Last week the Key Group achieved 100% in the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) compliance test.

The REC introduced the compliance test a number of years ago to assess an agency’s knowledge of the relevant industry legislation and the REC Code of Professional Practice (REC Code). By doing this REC hopes to determine if new applicants for membership can become full REC members and whether existing REC members can renew and retain their membership.

Key Group Finance Manager, Tori Stevens, completed the online compliance test which is made up of a series of questions in a multiple choice format. 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.

To pass the test agencies must achieve at least 80% and answer all ‘red flag’ questions correctly (these are essential questions that must be answered correctly to pass the test and apply to those who place workers, who work with vulnerable persons). And we are delighted to say that the Key Group has achieved a pass score of 100% in every attempt since the test began!
