Leisure, Sport and Tourism

As a business owner or recruitment manager in the Leisure, Sport and Tourism sector, you know how critical it is to build a team of trustworthy, reliable staff members. Your employees often work closely with the public, including children and vulnerable adults, in settings like hotels, resorts, gyms, spas, and tourist attractions. Safeguarding the well-being of your customers and protecting your organisation’s reputation requires robust background screening processes for all new hires.

At APCS, we offer a range of specialised criminal record checks and verification services tailored to the unique needs of the Leisure, Sport and Tourism industry. By partnering with us for your pre-employment screening, you can make informed hiring decisions, reduce risk, and create a safer environment for your customers and staff.

DBS Checks: Identifying Criminal Histories

Depending on the specific roles within your organisation, you may need to conduct different levels of DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checks on your job candidates. These checks reveal relevant criminal convictions, cautions, reprimands, and warnings, helping you assess whether an individual is suitable for a particular position.

For many roles in Leisure, Sport and Tourism, a Basic DBS Check may suffice. This check discloses any unspent convictions or conditional cautions, providing a baseline level of assurance. It is available for all job roles and sectors, even those that don’t typically require a DBS check.

However, if your employees will be working directly with children or vulnerable adults, such as in a coaching, instructional, or caregiving capacity, an Enhanced DBS Check is essential. This comprehensive check includes spent and unspent convictions and cautions, as well as any relevant information held by local police. In eligible roles, it may also include a check against the children’s and adults’ barred lists.

By conducting the appropriate level of DBS check through APCS, you can make informed decisions about a candidate’s suitability and mitigate the risk of hiring individuals with concerning criminal histories.

Digital Identity Checks: Verifying Candidate Authenticity

In addition to criminal record checks, verifying the identity of your job applicants is crucial for preventing fraud and ensuring compliance. APCS offers cutting-edge Digital Identity Checks that streamline the verification process while enhancing security.

With our digital solution, candidates can easily upload their identity documents via smartphone, and our system will match their live facial image against the documents in real-time. This biometric verification eliminates the risk of forged documents and provides a faster, more reliable alternative to traditional manual checks.

By incorporating Digital Identity Checks into your hiring process, you can be confident that your candidates are who they claim to be, reducing the risk of identity fraud and maintaining the integrity of your workforce.

Digital Right to Work Checks: Ensuring Legal Employment

As an employer in the UK, you have a legal obligation to ensure that all your employees have the right to work in the country. Failure to conduct proper Right to Work checks can result in significant fines and reputational damage.

APCS’s Digital Right to Work Checks simplify the process of verifying a candidate’s eligibility to work in the UK. Our innovative solution allows you to quickly and securely check the status of UK and Irish citizens, ensuring compliance with Home Office regulations.

By replacing manual document checks with our digital service, you can streamline your onboarding process, reduce administrative burdens, and have peace of mind knowing that your workforce is legally employed.
