Their portal for uploading candidates for vetting and viewing their status is extremely intuitive allowing us at a moment's glance, the current status of a candidate.”

“Secure screening services helped me to complete BPSS screenings for 25 individuals. I didn’t know what a BPSS screening was or the process that went with it! The team walked me through it every step of the way, they were always on hand to answer questions and made me feel supported in a process I was unfamiliar with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them and will be using them again should we need more screenings completed.”

FAQs

What is employment screening?

Employment screening is the process of evaluating and verifying the background and suitability of job applicants before they are hired by an organisation, or are chosen to work on a specific project. It involves various checks and assessments to ensure that candidates are a good fit for the position and the company.

What are the benefits of employment screening?

Employment screening provides numerous benefits to employers and organisations, including improved hiring quality, reduced risks, and enhanced workplace safety. It helps identify the most qualified candidates, mitigates the hiring of individuals with problematic backgrounds, ensures compliance with regulations, and safeguards an organisation's reputation. Additionally, employment screening reduces liability, fosters trust among employees and customers, enhances productivity, lowers training costs, minimises the risk of employee theft and fraud, promotes cultural fit, and ensures legal compliance. It is crucial to conduct screening responsibly and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations to maximise these advantages while respecting candidate rights.

How do Secure Screening Services work?

At Secure Screening Services, we have developed a portal that is both easy to navigate and completely transparent during the screening process. It’s simple to create an account where you can either pay as you screen or you can have an account for large volume users.

Simply add the details of the person to be screened, select the level of screening and leave the rest to us. We will contact the candidate and obtain all the information and let you know when the screening process is complete.

You will have access to a full and comprehensive report via the portal which you can download for your records. We have made the portal as interactive and user-friendly as possible. The portal can be accessed via computer, tablet or mobile device. We know that this candidate’s experience reflects your organisation’s reputation, and you can trust us to deliver a professional service in a timely manner.

How long does the screening process take?

We have invested our time in developing a product that processes information in the quickest times available. The portal can be viewed throughout the process, clearly showing what stage your screening has reached. We get the completed screening package to you as soon as it is processed.

How much does screening cost?

Our pricing is clear and transparent. We have built various screening packages which have fixed costs. We also have a screening menu so you can build a screening package just for you or choose a single check. These are all individually priced so you have a clear understanding of the costs involved. Check out our pricing page for more information.
