Expert Screening Teams

Our recognised training school in Hampshire supports a comprehensive internal development programme for our employment screening teams, creating a loyal motivated and proactive workforce that is focused on customer and candidate experience and ensuring that all expectations are exceeded.

All Screening Bureau recruits are screened to the highest level. Our Operation rigorously adheres to the highest operational procedure standards and compliance policies, which we share with you, to ensure consistency and proactivity in our service.

Timely and accurate

Above all else, we understand the tight timelines required to on-board new recruits. Our employment screening operation works to pre-agreed turnaround times, and to support these we have established a series of 'workarounds' - expert background screening methodologies used for when standard referencing, for reasons outside our control, are not available.

Our background as auditors allows no compromise on quality.


Once we’ve helped you to decide what employment screening package or individual background check best suits your business, you will need expert guidance to integrate employment screening into your recruitment workflow.

That’s where our experienced Implementation Team comes in. As pre-employment checking process experts they will review your current procedures with you and supply the necessary hard and soft copy documentation and training to ensure that the background screening contract starts on a robust footing.

Implementation over an agreed period guarantees that both parties are aware of their roles and responsibilities, are working to an agreed risk matrix and have clear processes in place.
