Investors in People

Aquarius has achieved Gold accreditation against the Investors In People Standard, which demonstrates our commitment to high performance through good people management.

Investors in People is the international standard for people management, defining what it takes to lead, support and manage people effectively to achieve sustainable results. Underpinning the Standard is the Investors in People framework, reflecting the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry and enables us to benchmark against the best in the business on an international scale.

Committed to Excellence

The Recovery Focus Group, of which Aquarius is a partner, has achieved the Committed to Excellence 2* (C2E) award, which is a prestigious and internationally recognised accreditation awarded by the British Quality Foundation to organisations which use the EFQM model to remain focused on improving and developing and is a kite mark which demonstrates our commitment to continuous improvement.

Cyber Essentials

Recovery Focus holds Cyber Essentials accreditation, which aims to help organisations implement basic levels of protection against cyber attack, demonstrating to their customers that they take cyber security seriously.

As part of our accreditation application, we were required to assess ourselves against five basic security controls and a qualified assessor then verified the information provided.

The five basic controls within Cyber Essentials were chosen because, when properly implemented, they will help to protect against unskilled internet-based attackers using commodity capabilities – which are freely available on the internet.

Organisations that undertake Cyber Essentials are encouraged to recertify at least once a year and, where appropriate, progress their security.


Aquarius’ Head Office in Birmingham has secured ISO14001 accreditation. ISO14001 is a standard relating to environmental management that exists to help:

  • Minimise how business operations negatively affect the environment
  • Comply with applicable laws, regulations and other environmentally oriented requirements
  • Continually improve in the above areas.
