Only the REC gives Recruitment Business’s the mark of quality which tells you our clients, that we strive to deliver the right people every time and that we really care about what we do and have an unmatched level of professionalism. The REC set the standard and champion good recruitment.
When Recruit Mint Education joined the REC we signed up to the Code of Professional Practice (REC Code), which requires basic statutory compliance as well as higher ethical standards. 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, to the highest standards and promote good practice. It is binding on all corporate members. 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.
