White gets APSCo accreditation at Right Time

Recruiter James White, the joint winner of last year’s Apprentice, has finally achieved APSCo accreditation after telling porkies about being APSCo-accredited during the interview process in last year’s competition.

Late last year White, managing director of Right Time Recruitment, emerged victorious on BBC’s The Apprentice 2018, with Lord Sugar opting for joint winners in the form of White and confectioner Sarah Lynn.

But in the interview process of the final stage of the competition, White was confronted for using APSCo’s logo on his company’s website, even though his business was still in the process of becoming APSCo-accredited when he joined the programme.

APSCo revealed this morning that this has now been rectified, with White’s business having completed the audit and referencing process, which includes feedback from clients and candidates to demonstrate a commitment to not only professionalism but also excellence, required to secure membership.
