According to an article I read today on the Recruiter website, Kevin Green is attributed with a quote I had to read twice to make sure I had got it right. Speaking at the Institute of Professionals’ annual awards he apparently said: ” So from tonight we say firstly to all the payroll, umbrella companies and the dodgy non REC recruiters, we are going to shine a bright light on your dubious practices and expose you to the world.”
Hmm – so if you are not a member of the REC you are dodgy. I’d be very careful Mr Green. We are not at the stage yet where membership of a trade association is compulsory- nor are we at the stage where there is only one choice.
