The SiR programme helps recruitment agencies to achieve good business practice as painlessly and cost effectively as possible.

As well as addressing the regulatory aspects of recruitment the Standards themselves reflect the rules of engagement that your clients and candidates expect, effectively working as a blueprint for you to use to your advantage.

Step 1

On application you receive the Standards and accompanying guidance notes, so you can see the pathway to improvement.

Step 2

Discuss the Standards and guidance notes with colleagues to ensure corporate buy-in to the SiR programme. Contact us if you have any questions.

Step 3

The SiR programme is flexible and you choose when your business is ready to move onto each stage of the process. This begins with an optional gap analysis, an onsite pre ‘MoT’ undertaken by an independent recruitment business auditor. The outcome will help towards any further fine tuning and hopefully give you the thumbs up that you are ready for the final legal and onsite accreditation audit.

Step 4

Following a successful final audit you will be awarded a certification and given use of the SiR ‘kitemark of quality’, a well-deserved flag to fly, a proud achievement.
