Histories are more full of examples of the fidelity of dogs than of friends. Alexander Pope
Living with a dog is easy – like living with an idealist. H L Menken
The reason why a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue. Annonymous

NEW CODE OF PRACTICE LAUNCHED
Harrison Pursey help lead the way with a new code of practice launched by the REC (Recruitment and Employment Confederation) for the Marketing, Media and Communications sector, to help and advise candidates, clients and recruitment agencies.
The aim of the code is to set a standard that professional recruitment agencies will aspire to reach and to help stamp out unethical practice and behaviour in the recruitment industry.
There are three parts to the code; one is a Code of Practice for recruitment agencies and the other two are intended as guidance for clients and candidates. Harrison Pursey was one of a small group of agencies involved in the formation and development of the codes. ‘We fully support any initiative that will help to raise standards and endorse the agencies that work to high professional standards. The new codes will give candidates and clients confidence that they can expect a high standard of conduct and service if they choose an MMC member agency’ says Barbara Harrison. If you would like a copy of either the client or candidate guidelines, please email Barbara at firstname.lastname@example.org For more information on the REC, please go to www.rec.co.uk
