RCSA and Prime Super to sign six year principal partner agreement


April 19, 2017: The Recruitment & Consulting Services Association (‘RCSA’) has signed a heads of agreement for a principal partner agreement with Prime Super, replacing the current agreement with Kinetic Super. The new agreement with Prime Super will come into effect on 1 July 2017 and follows a six month review process undertaken by RCSA, the peak body for the recruitment and employment industry.

“This is an exciting announcement for our members” said RCSA President, Robert van Stokrom. “We have found in Prime Super a partner who mirrors our ethos of member-centricity. We know Prime Super recognises the value of our members and, importantly, understand the unique requirements of our industry. We have focussed on Prime’s ability to bring significant additional benefits and their desire to work with us to deliver products and services best suited to our members’ needs. We expect a formal contract to be finalised and signed over the next week.” van Stokrom said.

Prime Super Chairman Alan Bowman said "We are looking forward to establishing this relationship with RCSA, and believe that Prime Super can bring a cost effective, straightforward and agile approach to superannuation and service delivery to RCSA members. We believe our success in developing this relationship has been as a result of our strong investment performance and member benefits which can, in turn, help RCSA members, and their employees, achieve their retirement goals. At Prime Super we understand the changing world of work and the need to match a flexible work approach with a flexible approach to superannuation".
