Good Recruitment Campaign

We have signed up to The Good Recruitment Charter. Devised and developed by The Recruitment & Employment Confederation’s employers’ advisory panel, the charter is the centrepiece of the Good Recruitment Campaign.

The charter defines good recruitment practice through nine key principles that we will aspire to. Good recruitment helps organisations acquire the talent they need to perform and grow. It also provides great candidate experiences and helps ensure that the UK workforce is used to its full potential.
