Full marks in REC Compliance Test

We’re pleased to announce that Supertemps Ltd achieved 100% in the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) Compliance Test.

In order to display the REC logo and remain members of this leading trade body, members must pass a compliance test every two years.  This demonstrates they meet the high standards required and operate in accordance with the 10 principles contained within the REC’s Code of Professional Practice.

As members of REC since 2002, this code demonstrates Supertemps’s commitment to the highest operating standards, and far exceeds merely meeting statutory obligations.

Members must exceed the 75% pass rate and failure to answer a single “red flag” question correctly will leave membership in question.

“We invest a lot of time, energy and money in ensuring we keep abreast of legislation and best practice and ensuring our whole team is trained, and successful in passing, REC qualifications,” said Sarah Ellwood, Managing Director.

“We’re thrilled to have gained a 100% pass rate when we took the Compliance Test this week  It is becoming more and more important for our clients to be able to demonstrate transparency in their supply chains and that they are working with reputable partners. Our test results are testament to this,” she continued.

The REC Compliance Test questions relate to both permanent and temporary recruitment practices and require in-depth knowledge into the following areas:

  • Contracts
  • Work seeker Files
  • Advertising
  • Data Protection
  • Key Policies and Procedures
  • Health & Safety
  • Client Files
  • REC Code of Professional Practice
  • Professional and well informed staff
  • Limited Company Contractors
  • Agency Workers Regulations
  • Equality and Diversity
