Frequently asked questions

From the 6th April, 2022, the Government updated its Right to Work guidance facilitating the use of online, right to work checks. Government accredited Identity Service Providers (IDSPs) can therefore use this facility to remotely verify the identity of people with appropriate documents – removing the responsibility for employers to physically check, ratify and record these documents.

An accredited Identity Service Provider (IDSP) uses Identification Document Validation Technology (IDVT) to read in-date, biometric UK and Irish passports to correlate this information with an image of the candidates’ face as submitted with their application. Facial-recognition technology, in conjunction with IDVT,  confirms the identity of the candidate, and with it their Right to Work.

No. As an employer, digital identity verification and the digital Right to Work scheme mean that you no longer have to check and ratify your candidates’ documents if you use an accredited Identity Service Provider (IDSP)! This facility is approved by the Government and uses biometric facial matching to confirm that your candidate is using their own document and not one belonging to someone else. The only responsibility of the employer is to confirm that the person who turns up to work matches the identity of the person verified during the Right to Work check – i.e. they are your candidate!

Yes. The digital Right to Work scheme is Government approved and requires an accredited Identity Service Provider (IDSP) to complete the checks. Identification Document Validation Technology (IDVT) is used in conjunction with biometric facial matching to confirm that your candidate is using their own identity document and negating imposter fraud. A report will be produced confirming the authenticity of the candidate’s identity document and the level of confidence in the reading.

The digital Right to Work process has a number of advantages for both the employer and candidate. Speed – document validation technology in conjunction with biometric facial matching provides a quick and convenient process and removes the need for organising a face-to-face meeting. Hassle free, robust checking – Identification Document Validation Technology (IDVT) removes the responsibility of physically scrutinising and ratifying documents presented to you. Error minimisation – as well as ensuring the validity of documents, digital Right to Work removes the human error associated with recording passport details, providing you with a quickly generated, accurate identity verification.

BPSS Screening

"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."

Secure Screening

"Secure Screening Services are a valuable partner to our business. As a recruitment agency, we are required to perform background checks for a number of our Clients in a short period of time which can be an administrational burden and also time-consuming. Their platform is very easy to use with the team providing quick results."
