REC appoints NSL Validation Solutions

The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) last week announced a partnership with identity documents screening expert, NSL Validation Solutions.

Validation Solutions is part of the NSL Group, which manages complex outsourced services to UK central and local government and the NHS. NSL Validation Solutions offers comprehensive vetting management and identity authentication services tailored to recruiters needs.

The partnership will include discounted access to a range of services, which exceeds the UK Statutory Excuse requirements. It also safeguards employers from the risk of prosecution and reputational damage that is caused by unknowingly taking on new recruits who do not have the necessary right to work.

NSL Validation Solutions Account Director, Kenneth Hanslip, said: “We see a natural alignment between the REC’s core values and goals for driving professionalism and compliance in the industry.  This also meets our objectives to ensure recruiters have the necessary tools available, to assess identity documents, and validate individuals’ right to work in the UK.”

REC Chief Executive Kevin Green, said: “NSL Validation Solutions provide a range of products that will help our members demonstrate their commitment to the correct levels of checks on individuals working in the UK. The products and discounts will offer REC members cost savings and a competitive advantage.”
