We offer a range of services to employers across a variety of sectors. The beauty of our service is that it is available to you on a purely ad-hoc basis.  When you need us, we will be there.  

With our collective breadth of over 20 years recruitment and screening experience we are confident that we have a comprehensive understanding of what’s required by our clients.  We know how important deadlines can be and how much time it can take to carryout even the most basic background checks on a prospective employee. 

As our background is within financial services, we are familiar with the process involved in carrying out stringent screening checks. 

 

For you, the process is simple. Just send us the name and contact details of the prospective employee. We will then contact them and carry out the checks with minimum fuss to you or, just as importantly, to your prospective employee. We are happy to provide regular progress updates for you throughout the process, although essentially, the next time you hear from us will be when all the checks have been completed. The documents will be sent in an easy to read, easy to save PDF file.

 

We understand the importance of being flexible and we would therefore be more than happy to discuss any requirements that you may have in order to put together a bespoke package for you.  Prices depend on work volumes and checks required.

"But why bother with pre-employment screening?"

 

Carrying out the screening checks shows your prospective employee that you are a professional, reputable organisation. By partnering with a screening company who understands how these checks need to be carried out, it will also give the employee an excellent first impression of your business.

 

Pre-employment screening provides security......

 

Security in the form of knowledge.  Knowledge that this person, in whom you have already invested so much time, is who they say they are.  Research has shown that 1 in 5 applicants have a major discrepancy on their CV, but pre-employment screening provides verification of an individual and their employment history, confirmation of their qualifications and memberships and confirmation of their right to work in the UK.

 

"But why can't I do these checks myself?"

 

Pre-employment screening can often lead to frustration if you do not have the necessary contacts to obtain the information that you require.  We know how important deadlines can be and how much time it can take to carry out even the most basic background checks on a prospective employee.  As we have a strong background within financial services, we are familiar with the process involved in carrying out the most stringent of screening checks.  We have a database of contacts to help the process run as smoothly as possible, with limited contact with the applicant. 

 

Pre-employment screening provides information.....

 

Information in the form of offical data.  Our checks can include verifying an applicants current place of residence, if they are on the Electoral Roll, their date of birth and any adverse information including County Court Judgments or Bankruptcies. All details that you may not discover in time unless pre-employment screening checks are carried out.

"Why would I spend money on this service"

 

Hiring without pre-employment screening can be a costly mistake, not to mention time consuming and in some cases even cause a risk to your business.  The cost of carrying out these checks pales into insignificance when compared to the cost, both in terms of time and money, of having to restart the whole recruitment process again.  

 

Pre-employment screening saves you time.......

 

Time that you will not need to spend on replacing a candidate.  Re-hiring after a bad expereince takes up valuable time and is not only expensive, but it stifles business growth, as the initial need to hire the candidate is still there and has been since the process started all those months ago. Making the right hire first time is vital.

 

"Don't pre-employment screening companies have complicated on-line systems?"  

 

Unlike most pre-employment screening services we do not require an online application to be completed. All we require from our clients are very basic details about their new starter.  We will then in turn make contact with the individual in order to review their CV and clarify any details that we feel are necessary to progress with the required screening checks.
