Helping the Recruitment Sector - Right to Work

Not all businesses hire employees directly; indeed, the use of temporary workers supplied by recruitment agencies is widespread. It is the agency’s legal responsibility to make relevant checks on their right to work status on temporary workers

The recruitment industry is under increasing pressure to comply with the latest government regulations around Right to Work compliance. Recruiters now need to check, authenticate and retain all potential and existing candidate identity documentation to ensure they are eligible to work in the UK via ‘Right to Work’ checks.

Hence, employment agencies must ensure that all the pre-employment screening are robust and can meet government regulation. This is where we help.


We work closely with recruiters from a broad range of sectors to help transform internal capabilities and approaches to workforce onboarding and monitoring through strategies that enable risks to be minimised and opportunities to be taken.
