Local authority screenings

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.

Our screening for local authorities consists of the following checks:
• Confirmation of identity
• Confirmation of current address
• Credit check
• Bankruptcy/insolvency
• County Court Judgements (CCJ)
• Directorships
• Right to work
• Employment history 5 years
• Professional qualifications
• Highest educational establishment
• Basic Disclosure

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 a personalised quote, click here link to Price enquiry.
