Screening and vetting services for local authority personnel
Diminishing budgets put local authorities in a situation where they can’t afford to make wrong hiring decisions. Both CIFAS (UK Fraud Prevention Service) and The National Fraud Authority urge local authorities to carry out pre-employment checks on their potential staff.
Our Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS) might be a good practice to undertake, however, we offer a more specific service for local authorities that can help protect themselves from becoming victims of fraud. Our background check designed for local authorities follows the CPNI’s (The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure) guidelines on pre-employment screening to ensure that all potential areas of risk are verified.

How we manage high volume requests
Organisations may wish to carry out different levels of screenings for different positions considering the risk factor of the role. Our service can be tailored to meet specific requirements. For example, we recently had a client looking for BPSS screenings after winning a contract for the Home Office, who needed someone who could cater for high volume requests. Luckily, our software, Xavier, enabled us to complete 1300 screenings in 4 months for this client, so they could proceed with their work uninterrupted.
