It is important that all organisations have a clear recruitment process, robust policies and procedures which are always followed during recruitment campaigns. To STOP unsuitable individuals being employed within organisations, we need to have appropriate barriers in place. A clear recruitment process is the first step towards safer recruitment, enhancement of equality and to ensure a return on investment.

    Safer Recruitment needs to be run in conjunction with a Safeguarding course relevant to your industry.
