3D Recruit Achieves Double APSCo Compliance+ Accreditation


3D Recruit, a specialist provider of qualified social workers and teaching professionals in the UK, is celebrating becoming the first APSCo member to simultaneously hold Compliance+ Social Work and Compliance+ Education accreditations.

The company, which was established in 2010 following the merger of Amicus Recruit and SocialWork 2000, achieved its Compliance+ Education accreditation in February 2018, having held Compliance+ for Social Work since its inception. 3D Recruit was the first APSCo member to undertake a joint audit in February this year, which it passed with flying colours.

APSCo developed its Compliance+ accreditation to provide an uncompromising quality benchmark for Education and Social Work recruitment companies. It is the best practice quality standard for Education and Social Work recruitment businesses and compels members to go beyond statutory safeguarding standards and aim for excellence in competency selection and service quality.

On achieving double accreditation, Ben Arnold, Managing Director of 3D Recruit, commented:

“As the first ever company to hold the APSCo Compliance+ accreditation across both Social Work and Education, I am immensely proud of such an amazing achievement. The support from colleagues and our management team has been brilliant, and the positive feedback we have had from our candidates and clients, during and following our audit, has been wonderful to hear. This accreditation demonstrates that safeguarding runs through the company at every level, and the protection of the young and vulnerable is at the heart of everything we do.”

Sam Hurley, Operations Director of APSCo, adds: 

“The fact that 3D Recruit is in the unique position of achieving double Compliance+ accreditation demonstrates the company’s commitment to providing high quality, appropriate staff across the vital sectors it supports. I’d like to congratulate the team on passing their recent audit with ease, there is no doubt that 3D Recruit embodies the epitome of best practice and it is an honour to be able to provide the company with a badge of quality which demonstrates its commitment to excellence to its clients and candidates.”
