About APSCo

The Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) is the UK’s leading professional recruitment industry body. Originally set up in 1999 as the Association of Technical Staffing Companies (ATSCo) the recent change of name reflects the expanded remit and membership of the association to include organisations engaged in the acquisition of business professionals on behalf of clients, either on a permanent or flexible basis.

Opening up membership to recruitment companies who provide business professionals is a natural progression for APSCo as the issues and challenges it champions go far beyond those affecting just the technical staffing industry. APSCo provides a unified powerful voice for the professional recruitment industry and its membership which includes small specialist independents through to publicly quoted companies is growing fast.
• APSCo’s mission is to ensure that its members offer the highest possible standards of trading practice and that it promotes excellence throughout the professional staffing industry
• APSCo facilitates the exchange of professional and regulatory information between Industry members and related bodies and serves as the authoritative source of information (other than statistical) concerning the professional recruitment industry.
• APSCo provides a recognised stamp of quality assurance. Members have access to business intelligence, use of the APSCo logo along with a wide range of services and benefits.
• For membership and accreditation, members are rigorously referenced, must adhere to a strict Code of Conduct and are re-audited annually.
• APSCo has close and ongoing relationships with key government departments and agencies including the Treasury, the DTI and the DBERR.
• At an international level APSCo actively promotes overseas business opportunties for members and takes a proactive role in Western and Eastern Europe in relation to EU directives and regulations.

Corporate social responsibility is very important and APSCo has raised over £1.4m for the NSPCC Childline. Earlier this year, CEO Ann Swain received a fellowship from the NSPCC in recognition of her exemplary efforts to raise awareness and sponsorship of its Full Stop Campaign.
