Partnerships & Accreditations


APSCo (The Association of Professional Staffing Companies) is the only membership body dedicated to representing excellence in the professional recruitment industry. Since its founding in 1999 it has grown rapidly to become the authoritative, trusted and innovative voice for the professional recruitment sector, representing organisations and affiliates from sole proprietors and boutiques to international blue-chips.

The APSCo badge is recognised by candidates and employers as the differentiating quality mark in professional talent acquisition.


We are strategic partners of ACOSVO, the Association of Chief Officers of Scottish Voluntary Organisations.   ACOSVO exists to inspire, excel and develop leaders by providing a wide range of topical events, development opportunities and relevant services.



Aspen is proud to be accredited by the Living Wage Foundation. The real Living Wage is the only UK wage rate that is voluntarily paid by 7,000 UK businesses who believe their staff deserve a wage which meets everyday needs – like the weekly shop, or a surprise trip to the dentist.



Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed, industry-supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common online threats. Aspen sees this accreditation as essential reassurance for our clients that our IT is secure against cyber attack.
