Essential Employ

Essential Employment, has successfully retained its ISO 9001 certification, solidifying its status as a leading independent recruitment agency.

The assessment, carried out by the British Assessment Bureau, highlights Essential Employment’s dedication to customer service and quality delivery.

Having first achieved this certification in 2015, Essential Employment now continues to display the prestigious ISO 9001 certification mark, showcasing its adherence to the international standard.

ISO 9001, established in 1987, mandates that organizations prove they follow their stated procedures and maintain a quality management system to ensure consistency and improvement. Certified organizations commit to continuous enhancement and undergo annual assessments to confirm ongoing progress.

Managing Director Verity Howson expressed her satisfaction, saying, “We are particularly pleased to have retained our ISO 9001 certification for the 9th year as it underscores our commitment to our stakeholders and our focus on quality. As a strategic partner to our customers and candidates, it is only fitting that we help them save time and money by officially becoming certified, demonstrating our unwavering commitment to a strong culture of quality.”

Verity added, “We were keen from the start to ensure the ISO framework brought genuine value to our clients, rather than seeking accreditation for its own sake. Before presenting ourselves to the British Assessment Bureau, we put in hours of preparation, aligning internal policies and processes with ISO standards, training employees, and conducting internal audits.”
