Event Details


Your entire talent acquisition strategy hinges on finding new hires that will make an impact within the existing team. You want candidates who will make positive change but also work together as part of the team you have already created. You want candidates with integrity, who share your organisational values; who are who they say they are; have the  with the right to work in the UK and the required qualifications and experience they claim.  So how do you make sure the candidates you are recruiting are the ‘right fit’ for your business whilst ensuring you are recruiting without discrimination and ensuring that you are equipped to tackle candidate fraud through lawful employee vetting?

In our previous Recruitment Event we shared with you how to maximise digital recruitment and develop your employer brand. The forthcoming seminar will help you broaden your knowledge on the legal and practical issues within recruitment to make sure you are hiring for fit into your business, looking in particular at:-

Paul is proud he doesn’t have a degree from a degree mill, however he has worked within both blue chip and SME’s recruiting diverse personnel. This is where first-hand experiences of CV fraud has led him to now work with the quality background screening company Verifile Ltd from its base in Bedfordshire. Paul is now launching Verifile’s new branding and growth plan to ensure quality background checking becomes the norm not the exception.


Paul will be looking at the challenges of candidate fraud and employee vetting.
