Being compliant in recruitment

We set the standard and champion good recruitment - making  great work happen

Only the REC gives you the mark of quality which tells your clients that you strive to deliver the right people every time, that you really care about what you do and have an unmatched level of professionalism. We set the standard and champion good recruitment.

When agencies join the REC they sign up to the Code of Professional Practice (REC Code), which requires basic statutory compliance as well as higher ethical standards. REC members must pass the REC’s Compliance Test on entry to the REC and then must pass again every two years to retain membership. If an agency uses the REC logo it means that they have passed the initial Compliance test and are required to adhere to the REC Code. The Code of Professional Practice can be found by clicking here.

To find out more about legislation covering the recruitment industry, please see our factsheet.  

We have developed a comprehensive range of products and services to help you ensure that you comply with the REC Code. One such product is our Audited scheme.
