Vetting Officer; Stevenage; Contract

As a Vetting Support Officer, you will be required to carry out essential areas of pre-employment screening for candidates seeking employment in a multi-national company.

The role will involve supporting the Vetting Officers as part of a wider personnel security team and responsible to a UK-functional manager. In order to meet industry legislation, you will be required to carry out referencing checks on all candidates - both in terms of employment history and personal background checks. This will involve discussions with external companies and hastening non-replies in a timely way so as not to unnecessarily impede our own recruitment drive.

In addition, you will be required to verify other information in application packs to ensure that a robust and fair programme of employment screening is in place that detects anomalies, prioritises critical applications and takes candidates through the on-boarding process as seamlessly as possible.

Some collaboration is required with external service providers and a close-working relationship with internal HR Advisors will be required.

Experience of working in a recruitment environment would be desirable.

Organisational skills are the most important, this is a key requirement for the role.

Hours: 8:00am to 5:00pm
