8th April 2021


The tenth International Recruiters Day will be held on Thursday 8th of April 2021. A day for celebration of recruiters the world over.

The Aim Of

International Recruiters Day

Is to promote community and fraternity amongst those at the recruiting coal-face in all countries of the world.


Every day, and on every continent of the planet, professional recruiters are working hard to ensure that you work well. We help to make everything work.

The simple task of every recruiter is to identify and bring together these three matching elements.

Jobseekers - Candidates - Applicants - Employees

Whatever title you use, the world of work is humming with human activity, and people move jobs more frequently than ever before. Whether employed, self-employed or somewhere in between, we all have the need to be productive and make our way in the world.

Employers - Corporations - Organisations

From the tiniest organisation to the very largest multinationals, in the public, private and non-profit sectors, brand new start-ups to centuries old established businesses, the very biggest challenge lies in assembling a group of individuals that together can become far greater than the sum of their parts, and jointly embody the purpose of your organisation.

Jobs - Posts - Careers - Vocations - Gigs

Mostly essential for simply paying our way in the world, the work that we do can also define who we are. When much of our waking hours are spent in activity that nourishes, challenges and fulfills us, we become greater today than we were yesterday. Not all work is rewarding, but we all seek the right balance that pays us not only in material terms, but also allows us to do so in an environment that we can endure, enjoy or even thrive in.

Whilst we are serious about what we do, we try not to take ourselves too seriously.
We have collated below, some of the best articles from all over the world on working as recruiters, and how we are an integral part of the world of work.
