Employees who need to be approved or accredited by a regulatory body can often represent a greater risk to the employer and therefore require higher levels of screening.
There are many regulated positions, especially in the financial sector, where screening is a mandatory process for recruitment. Screening candidates who require regulatory approval often means a more in-depth level of vetting.
Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) screening is a detailed look into an individual’s background to ensure an applicant is ‘fit and proper’ to carry out the job role they are applying for.
FCA screening is determined through a number of different background checks under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, and is part of a strict recruitment procedure for these specific industries.
If you’d like to learn more about FCA screening or to apply for any of the checks we offer here at CBS, please get in touch to speak to one of our trained advisers.
