A Message From Our Director

As the Director of Custard Recruitment, I feel it is vitally important that all of my staff understand the importance of their role in consistently achieving the highest professional standards, with Safer Recruitment at the forefront of our minds at all times. My background is Human Resources and Employment Law, I am a qualified Primary School teacher and have been involved in developing safer recruitment processes since 2001, when I first started employing teachers. The one thing that links all of these elements of my life is my passion for ensuring that things are done correctly, ensuring the safeguarding of individuals and organisations. Our Recruitment Compliance team carry out rigorous pre-employment checks, going above and beyond the legal expectations of our industry, to ensure that the person who joins your team is not only fully qualified and professionally capable of doing the role for which they have been recruited, but that they will not pose a risk to the safety of the people they are working with. ‘Safer Recruitment’ is a practice that runs through the very heart of our business. Whether recruiting teachers, nurses or office professionals, the processes are in place to ensure that those around us are kept safe. As a smaller business, my team are able to focus on what is important to us. We are driven to keep the reputation we have worked so hard to build over many years. This is done through genuinely caring about getting your recruitment right. I don’t believe that safer recruitment should mean more expensive recruitment for our clients. As an established business, with streamlined processes, we are able to offer our services at a very competitive level without compromising the service given to clients. I am confident that you will find my team to be courteous, knowledgeable and committed to their work, but should you wish to talk to me I am always at the end of the phone line and more than happy to offer any guidance you may need. Thank you. Louise Hatcher
