REC & APSCo Codes of Practice

The Recruitment and Employment Confederation ( REC) is the recognised Recruitment Industry body and provides a Code of Practice and Ethics along with many very useful services for Employers, Agencies and Candidates.

The REC Code of Professional Practice has been created in consultation with members and industry stakeholders to ensure that all members of the REC conduct their businesses ethically and to the highest standards and to promote good practice within REC membership. E-Resourcing is a REC corporate member and is bound by this code of practice. REC Code of Professional Practice.

Additionally REC has introduced a Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct

The Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) is the membership body dedicated to representing excellence in the professional recruitment industry.

With offices in the UK, Germany, Singapore and Australia, it provides members with the information, intelligence, ideas, opportunities and support they require to become compliant, efficient and successful.

Since its founding in 1999 it has grown rapidly to become the authoritative, trusted and innovative voice for the professional recruitment sector, representing organisations and trusted partners from sole proprietors and boutiques to international blue-chips.

The APSCo badge is recognised by candidates and employers as the differentiating quality mark in professional talent acquisition.

To maintain APSCo’s reputation as a trusted badge of quality, all members pass an external quality check with end clients and candidates. Our members are committed to strict Codes of Conduct that demand high levels of professional behaviour at all times. APSCo Code of Ethics
