TPP gains audited status
Charity specialist recruitment agency TPP Not for Profithas attained Audited status with the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC). Introduced earlier this year, REC Audited status is the & lsquo;gold standard’ of recruitment.
The agency, based in the City of London, was assessed against the requirements of the Employment Agencies Act, the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003 and the REC’s Code of Professional Practice.
This audit scheme run by the REC, the professional body for the UK’s £25 billion private recruitment industry, is the most comprehensive of its kind. It provides successful recruiters with an accreditation that is recognised by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), confirming that the agency is conducting its business both ethically and in accordance with the above requirements.
Established in 1996, TPP specialises in the placement of permanent and temporary staff in roles within not for profit organisations. The agency currently has 36 members of staff headed by CEO Jayne Morris.
Commenting on achieving REC Audited status, Morris said, “We are delighted to have achieved REC Audited status, and to be able to demonstrate our commitment to best practice and compliance with legislation to our clients and candidates. We know that, as not for profit organisations, recruitment represents a significant investment for our clients. As the only charity specialist recruiter currently REC Audited, this status will help signpost the superior service we offer and reassure our clients that they are getting value for money.”
REC chief executive, Kevin Green added, “Congratulations to TPP Not for Profit for achieving REC Audited status. In doing so they join an elite group of recruitment agencies across the UK that has achieved this high standard. “This accreditation recognises that we have rigorously audited TPP and found that it is performing to the highest professional standards and represents best practice in our sector.”
