Case Studies

  • A National Charity

    I need a one stop shop

    As an umbrella body we are able to provide every level of criminal record check available within the UK using both paper and online application systems.
    This was music to the ears of a new client who was looking for a one stop solution for country wide checking that suited how his candidates wanted to apply for their disclosure. He has since recommended us to other professional contacts

  • Security Guarding

    Our ACS audit is upon us!

    Our client approached us when they realised they had a ACS audit due in 4 weeks and had just identified that they had approximately 90 candidates who had not been vetted to the SIA BS7858 security screening standard…
    By committing a dedicated team to his files we were able to work closely with the client and resolve any outstanding vetting issues as they arose. They got through the audit and we got a long term client.

  • Parking Management

    They just give up…

    Not all security and vetting companies behave in the same way. A call to our office revealed an unhappy HR Manager whose current vetting company seemed to be making a habit of finding an issue with a file, delaying their progress and then invoicing him anyway without telling him what had happened.
    He was understandably quite cynical when we advised that our approach is to do everything possible to ensure that a client can keep the employee they have worked so hard to recruit. In practical terms we never cancel or terminate a file without examining every option to resolve any issues. And we only cancel a file with the agreement of a client.

  • Facilities Management

    Help – our SIA staff haven’t been vetted!

    Upon taking over in a new HR position M. discovered that he had 100 staff whose SIA BS7858 vetting had not been completed. Contacting us for the first time he was reassured that we could quickly manage that volume of files and that the SIA would sympathetically view the issue.
    He later said our calm expertise and supportive manner had taken a weight off his shoulders. And it turned out that those 100 files were only the beginning of what has become a long term relationship…

    We want them to work this evening

    Whatever sector you’re in, urgent situations arise and we try to support you accordingly.
    When a client needed a BS7858 screening in time for a new employee to start that evening we set to. Within two hours all the checks were done and a conditional vetting report had been despatched to our very happy client who was able to fulfil his contract without problem.

    Driver Licence Certification – at the double

    The recruitment process is costly and lengthy enough without last minute problems – but people are not always as honest as they might be.
    When our client’s applicant was checked out for a driving position we discovered that he had 12 penalty points on his licence and was therefore banned from driving. Fortunately, we were able to phone our client so quickly that he was immediately able to go back to another applicant to fill the position saving him both time and money. We were very popular that day!

    We have been using SVS for our vetting since 2011 and are extremely satisfied with how our account is managed. Whatever the request we always get through to someone who is very familiar with our account and our business needs. They deliver consistent results and proactively keep us informed and advised. They have also adapted their processes to meet our specific needs without issue and this has been much appreciated.

    Pizza Hut Delivery

    Having used Security & Vetting Solutions in a prior role, I had no hesitation in recommending them to Pizza Hut where background screening is a key element of our recruitment due diligence process.
    As previously, they continue to deliver in their proactive management of the vetting process and I highly recommend them.
