The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) has introduced an online compliance test to assess an agency’s knowledge of the relevant industry legislation and the REC Code of Professional Practice (REC Code). By doing this REC can determine whether existing REC members can renew and retain their membership.

ENS has been a member of REC for many years.  We are pleased that the REC has introduced this new method of assessing an agency's knowledge and understanding of Compliance legislation and the REC Code of Professional Practice.  The 100% pass rate shows that the ENS team not only understand their compliance responsibilities, but gives clients the reassurance that these processes and policies are fundamental to the way that ENS works.  

The online compliance test is made up of a series of questions. These questions cover key industry legislation and in particular the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003 (the Conduct Regulations) and the REC Code of Professional Practice. When agencies join the REC they sign up to the REC Code which requires basic statutory compliance as well as higher ethical standards. 

The REC Code of Professional Practice has been created in consultation with members and industry stakeholders to ensure that all members of the REC conduct their businesses ethically, to the highest standards and promote good practice. It is binding on all corporate members.

What people are saying about ENS

I feel I would like to give a positive review on working for ENS in any care capacity. I joined at the start of December 2015 and have been offered enough work to fit around my own needs and other commitments. The work has been varied and I received good information prior to the visit. The excellent dedicated back office support staff and they clearly understand their clients’ needs which are aligned to the qualities of the Support Workers, this helps builds the relationship.

While there is a need for help at short notice to meet the company needs I have been further impressed to have good notice of most of the work intended. My role has been largely Community Support but I have worked with our Residential team and clearly there is plentiful work again with helpful support.

In my dealings with the company I have found the ENS team to be helpful and approachable and need to reiterate how impressed I have been. Thank you to all involved.
