The Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) has appointed Fiona Lander as head of Professional Development in a move that will see the launch of a new APSCo professional training division in January.
“I am delighted that we have persuaded Fiona to join us to develop our professional development offering – an offering which will include the immediate benefit of a Chartered qualification in recruitment leadership which Fiona developed with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI),” said Ann Swain, chief executive of APSCo.
“What this gives us is professional qualification that is not only globally recognised across all industries – but which has also been tailored to be relevant to the recruitment profession. We were the first trade association to offer an MBA and now we will be the first to offer a Chartered qualification.” The training will not be restricted to APSCo members.
Ms Lander has over thirty years’ experience in the recruitment industry and as a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development ( CIPD), will also be responsible for developing training to complement APSCo’s Recruitment Practice Standard (RPS) online qualifications, developing the APSCo Talent Hub, progressing the Recruitment Apprenticeship scheme and further promoting the Recruitment MBA.
