AM2PM required a solution to automate their Right to Work verification when onboarding candidates. They wanted to make cost and process efficiencies whilst maintaining Home Office compliance.
AM2PM Group Holdings Ltd own specialist managed services and recruitment divisions that offer companies, temporary workers and job hunting candidates fast, efficient, professional, and bespoke services within the retail and manufacturing sectors.
With 11 UK branches, AM2PM recruit in excess of 1,000 workers every week, so an automated Right to Work compliance solution to onboard their candidates was essential to streamline their processes.

Needed a digital solution to replace their existing manual processes
As AM2PM expanded, they faced a logistical challenge in adhering to ‘Right to Work’ legislation, due to the high volume of documents needing authentication, verification, and storage. Existing manual processes were inefficient; and the burden of ensuring compliance and checking Right to Work visas, permits etc. was unmanageable, bearing in mind they provide staff for industries (e.g. manufacturing and retail) who also struggle in these areas.
Furthermore, AM2PM needed to regularly upskill their HR staff to keep pace with evolving ‘Right to Work’ legislation. For a recruiter, inadvertently hiring illegal workers is catastrophic, so they needed a digital solution to ensure compliance, whilst reducing the burden on staff.
