Vetting Services

Our pre-employment screening and vetting facility is a standalone service, available to any employer regardless to whether you have utilised our recruitment services.

The Red Snapper Group are experts in recruiting for highly sensitive roles and organisations and we recognise the importance of ensuring your employees have been suitably screened before they join you.

We understand the requirements, timescales and administrative burdens of coordinating various levels of vetting. Our additional vetting services are an intrinsic part of our current working practice and by managing the process on behalf of our clients we are able to absorb the impact of the extra workload.

We require a minimum instruction for 3 persons for all categories listed below, other than the SC Security Check which can be for an individual

1. Basic pre-employment screening – £60.00 per candidate

  • Proof of identification
  • Proof of address
  • Employment References covering the previous five years.
  • Proof of eligibility to work in the UK

2. Basic pre-employment screening + Credit Check – £90.00 per candidate

Employee Credit Checks enable employers to assess a candidate’s financial background. Credit Checks highlight whether a candidate’s Credit Report contains any adverse financial data such as Bankruptcies, County Court Judgements (CCJ’s), Voluntary Arrangements and Administration Orders.

3. Basic pre-employment screening – Standard DBS Disclosure – £170.00 per candidate

Standard CRB Disclosures contain details of all criminal convictions, including current and ‘spent’ convictions, held on the Police National Computer (PNC), as well as details of any cautions, reprimands or final warnings.

4. Basic pre-employment screening – Enhanced DBS Disclosure – £210.00 per candidate

Enhanced DBS Disclosures are required for job applications which involve a much greater degree of contact with children or vulnerable adults. The type of work which requires an enhanced DBS disclosure will involve regularly caring for, supervising, training or being in sole charge of such people. Enhanced DBS disclosures are also required for certain statutory purposes such as gaming and lottery licences.

5. Security Vetting – Security Check – SC – £300.00 per candidate

This is the most in-depth type of vetting and has a number of levels. We can deliver the following levels:

Security Checks are the most widely held security clearance for jobs involving long-term, frequent and uncontrolled access to secret assets and occasional and controlled access to top secret material. An SC involves a BC, plus checks against the UK criminal and security records (and if appropriate, of overseas countries) and a credit check.

SC clearance is only suitable for employees who will be employed directly or indirectly within environments which requirement government security clearance. Customers will be required to show evidence to demonstrate their application complies with this criteria.)
