Government – Baseline Personnel Security Standard

Government Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS)

If you are recruiting for any government related work you will be asked for a BPSS or the Baseline Personnel Security Standard pre-employment screening. This is because national security vetting is underpinned by its rigorous and consistent application. When you’re working in a secure environment it’s essential that your professional integrity is not compromised by recruiting unsuitable personnel. Our industry specific pre-employment screening process satisfies the Home Office BPSS.
As a mandatory requirement, Baseline Personnel Security Standard screening needs to be part of any pre-employment recruitment control and this can be hugely time consuming in smaller companies. Why not use our friendly team of screening specialists  to reduce the risk of damage to your commercial reputation and the loss or compromise of government assets? Our service typically references a 3 or 5 year career history (we can also supply a 10 year employment history if needed).

Our Baseline Personnel Security Standard Screening Includes:

  • Confirmation of name, date of birth and current address
  • Confirmation as to identity and right to work within the UK
  • 3 or 5 year career history referencing
  • Independent verification of any career gap which exceeds 31 days
  • Education checks as appropriate
  • Basic criminal record disclosure
