Simplified identity document checks to make sure you know who you're recruiting

Electronic identity checks on candidates' passports, visas and other identity documents can speed up onboarding and make identity checks more consistent.

Protecting your recruitment business

As a recruitment agency, you need to comply with the UK legislation that requires all candidates to be fully entitled to work in the UK. If you're making manual identity checks, this can be time-consuming, inconsistent and make spotting suspicious documents difficult. In a business that's all about people, getting these checks right is critical.
Automated identity checks save time and help protect your business from candidates who present fake or fraudulent documents.

The risks to your recruitment business


Not making reliable identity checks can create a substantial risk, both in terms of legal obligations as well as the potential for significant damage to your reputation and to client relationships.

The Immigration Act 2016, which came into force in July 2016, means that if you fail to comply with Right to Work checks, you could face fines of up to £20,000 per employee and a potential prison sentence of up to 5 years.

Electronic verification of identity documents is becoming best practice across an increasing number of agencies, protecting them and their clients, driving on-boarding efficiencies and providing further differentiation in quality of service.
