  • What pre-employment checks do you do? -

    If you’re successful, we will need to see your right to work in the UK documents, as well as running some basic background checks specific to the role. For example, some roles may call for a criminal record check and the majority of our roles require us to check your driving licence. Sometimes we need to carry out a more in-depth level of screening. If that’s the case, we’ll let you know at the offer stage.
