Employees who need to be approved or accredited by a regulatory body can often represent a greater risk to the employer and therefore require higher levels of screening.
There are many regulated positions, especially in the financial sector, where screening is a mandatory process for recruitment. Screening candidates who require regulatory approval often means a more in-depth level of vetting.
Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) screening is a detailed look into an individual’s background to ensure an applicant is ‘fit and proper’ to carry out the job role they are applying for.
FCA screening is determined through a number of different background checks under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, and is part of a strict recruitment procedure for these specific industries.
