Globally, most organisations who have a requirement to conduct either landside or airside vetting on their new hires find the process both frustrating and challenging.

In the UK, whilst the regulatory standard is set by the CAA, it is adapted and interpreted by each pass office slightly differently, often leading to confusion, extra administration and ongoing compliance issues relating to the acceptance and rejection of files by the airports pass offices on an on-going basis.

Working in line with UK legislation set out by the CAA, we deliver the defined vetting checks which include:

  • Proof of identity (Proof of address and photographic ID) including right-to-work verification. Digital right-to-work solutions are available for British and Irish passport holders.
  • 5-year activity verification (including employment referencing, education verification, gap periods over 28 days, unemployment verification)
  • Basic criminal record check (Disclosure Scotland in Scotland, Access NI in Northern Ireland)
  • Overseas criminal record checks for periods of 6 months spent outside the UK in the last 5 years.
  • GSAT accreditation where requested.

With airports globally governed by stringent regulations, and the time taken to gain an airside pass often being the stumbling block between talent engaging with a company or finding alternative employment, outsourcing airside screening can often feel daunting.
