Bullhorn secures new APSCo accreditation

Bullhorn, the global leader in online recruitment software, is the first recruitment industry supplier to gain full APSCo Recruitment Practice Standard (RPS) Level 1 accreditation. APSCo recently introduced the accreditation to raise the standards of UK recruiters, ensuring they meet an acceptable level of qualification and training.

Although the RPS was created with recruitment practitioners in mind, Bullhorn requested entry to the course in order to ensure it is meeting and exceeding the recruitment industry’s best practice standards.

Peter Linas, Bullhorn’s EMEA MD comments: “We are in full support of the APSCo accreditation. While it is vital that recruiters meet a defined criterion, it is equally important that suppliers to the industry have up-to-date knowledge and training.”

Mike Restivo, Bullhorn’s EMEA sales director continues: “Our group knowledge and understanding of the challenges a recruiter faces is critical to providing the exceptional service levels we strive to deliver. Every Bullhorn department from sales to account management to technical support passed the RPS. We anticipate a growing expectation for suppliers providing business-critical services to secure this level of accreditation.”

Following approval from APSCo, 20 staff at Bullhorn UK were taken through scenario-based training, culminating in a one hour exam which every team member passed.

“We have been extremely impressed with Bullhorn’s level of commitment to servicing the recruitment market”, says APSCo chief executive, Ann Swain. “The RPS accreditation was designed to promote excellence and competency. Bullhorn has demonstrated that its staff are more than capable of rising to the challenge. We have no doubt that by completing the training Bullhorn will be in the best position to accurately and appropriately service the needs of the country’s recruitment specialists.”

The RPS is a unique web-based assessment hub and examination centre for professional recruiters. It has three levels of assessment based on how long an employee has been working in recruitment with each assessment comprehensively covering the key areas of knowledge expected at that level.
