Membership & Accreditations

Since 2003 we have endeavoured to provide the best professional recruitment service possible. Our commitment is reflected in our APSCo membership and ISO9001 accreditation.
Our success is echoed in our achievements, something we’re extremely proud of and are entirely down to the fantastic relationships we have with our industry-leading clients. Keen to fully understand the market in which we operate, the team at Electus are continually looking to diversify and join other society and industrial memberships creating a benchmark for our professional, reliable service.  Our clients and candidates are a key factor in contributing to our success and so it is our duty to provide a quality recruitment journey for them.

Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo)

APSCo was formed in 1999 and is now the leading trade body supporting the professional recruitment sector. A crucial factor in our decision to join APSCo was its market-leading approach to standards that has allowed it to become a trusted badge of recruitment quality in the UK and across the world. APSCo helps us further enhance our reputation for consistently high professional standards by providing access to best practice legal advice, market intelligence, and a portfolio of professional development opportunities. When you select an APSCo member, you can rest assured that you are partnering with a professional recruitment firm that is committed to best practices and achieving the highest quality standards supported by a brand with an international reputation for excellence.

Why APSCo Should be Important to You

An increased pool of diverse candidates

APSCo provides us with access to the latest diversity guidance and advice to help us access new, diverse talent pools, support your CSR objectives and encourage best practices throughout the candidate sourcing and selection process.

Enhanced employer brand and reduced risk

APSCo support helps us partner with our clients to extend and amplify your employer brand in the market place, using our access to best practice legal advice and the latest market intelligence provided to source rare talent and mitigate reputational risk to your organisation.

Greater peace of mind from working with the best

Before joining, we had to pass over 20 quality checks with clients and candidates and sign up to APSCo’s strict Code of Conduct that makes sure that only the best firms can become APSCo members

Certificate number 4926


We have held ISO9001 UKAS approved certification since 2005. Our Quality Management System (QMS) is focused on customer satisfaction, achieving optimum operational efficiency and continuous improvement within our organisation.    

Cyber Essentials

Electus Recruitment has been awarded a Cyber Essentials Certification. This means we are now protected against common cyber threats, we can bid for Government contracts and most importantly it shows our clients and candidates that we take cyber security seriously and that our data is tightly secure.


The Cyber-security Information Sharing Partnership (CiSP), part of CERT-UK, is a joint industry-government initiative to share cyber threat and vulnerability information in order to increase overall situational awareness of the cyber threat and therefore reduce the impact on UK business.CiSP allows members from across sectors and organisations to exchange cyber threat information in real time, in a secure and dynamic environment, whilst operating within a framework that protects the confidentiality of shared information.


Armed Forces Covenant

Electus is delighted to be the first recruitment business in Dorset to sign the Covenant and has committed to a range of Armed Forces-friendly initiatives. This is a huge accolade for us and one we are very proud of. We have been working within the UK Defence sector since 2003 and have always actively supported ex-military individuals in finding and securing new and exciting careers. Signing the Armed Forces Covenant formalises this commitment and we look forward to working with the military to help individuals leaving the forces to find a career that makes the most of their knowledge, skills and experience. As of August 2019, we have been honoured with a Bronze Award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme, in relation to our ongoing commitment to help Defence personnel and their families.
