Dealing with an REC Member?
Membership of the REC means you are dealing with an agency that is...
Serious about Standards - REC members sign up to the REC's Code of Professional Practice that provides a set of quality assurances for employers and jobseekers alike. Members with REC Audited status have been independently confirmed as fully compliant with industry regulations and best practice.
See more information and download the complete Code of Professional Practice.
Serious about operating ethically - REC members pledge to comply with all relevant legislation, have fair and honest terms of business, actively promote diversity and equal opportunities and respect confidentiality.
Serious about being well informed - REC membership means that recruitment agencies are kept up to date with legislative changes and industry best practice to ensure they can act in the best interests of clients and jobseekers.
Serious about accountability - Should you feel that any REC member does not uphold these standards, you have recourse through the REC complaints and disciplinary procedures which can lead to their expulsion and referral to the DTI for criminal investigation.
A hard copy of the REC Complaints and Disciplinary Procedure is available from REC at Dorset House, First Floor, 27-45 Stamford Street, London, SE1 9NT.
