Retail Partner with First Advantage today for quality retail industry background checks and screening services. Hire smarter. Onboard faster.

Why is employee screening
so important in the retail sector?

If your employees engage with the general public and manage finances on a regular basis, it's vital you've performed fit and proper background screening to reduce risk to your customers and your organisations.

Have confidence that an applicant is legally allowed to work in the UK, that they’ve provided accurate references and qualifications, and that they aren’t concealing adverse information that may deem them unsuitable for working within retail.

Not only do you need to protect your business from fraud and financial loss, but you need to protect your customers and be sure your employees’ behaviour and conduct is above board.

Reduce the risk of fraud and loss, and potential damage to your brand and reputation.
