Standards in Recruitment becomes a TEAM Partner

Standards in Recruitment (SiR), the UK’s first and only independent compliance and accreditation programme specifically for recruitment agencies across all sectors, is pleased to announce that it has formally become a Partner of TEAM, the UK’s largest network of independently owned recruitment and employment businesses.

John Randall, engagement director for SiR said, “We are delighted to have been recognised by TEAM as one of their official Partner organisations and believe this will support our mission of raising the standard of compliance within the recruitment industry.”

Randall continues, “Membership of an association such as TEAM has many benefits whilst at the same time the value of independent verification of compliance is becoming increasingly recognised across the hiring spectrum.” 

Jackie Torr, managing director of TEAM said, “We are delighted to confirm Standards in Recruitment has been accepted as a TEAM Partner. Many more employers are recognising the importance of a compliant supply chain and organisations like SiR can provide independent verification of an agency’s standards. We are pleased to welcome them to TEAM’s growing community”

Randall continued, “The value of achieving SiR accreditation is recognised by the Crown Commercial Service (England) and the National Procurement Service (Wales) in their commercial framework agreements for the provision of supply teachers for the public education sector. SiR is also an approved supplier to the Association of Recruitment Consultancies and becoming a TEAM Partner will help us further raise the importance of compliance within the recruitment industry.”

Randall concludes, “With its distinctive mark of excellence, SiR accreditation sets a recruitment business apart from its competitors, an important factor in an increasingly competitive marketplace”.
