The Benefits Of Working With An ISO Accredited Recruitment Agency

Working with an ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) accredited recruitment agency can offer several benefits for both employers and job seekers.


1. ISO Standards

ISO accreditation indicates that the recruitment agency has met specific standards and requirements, ensuring a high level of quality and professionalism in its operations. 


2. Emphasis on efficiency and effectiveness in operations

Working with an ISO-accredited recruitment agency may mean streamlined and well-defined processes, reducing the likelihood of errors or delays in the recruitment process.


2. 2020 Recruitment ISO Accreditations

We are focussed on continuous improvement and committed to assessing and enhancing our processes regularly, and, are proud to be accredited for the following:


2.1. ISO:9001:2015 – Quality Management System

ISO 9001 is a universal standard for quality management systems across all sectors.

Implementing this within our business ensures our processes are efficient, consistent and enables us to constantly deliver to a high standard. Undertaking ISO was a good learning curve for us in terms of implementing systems for best practice and it also helped us identify areas of improvement as a business.

By obtaining this standard it demonstrates a high level of professionalism to Clients and Candidates that everything we do is documented. Employers may feel more confident partnering with an ISO accredited recruitment agency, knowing that the recruitment agency is committed to maintaining high standards and delivering quality services. This confidence can be crucial in building long-term relationships.


2.2 ISO 27001 – Information Security

ISO 27001 is an international standard on how to manage information security.

With data breaches and cyber security becoming more frequent, data protection has become increasingly important. ISO 27001 certification demonstrates our organization has invested in the processes, technology and systems to protect our business data and to evidence your data is sufficiently protected and secure.

ISO 27001 is recognised globally and it ensures that we continually review the way we hold, manage and protect sensitive data. It also gives key specific requirements that a company must meet to keep their accreditation over time. This is extremely important in the recruitment sector where we hold a lot of information to keep it confidential and safe.
