Staffing 100 Europe | 2020

Geraldine King is CEO of the National Recruitment Federation, which establishes and maintains standards and codes of practice for the recruitment industry in Ireland. She has focused on expanding the NRF’s services and has introduced the accredited certificate in recruitment practice to the Irish recruitment industry — the only certificate for recruiters in Ireland. Believing the recruitment industry should be viewed as a profession and have a full academic career path, King has been instrumental in development of the world’s first undergraduate three-year degree apprenticeship programme for recruiters; in partnership with the National College of Ireland, it launched in September 2020.
