In our last blog update we highlighted we became the only DBS checking & pre-employment screening partner available to all REC members in the UK. First off we got all REC account managers up to speed with Cataphract’s service lines and unique offers, so they can spread the word to the registered firms about our service. We then attended a number of networking events and booked into key forms hosted by the REC over the summer.

Through hard work from the REC team, we recently received our first referral of business from a recruitment firm delivering new hires to an insurance firm in London. If the growth plans come to fruition, we should complete 50 background checks this year directly to the Insurance business alone, with more referrals from the recruitment firm to their clients.

To further our relationship, we are looking to partner the REC on a number of initiatives to assist recruitment partners verify ID and candidate details more efficiently, with the addition of verification portals, automated ID screening and central database for specialist sector contractors to store and manage their ID.
