White Collar Sector Accreditation


As a result of skills shortages, fluctuating workloads, the changing nature of the workplace, and contingency requirements, an increasing number of companies making use of Temporary Employment Service (TES) Providers provided by our members.  While TES Providers provide an important service to the industry, compliance to the relevant legislation and Bargaining Council Agreements is paramount.  The TESD was established by TES Providers that practice self-regulation and who stay abreast of the latest legislative developments.  They uphold good governance and implement industry requirements.  Compliance should be the main consideration when a client chooses a TES Provider.

Since the TESD is part of an industry association that promotes compliance, it has been rolling out an accreditation process for a couple of years now, affording members time within which to voluntarily apply to be accredited according to a specific set of criteria listed below:   



The TESD Administrator will contact you to advise you when you need to be audited for the first time, or when you need to be audited for your next accreditation certificate, when your old one is about to expire. A mutually convenient date will be agreed upon, and you will be sent a list of required information and documentation which you must have ready for when the auditor visits your premises.


Alternatively please visit the “Contact us” page and submit a request.

A new member is given an opportunity to comply with all the accreditation criteria within their first 12 months of membership and would therefore be required to pay membership fees in full  upon registration. An accredited member has successfully undergone the accreditation process and has been issued with an accreditation certificate valid for a year. The TESD undertakes to promote and advertise all accredited members through various platforms and forums at its disposal.
