CNA signs its partners up to IOR
CNA is part of the UK's largest independent recruitment business, the Pertemps Network Group, and has been operating since 1995.
“One of the key reasons to join the IOR is to allow our network of partners to benefit from its leading personal development programmes,” says Gavin Chase, senior partner.
The IOR has three specialist routes to qualifications in HR, agency recruitment and corporate (in-house) recruitment. By providing a qualification that is recognised and regulated by OfQual, Britain's qualifications regulator, the IOR ensures its education offerings are world class and internationally recognised and accepted. IOR qualifications are delivered through its pioneering online delivery platform, StudyCourse.org.
Network Group was formed in 1979 and has a total turnover in excess of £680m per annum and a network of 26 offices across the UK and Europe. It is part of the Pertemps Group, which has more than 53 years of experience in recruitment and is one of the largest privately owned agencies in the UK.
Not only do CNA franchisees benefit from being part of the Pertemps “family,” now they will also benefit from the considerable offer from the IOR too.
This membership also allows CNA partners to access a brand-new take on split-fee work through the IOR’s new Split Fee Network, which launches in June as part of WorkProfile.org, the IOR's new social network.
Chase adds, “When you study with the IOR, regardless of what level you study at, your certificates and credits will be internationally recognised and this is a major step forward for the recruitment industry. There are many other benefits to CNA partners to being in the IOR and we plan to roll out these features out to them via regular updates.”
Azmat Mohammed, the IOR’s director general, says, "I am delighted to welcome the 28 businesses that make up CNA Executive Search as full corporate members of the IOR. Being part of the UK's largest independent recruitment business, CNA Executive Search has great ambition to grow and double in size. The IOR will help that expansion by supporting them with training, recruiter membership services and networking with our growing HR membership base. I look forward to working with CNA Executive Search and ensuring they get maximum value from being part of the IOR."
Managing Director of Network Group, Jon Smith, says, “Recruitment companies who are part of the Network Group are continually being encouraged to find new ways of adding additional value to the clients and candidates they represent. In aligning CNA Executive Search with the IOR we are supporting our partners with a globally recognised accreditation and ensuring that they and their clients receive some of the finest, most professional standards that can be found within the recruitment industry.”
