Public Sector

City PeopleEmployers undertaking government work will be aware that they must adhere to the Baseline Personnel Security Screening (BPSS) standard for pre-employment checks. This ensures consistency across the sector, and we are experienced in conducting this type of checks.

They include:

• Identity and right to work checks
• 3 year employment history
• Criminal record (unspent convictions only via basic disclosure)
• Personal references

We understand that this is, however, a baseline standard and as such would tailor the screening in order to be relevant to each specific role, including verifying qualifications or conducting additional background checks.
