Financial Services & Insurance

For the Financial Services & Insurance industry, Reed Screening has extensive expertise in the requirements set by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA), particularly under the Senior Managers & Certification Regime (SMCR), but we also recognise that individuals who fall under such requirements are only a small proportion of the industry’s workforce. For non-regulated roles, organisations would be foolish not to operate a comprehensive and robust Screening programme across their entire workforce, with varying levels based on role specific risk.

Reed Screening provides screening packages designed specifically for the needs of the Financial Services & Insurance industry, with packages pre-tailored to mitigate risk when hiring for popular roles such as Hospitality and Facilities staff, Call Centre roles, or Directors, Regulated roles, Brokers, Accountants, and Mortgage Advisors. 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 establishment is operating safely, efficiently and with appropriately qualified, responsible, and reliable staff.
