We are an APSCo Member

Here is why that should be important to you

What is APSCo?

The Association of Professional Staffing Companies is a members only group, established to encourage best practice throughout the candidate sourcing and selection process within recruitment agencies. It is essentially a badge of quality and trust for employees and employers alike.

ML Partners have been an APSCo member since early 2018, however far from all recruitment agencies in the UK are members. Members are referenced with existing clients and candidates, thereby only reputable agencies are accepted as members.

By choosing a recruitment agency that is an APSCo member you can be confident that you are dealing with a professional, well-established and committed company that won’t take any shortcuts

Why should this be important to you?

By choosing a recruitment partner that is an APSCo member you can be confident that you are dealing with a professional, well-established and committed business that won’t take any shortcuts. We do things properly and take pride in the way we source and place candidates.

While you as our client or candidate won’t be dealing with APSCo directly, this is still of great benefit to you. APSCo are giving us access to best practice legal advice and the latest market intelligence – which means reduced risk for you, or your business.
