Our approach

At Barclay Meade, we take pride in the service we provide and are committed to maintaining the highest standards of ethics and compliance. You can find out more about the way we operate below.

Operating with integrity

We recognise that we have a direct influence on the lives of our employees, candidates and clients, as well as our suppliers and the wider community. We expect all employees to be the best they can and be accountable for everything they do, and we take pride in operating to the highest standards and acting with integrity. 

We are a proactive member of the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC), the body responsible for representing the professional recruitment and staffing industry. We are bound by the REC Code of Practice and hold a Gold Standard of Recruitment Accreditation which proves our commitment to providing a high quality of service at all times.

In addition, and as part of our dedication to quality and professionalism in pursuit of achieving customer satisfaction and commercial goals, we hold the ISO9001 accreditation for Quality Management. 

We are committed to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our business or in any of our supply chains. Our Group statement outlines the steps we are taking to address the risks of modern slavery in our business.

Being environmentally responsible

Effective environmental management is an integral part of our commitment to proactively minimise any adverse impact we have on the environment in which we operate. We hold the ISO14001 accreditation for Environmental Management to ensure that environmental issues as a result of our activities and services are constantly addressed and monitored.

We recognise that we have a duty of care towards protecting the health and safety of our employees and others who may be affected by our activities, and we hold the ISO18001 accreditation for Occupational Health and Safety Management. 

Valuing diversity

We value the difference that a diverse workforce brings to our workforce and to that of our clients. We are fully committed to the elimination of unlawful and unfair discrimination and strive to ensure equality of opportunity to all to provide all of our employees and candidates the opportunity to achieve their potential and further their careers. We treat everyone with whom we come into contact with as part of our business with respect and dignity. We promote a professional working environment and will not tolerate any form of discrimination, bullying, harassment, victimisation or any other adverse treatment.

Caring for our community

We are committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work. We aim to work with our community partners to support and contribute to community projects that benefit the local areas to our offices. We engage with our employees to select charities and volunteering projects they wish to support, and encourage that support by allowing time off to assist with these and other volunteering activities.


In addition, all of our employees embrace our parent company, Gattaca's values. You can find out more about Gattaca's purpose, vision, mission and values here.
