Our code of ethics
The recruitment industry is an unregulated field. There is no governing body to set standards, enforce best practices or to regulate members of the industry. We believe that maintaining the highest standards is key to successful client and candidate relationships, as well as to our own employees pride and satisfaction in their roles. We have therefore established our own code of ethics which sets the standard expected throughout our business.
- We foster long-term relationships with both our clients and our candidates.
- We seek to understand our clients' business, facilitating the placement process so that our clients may continue on with their business efficiently.
- We perform an in-depth interview with all of our candidates, ensuring that they fall within our required skill sets, and have an attitude and objective we can wholeheartedly promote.
- We take the time to match the appropriate candidate to the role and organisation, only sending appropriate CVs to our clients.
- We inform our clients if we are unable to find a suitable candidate.
- We maintain up-to-date records.
- We monitor our own performance, setting our base target for the interview-offer ratio higher than is needed.
- We encourage both positive and negative feedback from our clients and candidates, incorporating their valuable observations.
- We will only approach candidates from firms that are not our clients if we are proactively seeking a candidate.
- We insist our staff maintain an exceptional standard of conduct at all times.
