Ethical Recruitment


Day Webster are committed to the highest levels of business ethics and has a code of ethics developed to ensure employers and jobseekers receive the very best recruitment standards.


The management of Day Webster keep this policy under annual review as part of the company's commitment to enhance and uphold ethical recruitment standards.

Recruitment Standards

We seek to enhance the recruitment profession by upholding high standards in everything that we do. We represent ourselves fairly, honestly and courteously at all times and do not engage in any activities which would bring the recruitment industry into disrepute.

Continuing Professional Knowledge

We ensure that we continuously update our professional knowledge in relation to recruitment and enable all staff to maintain a level of skill commensurate with this.

Recruitment Solutions

We seek to provide the best possible recruitment solution to the identified needs of our client at all times and do all that is reasonably practicable to achieve this.


We always comply with legislation and regulation as it affects the process of recruitment and do not assist or act in collusion with clients to knowingly circumvent the law or standards of ethical recruitment practice in any way.


At all times we act with the integrity, honesty, due diligence and appropriate behaviour that can be reasonably expected of recruitment professionals.

Recruitment Practice

At all times we promote fair recruitment practices that are in accordance with all anti-discrimination law in place in the UK.


We respect the confidentiality our clients and candidates at all times. We do not send a CV to a client without the candidate's permission. We do not put a candidate forward for a role until we have sent the candidate a full job description and discussed the role, in detail. Similarly, we ask candidates and clients to respect the confidentiality of all information we provide to them and not to disclose this to third parties. We ask candidates not to make use of the information we provide to make personal applications to clients.


We promote due diligence and high standards of timeliness, accuracy of information and advice given to clients and candidates.


We do not undertake tasks which are outside our personal level of skills, competence and qualifications.


We report to the appropriate regulatory bodies any company that breaches any regulation or legislation applicable to the recruitment industry.


We listen and ask relevant questions to fully understand the requirements of the clients and candidates, offer advice where needed and continuously update and improve our service.


We do what we say we are going to do. If we say we will call you at 9am - we will. If we believe there is a better approach, we'll say so.

Treating everyone with respect

We treat our clients and candidates with equal respect. We make decisions regarding assignments without regard to gender, age, disability, religion, ethnicity or national origin.

Professional Representation

We represent clients and candidates in the candidate market. We understand the ethos of the client companies we work with and are as proud to sell their companies as we are to sell our own.

Maintaining contact with you

Before submitting candidates we let clients know how applications and screening interviews are progressing. Throughout interview and appointment processes we maintain regular contact with clients and candidates. But it's a two-way process, so we do appreciate a prompt response when we contact you.

Promotion of our services

Our promotional materials provide fair representation of the company's services.
