Fast, efficient identity checks, supported 7 days a week

In a competitive world where deadlines and targets are often tight, you may be under pressure to process and place applicants quickly. But you can’t overlook the importance of identity checks on candidates to ensure their Right to Work. If you’re asking your consultants to manually check, copy and file identity documents for every candidate, the reality of consistently managing checks can be complex and inefficient.
But being able to demonstrate robust identity checks can be a strong competitive advantage and show that you take compliance seriously.

Digital Right to Work

As a recruiter, you may be interested in the new Digital Right to Work Scheme and how it will affect you. From 6th April, the Government is updating Right to Work guidance and releasing a digital Scheme which will allow recruiters to remotely verify the Right to Work status of candidates by using an Identity Service Provider (IDSP). As a leading IDSP and Right to Work service provider, we are getting lots of questions about the change in legislation so we’ve put together this FAQ document!

How can identity document verification services help your agency?

Quick identity document scanner check

Save time

An automated, online verification system can check IDs in seconds and store a copy in your files.
One customer estimates that software saves them 3 minutes per check so if you’re checking 150 candidates monthly, that’s a day a month saved.

Stand out in a competitive world

Publicising your use of identity verification services gives your clients confidence and peace of mind that your candidates are verified in a consistent way. Many of our customers widely communicate their use of ID checking systems, both to highlight the technology as a competitive strength and also to deter anyone from applying for roles using fraudulent documentation.

Simplified Know your customer process image

Introduce consistency

An automated system consistently checks security features in a document and offers an analysis of whether it is suspicious or not which is far superior to a visual check. You don’t need to train staff to be identity or Right to Work experts and your applicants get a clear, straightforward onboarding experience.

Online Right to Work checks on the move

Make checks from anywhere

Available through our online app or web-browser interface, our services help you make checks whenever and wherever you meet your candidates.
You can ask candidates to upload their own identity document images using our Guest Links feature, which can be combined with address verification and face match technology to give you additional confidence.

Protect your business

Most candidates will be presenting genuine IDs, but wouldn’t it be nice to have peace of mind?
A candidate who is using illegal documents and who has no Right to Work in the UK could seriously damage your brand and reputation as well as the leading to a fine up to £20,000 per candidate.
