We complete over a million checks per year and have a wealth of experience across a wide range of industries, from policing and financial services to health and education.

The Reed difference
At Reed we pride ourselves in our effective and efficient service - by working with us to screen your workforce we can guarantee a quality screening service that ensures compliance and substantially reduces your organisational risk.
Each year we conduct over a million searches across 116 countries, and we are a trusted partner of hundreds of organisations across multiple sectors, providing accurate vetting results; so much so that we have a 0% error rate on DBS checks versus a 10.8% national average.
Our services are available 24/7 and we have an average turnaround of 5 days across over 500,000 checks.
As industry leaders, we also work alongside several government and regulatory bodies such as the Home Office, DBS, Cifas, Disclosure Scotland, AFODD, and CQC, to name a few.
Keith Rosser, Reed’s Director of Group Risk and Reed Screening, serves as Council Leader for the PBSA, Vetting Lead of CIFAS, the Chair of the CRTB, a Member of ECHO, and Chair of JobsAware - feeding into legislative reviews and defining strategies to benefit the industry.
We work with the government and other screening and regulatory bodies to ensure we stay ahead of the curve when it comes to developments and changes in screening and compliance.
Our 60 years’ experience in recruitment has afforded us the ability to understand a multitude of supply models and organisational pressures, allowing us to best-judge the solution to suit you.
Not only can we work with your company providing one-off, off-the-shelf screening packages, but we are also able to partner with you to offer flexible, bespoke services to fit the needs of your whole supply chain, mitigating any vetting-based risks.
