Recruitment consultants to be investigated by ACE

The Association for Consultancy & Engineering (ACE) is to examine the tactics used by 'unscrupulous' recruitment consultants to attract employees.
The organisation is to investigate complaints from members alleging that some firms are supplying staff who they then remove and replace after a trial period to earn more fees.The ACE claims that firms then have to re-advertise the role, or use the recruitment consultancy again to fill the vacancy.No specific allegations have been levelled at any firms.
