The Recruitment Network strengthens global industry presence and service offering with acquisition of The Global Recruiter

The Recruitment Network (TRN) today announced that it has acquired the highly-respected recruitment industry stalwart The Global Recruiter. The move further strengthens the company’s position as a leading force in the recruitment industry and underscores its commitment to bring together the ultimate community of recruitment business leaders, suppliers and industry experts.

Widely known as TRN, The Recruitment Network provides recruitment business leaders and their teams access to peer-to-peer learning & support, industry leading strategies and best-in-class training and development. The Global Recruiter is publisher of the magazine of the same title and runs some of the industry’s most known and sought after awards. The new acquisition enables TRN to integrate The Global Recruiter’s suite of products and thought leadership, including awards, magazine, and CEO roundtables, into its existing infrastructure, further enhancing its ability to empower recruitment businesses and create the ultimate recruitment community.

James Osborne, Co-founder of TRN, said:

“This marks another significant milestone for TRN as we look to widen and deepen the support we give to our members. The Global Recruiter is a phenomenal publication and a recognised voice of the industry.  Our mission is to empower recruitment businesses to maximise their performance, productivity and profitability and this merger with The Global Recruiter gives us the opportunity to take things to the next level on that mission.”

“This creates numerous synergies and leverages our collective strengths to better serve TRN members and the industry as a whole, and this enables us to go into 2024 now with some real momentum behind that. It’s an exciting time, for sure!”

Established over twenty years ago, The Global Recruiter’s magazine and website have a loyal following amongst recruitment industry leaders. Its highly sought-after industry awards recognise outstanding achievements and innovations within the recruitment sector.

“We are absolutely delighted to now play our part in the growth and development of the magazine, which is a household name in the industry,” Osborne continued. “In addition to the highly successful CEO Roundtables they host, we’re also very excited to have the opportunity to strengthen the awards side of the business even further and ensure that it continues to elevate excellence in the industry and inspire and reward recruitment professionals for their commitment to exceptional service and commercial success.”

Gary King, Publisher of The Global Recruiter, said:

“I’ve known James, his co-founder Gordon Stoddart, and their great team at TRN for many years, and have a huge respect for what they have built as a community. I’ve seen first-hand the very measurable impact they make to their members. Coming together enables us both to do so much more with what we already have and make an even bigger impact to the industry.”
