Tim Wood – Managing Director, ChalkFace Recruitment Ltd

A major part of our recruitment challenge is to provide evidence to hiring managers that we have done all we can to minimise the risks associated with hiring staff for environments where many of the service users – often children and the elderly – are particularly vulnerable. Working with these groups requires both the right motivation and relevant experience. AVS is a tool that can help us to screen out applicants who are not the right fit for these jobs, have an inappropriate history, or in the worst cases, are deliberately looking to infiltrate the world of care for other purposes.
