Advocacy quote

You know more than anyone that recruitment is about people.

Our industry is thriving. With a turnover of £31.5 billion in 2014/15*, it’s certainly a packed marketplace.

How can you keep up, and make sure your company stands out among the best?

IRP Advocacy could be your answer. It means signing your staff up to IRP membership, showing your commitment to them and their career development.

Not convinced? Here are five reasons you should consider IRP Advocacy:

1. It shows your dedication to industry best practice.

Signing your staff up for IRP membership means they sign up to the IRP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct too. They commit to upholding the very best standards in recruitment. This is a differentiator you can use with clients, candidates and prospective employees.

2. It shows you as an employer of choice.

Your IRP Advocate status signposts you as a ‘go-to’ recruitment business, serious about professionalism, the development of your people and making sure you deliver the very best service to clients and candidates.

3. Your staff receive all the benefits of IRP membership.

As well as signing up to the IRP Code of Ethics, your staff will stay up to date on recruitment law with access the comprehensive online legal guide and the bi-monthly IRP Legal bulletin. They can also access some of the REC’s industry research free of charge, and can use our fantastic IRP Lifestyle benefits.

4. Tailored feedback from the new IRP Continuing Professional Development (CPD) scheme

Our new IRP CPD online programme encourages all members to stay up to date and on top of our industry. IRP Advocates can see how their staff have done, and identify any trends. This will help you identify their strengths, and any potential areas for improvement.

5. Your staff know you’re committed to them

At the end of the day, our business is about people. There's nothing more important than the investment you make in your own people. If they feel that you support them, and are committed to them and helping them grow, they'll give you their all in return.

These are only some of the reasons IRP Advocacy could be for you.
