A pledge by employment and recruitment agency/business Members of TEAM : The Employment Agents Movement (www.jobsatteam.com )
Recruitment and employment agencies/businesses who are recognised Members of the above have agreed to adopt certain commonly accepted principles. These principles are considered to be the minimum standards that any employer/end user client should expect when engaging with recruiters. In most instances the business’s own Code of Conduct will more than likely include and surpass these principles, but if any employer/end user client has reason to be concerned about the conduct of the Member then they should immediately bring the matter to the attention of TEAM.
