Accountancy

We understand that employment screening checks are an essential risk management step for all organisations employing accounting professionals. The nature of an accounting role means that employees, typically, will have access to highly confidential and privileged information. Which is why our expert team are at hand to support in reducing reputational damage and financial loss by providing strict screening checks. Our bespoke packages in line with industry best practice include checks ranging from criminal records right through to financial probity and referencing, all of which are designed to protect your business.

Reed Screening provides screening packages designed specifically for the needs of the Accountancy industry, with packages pre-tailored to mitigate risk when hiring for popular roles such as Accounting Clerks, Accountants, Auditors or Chief Financial Officers. We cover everything from permanent hires and fixed term contractors, to temporary/agency supply chain.

We can assure you that all your workers are screened to the high standard you need to ensure that your business is operating safely, efficiently and with appropriately qualified, responsible, and reliable staff.
