The Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) will launch an education sector group from next month in a move to give education recruiters a clearer choice of representation.
“No government has ever really understood the recruitment sector fully,” said Ann Swain, chief executive of APSCo.
“There is a huge difference between a chambermaid and an interim Finance Director but if you have to lobby the Government as one big group, then the industry tends to get treated as one big sector – just one of the reasons why those recruiters operating in professional sectors end up as collateral damage for a lot of the broad brush legislation which is really aimed at protecting vulnerable workers – not career professionals.”
The new sector group aims to reposition professional recruiters in education, also challenging government legislation which particularly affects the sector.
Several issues have been identified by the group as priorities including whether the current Quality Mark is fit for purpose and the impact of the academy model on the future of procurement.
