NSL Partners with Association of Labour Providers

NSL, the public sector services specialist, has partnered with the Association of Labour Providers (ALP). The ALP promotes, represents and supports employers in the UK.

NSL’s Validation Solutions service, part of its central government sector, offers comprehensive vetting management and identity authentication services tailored to recruiters and employers needs. This includes using identity document validation and verification systems powered by Keesing Technologies, world leader in identity verification products.

The partnership will include discounted access to a range of services, which exceed the UK Statutory Excuse requirements on safeguarding employers from the risk of prosecution and reputational damage.

Validation Solutions is part of the NSL, which manages complex outsourced services to the UK central and local government and the NHS.

NSL Validation Solutions, Account Director, Kenneth Hanslip, said: “We see a natural alignment between the ALP’s core values and goals of driving professionalism and compliance in the labour provision industry. Our objective is to ensure that recruiters and employers have all of the necessary tools available, to assess and vet identity documents when checking whether an individual has the right-to-work in the UK.”

ALP Director David Camp, said: “The ALP has had a long association with Keesing Technologies spanning some five years and this has allowed us to support our members with access to identity verification products and sector specific training in preventing illegal migrant working.  ALP members commit to ethical and legal compliance and our partnership with NSL Validation Solutions will help our members demonstrate their commitment to the correct levels of checks on individuals working in the UK. To support this further we will be working with NSL Validation Solutions to offer our comprehensive training programme to both our members and a wider market sector.”
