Speed up hiring with UK Right to Work Identity Verification

Modern hiring starts with identity, and with every company in the UK legally required to carry out Right to Work checks or risk significant fines, verification accuracy is essential. It’s all too easy for someone to obtain forged documents, enabling them to present a false identity when applying for work. With an 8% year-on-year increase in identity fraud1, this is becoming a growing concern for hiring managers everywhere. 1 - Source
Sterling’s new UK Right to Work ID Verification checks a candidate’s identity documents using a unique combination of artificial intelligence and, as required, expert human review, to validate documentation. The net result of the service is that it helps to speed up screening and hiring, provides a better candidate experience, and reduces fraud all at once.
This innovative solution is available to employers as a stand alone service to help ensure UK Right to Work obligations are met, or as part of a wider background screening programme to mitigate the risk of a bad hire.

Technology that helps you
remain compliant

Sterling’s UK Right to Work ID Verification service was developed with compliance in mind and is designed to automatically incorporate future legal obligations and relevant changes in immigration legislation from the UK Home Office. As Brexit negotiations continue, this has never been more important. While liability ultimately lies with the employer, meaning candidates must still present their physical documents before commencing employment, verifying them online in advance as part of a wider candidate background check will speed up the hiring process and provide you with an additional layer of confidence.

Delivering a great employer
and candidate experience

Nearly 70 percent2 of candidates believe the way a company treats them during the hiring process reflects how it treats its employees, which is why providing a UK Right to Work Verification process that can be completed simply and easily via a mobile device is so important. As well as guiding candidates carefully through every step of the process, the intuitive mobile-friendly UK Right to Work Verification service from Sterling provides a positive, technology driven, people-first reflection of your brand. 2 - Source
