutting edge of today’s recruitment market.

The diversity of our speakers will be reflected in the diversity of our audience. If you are an in-house recruiter, HR professional, agency recruiter / owner, or job advertising platform, this is a fantastic opportunity to see behind the scenes, and gain invaluable insight to what makes for outstanding excellence in recruitment practices.
