Callcredit provides employee vetting solution to Huntress Group

Huntress GroupCallcredit Information Group is pleased to announce the renewal of its relationship with specialist recruitment business Huntress Group to provide candidate vetting.

The renewed contract means Huntress Group will continue to have an in-house employee vetting service enabling them to perform a quick and easy credit check to review the ‘financial soundness’ of a candidate. Through corroborative checks, Callcredit’s CallReport product helps Huntress to assess the integrity and good character of a candidate and therefore provide employers with a higher quality candidate list.

CallReport is an industry standard credit report which confirms a candidate’s name, address and the presence or absence of any adverse public data such as court judgments (CCJ/HCJs), bankruptcies and insolvencies (BAIs), and individual voluntary arrangements (IVAs).  In addition, the solution provides Huntress with other key information at previous addresses, by making available the last six years of address history, and a score - which ranks consumers in order of their relative risk based on the public data.

Peter Mansfield, Managing Director, Callcredit Information Group said: “Spending a lot of time interviewing applicants only to then see that time wasted, can be very frustrating.  By pre-screening candidates, Huntress benefits from ensuring they are appropriate for the vacancy and, ultimately, helping their clients to recruit the right person for their business.  We have been working with Huntress Group for four years and look forward to continue working with such a well-known and trusted company.”

Andrea Lee, Director, Huntress Group said: “We are delighted to continue to work with Callcredit. We pride ourselves on and being able to supply only the best talent their market has to offer, so being able to offer this level of screening to our clients is vital to maintaining our long-standing relationships, which are built on trust and consistency of service.”
