Pre-employment screening

Screening services without frontiers

Pre-employment screening, also known as vetting or background checking, is usually carried out on new job applicants. However, it is also a legal obligation for some roles such as those that involve working with children or vulnerable adults (Disclosure and Barring Service).

Agenda’s screening services have no frontiers. Our reach is global, with access to in-country expertise and global pre-employment solutions that both fit culturally and are legally compliant. We have a range of in-house language skills within our UK offices. Where more detailed in-country knowledge is needed, we are able to call on the expertise of our trusted and fully audited screening partners, located in the United States, Poland, France, Singapore and Australia. 

Added Value
  • Reduce staff turnover and employment costs
  • Reduction of petty theft and fraud
  • Reduce infiltration risks (terrorists/activists)
  • Strict screening processes will put off undesirable applicants
  • Allows you to manage specific risks

Bespoke Screening

You can select from an extensive menu of screening options to suit your specific needs.  If you are unsure, we can provide free advice on what screening level would be appropriate.  We will help you to design screening processes and policies that are fit for purpose.  For example, for clients concerned about extremist groups, we have developed our Affiliations Check.  This provides a full internet mining search (over a billion web pages).
