When working with recruitment agencies, check they are a member of 1 of the 3 main trade associations listed below. For complaints about the conduct of any member refer to the relevant association or report to us at SAFERjobs.
|APSCo www.apsco.org||REC www.rec.uk.com||TEAM www.jobsatteam.com|
Reports to SAFERjobs about recruitment companies where unlawful practice is suspected will also be shared with the Employment Agencies Standards Inspectorate, part of the Department for Business, Innovation, and Skills (BIS).
Job boards do not have an association as such, but any issues can be reported to the Citizens Advice Bureau or here at SAFERjobs and we will address these with the relevant parties. If a job board is suspected to be acting as a recruitment agent this will also be shared with the Employment Agencies Standards Inspectorate, part of the Department for Business, Innovation, and Skills (BIS).
