Standards in Recruitment recognised by TEAM
Standards in Recruitment (SiR), the UK’s first and only independent compliance and accreditation programme specifically for recruitment agencies in all sectors, is pleased to announce that it has been recognised by TEAM, the UK’s largest network of independently owned recruitment and employment businesses.
John Randall, engagement director for SiR said, “We are delighted to have been recognised by TEAM, as we are ideally placed to work with their members in validating their compliance credentials.”
Randall continues “Whilst trade association membership as evidence of compliance continues, the value of independent verification is becoming increasingly recognised. Quite simply, there cannot be a better validation than an independent one. At the same time evidence of compliance is becoming ever more important across the hiring spectrum.”
Jackie Torr, managing director of TEAM said, “We are delighted to confirm Standards in Recruitment has been accepted as a TEAM Service Provider and are proud that it joins many leading names, providing up to the minute innovations, some that have been exclusively designed for TEAM members.
Randall continued, “2017 has been a significant year in the development for our independent compliance and accreditation programme. In August, SiR accreditation was formally recognised by the Crown Commercial Service as a certificated standard in their draft commercial framework agreement for the provision of supply teachers for the public education sector. Earlier in June, the National Association of Headteachers recognised SiR’s teacher agency standards in their guide working with teacher supply and recruitment agencies. It’s exciting to add TEAM to that list.”
Randall concludes, “With an accreditation ‘flag’ to fly, the SiR mark of excellence sets a recruitment business apart from its competitors, an important factor in an increasingly competitive marketplace”.
