The Recruitment and Employment Confederation

As part of its commitment to highlighting excellence in the recruitment industry, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) has worked with the independent auditors SGS to develop a robust audit package that validates compliance with The Employment Agencies Act and Conduct Regulations 2003 as well as the REC Code of Good Recruitment Practice.

Welcomed by the BIS (Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, formerly known as the Department of Trade and Industry, DTI), REC Audited is the most comprehensive regulatory audit of its kind, demonstrating that agencies are committed to the highest possible standards. REC Audited offers assurance that agencies are conducting their business lawfully and ethically and will offer guidance if they are not.
