The Recruiter Accreditation Scheme: The Why, The What and the How

Posted on Thursday 21 November 2019

A webinar for both recruiters and researchers alike, explaining everything you need to know about the new AQR /MRS Recruiter Accreditation Scheme (RAS). 

This webinar is generously sponsored by The Talking Shop: 3 gorgeous, perfectly equipped studios that are perfectly placed in the heart of the diverse, creative city of Manchester.

The RAS has been introduced to improve the quality of qualitative recruitment throughout the qualitative recruitment supply-chain.  The success of the Scheme will depend upon buyers of qualitative recruitment services to make positive choices and to buy quality recruitment from recognised accredited recruiters and recruitment organisations, as this will drive demand for recruiters to seek accreditation.

Webinar presenters Debrah Harding (MRS Managing Director) and Lynne Chapman (ICG member and a recruiter), are part of the RAS Working Group that developed the Scheme and during the webinar will discuss:

  • Why RAS was introduced and the background to the development of the Scheme
  • Outline the benefits for recruiters and buyers of recruitment services
  • Explain how the accreditation works
  • Introduce you to  free training materials.

Teaser question – just to get you thinking:

You have been asked to recruit using social media for a car manufacturer, who wants to recruit male drivers aged 30-50 years who drive a specific type of car.  Which of the following would not be acceptable for a recruitment post on social media?

  1. Specifying that you are seeking men aged 30-50 years
  2. Specifying that you are seeking car owners
  3. Specifying that you are seeking car owners who drive a specific type of vehicle
  4. All of the above are acceptable.

(The correct answer is 3) as this is revealing too much detail and may lead to fraudulent participants trying to fit quotas in order to participate in research to receive an incentive.  1. and 2. are an acceptable balance between too little and too much information).
