Recruitment and employment laws are forever changing and keeping abreast of new rules and regulations is almost impossible for people who do not specialise exclusively in recruitment. Through our numerous accreditations you can rest assured that you are working with professional recruiters who will guide you through the legal minefield of hiring new staff, keeping simplicity and clarity at the forefront of everything they do.

Custard Recruitment work across numerous industries, through our business links. All industries have different levels of compliance needed from their workforce.

We have a dedicated Compliance Manager who is up to date with the rules, regulations and employment laws with regards to recruitment of staff across all business sectors (including those with higher level compliance requirements such as Health Care)

Custard Recruitment are also accredited REC members. Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) is the professional body for the recruitment industry. All members must abide by a Code of Professional Practice (REC Code). Above all, the REC is committed to raising standards and highlighting excellence throughout the recruitment industry.

As REC members, we had to pass the REC’s Compliance Test on entry to the REC and then we must pass again every two years to retain membership. If an agency uses the REC logo it means that they have passed the initial Compliance Test and are required to adhere to the REC Code. The Code of Professional Practice can be found by clicking here.
