We are proud to add another accreditation to our growing list of accolades.
Read more about how we became one of only twelve companies in the UK to receive external accreditation from the Recruiter Accreditation Scheme (RAS) in recognition of our knowledge, skills and competence in professional recruitment within the research environment.
Face Facts market research agency based in Headingley Leeds is celebrating after securing RAS Recruiter Accreditation.
The Recruiter Accreditation Scheme (RAS) has been developed by the Market Research Society (MRS) and the Association for Qualitative Research (AQR) to raise the profile and status of recruiters, by devising a training and accreditation scheme that recognises the knowledge, skills, and competence of professional recruiters.
One of only twelve companies in the UK to receive the external accreditation, Face Facts is proud to add another accreditation to its growing list of accolades.
The RAS programme combines online training and assessment with self-directed work-based learning. Completion of the RAS requires undertaking a specified number of learning hours and passing an online assessment.
Talking about what the accreditation means to the company Julie Gaughan, Joint Owner said, “As a business we are very proud to join the elite list of companies to have achieved this accreditation. Face Facts works hard to standout from the crowd and achieving RAS serves to raise our profile within the sector by recognising our competence as a professional recruiter.”
The company recently achieved ISO27001 recertification – the international standard for information security. The recertification demonstrates Face Facts ability to meet mandatory requirements around establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving information security management system (ISMS). ISO certification demonstrates that the company has invested in people, processes, and technology to protect data and provides an independent, expert assessment of whether data is sufficiently protected. For clients working with Face Facts it offers reassurance that they are working with a research partner that puts their data first.
