Our industry-leading team of subject matter experts in the Advisory Bureau have developed a comprehensive library of half-day training modules. Each of these modules is aimed at addressing each principle area of employment screening.

We can also deliver dedicated training sessions to ensure compliance with industry-specific recruitment policies and legislation, including the British Standard BS7858:2006+A2:2009, BPSS (Baseline Personnel Security Standard) and roles requiring approval by the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority)

Our Advisory Bureau’s Subject matter experts can perform a complete audit and review of your existing recruitment and resourcing documents.

This ensures that your current policies and procedures are fit for purpose and retain compliance with all UK legislation for employment, including the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act (2006) and the Data Protection Act (1998).

This audit and report is essential for evaluating the screening practices of suppliers, clients and other third party companies you wish to engage with in order to evaluate their suitability for partnering with.

We will produce a full audit report which identifies potential risks and weaknesses against a risk matrix and we will advise on any corrective measures required, which enables you to better understand any company you wish to engage with.

The Advisory Bureau offers a tailored half-day, in-house training package for Human Resources and Recruitment teams aimed at ensuring best practice in identity verification and eligibility to work in the UK.

The package ensures statutory defence under the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act (2006) as well as compliance with both Acts and the updated points-based system.

We also offer a full range of immigration consultancy services from help with sponsor licence applications and on-going management to Home Office Audits and migrant staff application support and relocation. See our Immigration Consultancy Services page.
