Screening Services

Pre-employment screening and compliance services protecting you from risk

Knowing you’ve made the right recruitment decision is important. Outsource your pre-employment vetting to Reed Screening and we’ll support you with a team of professionals committed to compliance. 

We are one of the UK’s largest pre-employment screening businesses. Given our roots in recruitment, we know the importance of providing a service that meets ever-changing professional and regulatory standards.

We stay up to date with industry developments by actively participating in industry groups, including APSCo (Association of Professional Staffing Companies), NAPBS (National Association of Professional Background Screeners) and SAFERjobs. We’re also the only recruitment company to be a member of ECHO (Employers Cooperating with the Home Office) and CIFAS, the UK’s independent fraud prevention service.

Every year, we complete over 120,000 end-to-end candidate vetting checks, over 154,000 references and over 55,000 police checks. We’ve developed our service to support different industries and now operate 24/7.

It’s essential that organisations protect themselves with a high quality pre-employment screening process. We offer peace of mind so you can recruit the best talent, without the risk.
