safeguarding

We specialise in education so safeguarding and vetting is an essential part of what we do everyday. It is an area where there is no margin for error, which is why we give it the highest priority in our business and are meticulous and systematic in our implementation of policies and routines.

Unlike some recruitment companies, we have a dedicated in-house Compliance Team who operate independently of our recruitment consultants and whose sole purpose is to ensure that our rigorous safeguarding policies and procedures are not only followed, but are compliant with statutory requirements and updated regularly.

We ensure our processes and service enable our clients to satisfy their obligations under legislation or guidance notes such as the DfE’s ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’. We also go beyond our own obligations in terms of the specific checks we carry out to ensure thorough due diligence. We believe in complete transparency, so will keep you informed throughout the recruitment process as to the status and results of a candidate's vetting and screening checks.

As a business, we understand the need for clarity with regard to the information we hold on file to ensure we fulfil our client’s requirements, as well as our constant aim to exceed them.

Our candidates are subject to the following checks as part of our recruitment process:

  • Right To Work in UK (RTW)
  • DBS disclosure
  • Overseas clearances (if applicable)
  • Children’s Barred List check
  • NCTL Prohibition check
  • Qualifications
  • Registration form
  • References

Although we follow our own stringent process, we are flexible in our approach and are happy to incorporate specific checks you may require.

“At the College we have a strict policy on safeguarding. The safety of our students and members of staff are at the forefront of all of our recruitment practices. Therefore, it is imperative that any recruitment agency we work with shares and upholds strict vetting procedures as a matter of practice.”

“We have worked alongside Boston Rose for a number of years and we feel that they are one of the few agencies that we can rely on to have high standard vetting procedures. Boston Rose has always ensured that we receive the best service from start to finish.

All pre-employment checks are conducted thoroughly and meet the expectation of the College. They have a transparent vetting process, so we are never left in the dark. The process of timesheets is simple and quick, and if there are any issues, the back office team is always there to help.”

“There is nothing we take more seriously than our vetting and safeguarding process and the safety of young people is at the forefront of all of our recruitment practices. Therefore it is imperative that we use a recruitment agency that we can trust and upholds their own strict vetting procedures as a matter of practice.”

“We have worked with Boston Rose for a number of years and we can rely on them to ensure these checks are done to the highest level. The whole process with Boston Rose is very good, with all information being communicated clearly and efficiently.

We would not hesitate to recommend Boston Rose”

“We have worked with Boston Rose more recently than before due to their conscientious attitude to student safety and communication with their well informed consultants. Concerns with smaller agencies made us look to Boston Rose and we are happy we did so.”

"There is nothing we take more seriously than our vetting and safeguarding process and the safety of young people is at the forefront of all of our recruitment practices. Therefore it is imperative that we use a recruitment agency that we can trust and who uphold their own strict vetting procedures as a matter of practice. We feel that Boston Rose regularly show a duty of care towards us and our students.

Boston Rose carry out all necessary documentation checks including DBS, right to work, certification of skills and qualifications, two relevant references and overseas police certificates and where needed they adhere to any and all special requests that we require. Their vetting process is fully transparent and second to none with someone in the vetting team always chasing documentation and advising us at every stage.

The process of timesheets was simple and quick and if there are any queries there is a member of the back office team on hand to offer advice and guidance."

“As a large and successful further education college the vetting & screening of our employees is something we take very seriously. Because of this it is important that our partners also take a similar view.”

"Having worked with Boston Rose since 2006 we are confident in their ability to ensure all vetting checks are completed to a high standard. The entire process with Boston Rose is extremely stringent , with all information and updates communicated at regular points throughout the recruitment process.

Boston Rose carry out all necessary documentation checks including DBS, right to work, certification of skills and qualifications, two relevant references and where needed they adhere to any special requests that we require.

Overall we are happy with their level of care and attention and would happily recommend their services to any training provider."
