BRC are very proud to announce that we have passed the REC Compliance Test with a fantastic score of 98%.
The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) is the governing body for the recruitment industry and has introduced a compliance test to assess a business’s knowledge of the relevant industry legislation of the REC Code of Professional Practice. By doing this the REC can determine if new applicants for membership can become full REC members and whether existing REC members can renew and retain their membership.
The compliance test is made up of a series of questions that cover the key industry legislation and in particular the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003 and the REC Code of Professional Practice. When agencies join the REC they sign up to the REC Code which requires basic statutory compliance as well as higher ethical standards.
BRC Operations Director, Simon Copp said: “Working within sectors including Social Housing and care, it is essential that BRC exhibit exemplary recruitment standards and are completely conversant with industry legislation and compliance. We are delighted that having been members of the REC for over 10 years, and for the second time passing the compliance test, we can demonstrate to both our clients and candidates our commitment to REC Code of Professional Practice, and to ethical and professional recruitment.”
