Recruitment you can trust

As a leading social care resourcing specialist in the UK, we place safe recruitment at the heart of everything we do.

We believe, this is not just best practice, but our duty. A duty we take seriously as a DBS umbrella organisation.

This is why we operate one of the most stringent compliance processes within our sector – so that you know that the candidates we place are of the highest calibre.

Robust compliance

All DBS registered bodies (such as recruitment agencies and umbrella organisations) who process criminal record and safeguarding checks must physically check original documents before applying, and therefore before any worker starts work.

Every candidate goes through a robust and thorough compliance checking process prior to their placement with you. This includes a face-to-face meeting, where original documentation is seen and verified, and where an interview is completed to ensure each candidate is suitable for the post for which they have applied.

Our compliance checks include:

  • Proof of identity (provided in person)

  • Full employment history

  • Verification of professional registration

  • Checking of professional referee details for the last 5 years

  • Verification of training and qualifications

  • Disclosure and Barring Service and relevant overseas police checks

  • Proof of eligibility to work in the UK

  • Check on up—to-date statutory and role specific training

  • Occupational health screening (for relevant services)

This approach ensures our recruitment services are always compliant and that we adhere to the safe recruitment guidelines for those working with vulnerable people, as set out through local and national government, as well as the Crown Commercial Services, CPP and HealthTrust Europe framework teams.
