Customer Service Policy

Customer Service Policy

U&P Ltd wants to put the Client and Candidate at the top of its agenda. This customer service policy sets out what this commitment means in practice. What our Clients and Candidates can expect from us and what we expect of our Clients and Candidates.

Our customer service policy makes clear the Company's commitment to provide excellent services that offer value for money. Key to achieving that vision is a good relationship with our Clients and Candidates.

Different sectors will have different Clients and Candidates but it is important that each are treated to the same high quality response. This policy and the standards within it apply to everyone.
