Anne Corder Recruitment's ethical approach praised by leading membership body

PRAISE for a Peterborough agency’s ethical approach to recruitment was a highlight of an inaugural visit from a leading UK membership body.

Anne Corder Recruitment welcomed Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) representatives on Tuesday 19 June as part of the confederation’s Members Week initiative.

A standout moment for Lorraine Laryea, a solicitor at the REC, was understanding more about Anne Corder Recruitment’s non-commission based approach:

“Learning more about an agency that doesn’t work on commission was particularly interesting. The REC represents recruiters in all sectors, and with many different business models, but working without commission is very different – and it clearly puts an onus on relationship building. The model clearly works for Anne Corder Recruitment.”

The REC annually selects a handful of members to visit as part of its Members Week initiative. The Lynch Wood-based agency was the only recruiter in the local area selected for this year’s visits.

Joe Canty, business development manager at the REC, explained: “The overarching aim of our visits is to help us learn how, together, we can make the UK’s recruitment industry the best in the world and we know that jobs transform lives.”

Having been members of the REC since 1996, Anne Corder, owner of the Lynch Wood based agency, added: “We are dedicated to being at the forefront of recruitment and the REC’s visit provided the opportunity for us to knowledge share directly with the UK’s leading recruitment body.”
