Employment Screening for Financial Services

The Financial Services industry is highly regulated and has to maintain the highest standards in relation to ensuring employees possess the skills, qualifications and knowledge to perform the job role they are applying for.

Our Knowledge and experience extends beyond the more traditional pre-employment screening to a range of other, more specialist background checks including the Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR). Complying with the requirements of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), our comprehensive employment screening solution for financial services reduces the risk of making bad recruitment decisions.

SMCR Employment Screening Checks

SMCR applies to all UK-incorporated banks, building societies, credit unions and Prudential Regulation Authority-regulated investment banks and insurers. From 9 December 2019 SMCR has been extended and applies to all firms that are currently regulated by the FCA. This will affect an estimated 50,000 + asset managers, brokers and consumer companies
