Finlay James Associates has become a ratified member of the UK’s leading professional recruitment industry trade body the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo).
The organisation exists to ensure the highest possible standards of trading practice are adhered to within the professional staffing industry.
Finlay James will now reflect the views of the technology and sales sectors within the national body.
Mark Neilan, managing director of Finlay James Associates, said: “We were approached and asked to join as a sector specialist and we look forward to giving input in regards to the sales and technology market.
“Finlay James has not previously joined an industry body because as a company we value quality highly and had previously felt that we had not found the right fit. However, APSCo are prepared to take the time to vet its members and ensure that quality exists.
“We hope this can also provide our clients and candidates with an assurance that they are dealing with a reputable company.”
APSCo’s lengthy vetting procedure includes obtaining quality references from past candidates and clients and ratification by the association’s executive committee.
Marilyn Davidson, APSCo director, said: “Finlay James Associates is now in its tenth year of trading and long established as a leading consultancy in the technology sales sector. We therefore value its voice in the industry and are extremely pleased to now include Finlay James as an APSCo member.
“As with every APSCo membership we engaged in the same exhaustive process of gaining references, which ensures the body's stamp of quality. Finlay James received glowing references which illustrated to us that as an organisation it shares our commitment to promoting excellence.
“We look forward to working together to ensure the highest possible standards exist within the professional staffing industry.”
