Service Charter

We aim to ensure that all people searching for employment related services get access to the essential services they require within our organization. We are committed to providing support for you by providing high-quality, reliable and professional service. We will emphasise the necessity of service excellence and the dissemination, through our corporate culture, of the attitude that clients come first.

This charter tells you about the range and level of service that you can expect to receive from us. It also tells you what we expect from you, as our client, and what you should do if things go wrong. As your employment needs change, we will update this charter to reflect those needs.
