Employee vetting should never be underestimated. However, even though it is an incredibly important part of the recruitment process, it is often overlooked by HR departments.

A company’s reputation can be extremely affected by its workforce, so the worst thing you can do is employ someone without doing all of the appropriate checks. For example, it has been estimated that over 80% of candidates provide potential employers with false information.


Who Might Need Employee Vetting?

Thorough employee vetting is crucial for companies, organisations, schools, charities, places of worship, and any entity bringing on new personnel. Comprehensive background checks reduce risks when hiring by uncovering:

> Past employment issues like terminations, misconducts, frauds

> False credentials, qualifications, education, memberships

> Criminal histories including spent sentences and charges

> Financial problems indicating risk of theft/fraud

> Concerning behaviours, conflicts of interest

Whether you’re screening a new CEO, teacher, volunteer, contractor or any staff member with access to assets, data, or vulnerable groups, our employee vetting services provide in-depth insights so you can make informed hiring decisions.

Our private investigators help ensure candidates are truly as presented while screening for any red flags that might have gone undetected. Our strict vetting protects your workplace, brand reputation and stakeholders.


How Does Employee Vetting Work?

Our expert investigators leverage various legal information sources to build comprehensive profiles. Techniques used may include:

> Identity document verification checks including Right to Work

> Criminal record searches across multiple databases

> Financial background checks – CCJs, bankruptcies, credit score

> Employment history verification through records and referees

> Professional qualification/membership authentication

> Global sanctions list screening for high risk indicators

> Social media sweeps for reputational risks

We analyse and correlate data from various sources to shine light on any misrepresentations, omissions, or issues. Our strict authentication processes verify the accuracy of all employee details. Custom packages are available depending on role type, access levels, and industry compliance requirements.
