Finding the right person for a job is something that we take incredibly seriously at Secure Screening Services, and this is no different when it comes to hiring our own staff.
"Our people are our strength... We are dedicated to building a nurturing, creative and expressive environment that allows our employees to grow into their roles and achieve their goals."
Mark’s main aim when starting Secure Screening Service was to create a company that was straightforward, simple and – most importantly – human. Having worked with a few other companies in the past to complete DBS checks, he found their automated systems unnecessarily clunky and complicated, and he wanted to build something that was easy to use.
After discovering a passion for engineering, his career blossomed and he worked for a number of companies, as well as starting his own successful engineering business. When he met Martin while working for the police, they hit it off immediately and eventually decided to start a new business together, harnessing their skills and creating a team of like-minded individuals.
As CEO, Mark brings with him a wealth of experience, working closely with Martin to make key decisions and put plans in place to grow the business. He also harnesses his engineering background to ensure the company’s infrastructure and facilities are working correctly.
When he was a kid, Mark wanted to be a racing driver.
Martin started Secure Screening Services with two goals. Firstly, to improve the landscape of the employee screening industry and provide excellent service for their clients, and secondly to create a team of employees grounded in mutual respect and friendship.
As Chief Operations Officer, Martin is responsible for the overall success and drive of the business, championing tactical operations and ensuring the systems are in place to provide the best service possible.
He is passionate about developing the team at Secure Screening Services and giving people the development and opportunities they need to reach their ambitions.
