Athona is founded on the principle of employing people who are undeniably experts in their field. This expertise and knowledge empowers us to create strong and successful partnerships and in-turn means we are recognised through the following awards and accreditations. All of these are a testament to our accomplishments as an organisation.

Athona Education is accredited gold standard

Athona Education is accredited as gold standard by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), first receiving this accolade in 2015. Since then we have continued to uphold the exceptional standards needed to retain this accreditation and in 2021 achieved an industry high of 100% on the online audit diagnostic (the average is 87% so our result is exceedingly rare).

We fully abide by the REC’s Code of Professional Practice’ which provides a framework of principles and support that reflect our companies values of honesty and integrity. You can view the code in full detail here.

What does this mean?

The gold standard demonstrates Athona’s adherence to the highest possible standards in compliance. Furthermore, it shows that Athona exhibits “best practise in customer service, staff development, diversity and client management” at all times.

This accreditation was achieved through external audits and is something we are incredibly proud to have received. The recognition identifies the quality work we do on a daily basis and we believe it is just one of the ways we stand out from our competitors.

What does this mean for you?

If you seek employment through us or we place teachers into your school or nursery, you can rest assured you’re working with professionals acutely aware of all of the ever changing legal requirements in educational compliance.

Athona Recruitment’s REC Corporate Membership number is: 00052510.
