Rec People commenced trading in 2018, after 10 years of service as Rec Relief. So why change the name after all those years of building a successful brand and reputation?
Let’s go back in time…
Founder, Mandy Nolton identified a need for a mobile, flexible, skilled and experienced workforce in recreation and leisure within Local Government.
“The work we do and the workforce in place to deliver it is not static, it’s a constantly changing environment. We need to be responsive to that change.
“Unfortunately change doesn’t happen quickly enough in these work environments, so we created a solution.”
That solution was Rec Relief – a mobile temporary workforce of recreation and leisure professionals willing and able to walk in to any team and hit the ground running.
So why Rec People?
Whilst temporary staffing is still at the core of our business offerings, Rec Relief transitioned to Rec People and expanded its service offerings to provide permanent, temporary and project-based options for employment.
This, in conjunction with mentoring services, graduate programs and targeted recruitment, ensures the best new talent can get a head start and receive the support and guidance they need to be the best they can be.
Today, Rec People has built relationships with over 40 local councils in Victoria. We aim to make that 79 as well as providing service offerings across the country.
With our extensive experience in the leisure and recreation space specifically, advocating for our employees, understanding the culture of each local council, and providing fast, flexible options for the best talent, Rec People truly has changed the way leisure and recreation departments in local government hire, support and retain talent.
