Pre-employment screening allows employers to ascertain the integrity and suitability of an applicant to a given role. Pre-employment screening can cover everything from revealing a candidate’s immigration status to confirming their personal identity, to substantiating claims made on their CV, to checking their past criminal history.
Criminal record checking (CRB) or security screening is part of the process of pre-employment screening. It is the act of checking the criminal past of an applicant. In doing so, the employer is able to make a fully-informed decision as regards the candidate’s suitability for the post
The Criminal Record and Barring Service, due to launch later this year, will supply this information to employers in order to preserve safety and security in the recruiting process. We have made it easy for individuals and organisations alike to request a CRB disclosure to help them maintain a safe, secure and effective working environment.
