The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) are the governing body that overlook all Employment Businesses and Agencies to ensure we are adhering to the correct codes of conduct and policies, as well as helping us better our practises for Clients and Candidates alike. We are already honoured to be a member but honestly, being one of the seven businesses chosen (out of 4,000!) to be inspected was a little daunting! Having the inspection was really important to us not only to vet our standards, but to understand where we can continue to improve.
For Testing Circle; being a member of REC is so important as it helps the people who deal with us on a daily basis, understand what they can expect from us. It is a set of benchmarks that we should continually strive to surpass and the set of core values that we should aim to echo. We are not just another Recruitment Agency - we take a consultative approach to all six arms of our business; after all...people don’t buy products, they buy solutions to their problems.
“The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) is the professional body dedicated to representing the interests of the UK’s £19.7 billion recruitment industry in Parliament, Whitehall, the European Commission and to press and opinion formers.
