Screening and Vetting Candidates

All candidates undergo rigorous screening which incorporates:

  • CV screening
  • Phone assessment
  • Face-to-face interviews with a minimum of two consultants focused on establishing key competencies
  • Skills testing
  • Reference checking
  • Visa and/or employment status verification
Ability on software capability is assessed alongside appropriate aptitude, numeracy, grammar and translation with the facility for skill enhancement training via our ISV Online Testing system.

Our screening process ensures we only ever work with those who have reached the required professional standards.

Educational, Professional and Visa Checking
All candidates have their educational and professional (where relevant) qualifications checked in person and have them scanned onto our database. Where candidates are unable to provide this information, we ask that they send information to us for verification at a later date. We do not submit candidates who have not, in person, provided the necessary documentation either at registration, or during the client interview stage.

All visas are checked in person and scanned onto our database to ensure all candidates are able to work in the UK.

Vetting
Where our clients have specific vetting requirements, we have a dedicated team who conduct the following checks for positions deemed “High Risk”:

5 Year Event History (work/study/travel) where all roles within the past 5 years require specific start and end dates, and all roles within the past 3 years require a written reference. Any employment gaps which include travel are explained in the form of itinerary’s, passport stamps and visas.

5 Year Address History where proof of current address in the form of bank statement/utility bill/lease etc. is provided, alongside confirmation of the specific periods spent at prior addresses

Other information where emergency contact details are provided for the candidate – name, relationship to that candidate, their contact number, and email address.

Personal Referee where the name, phone number, full address, how long the candidate has known that person & their occupation. This person cannot be a relative; must be a professional person but the candidate must know them in a personal capacity; they cannot be a former employer, manager or teacher; they must provide a colour copy of their passport - front and back cover, crest page, photo page as well as their Mother’s maiden name.

DBS Checks - The Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) have merged to become the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). CRB checks are now called DBS checks and are conducted where required by our clients.
