The construction industry requires a large volume of skilled manpower to ensure projects are completed on time and meet regulations.

Experian provides a range of construction employee screening checks, which enable you to verify a candidate’s credentials before you employ them.

Relevant Checks

Employee background checks can be adapted based on the role and position you are recruiting for – the more senior the role, the more in-depth checks you may wish to complete. Checks for screening staff in the construction industry include:

Identity Check

Credit Check

Criminal Record Checks

Professional Membership

Occupational History

Education Checks

Employment Checks

Personal Reference

Why check?

This industry is exposed to high levels of employee risk, especially when considering the constant turnover of contract workers and foreign nationals that may prove harder to check, against the high value of plant and machinery. Our range of checks can be used to screen your entire workforce, including those working in: construction, design, maintenance and repair, manufacturing, and head office support staff.

Time is of the essence for construction staff. With £12billion a year wasted on poor recruitment*, our background checking tools will help improve the speed of recruitment and also save you money by hiring the right people, first time.
