When you are recruiting, comprehensive pre-employment screening checks could save you a fortune.

Independent research from Powerchex shows 17% of CVs have  AT LEAST one major discrepancy. And the cost of removing an employee on the grounds of unsuitability will cost at least £5000 – and in some cases up to £1m!

If your candidate is from overseas, you could be fined up to £10,000 if you haven’t checked they are working legally.

No company can afford to bypass this process and below is a check list of the areas you should investigate for anybody you are considering employing:-

criminal record check,  credit check, civil judgements,  driving licence, educational qualifications, professional qualifications, media check, employment history references
residential history eligibility for employment.

GMD Recruitment can do the checks for you. Call 0800 019 9828 or email
