About APSO

The Federation of African Professional Staffing Organisations (APSO), was previously known as the Association of Personnel Services Organisations, and has been in existence since 1977. APSO is the largest and most well-established organisation within the private employment agency (PrEA) sector. For the past nearly four decades, APSO has set and managed compliance and best practice standards for its members, for the benefit of clients, candidates and employees alike.

APSO strives to:

  • represent members and promote the industry through lobbying and advocacy initiatives;
  • ensures members adhere to globally aligned ethics and best practice standards;
  • drives professionalism of individuals by providing continuous professional development (CPD), education and training for members;
  • deliver relevant business-critical information to members


APSO is a founding member of the Confederation of Associations in the Private Employment Sector (CAPES) and has thus been actively involved in lobbying and advocacy initiatives to regulate the industry.  APSO representatives participate in a range of forums including Business Unity South Africa (BUSA), NEDLAC, Services SETA, National Skills Authority (NSA) and others.

Internationally, APSO is well respected and holds the seat for Africa and the Near East on the Board of the International Confederation of Private Employment Agencies (CIETT). We have been members of this body for more than twenty years and are actively involved in global initiatives to drive compliance, professionalisation and effective regulation for the sector.
