Pre-employment screening

We have extensive experience working with medium and large enterprises who recruit more than 50 new employees every year. Currently, we work with clients that have more than 800 new starters every month that all require a high level of screening. In 2020 we screened more than 120,000 candidates.

Our experience can help you understand the specific requirements you need when undertaking employment screening, specific to the industry you work in.

The benefits of pre-employment screening

Attract qualified individuals

Ensuring your business is compliant has never been more important, and the risk of an unqualified hire includes harm to your organisation, bad publicity, fraud and more. Don’t be caught out. We offer specialised screening checks across many industries to ensure your candidate meets all legal and regulatory requirements.

Attract likeminded candidates

Your business has worked hard to build a positive organisational culture, filled with shared values, beliefs and goals. A bad character hire can disturb the balance and wreak havoc within your teams. We run checks specifically designed to give you a bigger picture of your candidate, make sure they’re the right fit for your business, and protect your organisational culture.

Attract genuine talent

The Recruiting Office describes that 63% of applicants admit to lying on their CV on things like work experience, skills, and even education and professional qualifications. Shockingly, only 31% of those who lie are ever caught. By screening your applicants, you can ensure your new starters are genuinely as good as they say they are.

Attract only the best

Pre-employment screening increases the quality of applicants. Screening acts as a deterrent to those who are unqualified or unsuitable for the role, saving your recruitment team time reviewing inappropriate candidate applications, and increasing the efficiency of your process.
